Portraying as a Difficult customer

Few days ago, I had a funny dream.
I dreamt of myself going back to Malacca, a place where I spent for two years.

I went to a shop, and bought ice cream. Apparently, I was allowed to scoop my own flavours and pay based on the amount I took. I think it was RM4.90. I paid and I ate. Then, I was told that they had the wrong pricing (should be more expensive). I screamed and made a scene at the restaurant demanding for the person in charge to speak to me. Nobody bothered. The waiters hid behind, at the kitchen.

Then I thought again, could it be because I had an expensive homemade gula melaka ice cream at Kopi Cine? I told the waiters that the prices shown are overseas prices. (harga seperti berada kat luar negara). And, there was a chinese lady who had a very stern look.

Both linked pretty well. Ice cream + Melaka + expensive + mad lady (I turned into a mad lady).

And, it still bothers me, I was about to leave Melaka, and I have yet to visit Mahkota Parade. Have I been thinking to much of visiting 1st avenue and Straits Quay? Both malls/places opening on 26th Nov 2010.

What's the Difference between 'Net' and "Nett"

Since it's part of my group's job to publish daily billings report to the management, our Director (from US) pinpointed that we should fix the spelling of 'nett billings' to 'net billings'.
My colleauge was looking at google, trying to understand the 'right' spelling to be used.

I finally checked it from Wikipedia, and found that 'nett' is BRITISH and 'net' is AMERICAN.
No wonder he's offended to fix it to 'net'!
C'mon. I'm in an american MNC, I should be more sensitive towards this.

Nyonya Willow is now at Arena Curve

Penang is indeed a food haven, where both tourists and locals are blessed with many good foods. When it comes to Peranakan or rather, Nyonya food, we could never forget Penang..... aside from Malacca and Singapore.

Nyonya Willow used to be located in a home at Sungai Tiram but now it's currently moved to Arena Curve. Getting there is a little tricky as the parking space around Olive Tree hotel is usually full, thus I'd recommend to park inside the Arena curve where the entrance is situated opposite d'piazza.  I personally find that it's now situated in a more strategic place, as it's easily accessible and nearer to my work place.

As it was on a usual weekday lunch, we ordered a few dishes like jiu hu char (RM14) , lor bak (RM16), kapitan chicken (RM16), pork leg vinegar (RM18), perut ikan (RM18) and babi ponteh (RM16). I'd recommend the kapitan chicken and perut ikan, as well as their gulai tumis (I tried it earlier in my previous visit).

Traveling to the Southern Thailand Border - Dannok

It's been a while since I've gotten my passport stamped, thus, I thought I could do a day trip at the southern Thailand border. Being a frequent traveler to Thailand, I've always booked a van service to take me to the border. This time, it's really my first time trying out going to the border by foot.

It wasn't a good day for me as I forgotten to bring my umbrella.
Thus, I bought a not-so-nice one that day.
Moreover exchange rate is really bad. It's like 8.30 rate.
Then, I didn't know how to get the immigration form. So i chose the easier way to go to the shop and get it printed out (I later found out from my next trip that i can walk into the office to get one)

I started my walk along the shops to take a look at clothes, food, and also I bought a floor mat (funny, i thought it was nice). Also, not forgetting 7-11 for the cold drinks.
The weather was really crazy that I stopped at McD for free wifi and aircon, and the samurai pork burger.

 Seriously, tahpau…
