Salute by Wacoal at Parkson, Gurney Plaza

I was overly excited to be invited by Wacoal to a sophisticated fashion show launch party at Parkson Gurney, Penang on the 23rd of Nov, 2012. I have always wanted to go, as a parkson elite card member, but the slots were usually full by the time I've decided to call in to register.

I'm lucky this time, to be invited.. :D

Since young, I have known Wacoal as known brand for quality and best undergarments. Some would even buy and stock up when they are in Thailand (I dont know why, that's what most people tell me that it's cheaper there).

With this fashion launch party, the registered participants would have the chance to enjoy a special cash rebates from the cash vouchers provided.

In this luxurious and glamourous launch party, Wacoal introduced the European flair lingerie line named, Salute, to Malaysian women, which is in line with Wacoal's core belief, "to contribute to women". The inner wear is mostly laced, giving that British-look, and classy, yet designed specially for Asian women (like me).

 At the same time, some snacks to fill up the tummy before the show begins

Btw, it's my first time shooting bras.*lol*

 The final catwalk

 I was overwhelmed with the crowd at Parkson Gurney. Almost couldn't catch a glimpse of the fashion show (I blame my height)

 The models were just stunningly pretty, putting on the salute line

 I went fitting for one of the Salute brands. And then, I thought, it would be great to own one of these...

One of the five lucky draw winners, smiling :)
 Thanks to Wacoal for inviting me for this special event. Not only I had the chance to be the first to preview their latest salute line of lingerie, but received a goodie bag. Loved the gifts :)

Salute collection is available at Parkson Gurney, Parkson Pavilion and Parkson KLCC.
Go grab some :)

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).

 Our lunch spread :)

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…
