An afternoon to kill at Plan B, Ipoh

It was a much awaited day to visit Plan b at Ipoh (at Jalan Panglima),since it's nearest Plan b from Penang (No, I have never been to any of their outlets around the Klang valley). Although we have Ben's, but I thought that the concept between Ben's and Plan b maybe slightly different. In terms of food served, I see the consistency in them. They turned the old shop lot at the corner of the old town of Ipoh into a place where I could sit back, relax and enjoy the tranquil of the quiet town.

In fact, it was not part of the itinerary that day to drop by Plan b, as most of my friends wanted to try authentic Ipoh food instead. Since there was not much to do with a filled stomach while waiting for dinner time, we ended up with A Plan b at Plan b. So, there is always A Plan b. :)

The bottle display. 
The lights/lamps fascinated me. 
THINKBIG. That's the wi-fi password, which happens to be the same as Ben's.

The bar, and the cake display.

The shaded outdoor area, with cozy couches and floors preserving the old small white tiles. If i see it correctly, the couch covers are gunny sacks!

An asian tounge: Sweet potatoes fries with blue cheese+thousand island

My latte... 

The lonely sugar
I can't comment much about the food, as I didn't order any food!
But, I can guarantee that the sweet potato fries were nice, but it's just expensive (RM20), perhaps, the blue cheese is an expensive ingredient, but I did not finish up the dipping. (how wasteful it was).

Interestingly, this cafe is located just beside Roquette Cafe, and now, that makes me having another reason to visit Ipoh again!

What would it be like leaving Plan b without taking a picture of the light bulbs

Think big.  :)
(and again, I realized that big starts with the letter b)

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…
