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.  :)

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).

First trip of the year 2016 -- Hatyai

Following the previous day trip to Dannok, I finally had a short vacation in Hatyai, This is probably one of my many trips to Hatyai, but this time, I didn't really spend a lot of time around Lee Gardens Hotel area.

I've never really blogged on the details of my journey to Hatyai, so here it is...


Going through the immigration is much easier compared to the immigration at the airport. In the past, I have always gotten the immigration form (They call it the 'white card') from the money changers at Changloon. In fact, it is easily accessible at the immigration office on the left hand side. Parking is also easy and free while awaiting for our passports to be stamped.


Danok is always famous for pork leg rice. So here it is. I love the sweet and sour chilies.


The chicken kuih chiap along the way. It tasted like bak kut teh compared to the normal kueh chiap dish.


After lunch, i finally managed to checked in to Wungnoy Hotel. I would recommend this hotel, as it felt more like…
