The Living Room at Macalister Mansion

Back then, there was no TWG yet in Penang, thus, there are some that would drop by to Living Room for an afternoon tea. 

It was last year when I came and I have not make it a point to blog about it until now..

Very pretty interior and exterior. Well coordinated whites and greens.

I was waiting for the food that I ordered, thus, I walked around for some pictures of the place.

The open area that connects to the dining room and toilet.

Complimentary bread 





Dessert of the day to pick from the counter

TWG teas :)

It's been almost half a year ago that I have forgotten most of the finer details. The service was excellent and the food was good. But, I would like to comment that the staff were very attentive. One of the staff saw that I left my bag on the floor thus, he pushed a small stool over and asked me to place my bag on the stool instead. I believe he didn't want to see that my bag gets dirty, but it's really very sweet of him to do that. Plus points (+ + + ) for this place. 

I wouldn't mind coming back again. This place is indeed very suitable for quiet gatherings, away from the noise like most restaurants in the shopping malls.

And also, I would like to thank my two sisters for treating me lunch :D :D

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 :)

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…
