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.
(one of these days, I must try out the dinner there at the dining room)

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).

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…
