Ninetology launches second experiential center in Gurney Paragon, Penang

* Updates: the store is already closed in Paragon Penang

Finally, Ninetology has arrived Penang on the 5th July 2014.

Many may have not heard of Ninetology. Ninetology is an ASEAN mobile device technology company.
The centre was first launched in Low Yat Plaza, Kuala Lumpur, and now it has arrived Penang. The center focuses on upholding  Ninetology’s  after  sales  service,  9care.  9care  is  available  both  online and offline, hence users can now find convenience to identify or solve any issues regarding their devices.

Ninetology’s strategic plan includes an opening of another experiential center in Klang Valley, which will be unveiled very soon.

Looking at the merchandise around the store

“Our Experiential Centers celebrates freedom of expression with a wide offering of our latest Ninetology U9 smart phones and lifestyle accessories that cater to consumers with a wide variety of interests including technology, fashion, art and so forth.  Here at our center, we do not only showcase our products, but it is a place where consumers can indulge the ‘urbanite’ environment and convenience alongside the recent introduction to our eChannel. Our smart phones can be purchased through our outlets and eChannel with efficient payment gateways for ultimate convenience at their finger tips,” said Sean Ng, Chief Executive Officer of Ninetology ASEAN.

Giveaways during the launch

 There was also champagne toast and light refreshment was served (yummy finger food!)

  Online shopping is available and in-store experience

Phones on displays

They were heavily promoting the U9 Z1T. Honestly, the price is really competitive for a Snapdragon 400.
No contract required and it's only RM899. There is also a rebate of RM200 (see the link)

During the launch, there was an unlock screen challenge. For just RM1, you can have 1 try to unlock the phone and win it.

Ninetology’s Experiential Center in Gurney Paragon is now opened to public, since May 2014.

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…
