On an awesome Saturday morning at Chatuchak (JJ Market)

Bangkok was really awesome - even on that week - the weather was really good to me. It was a sunny day, which made it possible for me to walk around the stalls in JJ.

I always wanted to spend more time in JJ, but it never happened, I spent a few hours here, and it wasn't really enough. The stalls are usually opened ~9.30am or 10am (so, it's really no point going there early), and I took the MRT to Kamphaeng Phet Station. It directly leads to the entrance of the market.


There was just so much handicraft to browse. I bought a lot of owls for souvenirs because they are really too cute to be left alone in the basket. Since everyone bought the same souvenir, we actually helped the lady boss to pack into nice plastic bags.

My friend bought many gifts (in bulk) for her wedding. So, JJ is the place for door gifts, wedding favours, birthday packs and etc. I wish to go there again, as I only walked only half of the place, until the clock tower and went back :(

Since it was supposed to be brunch, we stopped by for food. The menu was easy. Just point our fingers at the menu and show the finger 1 to 5.. :)


Phad thai.

Pork noodle clear soup



Some hor fun with tomato gravy (it's just random - it's not even thai food)


Yummy mango sticky rice.
(too much rice - didn't manage to finish it)

 Coconut ice cream and of course, fresh coconuts

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…
