Shopping at Bangkok - Terminal 21 (Asok/Sukhumvit)

It's been like 5 years since I last visited Bangkok city and the last few times I went, it was only a few days trip. At that time, I was really privileged to have people taking me out. And now, since Air Asia made it possible for everyone to fly, I finally booked the tickets and decided to go again to look-see.

Since Bangkok is a city, it's always having traffic jam, so the most strategic place to stay is to the nearest BTS/MRT station. I was actually contemplating if I should stay around Pratunam for cheap bargains, but I ended up staying around Sukhumvit. I lived just opposite Terminal 21 and would visit that mall every time the train stops there. Well, it's literally, passing by the mall on my way back to the hotel.

It's a themed mall. Every floor represents different country, and we should also visit every toilets in every floor. Best part is to test the 'toilet bowl'.... :D

The only place that I always visit is h&m and the grocery store, Gourmet Market. Almost every night, I'd pick an item to eat. And not forgetting the restaurants - dinner/supper is the place :)

I was at Paris .:)

And, the Japanese themed floor.

 mostly selling bras and lingerie and pretty dinner gowns


I like London too :)

And the united states of America

And other random pictures..
Nothing much that i bought here - but if we were to stop by Emporium (BTS station: Phrom Phong), there is a big two-storey Naraya store. But since Emporium is under major renovation, it's not the best time to visit yet - but most brands are available there. However, greyhound cafe is available there.

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…
