You have not visited Penang if you have not come to Penang Hill!

It was one of the normal nights that I decided to take a train ride up to Penang Hill. The last time i took a train ride was last year, when a relative came visiting.

Going to Penang Hill in the evening is much cooler, and the view of Georgetown was just amazing!!
Reminds me of the cool breezy nights in cameron highlands as most of time when I'm up at Penang hill, i was hot and sweaty from the 5km hike from the Botanical Gardens jeep route.

As the evening gets darker, the food court operators start to close the business, leaving only David Brown's Restaurant serving food and drinks. At the terrace, one can enjoy the view while sipping a cup of tea, or even a glass of wine, cocktail or even beer!

Though it was not my first time dining at David Brown's, but it was definitely my first time having dinner there. I would really recommend visitors to come by during the evening.

Isn't Penang pretty?

Having dinner in the open air is really cool!

Sky terrace. Music, good view, drinks. what else do we need?

I found lavenders !

The love locks now is filled with locks! So much different since a year ago when it started.

Skywalk only completed this year. Worth dropping by :)

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…
