Uncle Albert's Traditional English Fish and Chips, Straits Quay, Penang

Whenever I go for fish and chips, it reminds me somewhere far, like the Fremantle fish&chips or the fish & chips at Bondi Beach. I have never liked the frozen fish and chips fillet, so, the fish and chips at Uncle Albert's is good for me. Well, it has almost the same style as Blue Reef's, except that over here, there is a free soup and iced lemon tea (I cant remember if it's for orders before 8pm or so)

This place is perfect for a weekend!
While strolling along the marina, and shopping at the flea market,  at the same time, there are many restaurants for pit stops!

So, here I am, trying out this place, after so long (they have already opened since 2013).
While reading about this place, it seems that this restaurant started in Greentown, Ipoh. So, Penang is the 2nd branch. (I would believe so)


The soup of the day


The generous portion of fish and chips with iced lemon tea.
I honestly cant remember which fish I have picked, but probably the cheapest from the menu (halibut, perhaps).  However, it's really a satisfying dinner.


Had traditional coconut ice cream from the flea market (same pasar malam vendor- but shes selling at RM7 instead of RM6 - in pasar malams)

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…
