Oil leak in engine bay?

There has been a oil leak in engine area, got that checked and the guy told me it's a rocker cover gasket so I got that done last week. I was driving the car today and saw white smoke coming out from under the bonnet, when opened I saw it's coming from somewhere near exhaust manifold as fresh oil must be dripping on that. Any ideas what it could be as clearly is not the rocker cover car is automatic with 53k miles on clock. Please help!!

Unfortunately rocker cover is most likely the issue again in that particular area, only other oil source near turbos are the turbo oil lines, but that would spray out.
