Advance Search for Malaysia Property & Real Estates

Easy searching had always been the core principal behind all Malaysia Most Wanted design, and the same goes for Malaysia Most Wanted Property.

Introducing Advance Search for Property (muck like for Food), to help you narrow down your search easily to find your dream property. The following are all the fields available to be searched for:
  • Search for, where you could use any keywords (which does not fall into any of the other fields)
  • Project Name, the name of the property project, such as Bandar Bukit Puchong, Space U8, etc
  • Price, to specify your price, such as around 100K, 300-500K, less than 500K, >500K and etc
  • Type, to specify the property type such as Condominium, Terrace Link and etc
  • Developer, to search for certain developer
  • Location, to search by state, area or location

You don’t have to fill in all the criteria or fields; you could start by 1 criteria and narrow the search result down by more criteria later.

Words Recommendation is available to help you select your criteria more effectively. The recommended list will get shorter all you type in more characters. Notice the double quote around each select word(s) from the list, which is more exact matching. For example, Bandar Bukit Puchong without the double quote will find result which match either Bandar OR Bukit OR Puchong (Bandar could return many irrelevant result, such as Bandar Bukit Tinggi). Putting a double quote around “Bandar Bukit Puchong” ensure exact match and better results in this case.

Word Recommendation

Now we had spoiled you with the choice of Simple, Advance and Google Search, as usual :)

Malaysia Food Review: May 2008

The May Food 2008 Most Viewed Food Venue (based on Google Analytics pageview) result for Malaysia Most Wanted FOOD.

Shogun, Japanese Buffet @ One Utama, Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya, Selangor is still holding strong on the no 1 spot. I guess it does have an advantage for being in a popular shopping complex become the talk of the town. Maybe I should give it a try someday and add to the statistic.

Saisaki Japanese Buffet @ Wisma UOA II, Jalan Pinang, Kuala Lumpur had gained the no 2 spot, another Japanese buffer which had been around for quite a while. Malaysia must have been crazy about buffet these days.

Neway Karaoke @ Cheras Plaza, Taman Segar, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur is still at the top 3, and I wonder why. Izzit because of Cheras folks, or izzit about karaoke, it can’t be about the food right?

As usually, we have the same old popular venues like Look Out Point, Jogoya, Sky Bar, Yuen Buffet, Tupai Tupai, Bumbu Bali, SS2 Murni, New Paris and etc.

Some of the noticeable newcomer include Carl’s Jr, which serve very expensive charbroil burger. Matsuba Japanese Restaurant in Desa Sri Hartamas is coming up, and Pantai Seafood Restaurant at Kaya Ara is no stranger as well. Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant at Chulan Square seems to be gaining popularity fast, and perhaps it’s worth to check out Big Plate Restaurant at Subang Permai.

Though there are not much changes in the top 10 spot, but the top 50 does introduces many new places worth checking out. Maybe it’s time to switch it to be top 100 instead, the more choices the better?
