Malaysia Most Wanted MAP is ALIVE!

After months of preparation and testing, Malaysia Most Wanted (MMW) is proud to launch Map of Malaysia, to help you reach the destination and understand the surrounding neighborhood.

How does it work?
We have an online map (using Google Map Technology) which shows proper street maps and satellite images of the area. We added in Placemark (small little meaningful icons to indicate the nature of the place) which label the surrounding buildings and area, such as Banks, Parks, Offices, Shopping Malls and etc to help you easily identify and understand the area. You could search for any address or name of places / buildings / business to find your desired map with its surrounding places clearly marked.

Why do I need it?
To help you find your away around unfamiliar places by showing the correct map with proper landmarks. Especially when I want to find a particular shop or attend an interview in unfamiliar address, or finding good food around Ipoh or places to travel in Penang.

To help you understand the neighborhood and surrounding area better, such as what are the public amenities around, or are there any hidden lake or places that I never noticed before. I might be considering of moving to Bandar Baru Klang, and I am interested to know how developed is the place and what shops are available within walking distance.

Why is certain map empty without any Placemark?
We are currently working on marking as much of Malaysia as possible, so quite a number of places are not fully covered yet. You could do you part by helping us to mark area you are familiar with, by clicking on “Add Placemark” at the left hand corner of the Map.

We hope Malaysia Most Wanted Map will make Malaysia more accessible and make finding places as easy as 123.

Malaysian Food & Restaurant Review: October 2008

The October 2008 Most Visited Food Venue (based on Google Analytics pageview), brought to you by Malaysia Most Wanted Food and Restaurants.

This month, the top 3 spot went to Buffet (Malaysian sure is Tham Jiak), and Japanese food influenced buffet. I realise Shogun and Saisaki are probably sister company, and it is good value for money at the moment.
  1. Shogun, Japanese Buffet @ One Utama, Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya, Selangor
  2. Saisaki Japanese Buffet @ Wisma UOA II, Jalan Pinang, Kuala Lumpur
  3. Jogoya @ Starhill, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur
The “Night View of KL” spot: Look Out Point is still pretty popular, followed by the ever affordable Yuen Buffet Steamboat with its hot chicken wing. It’s a surprise that Hajime is at the 6th spot now, either it is really good or people are more loaded during the bad economy time, or both. The Best Satay of Malaysia from the Satay Town: Restoran Sate Kajang Hj. Samuri is still holding strong, followed by the shabby Williams Mamak and classy Sky Bar.

Others notable mentions include the all time favourite Shabu Shabu and Bumbu Bali in Puchong, Delicious Café in Bangsar, The Cave and Murni in SS2, Chef & Brew in Bukit Damansara, Boat House in TTDI and Ninja Jones in Mid Valley.

Some not so new comers (for those who got tired of the good old food and want something fresh), you could check out Cupcake Chic (The Curve), Opus (Bangsar), Tasty Pot Restaurant (Taman Mewah Jaya, PJ), Agefuku Japanese Restaurant (USJ Taipan), Shilla Korean Buffer (The Curve), Big Plate (Subang Permai) and Nihon Kai Japanese Restaurant (Old Klang Road).

Bon Appetite.
