Property Price Comparison for Puchong Area

Malaysia Most Wanted: Property Prices manage to cover about 90% of Puchong area which are actively on sale/rent for the past 6 months, which include 44 location / taman.

We generate a comparison chart of Average Property Price for Terrace House in Puchong area for the past 6 months. It seems like Bandar Puchong Jaya and Bandar Puteri is 2 of the most expensive area in Puchong, costing around RM 300 per square feet.

We shall strive to provide more accurate data and cover more areas in the very near future.

Analyse Malaysia Property Prices with Google Map and Public Amenities

Three of the most important aspect of property price analysis is location, location and location. Besides knowing where, we need to know the surrounding areas and its public amenities.

For young family, we need to know if the school is nearby. For convenient, we need to be near to hypermarket. For lifestyle, it needs to be near shopping. For a healthy living environment, we need parks and shopping complex. For happiness, we need lots of good food around.

With Malaysia Property Price Analysis with Google Map plus Public Amenities Landmarks, we will show you what you need to know.

Malaysia Property Prices with Google Map integration

Besides showing the property price trend and analysis, we think it's important for you to know the actual location of your future dream home.

For those not familiar with areas such as Puchong, we added Google Map integration to show you where the actual property is located. From there, you could find the nearby properties within 5km radius.

What’s next? We will show you what the nearby amenities (banks, markets, parks, etc) are.

In the meantime, visit Malaysia Property Price Analysis!

Malaysia Property Price Analysis

The original idea behind Malaysia Most Wanted is property analysis, where we shall provide the price trend so that you know which area is performing better. We start with listing of new properties followed by food to create awareness of the existence MMW, so that when we finally have the price trend, you can actually find it.

We try to secure some funding through this and this, but they claim the idea is either useless or can’t make any money. I do agree making money might be difficult (and I am giving away this information for free), but the idea of property price trend is far from useless. At the end, we have no choice but to self fund.

Today we finally took the first step to analyse the property price trend for Puchong area, where you could see the price and rental movement for the past 6 months. We categorise them nicely into location and property type (apartment, terrace, bungalow, etc) so that the estimation is slightly more accurate (though not perfect yet).

The prices shown here are asking price, meaning the price owner or agent ask for when they put up an advertisement for sale/rent (so it is not the actual transaction price, as such information is pricy and not open to public).

This is just the first baby step where we have more features in the pipeline. Not good enough? Don’t worry; we will come up with more data (covering more areas), integration of map, comparison charts and many more!

Stay tune to Malaysia’s one and only Property Price Analysis!

Malaysian Food & Restaurant Review: May 2009

The May 2009 Most Visited Food Venue (based on Google Analytics pageview), brought to you by Malaysia Most Wanted Food and Restaurants.

For the Top 3 spots, we have the ever popular
  1. Saisaki Japanese Buffet @ Jalan Pinang, Kuala Lumpur
  2. Shogun, Japanese Buffet @ Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya, Selangor
  3. Look Out Point @ Jalan Ampang-Hulu Langat, Ampang, Selangor
Saisaki and Shogun had dominated the top 2 spot for quite a while, and Look Out Point is the new No.3.

Li Jin @ Pavilion KL is gaining popularity probably due to their promotion on newspaper, and The Cave @ SS2 is also becoming popular as the “couple place”.

Then we have the regulars like Yuen Buffet Steamboat Restaurant and Restoran Shabu Shabu. Jogoya is still holding at no.8 spot and the exclusive Hajime Japanese Restaurant at no. 10. Others include Bumbu Bali and Delicious Café.

The elusive William Mamaks is gaining momentum at no. 13, followed by other new comers such as KOKOPELLI Travellers Bistro @ PJ, Full House @ Ara Damansara, Nancy’s Kitchen @ Jonker Street and Carnaval Churrascaria @ Damansara Jaya.

Most viewed (or “popularity”) doesn’t equal good food, but it is something which you could take note of and decide for yourself :)

The State of Malaysia Food Websites

After reading on TheEdge’s netv@lue 2.0 review (May 04, 2009) of which boast 1.5 millions hit per months, MMW Food feel the urge to check out the current state of Malaysia Food websites.

I start googling for “Malaysia Food” and “Malaysia Restaurant” and start feeding all the Malaysia food-related websites into Google Ad Planner (bloggers hosted on cannot be added due to some technical reasons) to check our their monthly web traffic (other tools include Alexa, Compete and Quantqast).

To my delight, is at the number 1 spot with 100K Unique Visitors and 560K Page Views per month. To be fair, only 75% of the traffics belongs Food & Travel blogger is at second place with 30K monthly Unique Visitors followed by, and are in the top 5 as well.

Web Traffic Estimation from Google Ad Planner is not 100% accurate, but it can give a good estimated if used together with other tools such as Alexa. Again, all results are estimation on best effort basis by Independent party.

Basically there are 3 types of Food Websites in Malaysia (and some are hybrid)
  1. Food Directory and Search Engine like Malaysia Most Wanted Food
  2. Food Media Company like FriedChillies and BestFoodJunction
  3. Food Bloggers like and others

Malaysia Most Wanted Food is a purely Internet only Food Directory and Search Engine which links to thousands of independent reviews by Food Bloggers, thus we need to have the strongest presence online. Food Media Company might cover alternate media beside Internet such as Magazine, TV, Newspaper, Coupon, Road Show and etc. Food Bloggers gave the most genuine and independent reviews with a personal touch.
