As a travel destination, this region in the world is definitely one that offers one of the widest variety of awesome food to be found anywhere. Hence it is no coincident that you can find many blogs and websites that talk about food and little else, such as this one you’re reading right now.

However, for someone who is planning to hop on a plane and head to Asia, the vast amount of information available online can sometimes be a little overwhelming – enter Expedia’s Food Guide

Expedia food guide main page

The website curates a small but very useful list of eateries that covers classic street eats as well as Michelin star restaurants that serves a good guide for anyone new to the countries.

As of writing, there are ten different Asian destinations in the list:

  • Seoul
  • Hong Kong
  • Osaka
  • Singapore
  • Taipei
  • Bangkok
  • Penang
  • Hanoi
  • Shanghai
  • Bali

Being someone from Penang, I naturally clicked on Penang to check out what’s in their recommended list and indeed places such as Feringgi Grill at Rasa Sayang as well as the Ayer Itam Laksa are listed.

Click on the listing and you’ll get further information, including price, hours, address, phone number, a short description, and even direction with an embedded Google Map.

If you’re visiting any of these destinations for a few days, this is definitely a decent list to start.

Recently we moved to a new place in Shah Alam. After many months of planning, renovation, painting, and moving, we are living in a place we call home, with a neat kitchen we now cook 4-5 times a week, an AV room for TV, a deck, dipping pool, koi pond, and all that.  All said, it is pretty nice, except for one little problem – the lack of fiber Internet service.

my data usage is quite staggering
my data usage is quite staggering, this was just for just a few days

This has prompted me to start looking for mobile plans with a heavy dosage of data cap that can not only serve as a atop gap measure, but as someone who loves to stream music and video (I love my life NFL games) on his mobile phone, a plan that I don’t have to worry by the 2nd week of billing cycle.

U Mobile Hero P70

That’s when I was told about U Mobile’s Hero P70 plan, which seemingly check all the boxes in a plan for such type of user.

Let’s look at what you get under the Hero P70 plan:

  • 7 GB of high speed Internet data
  • Unlimited call to all network
  • No contract needed
  • SMS – 3 sen to U Mobile, 8 sen to other networks
  • Share data among member line

All this is for RM 70 per month and there is no long term contractual obligation. This is making some of the plans I used previously looking pretty pale in comparison, usually with 3 GB or a maximum of 5 GB monthly internet quota that comes with 1-2 years of contract period.

u mobile internet roaming

Best of all, there’s also 50 MB of daily internet roaming for the following countries, which should cover all your instant messaging needs while being abroad:

  • Australia
  • Cambodia
  • Hong Kong
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Philippines
  • Singapore
  • Taiwan
  • Thailand

I know a few friends who travels a lot to Singapore/Thailand and has a habit of flipping SIM cards, this plan would put an end to that annoying practice.

upgrade to P70

For existing users, there’s no extra charges to upgrade from current postpaid plan, and the upgrade can be done online right now.

The promotion ends 31 December 2015, so act now. Head to http://www.u.com.my/postpaid for more information.
