    Where To Eat And Where Not To

    Let's work together and save money. Who's in? Very simple. Just list down restaurants that increase prices at their whims and fancies. At the same time, share with us where you last enjoyed good food at reasonable prices. Ready?

    Avoid:
    1. Wantan mee stall at DeHappyland Restaurant, USJ14. Increased their price by 50 sen when petrol prices were at its lowest.


    Recommended
    :
    1. Malay nasi lemak stall just outside Petronas, USJ14. Mornings only, weekdays. No price increase.
    2. Pork noodles at Nanking Restaurant, Taipan. No price increase.

    Please add on. The more, the merrier!

    Good worthwhile topic!.. Sokong! sokong!

    Meanwhile I would insist to avoid ANY restaurant that charge gomen tax or GST now or in the near future.
    Think thrice before buying anything with GST.
    Continue to refrain or avoid ordering any drinks from any restaurant. A bottle of plain drinking water from home is best for me...period!

    That is the problem with him. Always has an excuse to take the day off. One time, no water. Another time, wife sick. Aiyuu. I sick to ask him already. But his nasi lemak is good and affordable. And he did not increase his price. Not yet anyway. Fingers crossed he won't in the near future.

    Thank you.

    Drinks from these coffee shops are of low quality anyway. A fine example is the suet char. No taste and worse, it is sometimes served in a smelly glass/plastic cup. Like last night at Lam Chuan (USJ14). The tea was average but the glass smelled like crap. Tiu!

    Just to share. The best Nasi Lemak I know and desire to enjoy is one from Temerloh, Pahang. NO NL in my view, at any place in Klang Valley can match this. I can eat this without getting fedup of the taste or monotony. Have been there since the late 70's. The one nearby my place..Opah something..me cannot swallow aledy...my tastebuds tell me its monotonous.
    Of course this is a very personal preference.

    P.S. I just had it last nite..tar pow all the way from there.

    Of course!..typical of local economy shops. Least quality, don't care about your health, only wanna extract your money! Lei sei, lei ke si!

    In view of imminent or current trend of "simply raising prices" I highly recommend people to
    1) Cook from home, bring own food to work. Don't be lazy, no time or say dunno.. anything is possible. This is a workaround, not another burden.
    2) Bring own water to drink. Plain water is always good.
    3) Eat out less..money is hard earned for most people. This is not for people who earn quite a lot and easily more than most, yet no eye see to price increases, don't want to argue with them.
    4) Keep your current car and maintain as-is. Don't buy new car for next few years. I will be very happy for them when there's near zero car sales figures. You save precious money on a huge liability for sure. Every new car price IS NOT WORTH what its asking for.
    5)Holidaying out is also not cheap. Go if it means so much...
    6)Sokong in full to all those places to avoid as mentioned above. They're not there to ease your burden but to extract the most from your pocket, just because you need what they offer.
    Me being blunt and frank..no offence to anyone.
