I think there is a super surge of Malaysia passport renewal June 2022 and I did it online and chose Immigration Jalan Duta as they are very efficient. This is what I learned that you can get your passport done in 2 hours or less than that. Do note that due to huge volume of renewal, now they are operating 8am – 10pm (YES! 10PM – mostly Klang Valley) – click here for their announcement

Find out Immigration center in Malaysia

There are a few easy steps to renew your passport currently through their online system :

Step 1: Renew your passport thru our Malaysia Immigration website

Step 2: very important to upload your pictures correctly

Step 3: you will receive email once all is completed 3rd day onwards. If failed also you will receive email. If you did not receive email on 3rd day onwards also can direct go to immigration center as mostly already ready.

Current Situation:

  1. If you receive email on failed thumbprint
  2. Failed Pictures

Do not bother by calling the immigration hotline as I have been doing that for at least 1 day cuz mine is failed picture upload twice. Till I decided to visit the center in the morning to clarify.

Immigration jalan dutaThis is the situation at 7am and I got shocked. Loook at the queeeeeee. I ask the rela memeber there and asked what time did the first person reach here? he said 6am! Damm!!! It had been daily for the past 10 days. I queue for 10 minutes then I felt it is not right as I just wanted to find out the issue of my rejected picture thru online. Manage to find 1 lady officer and she guided me awesome. Ask me to go back, prepare all my failed picture mention in email and receipt come back any time after 3pm as there are less people. passport renew malaysia On the way back from work and since its jam, I just turn in to try my luck to test what the officer told me is it true or not, for me also to kill time anyway instead of jamming back home. It was 6.15pm and ohhhmygoooddd!!!! Its empty!

I ask the officer, at counter 11 for numbering and guess what. NEXT Number is ME! .Verify my details, IC and passport then snap a new picture on the spot and DONE in 5 FREAKING MINUTES! Was told to come back next day anytime. Queue could be only less than 30 minutes by luck -2-3 hours. He advise again to come after 3pm. Less people from the morning effect.

Immigration malaysia

I got it done less than 5 minutes and park right at the entrance. Do not have to find parking in the morning and round and round for parking space! This is just so easy!

What you do not need to do is wake up early at 5-6am then drive there super early to be no.1 in queue to get it done within 2-4 hours, cramp with people, stand in non air condition sweating all the way. Now can do it at your convenience and just need to go back twice. If you wish to get your passport on the day. I was best advice to reach before 4pm and depends on the crowd in the morning. (so yah, go back twice and done within 1-2 hours) – i would rather do that.

If you do not follow online registration Step 1-3 online you can do walk in at your any convenience time. Walk in process:

Step 1: take number

Step 2: take picture at the booth

Step 3: make payment:

Step 4: go back to original counter to share to the officer that you have paid

Step 5: take another number for collection

Step 6: leave the building and go back la!

Collected my passport 1 week later at 9pm for just less than 15 minutes wait. The queue was less and remember go to the counter and let officer know that you are here to collect as already renew since last week. 

Little did I know that actually Penang do have good cofffee. It was a recent gathering with my friend Kevin that he introduce me die die must vist Stairs coffee which is his all time favourite now in Penang as KL visitor. Just realise that they do have alot of outlets in Penang and the first one I visited was Stairs 46Nordin at Nordin Street Penang. best cafe in penanghidden cafe in penang

Love the ambiance as it is not the usual cafe vibe that you got. It is kinda like a bit of bar & cafe combine. I believe they declare that they have the longest bar cafe table in Penang. 

As I scroll on the  menu, Kevin said no need scrool. Order his all time favourite “Dirty Latte” which he misses alot. O

Then for the first time I saw this Omakase Coffee. Usually you heard in dining and here they got it for RM 35 only. GIve it a try lo. Since cheap. Was explain carefully by the barista that you would not know which bean he is using, but with them analysing the drinker, they will then pick the beans which think suits your mood of the day

Follow by a drink that will be transform into 3 different varity in the same cup. That excites me.

Penang dining scene indeed have turn up a notch. Not only well know for it street food, however I find that casual dining in Penang have also increase in its quality and more outlets opening too. One of the good feedback I heard is this fusion casual dining Island Problem in Lebuh Campbell is certainly worth to try. Island problem have quite a unique tweak with combination of Thai and Japanese. Turns out to be good!

To come here, best advise to make reservation as the place is super small. Open concept kitchen that you get to sit at the bar while watching the chef cook. Set back is what every they are cooking you will be very curious and keen to order. island problem penang

Look at the crowd, full house and this is weekday lunch!island problem menucasual dining in penangFor such dining, we start early with Australian white wine to go along with the food we order. wagyu beef donSteak & Butter Rice @ RM 49 : Australian tenderloin steak, range yolk, homemade butter rice.

classic japanese tamago

FInd that its Japanee Tamago is a huge twist. Turn to a special mix to make the surface silky smooth like near eating a tofu! burnt cheese cake penang

We were contemplating to order the Burnt Cheese cake or not yet after see the serving next to us, we make an order. Super soft in the middle, nearly melt inyour mouth, not too sweet, slight burnt and cheese taste is just nice. Not overpowering. Could be one of the best burnt cheese cake in Penang. Set back is expensive. If remember correctly is RM 19 for a small piece.

Fine dining in Penang sure gearing up its quality and I am happy that Island Problem is certainly one of my recommended restaurant dining in Penang. Quality and price I find it affordable. Dining experience some of you might not like it, but I certainly love this kind of ambiance.

Madmen in Tropicana Avenue  had been one of our regular hang out spot with me and my friends, even before MCO. Right till recently, they have revamp the place with Liveband and new Menu.

live band in pjMain highlight for the night is this famous Modern Jazz live band in PJ. I didnt know that they do have such a strong follower that one of my friend is also one of their fan. The combination of saxophone : Eddy, Keyboardist : Lee Peng and singer Celist voice is pretty amazing. No wonder they have such strong follower. They are here for the whole month of mid May to June 2022 on every Thursday. Do remember to book a spot!

Previously I was recommended to try Omega Pork Noodle as one of a famous pork noodle shop in Kota Damansara, PJ. As one of my favourite is actually Ten Noodle which is just 2 rows away which is also selling Pork Noodle. 

So it is kinda Ten Noodle vs Omega Pork Noodle and which is your favourite?omega pork noodle (3)Omega Pork Noodle  operate slightly different as the ambiance for here is certaily more comfortable with air condition. There is a purchase of 1 cup then you get to refill your favourite drinks or try different drinks at your liking at only RM 3.90
omega pork noodle menu

Price here is slightly more than Ten Noodle and with the difference, the portion here is also slightly bigger.

omega pork noodle side dish

There are some side dishes for you to choose .

omega pork noodle kota damansara

Here is my Omega Pork Noodle Soup and of course I add an egg. I add in all the spare parts and it is actually huge. Generous with ingredients and perhaps if you are really hungry, get one portion yourself. They have 2 sizes and mine is the regular. I cannot imagine the 1 in BIG! Starting from RM 9

Soup base is not as thick to my liking, however decent enough. I still like Ten Noodle over them. (individual preference) – however Ten noodle quality do drop compare to before MCO. To make it extra umph, I add on pork lard. Just too big and abit soggy. Can skip that next round.
best pork noodle in pjwhite curry meewhat caught my attention more is their Nanyang White curry Mee  starting  from  RM10.90. I order with vits noodle another additional RM 1 for this which I think can just sick to bee hoon and mee for my usual classic. I do like the soup base as it is slightly different from Penang white curry mee but the chili paste do make it a lot difference.

taste wise pretty spot on with its chili paste and just that on the saltier end side. 
penang white curry mee in pj

I would come here for their curry mee instead of pork noodle. 😀
