FlexiRoam, a convenient to call from foreign lands

I have to admit, I am not sure whether I will need this service or not. However, having an option to call from foreign countries is great. I went to Kazakhstan last June and I only had the option to tweet (through Twitter) and BBM my wife for nearly 10 days as I didn't want to incur cost if I made any calls.

FlexiRoam seems to be the solution for that. It is a phone call only solution but its ease will make sure you are in touch with your friends and family. How does it works? While you are overseas, calls made to your Malaysian mobile number will be forwarded by FlexiRoam to your foreign mobile SIM card which you can purchase locally at your destination country. This means Malaysian users do not need to inform their contacts of any new international mobile numbers. By the way, it is GSM powered and not wifi or 3G powered.

So, this holiday season, FlexiRoam is giving away some credits for free. I have Ten (10) RM50 credit to be given away.

As I know not many visitors land on my blog nowadays (who have time to read blogs anymore?), let me make this easy. First come, first serve.

Just comment and ask for it. Much like Santa, I will credit it to your account after you signed up for FlexiRoam. If you already have an account, just give me your email and phone number which you sign up with. Send it to my email : kruel74[at]gmail[dot]com.

2011 : The year I learned to love rice

Yep, am born and raised in Malaysia where the food is always partnered with rice. There are so many type of rice and the way it is cook that there Malaysia imported from so many countries. So, in a way, it is weird for me to just get acquainted with rice.

I am so not really into rice when my wife and I eat out that she would go to her mom's when she wants to really eat rice (which she always eat with sambal tempoyak, which I still hates). 

So, this year of 2011, I start to eat rice. A lot. Some are rice-based. Some are flour-based. You get the idea.

I want to say it was due to my wife. However, it was the making of a friend who loves to eat by the name of Jahabar. 

He loves to recommend places to eat and most of them consist of rice as its main dish. The beauty of it? All these places are well known to my wife. And we sometimes eat without the presence of others. Just the two of us.

Here are some of these rice places :
