Buyandship https://www.buyandship.com.my/ is my favourite shipping company currently, mainly cos their shipping charge is weight based, and not volumetric (which other company like comgateway etc is using). MyUS is other which is weight based charging as well, and i remembered it not bad as well, but they have monthly membership charge of around $10 which I am not keen on, as I don’t buy on regular basis.

Currently buyandship.com.my charge is RM22 per pound(lb) using Quantum Solutions for duty unpaid, you can use this if your items cost + buyandship logistic cost < RM500. If it is more than RM500, you should use RM26 per pound(lb) via SkyNet whereby they will handle the taxes, and you don’t need to pay any taxes yourself.

Volumetric charging is very good if you are buying items with large dimension like shoes which comes in boxes

Below and actual example where I bought a few pair of shoes, using volumetric calculation, I would be charged 13lb of shipping fee RM 338, but buyandship weight based charging only cost RM182

Volumetric charging:
Width * length * height=(32*50*18)/5000=5.76kg=12.7lb


Weight based charging:
Total items weight 3kg=6.6lb
Paid 7lb=RM182

How it works:

  1. You buy item from US sites and have it delivered to B&S warehouse in US.
  2. When you get the tracking number from the US shopping site, remember to update the tracking number details into B&S website
  3. Once it reach their warehouse, you will receive an email titled “Shipment Updates” notifying you that they have receive it in their US warehouse
  4. Thereafter, it will take around 7-11 days for the items to reach their HK warehouse, whereby you will receive an email “Shipment ready for consolidation”, at this stage, you can make payment.
  5. After payment, it takes 5-6 days(including weekends) after to receive the item. Prior to receiving it(around 2 days), you will receive email titled “Order ready for delivery”.
  6. On a occasion I paid B&S on Friday 5pm, skynet delivered to my house at 11am Wednesday (when Tuesday was holiday) (~6 days)
  7. On another occasion where I use Quantum Solution(via B&S), paid Sunday 8am, delivered on Thurs 1pm. (~ 5 days)
  8. So overall, it takes about 11 – 17 days from the item reaching B&S US house, to parcel being delivered to your house. You will need to add the shipping time from US site to B&S US warehouse, assuming takes within 10 days, so total from paying in US website to receiving the parcel could be around 21 to 27 days.

Below meal (for 4) cost ~ RM250, wanted to try their yam paste dessert, but too full already

Overall, all their food are tasty, except the tofu bag dumpling(RM4.90 per piece) with fish paste tofu filling which I find is just so so, the filling is just so so, only thing special is the outside “skin” is very crispy

Shin Zushi, Jalil Link in Bukit Jalil

They open on 11:30am. By then, on a Friday when we went to, there are already about 5 groups of people lining up. If you are going in large group, better to reach here 15-30mins before their opening time.
2 of ate till our stomach going to burst(below are all the food we are+2 green tea+1 chawan mushi+1 cucumber temaki) and it cost a reasonable RM131.
They have 4 branches, Puchong, SS2 and Taipan.
Overall, it is definity worth revisiting. Loves they don’t skimp on avacado for the avocado salad and very generous with salad greens underneath(better than sushi mentai which is tiny with little greens). The salmon belly is really thick and nice. Surprisingly, the garlic rice is really tasty. Salmon avo handroll is filled with ample of salmon. I find sushi mentai tempura moraiwase is bigger portion though.
It think it is just me, don’t really like those items with teriyaki sweet sauce, prefer more clean tasting and savoury item.

A. Recommended

1. Alison kopitiam in Sri petaling on a Sunday morning.

Went there few times for the nasi lemak which is quite good, the char kuey tiaw here is not bad (fat bean sprout, but I their siham is fried into the noodle and not the partial-cook type, which could indicate their cockles is not fresh enough on that day), but overall the CKT is still a must try here

sriPetalingBreakfast

sriPetalingBreakfast

Nyonya Nasi lemak store

sriPetalingBreakfast

RM7 for above, add rice, onion ikan bilis, potato, 1egg, enough to satisfy my Nasi lemak craving

sri-petaling-alison

the above is from 2nd visit, also RM7, same items as before but without adding ikan bills sambal.

Below 2 items are from Good Tea restaurant(across the road from Alison coffeeshop), items recommended by a famous YouTuber – Elmo. The pork stomach yee Mee I find is so so, firstly I don’t the soup pack the expected strong peppery punch, it is nothing worth having. Whereas the wat tan hor it is normal tasty,it is big portion and taste not bad, but nothing which I will revisit(unlike the selayang Pan Heong’s

2. Rotiman bakery, one of the better bakery out there which has nice yam bun, Japanese sea salt bun and varieties of sourdough, all their bun are quality stuff. Online has some rave review for their gula melaka coconut shred bun (which I am yet to try), japanese shokupan danish bread loaf, thick-cut wholemeal loaves, cheese tart etc

Rotiman-bakery

B. Not recommended

Below are shop which food is not so good, won’t go again:

1. A Chinese shop (Hong Kong Roaster) which sells roast duck/chicken rice/noodle for less than RM10, this shop is owned by Good Taste restaurant(which has many branches), not sure the difference. Haven’t dine here but the items look not bad. After dining here, the portion of the meat is quite small, the egg is not jammy type as shown on menu, but normal boiled egg, overall nothing outstanding for paying higher price than normal hawker stall
