Friday Quick Bites - Mille Danish from Free Mori

Free Mori, the latest name to hit the local bakery scene originated from Taiwan and has actually been around for 3 decades.  I patronise the outlet in SS2; the others are in Publika, Damansara Uptown, Shah Alam (google and check whether there's one near you as they are opening new outlets around the Klang Valley).  It's one of my latest hang out as they also serve coffee, tea and a special blend of fruit juices.  I enjoy sitting in the store, surrounded by all the lovely pastries, cookies and cakes.  Free Mori also market their cookies in lovely tin boxes which are great as gifts or even for your very own tin collection.  They also have a range of other things like coasters, cups etc. etc. for sale.

Travel News : Renew Malaysian Passport Online

Being a partial travel blog, I felt that I should blog on my most recent experience when I renewed my Malaysian Passport online.  Some bloggers have already written on this as this isn't something new.  It's just that it's still quite unknown and an online feature that is rarely utilized.  I am so impressed with the whole process till I wanna write about it myself and would like to encourage more people to renew their passports online.  This is based on my experience with the online system and the steps I went through. The steps might be different according to each applicant (especially if certain terms and conditions are not met).

1) Get a passport photo taken at the studio or by a friend, you would need a softcopy of your photo.  If you have a hardcopy, then you will have to scan it to convert it to a .jpeg file for uploading.  Click HERE to make sure you meet the photo requirements and the terms & conditions from Immigration Department Of Malaysia (Jabatan Imigresen Malaysia).  Here's a screenshot of it...

Please read the Terms & Conditions thoroughly as they also state that not only will your application be rejected but payment made might not be returned if not adhered to! If all is okay, scroll to the end of it, and click on "Agree".   It will take you to the next step

2) Choose your Application Category and then enter your existing (expiring or expired) passport number and Identity Card number and then click "Search" on the right.

Note : If your passport expiry date is not due for one year and more, you will not be able to proceed further.
