The 3 Best Online Dating Sites in Malaysia

Malaysia, like Singapore, has a relatively small but functioning online dating scene and a couple of good sites from which to choose. The best online dating sites in Malaysia have a user-friendly interface and a large enough membership base to make it worthwhile to sign up for a paid membership.


Having traveled to this part of the world, I can tell you that Malaysian women are beautiful. They don’t top Filipinos in terms of beauty, but you will still find some jaw-dropping stunners. Rest assured, when you sign up for one of these dating sites that I mention below, you will get a glimpse of what I am talking about (i.e. Malaysian women look even better in person). For best results, try to get your online dating game going in a city with a decent-sized population like Kuala Lumpur.

 

As I mention in my online dating e-book, should you decide to sign up for the online dating sites I recommend below, be sure to read member profiles carefully as you might come across a lot of fake profiles. Usually, I can spot these profiles pretty easily. A woman who has only one picture posted, is wearing a tight bikini and making an overly suggestive pose are usually clear signals to steer clear. Another clue of a pretender is a woman who has a poorly written profile. As a general rule of thumb, the more boring the profile, the more boring the person.

 

Without further ado, below are my thoughts and reviews on the best online dating sites in Malaysia so that you can get started on searching for a potential significant other in this fine country.


1. AsianDating.com

AsianDating.com doesn’t come up often when people talk about online dating sites in Malaysia, but I really like it. It is run by Cupid Media and has a lot of members in Malaysia. It also has a good following in Thailand and Indonesia.

 


2. DateInAsia.com:  

I know a lot of friends who love this site because it is free, has a lot of members, and they’ve had success with it. I find the quality on DateInAsia pretty poor though, and the number of women looking for “clients” seems high. However, if you prefer a free dating site, this is an ideal place for you. The benefit of this site is that it has a lot of members, and, if you work hard enough, you are virtually guaranteed to come away with some contacts. However, at the end of the day, you get what you pay for. You will have to spend a lot of time weeding through low quality profiles.


3. Badoo.com:  


A massive worldwide online dating site launched in 2006, Badoo is a third option if you are looking to date someone in Malaysia. You will have to weed through a lot of frogs on this site though before you find your prince or princess. Because of my issues with the quality of profiles on Badoo, I would not focus on it as a starting point for my dating search.

Badoo works on the “freemium” model, which means that it is free to sign up, but you have to pay for upgraded features. The site operates in over 180 countries.

 

 


Online Dating: The top 11 Best Sites

Do you find the idea of online dating daunting? We've picked out the 11 best dating sites for you to try – and there really is something for everyone. 


No longer embarassing or, God forbid, cringe, half of all single people now use online dating sites to find love (or at least an easy hook-up)

 

There are literally hundreds of dating sites out there. So, to make it a little less overwhelming, we've trawled the Internet for you and sought the online dating websites


With no further ado, here are our 11 best online dating sites: 

 

1. match.com


How does it work? match is the most widely-used online dating site in the world and has nearly 1.8 million subscribers. It works in the most traditional way: Simply create a profile, check out your potential matches, send them a few messages and then arrange to meet for a date. There are also various off-shoots of match.com with microsites for gay and lesbian dating, Asian dating, Christian dating and Polish dating. The love-gods at match also arrange singles events and provide online dating advice.


How much does it cost? £12.99 per month for a 6-month membership.

 
 

2.eHarmony


How does it work? If you are serious about looking for that special thing called love, then this is the site for you. eHarmony take this online dating lark very seriously. They've even patented The eHarmony Compatibility Matching System. That's right. They've taken 35 years of research to come up with a Relationship Questionnaire and pride themselves on matching users with people who are actually compatible with them.


How much does it cost? £9.95 per month. 

 

3. Lovestruck


How does it work? Lovestruck helps you target potential partners according to location and it covers many of the major cities across the world. It's aimed at time-starved professionals, who due to busy work and social lives simply don't have the time to date. Lovestruck helps put you in touch with people who are near you – be it where you work or live – to save you precious minutes or hours travelling to and from a date. The site also hosts regular events which are a fun, relaxed way to meet people.


How much does it cost? A minimum of £16 per month.  

 

4. DatingDirect.com


How does it work? There are no gimmicks or USPs with DatingDirect. In fact, it's fairly similar to our old friends Match, mentioned above. You can start looking at potential dates for free, then when you like the look of someone and fancy striking up a conversation, you need to subscribe. It also has a handy instant messenger service which makes chatting to your matches easy and breezy.


How much does it cost? £12.99 per month for a 6 month membership. 

 

5. PARSHIP.co.uk


How does it work? This is sold as a serious online dating site for 'discerning singles.' A bit like eHarmony, PARSHIP uses a patented test, this time called The PARSHIP principle®, which analyzes 32 personality traits and is based on an algorithm of 136 rules. It sounds complicated, but that's not for you to worry about. Just sign up, do the test and get chatting to all those love-compatible people out there.


How much does it cost? Minimum of £14.90 per month.   

 

6. Muddymatches


How does it work? Set up by two friends, Emma and Lucy, in 2006, Muddy Matches is aimed at 'muddies', who by the girls' definition is 'any person who loves the countryside and is not afraid of a bit of mud'. The criteria is pretty relaxed and the site uses a Muddy-Townie ratio to match potential dates accordingly. So, someone who lives and breathes country air and despises all things concrete jungle would have a ratio of 100:0, but someone who lives in the city but loves to don their Hunters at the weekend might be a 30:70.


How much does it cost? £18 for one month, £36 for three months, £54 for six months and £72 for 12 months.   

 

7. PlentyofFish


How does it work? Plenty of Fish works by asking users to take a special POF Relationship Chemistry Predictor test, which measures self-confidence, family-orientation, self-control, social dependency and easygoingness. You're then matched to those most compatible to you.


How much does it cost? It's free! 

 

8. Mysinglefriend.com


How does it work? Mysinglefriend.com is the brainchild of TV presenter Sarah Beeny and it works by each member on the site being put forward and described by a friend. The site aims to get rid of the 'cringe factor' associated with having to big yourself up through your online profile and makes it more of a fun community, where like-minded people can chat, meet and potentially fall in lurve.


How much does it cost? £13 per month. 



9. BeautifulPeople.com


How does it work? This online dating site does exactly what it says on the tin and only people deemed beautiful enough will be allowed to join. To become a member, applicants are required to be voted in by existing members of the opposite sex. Members rate new applicants over a 48-hour period based on whether or not they find the applicant ‘beautiful’. It sounds harsh, but the site claims that by admitting people based on their looks they're removing the first hurdle of dating, saying that because everyone on the site is a fitty, members can concentrate on getting to know people's character and personalities. Beautiful People also promises access to exclusive parties and top guest lists around the globe. Now for that brutal 48-hour wait...


How much does cost? If you buy a 6-month membership, you'll get a reduced price of £7.50 per month. 

 

10. Tastebuds


How does it work? A similar taste in music can be a great indicator as to whether you're compatible with someone, so the fine folks behind Tastebuds have struck gold with their music-based online datingsite. Getting started is dead simple: pick three artists or bands that you're interested in, the gender you're looking to date and press 'go'. It's a fun and relaxed site, which can introduce you to new music, concert buddies and potentially even your own real-life Caleb Followill.


How much does it cost? It's free for exisiting members, but £8 per month for new members.

 

11. Doingsomething


How does it work? Let's face it, meeting up with a complete stranger for a first date can be awkward and hideously cringeworthy. But it's less so when the date itself is a total riot. This is where Doingsomething.co.uk comes in. The site is all about the actual dating experience and let's you pick a match based on the date idea they've suggested. And the more fun and unique the date the better. So, rather than nervously meeting someone for a luke warm coffee in a crowded chain, you could be trying out your culinary skills at a sushi-making masterclass or bonding over super-strong cocktails at a hipster speakeasy. It's basically about finding someone who wants to do the same things as you at the end of the day, isn't it?


How much is it? £10 per month.

Seven Tips For A Long And Healthy Life.

As good as modern medical technology is, it can never save you from the problems caused by a life style that is unhealthy. Instead of getting a modern medical fix for every problem, it is far better to live in such a way that you will hardly ever fall ill.


An ounce of prevention is certainly better than a pound of cure. Here are seven tips on how to live a long and healthy life. In addition, the same life style that helps you to avoid illness also helps you to lose weight.

 To see the original article go to the link at the end of the article.  

1. Get Enough Exercise

In the past people had to use their physical bodies in the course of their normal work. But today someone may get up, go to work in a car, then sit down, get up to go home in the car and when arriving at home, sit down again for the rest of the day. In such a life there is no physical labor. This physical inactivity is one of the main reasons for a host of diseases. Sport, running. walking and other things must be added to our life if our normal work does not require us to exert ourselves physically.

2. Go to sleep when you feel sleepy

This may sound simple, but many people stay up late even when their body is telling them that it is time to sleep. Yoga and Ayurvedic doctors also say that it is better to sleep in the night and be active during the day. However, people such as students will take coffee and stimulants to study late into the night. Others develop the habit of remaining active at night and sleeping during the day. While we can do this, it eventually takes a toll on health. Alternative health doctors say that this kind of unnatural living is one of the contributing factors in the causation of cancer and other diseases

3. Eat when you feel hungry

This is also a simple idea, but once again we often go against the messages of the body. If you eat out of habit or due to social pressure at certain time of the day, even when you have no real appetite, then you will not digest your food properly. Acidity and indigestion begin, and this contributes to the likelihood of other more complex diseases taking root. Having an appetite is actually a sign of good health, but if you have no appetite you should wait a bit and then eat. (If you have no appetite even after awaiting a reasonable amount of time, then you should consult a doctor because something is wrong.)

4. Fast on a Regular, Systematic Basis

If you would ask any person to work 365 days per year without any rest, they would complain and say that they must have some rest or else they will break down. But we have never bothered to ask or to think about our digestive organs which we compel to work day after day without a rest. They cannot protest the way a person would to his boss, but they do give us signals that they cannot work non-stop. When we ignore those signals and still compel them to work, those organs break down. That is why periodic fasting is necessary. Refrain from eating for one complete day. This gives a rest to your digestive organs and also helps in the elimination of wastes from your body. Regular fasting allows a person to gain extra time for intellectual or spiritual pursuits. Fasting is not for hermits in a cave, but is a sensible practice that anyone can practice.

5. Wash with cool water before going to bed

As mentioned above, proper sleep is essential for the maintenance of health. If you wash your important motor and sensory organs (hands, arms, eyes, legs, mouth, genitals) before sleep using cool water, this will relax you and prepare you for deep sleep.

6. Perform meditation on a regular basis

Your body is linked to your mind. Many of the diseases of this era are psychosomatic. Stress and anxiety take their toll on our physical health. Meditation is a mental exercise which, among other things, allows you to detach yourself from the worries of life. Learn a simple technique and do it regularly.

7. Get up early every day


Once again the old proverb, “Early to bed, early to rise makes a person healthy, wealthy and wise.” I don’t know if it will make you wealthy, but it will certainly make you healthy. Your body needs just enough sleep, not too much and not too little.


Follow these tips and you can’t go wrong.

Also known as Shri Guru Granth Sahib, it is a voluminous text of 1430 Angs, compiled and composed during the period of Sikh gurus, from 1469 to 1708.

 

It is a collection of hymns (Shabad) or Baani describing the qualities of God and why one should meditate on God's name. 

 

Guru Gobind Singh (1666–1708), the tenth guru, after adding Guru Tegh Bahadur's bani to the Adi Granth affirmed the sacred text as his successor, elevating it to Guru Granth Sahib.


The text remains the holy scripture of the Sikhs, regarded as the teachings of the Ten Gurus. The role of Guru Granth Sahib, as a source or guide of prayer, is pivotal in Sikh worship. 

The Adi Granth, the first rendition, was first compiled by the fifth Sikh guru, Guru Arjan (1563–1606), from hymns of the first five Sikh gurus and 15 other great saints, or bhagats, including those of the Hindu and Muslim faith. 

Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh guru added all 115 of Guru Tegh Bahadur's hymns to the Adi Granth and this second rendition became known as the Guru Granth Sahib. 

After the tenth Sikh gurus died many copies were prepared for distribution by Baba Deep Singh and Bhai Mani Singh.

It is written in the Gurmukhī script, in various dialects – including Lehndi Punjabi, Braj Bhasha, Khariboli, Sanskrit and Persian – often coalesced under the generic title of Sant Bhasha.

Looking for Siddhartha Gautama Quotes?? Want to know more about Buddha and Buddhism? Then this is the App for you!

 

Siddhartha Gautama (Pali: Siddhattha Gotama) was a spiritual teacher from the Indian subcontinent, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. In most Buddhist traditions, he is regarded as the Supreme Buddha (P. sammāsambuddha, S. samyaksaṃbuddha) of our age, "Buddha" meaning "awakened one" or "the enlightened one." 


The time of his birth and death are uncertain: most early 20th-century historians dated his lifetime as c. 563 BCE to 483 BCE,[2] but more recent opinion dates his death to between 486 and 483 BCE or, according to some, between 411 and 400 BCE.

Based on some archeological findings and inscriptions, Buddha was born in Lumbini, modern Nepal which is a UNESCO world heritage site. Other archeological findings postulate that Buddha was born at Kapilavastu at Piprahwa, Uttar Pradesh, modern India or Kapileswara, Orissa, modern India. He later taught throughout regions of eastern India such as Magadha and Kośala.

Gautama, also known as Śākyamuni ("Sage of the Śākyas"), is the primary figure in Buddhism, and accounts of his life, discourses, and monastic rules are believed by Buddhists to have been summarized after his death and memorized by his followers. Various collections of teachings attributed to him were passed down by oral tradition, and first committed to writing about 400 years later.

In Hinduism, he is regarded as one of the ten avatars of God Vishnu. He is also regarded as a god or prophet in other world religions or denominations like the Ahmadiyya Islamic religious movement and the Bahá'í Faith.

This app contains all of Siddhartha Gautama's quotes, and more will be added when found.
