8 Awesome Restaurants to Break your Fast During the Holidays

It’s the festive season, and many Malaysians will be going back to their hometown during the Wesak Day, Harvest Festival, and Hari Raya celebrations.

For a smooth trip back to your hometown this festive season, follow these simple tips:

    • Service your vehicle – Make sure everything’s in tip-top condition (especially things like battery water, transmission oil, engine, tire pressure, water or coolant) at least five days before your journey. Save the phone numbers of your insurance toll service as well as highway helplines for emergency assistance.
    • Install GPS and pack other gadgets – Get your GPS ready in case you lose your way during the journey. Also, it helps to bring a power bank and travel charger.
  • Pack light snacks – For those who are fasting, pack some light snacks in case you can’t make it to the R&R or your destination in time to break your fast. Pack bottled water and food items like dates, apple slices, grapes, carrot sticks, crackers, or sandwiches in a cooler box or resealable bags.

Additionally, we’ve found a few places where you can stop by and break your fast (or have lunch or dinner) during your trip back to your hometown.
