Boiled Pork & Shrimp Dumplings

by Chef Hans Susser @ Hospitality21

Boiled dumplings are one of the more common daily food items in Chinese cuisine. Yet, while most dumplings served in restaurants are steamed, the more common cooking method in private homes is boiling them in salted water. These dumplings are very easy to make and take no time at all, especially if you use ready-made [...]

Eating in the Food Capital of Malaysia – George Town, Penang

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

Leaving Southern Thailand behind, the journey to Malaysia involved an overnight ferry, four different mini-vans, and the most unorganized customs/border service I experienced in Southeast Asia. And that’s saying a lot considering the tourist swindling operations at the Laos border. In the customs office, the border officials requested our immunizations card, something the United States does not provide. After denying their request, we let them take our temperatures and they asked us if we had the Zika virus – of course we all replied that we did not. After sitting in the office for 45 minutes while they copied our information by hand

Here Are Our 5 Favorite Restaurants Around Lake Geneva

by Deborah Grossman @ Hospitality21

Switzerland may engender visions of grand ski resorts. Sure, you can ski and toboggan near Lake Geneva. But the Lake Geneva region also offers delicious dining opportunities along the lake towns of Lausanne and the Montreux Riviera. During a summer visit to Lausanne, I discovered the fourth largest Swiss city is rich with eclectic neighborhoods and talented chefs. Montreux buzzed with preparations for the famous jazz festival. Meanwhile the picturesque towns ringing the lake from Lausanne to Montreux such as Vevey own up to their name as the Montreux Riviera with their relaxed lifestyle. I also boarded a train for a brief, scenic ride to Rougemont in the Alps where I experienced modern lodging and exceptional gastronomy.

Do New Point-of-Sale Technologies Make Workers Hate Me?

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

For the past several years, the use of new point-of-sales (POS) technologies, like Square, that use a touchscreen have become popular among businesses. These systems are sleek, easy to use, and have decreased the length of in-store credit card transactions. For me, they have also done one more thing – raise my self-consciousness about not tipping. One reason shop owners love these systems, I assume, is that they increase tips. After the cashier swipes your card, they flip the screen around to face you and you see a screen that looks like this: Before these systems, a customer would have

February 2017 Credit Card Bonuses to Earn Free Travel

by noreply@blogger.com (Liz) @ The Gross Travel Chronicles

Hi Folks!

I'm taking a break from my (long overdue) trip reports to provide some links to great credit card sign up bonuses.

100% honesty: If you use these links, the Grosses will be getting some sort of points bonus in return for your signup. What that means, however, is that we hold each of these cards (we even pay the annual fee on one), and have gotten good value out of it. In 2016 we took 2 business class flights and 4 economy flights (all international) and stayed used over three weeks of free hotel nights, in part because of these cards. If you're looking to pick some up, peruse these links.

Fantastic Sign Up Bonuses


Chase Sapphire Preferred (Visa)
This is a card you should get sooner rather than later if you're looking to earn points and miles. The signup bonus is 50,000 Chase Ultimate Reward points after spending $4,000 in three months. Add an authorized user, get an extra 5,000 points. You'll also earn two points per dollar on travel and dining. If you eat out and or travel a lot, you'll probably have at least 60,000 points when your sign up bonus hits. I like to transfer my Ultimate Reward points to United Mileage Plus (here's their frequent flyer award chart) or Hyatt, where I can often get great hotel rooms for 8,000-12,000 points per night. You can also use these points to book travel through the Ultimate Rewards portal. Aaron and I love this card, and will continue to pay the annual fee each year. For new applicants, the fee is waived the first year, so you could always choose to cancel the card or downgrade to a no annual fee Chase card after the first year if you don't want to pay the annual fee.

You will only be approved for this card if you have opened less than 5 new credit card accounts in the last 24 months. To check this, pull your credit report (you can do it for free on Credit Karma) and count the number of new credit card accounts over the last 24 months. Even if a card is closed, or if it's an authorized use of someone else's card, it will count in Chase's 5/24 formula. Less than 5 accounts? Great! Go for this card right now and you'll have enough points to transfer to United for a round-trip flight to Europe from the US!

If you're still under 5/24, it would be smart to also get the United Mileage Plus Explorer card while it has a 50,000 mile bonus.  You can combine that bonus with the Chase Sapphire Preferred bonus to have even more miles! I don't hold this card anymore, so I don't have a referral link. Google it and you'll find it. Another good bonus (and card benefits) is available for the Chase Sapphire Reserve (the bonus is double if you apply at a Chase Bank branch before March 12), but make sure you understand the annual fee, which is not waived the first year.

Starwood Preferred Guest (American Express)
For a limited time, there is an increased sign-up bonus on this card: 25,000 SPG points after you spend $3,000 in three months, and another 10,000 SPG points when you spend an additional $2,000 within the first six months. SPG points are great because they're incredibly versatile. Of course, you can use them to book SPG hotels (e.g., Westin, Sheraton) at just a few thousand points per night. Or, you can transfer them to Marriott at a rate or 1:3, making this 35,000 point signup bonus worth 105,000 Marriott points. Or, you can transfer the points to Delta, American, or many other airlines, and get an extra 5,000 points for every 20,000 points transferred. So, the 40,000+ points you'll have after meeting the minimum spend will be worth 50,000 airline miles. (Note: SPG points do not transfer to United.) The annual fee on this card is waived the first year.

I love SPG points because they're so flexible. I'd definitely recommend signing up for the personal card while the bonus is high. If you also happen to have a business (even as a sole proprietor with small side income), you can also sign up for the SPG business card from Amex, which has a slightly higher minimum spend to receive the same bonus.

Low Minimum Spend Requirements


Hilton Honors Card (American Express)
If you're not able to spend $3,000-$4,000 in three months but want to dip your toes into points/miles, consider this card. The minimum spend is $1,000 within three months, and the signup bonus is 75,000 Hilton points. There is no annual fee on this card, ever. 75,000 points should get you a couple nights at a full-service Hilton in mid-size cities (I paid 30,000-40,000 per night in Germany) or up to seven nights at limited service properties in small towns off the interstate, say....on a road trip. In April, Hilton is changing their award program so that family members can share accounts...making this a great card for both you and your significant other (or parents!) to get, so you can pool your points. Here's my link to sign up. We get bonus points if you use it before February 27.

Amex Everyday (American Express)
This is another low minimum spend, no annual fee card. Spend $1,000 in three months and get 15,000 Amex Membership Reward Points. This is another good flexible point currency - it can transfer to Delta, Aeroplan, Hilton, or many other travel partners. You can also redeem points for Amazon gift cards or for AirBNB. If you happen to have an American Express card that earns Membership Reward points that you're looking to cancel (say, because you don't get enough value to pay the annual fee), you can add this card to your wallet and keep your Membership Reward Points balance active. Here's my link to sign up.


Questions?


If you have questions about these cards, let me know. The least I can do is be helpful if you're nice enough to use my links!

Marco Polo Tawainese Pizza

by James Sloate @ Five Star to Dive Bar

Pizza…..did you say Pizza? I don’t know many people whose head isnt on a swivel when you hear those magical words. Just saying the word brings up dreamy utopian thoughts of Oompa Loompa’s dancing and singing, “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, its Amore!” It’s simply “SALIVATION SALVATION!” There are so many fucking different types of Pizza in the world, it truly is like our universe, or my x wives mouth, never ending. The debate on what style of pizza is best is also endlessly debatable. However, a fact most people dont realize is Pizza didn’t originate in Italy. Ok Sloate, well where in the fuck did it?

Malay Cuisine: Food in Penang and Kuala Lumpur

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

I know for a fact that I had never tasted nor wondered what Malay food was like until I showed up in Malaysia. After a few weeks and dozens of meals in the country, I’m still not 100% sure what Malay food really is. Why? The food in Penang, Kuala Lumpur, and throughout the country, as well as the population, is a mix of Malay, Chinese, and Indian. Between the Chinese noodle soups and Indian curry dishes, both of which are local styles, it’s pretty difficult to distinguish what is solely Malay. Even though I couldn’t pick it out of

After taking a long bus ride into the area, the modern light-rail system took us the final distance to the Petaling Hotel near Petaling Street. Only a few hundred feet from the entrance to the Petaling Street market, I could see the crowded areas packed with street food and cheap merchandise from in front of the hotel.

Laying Low in Koh Tao

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

To be blunt, our trip to Koh Tao was nothing like the scuba-filled tropical adventure we had been building up to for months. Rather than getting cheap scuba training in one of the diving capitals of the world, Stu and I sat in our hotel room and watched Netflix for two days – he with a brutal cold and I with the stomach acid of an overweight, chain-smoking, grapefruit juice chugger paired with the remnants of my bronchitis. Neither of us were physically fit to dive nor did we have the mental drive. To top it off, we realized our visas expired in a couple days
