A Few Hours Overseas

Standard

Today is a Saturday. My mum promised us that we would go to Johor Bahru, Malaysia for lunch and dinner. So I was rather excited. I even brought my portable charger because my phone would definitely be out of battery. I knew the journey would definitely be long, so my phone will last through game playing/blogging/watching the first episode of ‘Sherlock’ because my friend asked me to and that would be the only time I have to do so.

I had tuition first. Just one thing that really attracted my attention is this boy in my class. He was listening to music while doing his work. He was kind of singing it as well, like lip-syncing. I have absolutely no problems with that; I do that sometimes when I am doing my homework. But his was… Loud. I could hear the sort of whispering sounds. That’s annoying. I bet it was rap; he sang like he was trying to kill somebody. I’ll stick with pop.

And after tuition, we waited for the bus. There was a direct bus to there. We literally waited for an hour. No bus. So my mum decided to call off the trip. I was really upset. Also,:

I would like yo make a damn complain about the bus service 160 coming from Malaysia to Jurong East interchange. Five buses of number 160 came at the same time. Please increase the frequency of buses. Thanks.

Ok, so I was really upset. We went to the mall that we went like 3 times already this week to have lunch. After that, we have to go to the same bus stop to take another bus home. But then, bus 160 arrived!

My mum decided we still go ahead to Malaysia, just that, my mum can only do shopping and we have dinner.

Yup, expected, shopping at dinner. For dinner we ate at one of our favourite places: Teck Sing Restaurant

Teck Sing Paper Chicken

This was our favourite. We go Johor Bahru to only eat either Bah Kut Teh or Paper chicken. It was delicious. I recommend the paper chicken and Hot Plate Otah.

We went home shortly after that. Now, I’m doing some work.

Visit to the Gardens

Standard

I had my teeth clean and polished this morning. It was an eye opener for me, I’ve always thought they used electricity to scrap the food in my mouth. It’s water.

After tuition, we went to Gardens by the Bay. We had free tickets, so we had to use them up.

There were two places for visit which require payment( we got them for free): the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. Here’s some pictures:

That’s what is inside the paid areas. After that, we took a 10 minutes walk to Satay by the Bay, a public dining area which sells local street hawker delicacies.

They sell Satay(Obviously)- A barbequed meat skewer, Barbeque Stingray(My favourite food :-D)- barbequed with spicy Sambal, some Turkish food and Japanese food. They are expensive! These are what we’ve bought:

I had a while BBQ Stingray to myself!

Finally done! Now I have to go home and study the soul out of me for tomorrow’s Physics SPA exam! And finish up my homework. Sigh

Leaving Malaysia

Standard

Today is the day I head home, I get to spend the whole morning and half of the afternoon here, before going home.

I have to say, the beds in KSL City Hotel is quite comfortable, I just don’t like that flat pillows. We are going down to the dining area for an international breakfast buffet. I came here before, that time the food was delicious.

Here are some foods I ate there today:

Chicken Rendang with Nasi Lemak

Glutinous Rice and fried noodles

Roti Prata

After that, we went back to our hotel room for a rest. At about 11am, we checked out of our hotel room, and took a cab to City Square Mall, which is connected to the immigration.

My mum went to another shopping trip there while my dad and I waited at McDonald’s.

At 1pm, my mum was done, and we went to look for a place to have our lunch. There was really nothing much, but when we went to the rooftop, we found a restaurant called ‘Tea Garden’. I ordered the herbal chicken

image

Yes, Herbal Chicken and Paper Chicken is the same thing.

It took some time to reach home. Then, my father told me that we had to attend family day…

We only had a half an hour rest before we left home again. I don’t like going because I have to dress like a man going on a date. -_-” I originally had plans to do some work at home.

The venue was a very famous park/garden. When we reached there, the main attraction was the stage. It was a free concert. Most of the time, we just listened to the music by some local talents.

All in all, I do recommend all you guys to try out KSL’s international buffet. It is complementry if you stay with them!

In Johor Bahru,Malaysia

Standard

Well, I am here in Johor Bahru, Malaysia with my family, for a short holiday. Had to wake up at 9am and take a public bus there. Actually, We just came here last week, my mum just decided to come here to try to use means of public transport to get to places.

On the bus here, managed to watch 1.5 episodes of The Walking Dead, Season 1. I actually finished watching all 3 seasons, I just decided to watch again for fun.

When we reached, we took a cab to some place I don’t know where, to eat Bah Kut Teh(unsure of spelling), which in English is called Pork Ribs Soup/Tea. I heard my dad told the cab driver that we wanted to eat at a the shop called ‘Ah Soon’, which sells the food. Ah Soon is very famous in Johor Bahru, tell any Cab driver you want to go to Ah Soon, he will take you there. But then we arrived at another Bah Kut Teh shop. Probably, this cab driver is the only one who doesn’t know.

This shop we went to is somewhere beside ‘Bamboo Paper Chicken’ restaurant, along the road.

After the meal, we took another cab to the hotel we are staying called ‘KSL City’. We took the deluxe room. They had bolsters provided on the beds!!

At around 1pm, we took a cab to a shopping mall called ‘Pelengi’. My dad AMD I went to eat some McDonald’s while my mum went to megastore ‘Metrojaya’ to do some shopping.

It’s 3.30pm, my mum decided to go eat at Bamboo Paper Chicken Restaurant, somewhere in an area called ‘Sentosa’ (In Malaysia, not Singapore). She said that this will be dinner. It’s too early.

Above is their famous Emperor Paper Chicken. Below is the Hotplate Otah, one dish I really recommend.

After the meal, we headed back to the hotel to rest for a while, before going for another shopping trip. I have not mentioned this before: KSL City is actually a shopping mall as well, so that’s where we were shopping at.

We ate some sushi and returned to the hotel. I’ll be staying here for just one night and then hear home tomorrow in the late afternoon.
