Johor Bahru Weekend Escapade
Staying in JB makes me reminisce Batu Pahat where I once lived. We talked about utility bills and their water bill comes up to only RM4/mth and electricity RM17/mth and my skyrocket bill/mth is equivalent to covering 3 years utility bill in JB. The cost of living here in Singapore is really of a different magnitude.Pics were not well taken as I have forgotten to bring my camera and have snapped this pics with my Iphone which was also running out of battery then and I had to stand at one corner to charge the phone.Woke up to the nice feeling that you are in Malaysia which translates to I can take my time to to the things that I want to do, so we woke up late and took a short stroll round the estate and EPee suggested that we go for breakfast at this popular coffee shop nearby. It was certainly crowded with late risers coming for their chows. Here the bread is not your usual kaya toast and boast of variety like sambal spread with eggs and peanut butter (what a combination, taste weird) etc. Liked the soft texture chee cheong fun we had but the nasi lemak chili was not the usual sweet tasting fragrance and taste as good with sambal flavour. Highlight to me the Nestum-c which you cannot find this served in any coffee shop and I was just too happy to order this.Restoran SunshineJalan Beladu 9, PuteriWangsa
Restoran Sunshine at Jalan Beladu 9, Puteri Wangsa certainly has the sun shining brightly as the crowd packs the coffee shop but you dont have to wait long for your seats.
Looking disgruntled while waiting for their food.
RM1.50 Nestum-C is a rare find; Should be name Nestum Dinasour instead. Your "la kopi" in traditional cup. I prefer kopi to brewed coffee, no sugar please!!
The bread looks measly like home made but the sambal gives the oomph.
Wanton Mee brightly coloured char siew attacts more than the noodle.
All Chee Cheong Fun should be this good; It's soft, smooth and disappears in the mouth.
Simple Nasi Lemak
Loved this Wine Ginger Chicken with Black Fungus served in a claypot at a nearby foodcourt
Durian Market at Midas Mart
Pandan, next to Carrefour
I missed ieat "Durian Degustation" session on 18th July, so die die must go for my own durian session. Durian galore again at this durian market where there are loads and baskets of durian of different variety; some still as expensive at RM30/kg but I narrowed to a type called "TECKHA" which is not the usual known code of D13, D24, Red Prawn, Mao San Wang etc. However, this is voted yummy good. The durian is dry yet when you sink your teeth, it is creamy, smooth and bitter and the seeds are small. So heavenly and it's not expensive at RM7/kg.
The durians have "exploded" leaving a crater.
They even hold durian party for durian lovers
