Cheaper Accommodation In Johor

My kids and I are still discussing where we should go for this coming Christmas holidays.  We have only two choices actually, it is either going to Singapore or Penang to celebrate this festive season.  If we go to Penang, my son who is working in Singapore will have to a flight to meet us.  On the other hand,  if we choose to go Singapore, my two kids and I will have to take a drive down to Johor and from there, we will take a bus over to Singapore.  We are still contemplating which is a better choice and more affordable.  The air tickets from Singapore to Penang can be quite pricey during this festive season so most probably we will end up driving to Johor.  
This time round, we might not be staying in Singapore because the hotels are getting more and more expensive!  Last month I spent quite a fortune just paying the hotel rates for three nights and it was not even a festive season yet.  I cannot imagine how much the hotel rates will cost during this coming Christmas!  We have been thinking that it would be a better idea to put up a few nights in Johor instead of staying in Singapore.  All we got to do is to log in to Find Cheap Johor Hotels deals here in this website.  There are so many hotels to choose from, prices ranging from only RM65!  But of course, luxury hotels will be much higher but whatever it is, they will be much more affordable than staying in Singapore!  LOL… 
Well, we will definitely bookmark this website for our coming trip.  I heard that there will  be lots of sales in this Johor Premium Outlets and my kids are also looking forward to visiting Legoland at the same time!


  1. Definitely cheaper...but crossing the Causeway. That used to be such a hassle. Is it better, more smooth-flowing now?

  2. Come to my house! My parents there too!

  3. stp: now better.. easier to go over either by taxi or bus...

    chris: i know.. coming back soon and going again on 23rd!

  4. Oh..i use this site before to find my apartment in penang previously. I'm going to Sg too with my family this christmas and legoland is part of our plan :)

  5. well good thing you're now having plans coz in my case nothing comesup on my mind yet

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
