Twice Wrongly Charged At Famous Dart, Taman Sutera, Johor

HOW DO I SPEND THE DAYS IN JOHOR?   Very easy... wake up late, take lunch, go marketing, walk around the little nest with a broom, prepare dinner, take dinner and then TV throughout the evening till bedtime.  Of course, I managed to squeeze in some blogging work during the day as well.  That is how I juggle my "chores" while I am here in Johor.  Other than that, no extra activities like gym or walking the dog.  My girl is not here otherwise go gym-ing every day, no joke!

Other than food, I do not know what else to post up during my stay here.  I am very thankful that my dear in-law takes me out daily for my first meal and we normally go for something heavy to fill up our tummies.  On this particular morning, she took me to a place called Famous Dart at the Taman Sutera ....
I ordered this bowl of fish noodles with koay teow.... 
With salted vegetables and fresh fish, the soup was to my liking... 
Priced at RM13,90

My in-law ordered something simpler... 
Noodles with a few slices of abalone strips... RM8.90
And as "sidekicks", we have these fish balls.... RM7.30
Our first meal of the day... 
The portions are quite huge and I am surprised that I could finished them all regardless... 
When the bill came, it was around RM30...
My SIL briefly went through the bill and realized that her bowl of noodles was not charged...
Called the lady over and she thanked us for pointing out her mistake...
When the separate bill came, it was RM13.90 instead of RM8.90...
Oh, another mistake on her part!
She apologised profusely for her second mistake...
I guess she must have lots on her mind on that day....
hhhmmmm....

  1. Huh?? Abalone noodles for RM8.90?? I thought the standard price for it is RM15 (Malaysian) to RM20 (Singaporean)... cheap!!

  2. Oh dear! How to do business when so poor at calculations? Like this place I went to - tomorrow's post but I did not mention it in my blog - RM11.00, RM3 + RM5 + RM1.50 + RM1.50...and I told the girl I had tosai and she added RM2.30 and I said it was tosai telur so she deleted the RM2.30 and added RM3.00 - not that she was so busy, there were a lot of customers or what. Terrible! I could have just paid RM11.00 and left!

  6. I prefer your fish noodle than the abalone noodle. Johor's price is higher than Ipoh's.

    2. Thank you but I am funny as I have no desire to retire. I wish that I could still work and be useful when I am over 70 years old like those in China and Japan. (if I could reach that age**)

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
