A Visit To Marina Hotel Forest City, Johor

HERE WE COME...  Using Waze, we drove a half hour journey to Forest City, a popular resort which was the talk of the town, but unfortunately due to the pandemic, everything seems to be at a standstill.  They are having a promo in Marina Forest City Hotel, for only RM199 for a spacious room, a king size bed, a long sofa and a huge bathroom, this rate also includes 3 meals!  Breakfast, high tea and either lunch or dinner, our own choice.  Oh, this is not a sponsored post... I am just relating what I know and they have this promo banner displayed at the lifts!

We went in to have a look at the room... yes, we like it very much!  However we did not stay there, maybe the next time when we go Johor again... though the promo rate will not be around once the economy picks up.  Sad to see that everything is affected, hope this pandemic will be over soon!  Really yearn for our lives to be back to normal like before... 
There are 3 hotels just next to each other... 
Our destination is Marina Hotel.... 
At the lobby.... very huge and spacious...
Reception area....
Scenery from the 10th floor of the hotel corridor... 
The condos and the villas... wonder whether they are occupied....
A small jetty below....
Can even see Singapore from where we stood.... 
The spacious bed.... 
Even the bathroom was spacious.... bathtub on one side...
And the shower on the other side... with the toilet which was hidden on the left...
The love birds...
My friend taught me how to do this... hahaha...
Not sure I can still remember...
Scenery from the balcony....
Not bad, right?
On this side... they have these...
Whales? Dolphins or someone mentioned they looked like "cicak?"
oh no.... 
What do these look like to you?
After a short rest, we came down to walk around the vicinity....

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
