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....

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

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
