The Puteri Pacific Johor Bahru is conveniently located on heritage row of Jalan Trus, just a few minutes away from City Square Johor Bahru as well as the Jalan Tan Hiok Nee Culture street where you can do your cafe hopping. The Johor Bahru Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine Complex (CIQ) at the causeway to Singapore are also within walking distance.

I booked a 2D1N staycation at their dulex room on the Executive floor with breakfast at Agoda.com for $122.44.   Continue Reading

Cafehopping in Johor Bahru

After the short food trail I had previously at Taman Sentosa, I had been looking forward to my next food adventure in Johor Bahru.

Cafes had been sprouting out almost everywhere in Johor over these past few years. Singaporean had also starting to move into Johor to do their cafe hopping.

Thanks to Jia Hui from FaithJoyHope and Hazel from HazelDiary for planning the cafe hopping session.

Most of the cafes are located at.

First Stop : The Replacement Lodge & Kitchen

The Replacement Lodge & Kitchen had recently open for business in May 2015. This is the second establishment from the team of Faculty of Caffeine! The founder created the cafe with  the     ”Bed and Breakfast” concept for people to enjoy good food and lodge while they are in Johor.

You can easily spot The Replacement Lodge & Kitchen from its white washed walls.

Most of the time when me and boyfriend travel to Johor Bahru, we will usually shop and dine in City Square.

We seldom venture out to other parts of Johor Bahru as we are not really familiar with Johor Bahru.

Thanks to boyfriend’s friend who planned and brought us for the short food trail at Taman Sentosa,Johor Bahru.

First Stop : Shoon Huat Bak Kut Teh

2D1N Valentine’s Day Getaway in Johor City Square

People may envy me that I am working in my boyfriend’s company which I may be able to have my own freedom of time.However, behind the scenes we usually stay in office to work till super late and burn our weekends off.

Most of our time spent together is either working in office or working at home.

This year is our third Valentine’s Day together. I started planning for our Valentine’s Day almost a week in advance.

“Valentine’s  Day Staycation, Valentine’s Day Dinner, Valentine’s Day Oversea Getaway” etc etc. I thought of every single activities that a couple would do together for Valentine’s Day.

In the end, we decided on a 2D1N Getaway in Johor, Malaysia. Away from the crowded Singapore where it so hard to get a place to dine without reervation and where everything were marked up for this day.Other then celebrating Valentine’s Day, this was also a getaway trip for us to rest.

It’s Valentine’s Day, how can I not prepare present for my beloved boyfriend.

Before heading to Johor, I made one of his favorite snack, Muah Chee. Did not expect that the dough came up to be in heart shaped. Perfect for the Valentine Day.
