Recently, I went for a short trip to the neighbour country, Johor, Malaysia, with my group of fun buddies to hang out.
We started our journey of crossing the border, and headed towards the City Square, well-known shopping centre, you can’t miss it if you’re coming in from Singapore.
We purchased tickets to watch Pacific Rim, by far the best robot movie I’ve ever watched truly , and we went to break fast at a nearby restaurant, Singgah Selalu.
Comparing the cost of the movie tickets prices here in Singapore and In Malaysia, I can say that it does make a difference.
The price of the ticket we went to watch over at City Square was about RM$8 which is about S$4, considering that a really good deal because I remember having to pay about S$7.50 here in my area.
We did stop by an arcade before the start of our movie, so like curious boys we went and release the inner kid in us.
After that whole scene, and the watching the movie, it was already past our break fast time. Didn’t expect the movie to end late, but that didn’t stop us from going our intended direction.
We decided to take a cab to Singgah Slalu Restaurant which took about 10 mins from where we were, and the cab charge was a decent RM$8-12(one way) , depending on how the driver chooses to go, it was still okay because we shared it amongst ourselves.
I had the chance to savour the Singgah Selalu Fried Rice, a Teh O’ Limau and Roti John that adds up to only about $RM 15, which if I convert to SGD currency roughly about S$7.That’s actually a pretty good food deal. We were all so full by the time we finish. It was my first time trying out the Black Pepper deer meat and it tasted really good.
We spent about RM$90 altogether which we divide together equally, because we’re happy with sharing our food.
More photos from the day.
If there was something that I can say about the day it would be
- It was worth the money ( I had only $30 with me and spent $20 in altogether for movies, food and more food to bring back home with )
- It was good fun. (It feels great to just chill back, relax and enjoy a good dinner with friends)
In overall, I recommend you to try this doing this with your own group of friends.
What do you think of this? Have you done something similar?
I haven’t been abroad but my best friend and I have gone to neighboring provinces just to raise chaos there.
Singgah selalu in JB has a very nice spot if you like to be away from the malls and have the authentic malay kampung feeling in a restaurant. So syiok!!
