Why I went to Malaysia For a Good Hangout Session ?

Visiting Johor Malaysia For Movies and Food

Visiting Johor Malaysia For Movies and Food

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.

If there was something that I can say about the day it would be

  1. 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 )
  2. 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?

Jem Shopping Mall Closed During Opening Day

JEM Shopping Mall

JEM Shopping Mall

On the 11th June, I planned a trip with my mum to visit the new shopping mall at Jurong East, named JEM after looking through their website, saying they would open on the 11th June. Having to pass my new license, my mum and I drove all the way to JEM, but upon reaching somewhere around the back of the mall, the carpark operator said that the carpark was not operating yet.

Thinking ok well maybe we can park somewhere else and walked over, we decided to go to the nearest shopping mall around the area, JCube to park the car which happen to take a quite a while to find a parking space due to the lunchtime period.

Jem Shopping Centre's Notice on opening day 11th June

Jem Shopping Centre

Upon reaching the shopping centre, ready to take my camera out to take more shots, i happen to see notice signs stating that JEM was still closed.There were representatives from JEM who say that the mall is still closed at the point of time, and I was clueless to why and what was going on not really ready to accept the fact that was just being told. Having to see the look on my mum’s face, after taking her time to drive all the way down to my place, and waiting for so long to park, and then now this. I I was quite surprised, but i was more concerned about her reaction but she managed to be calm and carry on.

i heard the representatives talking to another family who was there to also visit the mall. Apparently, they were quite disappointed, saying that they had made plans to come all the way down, so i guess i wasn’t the only one.

Apparently it was announced or posted on the website a day before the day it was opened, that it’s not going to be opening, so that means I didn’t really get the message across.

As for now, what I know is they would be announcing a new date to open up the store. The feeling of looking forward to it have went down a little, but i hope they would open up soon so I can go to the Uniqlo Store.
