A Short Weekend Trip to JB

Well, this is our first trip to JB with Joey and her family!

It’s really a SHORT trip as we just go there for 2d1n from 2-3 September 2016! I can’t wait for more SHORT trips!

I want to go Genting, however, my school is on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday.. I doubt I could go for any more weekend trip (unless I skip school, oops)

We booked the train ticket and traveled to JB (Johor Bahru) via the train which only took us a traveling time of 5mins (unlike the bus where including traffic jam, could goes up to 1-2 hours..) The best part of the train is that there’s only 1 checkpoint (Singapore & Malaysia) and before you board the train, and when you alight, it’s right at JB’s city square! How convenient it is! (Psst, if you have watch ‘The Train to Busan’, you’ll feel the chill down your spine when you see the train.. Hahha)

That’s how excited they are! We reached around 11plus and the check-in time is only at 3pm. We went for early lunch and then we catch a movie (Kubo and The Two String) at KSL Mall. I realised that shows are screened earlier in Malaysia as compared to Singapore as Kubo and The Two String is only available in cinema over here in mid September. After which, we checked around 3.15pm.. As we didn’t indicate that we prefer the rooms side by side, we were given 2 different rooms on 2 different levels..

We stayed at this new hotel, Holiday Villa Johor Bahru City Centre, which is just across KSL mall.. It’s a new hotel, about 5 months old and it has a really good nice bay window area where my kid just love to hang around at.

As it’s so near to KSL, I bring my kid there to get some snacks to munch while waiting for Joey’s hubby to finish his massage before bringing the kids to the swimming pool..

Ta da! That’s a photo of us, we’re having some cheesecake and egg tart! Hahaha.. About 5plus, we went to the swimming pool as I can’t stand my kid there going “swimming swimming”.. Joey joining us about 15mins later..

We end off the day by going for frog leg porridge then packed chicken-up chicken back to the hotel room! (Hahha, I’m going to get fat soon!) The next day, we just had the breakfast buffet then laze around in the hotel room then off we go (check-out).. We went to have Kim Gary and then off to another movie before rushing off midway to catch the train back home!

Can’t wait for our next trip in December! Aww, I love short trips! Hahhaa.. & I want MORE!


A Short Weekend Trip to Batam

This is my kid’s 3rd time to Batam! Good life, I didn’t travel out of Singapore till I’m in my 20s (let alone Malaysia)..

We went for a short trip from 3-5 June 2016.

It’s always MacDonald breakfast first before the ferry ride. 😀 (See how happy he is in the ferry ride)

We stayed in iHotel Baloi this time round (the same hotel we used to stayed when I joined the Joey and her family’s Batam shopping trip). Just a glimpse of the hotel room.. It’s actually located near to BCS mall and it’s about 60,000 rupiah taxi ride from Nagoya.

My kid had a great time wadding in the pool. Well, he don’t dare to swim yet so.. Yeah.. Hahha..

This time round, we spent most of the time in the hotel and didn’t travel as much, just to BCS mall for lunch and dinner and Nagoya the next day for some shopping of layer cakes and also to eat A&W (it’s strange how Singaporean always go there for A&W). There’s a Time Zone right there at Nagoya too and there are having a promotion where you buy a card for 10,000 rupiah and it comes with 20,000 rupiah credit. *WOW*

We also bought KFC back from Nagoya. Although I find the chicken too tough for my liking, K and my kid actually loves it and K even said that it’s better than the one in Singapore. 😀

Overall we had a great trip and I’m looking forward to another Batam shopping trip with Joey and her family end of the year again (if they are going).
