I've been to Johor Bahru many many times when I was living in Singapore back then, but it was sooooo long ago I can't recall anything from then. So this time round, it felt like I was there for the very first time. This is the second trip for Tim and I, traveling to his hometown together shortly after my sem started. :)
We drove from KL around 8pm on a Thursday and it took us around 4 hours to reach JB. The long journey was not as tiring as expected because we talked and talked and talked, and stopped for some awesome KFC along the way. :)
Road trips like these once in awhile is okay but I can't imagine having to do this every weekend, alone. And yes I'm referring to a friend of mine who drives from KL to JB almost every time comes the weekend just to see his girlfriend for 2 short days. It's so tiring especially when you have to drive back again alone on a Sunday. What if you suddenly feel lazy? Lazy or not you'd have to drive back to KL because you have class on Monday. The thought is really sweet, yes and I guess it wouldn't be THAT bad if i get to see the person I love after that 4 hours and to spend a weekend with them. On second thought, I guess the driving would be worth it and I wouldn't mind it, I guess. I'm so indecisive I can't even. And okay this issue is overly random lol.
Went to City Square mall and the first proper meal in JB was Friday's lunch at El Migos, a Mexican restaurant that I do not find in KL. :) Had their Cheese Baked Macaroni with Dory, Chicken Teriyaki Burger and a mixed plate consisting of Bruschetta, Onion Rings and Cheese Baked Potatoes with filling.
The before meal shot. In the background is lemon water and carrot juice. :)

Sweater - Mango // shorts - Padini // flats and bag- Vincci
Wanted to visit Danga Bay because it is said to be one of the attractions of JB on the line (LOL did you watch The Intership?). According to Tim however there isn't anything much to see, so instead we went to see Country Garden.
Country Garden Danga Bay is a developing apartment-style seaside housing area. The place is really pretty and they have an infinity pool! The apartment units are currently on sale and according to the salesman they are selling fast. Messaged my dad and told him about the apartment and the price etc and he replied me, you think your daddy is very rich ahh? Lol.
Posing on the beach. A must.
Sea turtles and I. :) I posted this picture on Instagram and I can't believe people actually think that they are real LOL.
Mr. Sea turtle how I wish you were real but you were too clean and shiny to be real. :(
People even thought the giant blue crabs were real lol.
Lovely place really. :)
House hunting. :P We went to see all the show houses of different apartment layouts. The apartments were small but beautifully decorated. In the future I wouldn't want to have my family home in an apartment though. Not enough space for the children and dogs. I need a backyard and parking spots outside my front door tyvm.
That evening I got to meet Tim's family for the very first time. :) We had dinner together at a beautiful Chinese restaurant and then came to Just Want Coffee for coffee and dessert.
Address: No.3, Jalan Permas Utara, Bandar Permas Jaya, 81750 Johor Bahru, Malaysia.
Had the house special Soy Cheese Cake and their Waffles with Strawberry Ice-cream. :) I don't remember the exact name of the drink, but if I remember correctly it had tiramisu and Brandy in it. Food shots here are below par, apologies. Rate this place 8/10.
Went to their Facebook page and found out that they will be having a Just Want Coffee, The Garden branch soon. :D
A picture of Uncle Auntie, and Teri. :)) They are a fun bunch to be with! It was a lovely evening.
One last pic with Tim to end this post. :) I should be researching for my assignment and reading Law stuff but here I am blogging instead. I need more time in a day! Fml.
With all the love,
