A trip to JB (13th Feb) ~ 正月初六

Usually during the Chinese New Year period, i will make a trip to Johor Bahru to visit a blogger (no longer active in blogging) cum friend C.


(1) I was suppose to meet C at 10.30am at Bukit Indah, left my house at 8.30am, giving me ample time to travel.  When i reach Singapore immigration, saw quite a number of coaches, i quickly whatsapp C that i might be late.  Above picture was taken after i clear Singapore Immigration and was waiting for the bus to take me to Malaysia Immigration.

(9) Reaching Aeon Mall (Bukit Indah) when i will alight and my friend will fetch me from there.  This is where i arrange to meet Claire the other time she was in JB.  Wonder when will Claire come to JB again, wink wink.


(10) I reached at around 10.35am and i didn't see my friend, so i thought i will walk into Aeon Bukit Indah and make use of the wifi at Starbuck and whatsapp my friend.  Usually when i enter Malaysia, i will switch off my data plan, to avoid accidentally incur any unnecessary charges and get a shock when the bill comes.


(11) While whatsapp my friend, saw this 财神爷 @ Aeon Bukit Indah, took picture of it.  Think some problem, i could not connect with the wifi, so i thought i will walk out and wait for my friend at the taxi stand.  It so happen my friend mention she didn't see me, so she drive one round and come back.


(12) My friend went to buy movie tickets for that night as she's watching movie with her family that night.  So i took the CNY decoration that i saw inside the shopping mall.


(13) Before going back Singapore, walk one round at City Square and took this picture of the Chinese New Year decoration.

(19) Thank God that the traffic is smooth on the way back to Singapore

  1. No traffic? I heard about the terrible jam at the Causeway, everyone is complaining that it is so hard, not so easy to go from JB to Singapore.

  4. That's why I hesitant to "jio" Singaporean friends to meet me in JB. It seems like it is a mega project to get from Singapore to JB/vice versa just for a short meet and greet... :/
