Johor Bahru, Malaysia Trip
Last Saturday, my two friends and I went to Johor Bahru in Malaysia.  I think it was my fifth time to visit JB.  Johor Bahru by the way is very close to Singapore and you can take a bus.  A lot of people from Singapore visits JB to shop, to eat and also to buy gasoline.  It is cheaper compared to First World Singapore.  Anyway, if you are planning to visit JB by land make sure to have lots of patience since it is very traffic especially on weekends.

I was fascinated by the way with the Immigration of JB.  The new building is finally operational and it was much convenient for travelers.  When we arrived at the nearest mall, we went looking for Kenny Rogers.  That was by the way our initial purpose of visiting JB.  The food was good but the service was very poor.

After our lunch at Kenny Rogers, we have decided to go to other places.  We took a cab to visit nearest Waterfalls but the taxi driver doesn't know where it is.  We alighted then at the Sikh Temple where we had our first photo session.  We then went to the Bazaar Street but it opens at night time.  On our way to the Chinese Temple, we went to the mall to pee.  On our way back, we were suddenly approached by Marketing people of a certain spa.  We ended up having a facial treatment for 1 hour and 45 minutes for only 29 RM (12 SGD).  Cool and cheap right?

It was a 30-minutes taxi ride to the spa.  The experience was great but I was in tears during the facial treatment.  It has been a long time since I had my facial that it was too painful for me now.  After the facial, we went to the supermarket to buy some grocery stuffs and to buy the gift for the baby shower I am also attending that night.

After our quick shopping, we went to eat at Family Food Court where I had the chicken with mushroom.  Anyway, it was a long ride back to the Immigration because of the heavy traffic.  We arrived Singapore past 12 midnight and I headed to the baby shower.  It was definitely a long day!
