- Dim Sum

- Durian

- Porridge

- Chee cheong fun

When we go to Malaysia, we always look out for dim sum and durian places.

Here are some of the places we’ve visited:

Tong Dim Sum is located at Bukit Indah, a convenient drive from the Second Link.

Most of the food items are priced around RM5. Our favourite dim sum items were the fried prawn rolls and red bean buns.

If you haven’t been to Kuching, you should seriously consider a vacation there.

Kuching has a wide variety of activities for families with kids, from nature to playgrounds, from supermarkets to night markets, from beaches to caves.

Kuching is also just an hour’s flight away from Singapore, hence this destination is suitable for families who are flying with children for the first time or who prefer a quick, manageable flight.

We flew by MAS as the airline was having a sale, with 30kg of check in luggage per person, reasonable flight timings during the day and prices which were not too different from budget airlines.

To save money, we have been taking short family trips to Johor, which has many treasures to discover and appreciate. It is easy to find places to visit via blogs, TripAdvisor and Google Maps.

Although we couldn’t finish visiting all the interesting sights in these two towns, I hope this will give you a better idea of what you can do in Batu Pahat and Yong Peng.

What To Do In Batu Pahat

Batu Pahat is about a 2 plus hour drive from Singapore. It is a…

Johor Bahru & nearby: Cheap things to do with Kids Part 2 in Kluang!

Kluang (bat in Malay) is home to several organic farms and has an old school charm.

Our trip this time round consisted of visiting Kluang, Batu Pahat and Yong Peng. After researching accommodation and attractions in each area, we chose to stay in Kluang and travel to the other areas during the day.

In comparison, Yong Peng didn’t have much activities and shopping centres to hang out at night (Kluang has 2 shopping centres with cinemas and an Aeon Big), and Batu Pahat was a longer drive away from the North South Highway compared to Kluang so it would be…

Johor Bahru is an multi-hyphenate destination in Malaysia. It has shopping, eating, city, nature, new towns and old towns within a short drive.

2. and Beat the Jam! — to monitor traffic on the Causeway and Second Link

3. Grab — for transport when we…

Before you judge these women, understand first why they choose to stay in abusive relationships.

You may know a beautiful woman who seems to have gotten her life together successfully, except she harbours a dark secret of how her boyfriend abuses her when no one is looking.

Abuse doesn’t only come in the form of physical, but also emotional.

Why are such successful women still staying with their abusive boyfriends when they deserve better?
