KOMTAR Johor Bahru City Centre (JBCC), Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

KOMTAR Johor Bahru City Centre (JBCC) Mall is next door to the Johor Bahru City Square Mall (108 Jln Wong Ah Fook, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia), and is the newest shopping mall in the centre of Johor Bahru. The mall seems to me mainly focussed on high-end clothing. The mall is very brand new […]

Johor Bahru City Square, 108 Jln Wong Ah Fook, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

OK, I am not a big fan of shopping, or of shopping malls (if I had to go shopping I would far rather spend my time poking around in a small shop or a market), but even I will admit that Malaysia tends to do big shopping malls very well, and two great examples can […]

Bogyoke Market (Scotts Market), Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma)

Bogyoke Market (Scotts Market) in Yangon (Rangoon) is a famous local market that sells material, paintings, clothes, gems and jewellery. It is supposedly the place to go to shop. However, I personally think it is a bit a tourist trap. Entrance to the market. Not sure about the birds. What are they for? The market […]

The Spars of Europe

You very rarely see a Spar shop in the UK but pretty much everywhere I ski in Europe I find a Spar. The one in Niederau is about a 15 minute walk from the Hotel Sonnschein. The Spar is pretty good with a wide range of food, vegetables, meat, bread and wine/beer on sale. Unfortunately […]

Trip to Singapore…. Visting Chinatown

Singapore is an interesting place to visit (although admittedly not my kind of place as I am not really a city person) as there is always a lot going on… Note: This was my first outing with my camera since discovering my interest in street photography on a trip to Zurich, Switzerland. If you have […]

Shopping in Malaysia….

By on May 18, 2013 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

I don’t think I will ever get the hang of shopping here… Today I bought two small table lights and a duvet cover. The table lights were RM88 (~£18 or $27) each, and I needed two bulbs at RM14 (£3 or $4.50 (energy saving)). So, 88 times 2, plus 14 times 2. I make that […]

888 Yee Sang Party at City Square, Johor Bahru, Malaysia

In the City Square Mall in Johor Bahru they appear to be holding some sort of giant Chinese New Year celebration party called ‘888 Yee Sang Party at City Square’. I was not too sure what Yee Sang is so I did a quick wikipedia on it. Turns out it is a Teochew-style raw fish […]

Angry Bird Water?  Why not?

Popped in to the local supermarket on the way home to buy some milk etc. when I encountered…. And thought, why not? However, what I don’t understand is – what does Angry Birds have to do with water? Are the birds angry that the water has been bottled? Will drinking it make me an Angry […]

More monkeys, lunch and getting some keys cut…

No monkey sightings today but those paw prints and certainly weren’t on the window frame when I left were work this morning… Not too sure what I had for lunch today. It was good, but not as good as the Pataya I had for lunch yesterday. It was tasty, but the fried egg on top […]
