Hutan Bandar, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia – part 3 of 4

Hutan Bandar, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia is rather odd. It is clear that a lot of money has been spent setting up the place, and some areas seem to be very well established as judged by the maturity of the trees and plants, however, other areas seem new, and already rather run down. It looks […]

Hutan Bandar, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia – part 2 of 4

In one section of the Hutan Bandar, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia is an orchid garden that was clearly originally set up as a ‘pay-to-enter’ venture as there was an abandoned ticket booth, however, sadly, the area has now been run down, there are no tickets to buy, and very few orchids grown. Below are photos […]

Hutan Bandar, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia – part 1 of 4

Well, Hutan Bandar park in Johor Bahru was a bit of an odd find. I can’t believe I have lived in the area for over two years and only just found this place. It is also a bit, shall we say, weird. I am not sure what the park is trying to be – play […]

Desaru Beach, Bandar Penawar, 81900 Kota Tinggi, Johor, Malaysia

Decided to go back and revisit Desaru Beach, which is about 90 minutes drive from where I am currently living in Malaysia. The beach is almost due east of Johor Bahru and the drive to it is along a pretty fast straight bit of road (toll). The beach represents the closest sandy beach to JB […]

Kranji Beach Battle Site, Singapore

After visiting Kranji War Memorial, Singapore, I decided to head to Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve and on the way I spotted Kranji Beach Battle Site, so I thought I would stop for a look. There is no parking at the beach, instead you have to park past the site and then walk past the structure […]

Piedra Negra Mexican Restaurant, 107 Jalan NB2 2/2, 81300 Johor Bahru, Johor

Piedra Negra Mexican Restaurant Iskandar Johor is not the sort of thing I would expect to come across in Malaysia… A Mexican restaurant. Seems odd, I know. Mexican in Asia, but it is there, and the food is pretty good. Plus, on Friday and Saturday nights there is usually some entertainment on. The place has […]

Breakfast At 7, Jalan Skudai, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

Breakfast At 7 is a great little restaurant on the outskirts of Johor Bahru, Malaysia, that serves a fantastic Indian breakfast. My personal favourite, Masala Dosa (fermented crepe made from rice batter and black lentils, filled with potato, methi (a member of the pea family, that produces aromatic seeds that are used for flavouring), curry […]
