Weekend in Johor.
So our trip to Johor started a little later than what we expected. ;) Suppose to leave by 9.30 a.m. Only managed to leave around 11.30 a.m. after brunch at O'Briens in Great Eastern Mall. Good drive all the way down south with me at the wheels of a Mitsubishi Airtrek. Made it down in record time too I might add. Had to get there to check in by 3 p.m. cause the boys had a 5 p.m. soundcheck at Hutan Bandar [Urban Jungle] for their first gig of the weekend.
Didn't take much photos of the places but did manage to get a photo of this curry fish head that we had for dinner at Yap and Suzie's place after the soundcheck. It was so good that I am still having a sore-throat after eating it. :P
So the next day, they had to give a little talk about being musicians to a bunch of young Rotarians at a secluded resort near Sedili, which was organized by Fancy. The best resort I've seen so far and it's not well-known but the upkeep of the place, the food and the VIEW is out of this world!
How's this for a view? ;)
Or this? The photos aren't doing much justice for the place so you'll just have to take my word for it! :)
The food is sumptuous! I was so busy eating and enjoying the fresh seafood that I only managed to take a photo of the prawns, which are caught fresh just a few hours before they are served to us. :D
For the price of RM 350 for a 3D/2N stay with food and accomodation taken care of... This is one place I'll be keeping a secret of! :)
So with the talk out of the way, we had to head back to town for their soundcheck at TaatHouse for their last gig in Johor.
Nice fancy place with a variety of food being served.
They have 3 menus for you to choose from Western, Penang and Local I think... too many choices! So spoilt for choice. hahaha. ;)
Having Penang food in Johor, what a weird experience. :P
Couldn't get much photos as we were rushing for time... had to finish dinner quick, get back to New York Hotel for a quick bath and out again to the venue for their performance. Was almost late but we managed to get there on time. :P
All in all, a good trip but a little rushed. :) Would have been nice if we could stay for another night. :D Eat till we dropped. haha. :)
