Travelogue: Johor 2D1N

When you need a getaway but wallet ain’t cooperative, JB is the best alternative!

Can’t even recall what was our conversation about and we ended up booking a night in JB KSL D’Esplanade (from Airbnb) – as we were on budget trip that explain why we decided not to book a hotel! There are a whole lot of apartment you can book at KSL area and most of them are in D’Esplanade (which is the condo next to KSL)

We booked our apartment for SGD52.63 (including cleaning & service fee) for a night with WiFi – but the connection sucks. I ended up activating my data roam service!

But on the bright side, at least I didn’t spend a bomb to have a decent room.

 

Room on a high floor with Balcony overlooking the City!

 

Comes with ceiling fan, aircon and TV. Both fan and aircon are in good condition but the TV.. Don’t bother – can see any image, can only hear sound. Wardrobe is clean and it comes with iron!

Panorama view from Bed

If you’re planning to cook, good news, stove is available for you! Comes with washer and dryer too!

Seriously, $50 for a apartment with clean toilet and a bathtub, i guess i just need to bear with the WiFi… LOL!! If you’re a regular there, I’m sure you know it’s really a good location. Just above KSL and whole lot of eating options available from day to night! For all its the convenient, $50? Just take it.

We arrived later than anticipated due to custom jam. We left home around 8am but only reach JB at 10am? Lucky we still have time for breakfast before our movie!! We head to Tian Xiang for breakfast (fishball noodle) and than walked back to KSL for our movie! Book your movie ticket online, save the time to queue.. LOL!

By 3pm, we were ready to leave for our massage session at Big Foot Ancestor! We tried searching online a few times for the massage menu but couldn’t find any.. So for the benefit of my reader & myself, here comes the menu:

It doesn’t looks like those super cheap massage but with the exchange rate, I think they’re still pretty much affordable for me! What I like about BFA is, they offer ear cleaning service! Yes, they dig your ears for you!! LOL!! Shiokz!

The whole trip’s highlight probably is just the massage! Love the clean place and rejuvenating massage! Give it a try if you like TCM kinda massage!

Oh Oh! Did I mention, Lavendar Flagship Store is just opposite BFA! Of course, we went there tooo!

We spent quite a while in Lavendar – browsing bread, cakes, mooncake, food item and then decided to come back for lunch on our 2nd day!

On our second day, we took a grab to Lavendar (RM5) and started kiaping all the bread and cookies!

After that we head up for lunch and good thing we were there for lunch instead of coffee. Because the minimum spending is one food item (fr RM8) per person! Since we’re there for lunch, no problem at all!

Tea & Ice Chocolate

Mushroom Soup

Verdict: Not too bad! Their croissant is fresh and the saute mushroom is flavorful! Try again? Definitely but maybe other food items next time!

2 day 1 night isn’t really that long.. Very soon, we were on our way home! Thanks to our private driver, we get to rest our body & soul to & from JB!
