Kluang Half Day Trip

MA201410070839570067-02-000286000[1]

It was a sudden decision to go on a day trip to Kluang on Hari Raya Haji public holiday. We depended on our GPS which was a disgrace, bringing us through long, winding kampung (village) roads and around palm tree plantations. I think I need to upgrade it.

When we finally arrived at our first destination, Kluang Rail Coffee, it was closed for the holiday. ISH!

It was almost 1 pm. We took some photos at the rail station before driving to the town centre to look for food.

We saw an elderly couple walked towards Star Coffee House and Restaurant (since 1979), so we followed. Was glad that it was air-conditioned when the restaurant manager told us they were fully booked for lunch. sigh.

We crossed a couple of streets and found a food court. We shared a plate of char kway teow (fried noodles, RM4) and a bowl of Sarawak Kolo noodles (RM4.30). A glass of homemade ice lemon tea costs RM1.50. The fried noodles with lots of fresh cockles and fried lard was very good, it had wok hei.

This Central Cafe chicken rice shop was packed with diners. We ordered a plate of kampung chicken rice (breast meat RM3.50). They had bitter gourd soup and homemade luo han guo drink that day, we ordered but they forgot our orders.  :D

We decided to go back early to Singapore with a stopover at Taman Sutera to pick up some Malaysian snacks.

    1. The seafood restaurants probably open in the late afternoon or at night. I didn't see any seafood restaurants that are opened.

    1. So I am not the only one experiencing problems with my GPS. :)

      It was scary when my crazy GPS brought us to some unknown places. We were going round and round palm tree plantations.... more than 132 km! It was a waste of time.

      Then another time it brought us to a Malay village. We were the only foreign car in this village and the villagers were watching.... wondering why this weird couple were going round and round their small lanes. We were trying to find the exit!! haha....
