Awesome Threesome in JB

>> Monday, January 19, 2009

Dates: 17-18 January 2009, Saturday & Sunday
Venue: Taman Pelangi, Johor Bahru
Occasion: 'Annual' meet-up with my very close friends, Mabel & Fern


17 January 2009, Saturday
The bus left Puduraya at least 20min late!!! *bummer!!* I arrived at the Terminal Larkin, Johor Bahru, around 1.45am...wergh...the bus that I took was actually quite fast already, but somehow we still took more than 4 hours to arrive at JB :( Super sad la...silly bus stopped once at Yong Peng & a few more times along the way to the terminal to drop people off *sigh* The ride was one of the most horrible ones- boring, smelly!! & noisy (the bus)...I've been taking that same bus company since years, each time I travel from KL to JB, but this bad experience kinda puts me off & I may never take the same bus company again *wergh*

Anyways, meeting up with Mabes & Fernie was all good :) The weekend was SUPER relaxing, yet a blast of a time... :D Uncle Victor, Mabes' dad commented 'bout our weekend: "Eat, eat, eat...that's all you girls do throughout the weekend..." I can't deny that truth :P


The first thing that we had when I arrived in JB past midnight- McD's!

We talked 'til the cows come home' after I arrived...and knocked off only around 4am or so :D Siaoness...and woke up only around 11am! Hohoho...the latest I've ever woken up this year ;) The 1st agenda of the day-> BRUNCH! Oh yeah...there's nothing else as good as fooooood *drools* Beef noodles at Cathay it was!


This beef noodles is just as good as the Seremban market one...no doubt it's different in terms of taste & gooey-ness of the sauce, but both are great nonetheless :D Beef slices were tender, beef "whatever else" were juicy, & overall, the noodles was yummilicious! I could eat a large bowl of it!! *lol* But this beef noodles are quite costly le...RM6 for a regular & RM7 for a large!! Eekk....



The other dish that we ordered was the "lou ngap" (duck cooked in soya sauce). Excellent :D Need I say more?


The awesome threesome, as we call ourselves, spent the rest of the day watching a movie (License to Wed...cheesy, but hilarious!), playing the piano/jamming, singing, & chatting...ah...nice nice nice :) *I miss my weekend! nostalgic...* After the movie, we walked out to the nearby Ice Kacang stall, for the all-time lovely ice kacang with chocolate sauce! *drools again* No ice kacang in PJ/KL or wherever else can compete with this ice kacang so far ;)

We'll always go to this one stall...there are several stalls selling the same kind of ice kacang, but this particular stall's is the best! Too bad I forgot to take a photo of the stall *sigh* Anyways, this stall is in the middle, & it sells taufu bakar, rojak, & other noodle dishes as well...


Taman Pelangi's Ice Kacang (RM2.50/bowl)

Taman Pelangi's Ice Jelly (RM2.50/bowl)

Dinner was at Sa Low Seafood Restaurant (where else? :P) It's THE place to go as 1. it serves good food 2. it's walking distance from the house 3. the service is fast. Fantastic. I love the fried squids there! I could finish up at least half the large plate of fried squids!! *lol* The restaurant is located directly opposite the ice kacang area!!

Here are several lovely dishes that we had:




Snapshots of the Awesome Threesome ;) (psst...i love you both, Mabes & Fernie!!)


Basically, after dinner, the 3 of us just chilled, did more catching up & spent time together, before the day closes. Fern had to head back to Singapore the night itself :( We really wished that we could spend more time together...we only get to do this max once a year! *sigh* What to do? The cow's (Mabes) in Aussie, the plant's (Fern) in Singapore, while the sheep/goat (your's truly) is still in Malaysia...



Mabes & I ended the night by watching "The Bucket List" & chatting til we knocked off. The movie was really moving...made us think of how we are spending every minute of our lives & how we would wanna make our lives worth-living. Saturday passed SO fast :(

18 January 2009, Sunday
Breakfast was nasi lemak & OTAK-OTAK!! *woot!!* We went to this place called Storia Cafe, opposite Pacific Mall, behind Wisma Nufri, in JB :) Awesome otak-otak...fresh some more :D

Too bad I didn't manage to get any photos as I forgot to bring my camera! Bleagh! See la...this is what happens when I've to wake up early for breakfast...sure forget something wan...but I managed to locate another blogger who blogged about this place & its food! Check it out here ;) I'm getting my sister to take some photos of the otak-otak that I bought home. It costs RM0.60/piece. Very yummy!

After breakfast, we attended church service at JB Wesley...it feels like a mini 'home-coming'...my once-a-year visit to this church...hahaha...there were so many familiar faces, but I just can't recall their names...how to recall when I'm only there once a year? *wergh* Oh yes, here I present to you the new church building!! LOVELY!


Before I left for KL again, we went for lunch at some restaurant, which once again I forgot its name....I go there every time I'm in JB, but ergh....The Kuey Teow Soup here is mmmmm....





I miss Mabes & Fern, & the families in JB :( *nostalgic* I'll be back in JB, most probably in March! That time, Mabes won't be around :( I'd be there with the TRAC MYF comm. though ;) Should be another fun time!
