Raya Hols Part 2

Kays this part two will be more like a food journal...well okay it IS A JOHOR FOOD JOURNAL HEHE
so yeap, continue from part one, went south to Johor Bahru aka my cousin's hse on tuesday
Went to Universal Studios Singapore on the following day

Will blog about the full story in the next post

but before heading to Sentosa
had breakfast in JB first
A treat from uncle hehe
had Dimsum @ Kak Kak Restaurant 佳佳点心

Siu Mai 烧麦, Har Gao 虾饺 and Otak-Otak 乌达
Siu mai is delicious, chewy and yummy. Har Gao, okok, crunchy prawn inside.
Otak otak is the best haha....maybe because I just Love otak otak...
there's sweet and sour siu mai as well, which I didn't take photo, it's really good!

Raddish Cake 萝卜糕 on the right.
The rice on the left, i dunno what is it called, it's not Loh Mai Kai (糯米鸡)
it's really the normal white rice that we eat instead of glutinous rice.
it's delicious weih, the taste is similar, but less heavy than loh mai kai, and it's crunchier. 
Raddish cake was good, crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside. 


Basically the DimSum over there is quite good and the price is quite affordable.
Around 8 plates of Dimsum and 3 drinks only cost us about RM25.

Kak Kak Restaurant 佳佳点心楼
8, Jalan Maju, 
Taman Maju Jaya, 
Johor Bahru.

The next day, stayed home and watched movies and tv shows. Especially the ones from Singapore Channels hehe....why, coz Sg channels usually don't censor or cut their shows... yes I hate it when all the most gan jiong and most epic scenes are being cut, which is the case in Malaysia. :(

At night, went supper with cousins and our beloved Aunt Michelle @ Station One Taman Molek
Aunt Michelle is like the person that we can talk like friends and ask for help whenever we need her.
Her bedroom has been the gathering place for we children ever since we're young....
anyways, talked a lot about our past, laughed so bad i tell you!! Thunder strike Station One mannn

Lavender Milk Tea - RM5.90
Something new, but no surprise, it really is lavender tea with milk
But I've been a fan of lavender tea, so I love this drink anyway. hehe... 

Ice Blended Mocha
quite nice, the ice is blended smoothly and it doesn't taste like it's too diluted. 

Joseph and his Caramel Machiato  
and he said it's 黑糖玛奇朵

Deep Fried Squid Rings - RM10.90
quite nice, very crunchy and very large rings in fact
but as u can see, very small portion 

Wedges! RM7.90
The all time favorite
crunchy, crispy and delicious.  

Egg and Ham Sandwich with Chips - RM10.90
Nothing special, but quite yummy. The egg was delicious. One slice wasn't enough. 

The ambience was great, good place for gatherings...
according to the staff, there will be live performances on Monday, Friday and Saturday.

Station One Leisure Cafe @ Taman Molek
No 78, Ground Floor,

Go to Station One's website for list of other outlets :

And the next day, friday, hehe
went to AEON Tebrau City with the cousins for a movie...
PREMIUM RUSH was the pick
had lunch before the movie at Ichiban Ramen

Ebi Curry Don Set - RM 21.00
The set includes gyoza (dumplings), a miso soup and fruit.  
the rice is abit disappointing, too sticky.
The best thing is the tempura prawns, that's all. 

The fried dumplings (Gyoza) included in the set 
Quite okay...but I wished it could be crunchier. 

Tenshin Don - RM12.00
Is like omurice with gravy hehe
the gravy is nice, probably made from soy sauce, goes well with plain rice... 

Ichiban Ramen
S45, AEON Tebrau City
Jalan Desa Tebrau,
Johor Bahru 81100.

There are other outlets in Selangor and Penang too, but there's no website. Do search for it.

Lastly, a dessert to share with my cousins
Macaroons from El Migoz

6 Macaroons at RM12.50
flavor includes, lemon, coffee, choc, strawberry, green tea and the blue one which i dunno what flavor it is.
I know, so pretty and cheap right??
but sorry to say, it's not really nice...
I thought you cant go too different when it comes to macaroons
but I was wrong :(
the coffee flavor was nice, others were just okay...

anyways, El Migoz is a Mexican Restaurant
there's other desserts such as cupcakes and mini cakes..

El Migos 
Ground Floor AEON Tebrau City
No.1, Jalan Desa Tebrau, 
Taman Desa Tebrau, 
81100 Johor Bahru, Johor

then Saturday, had lunch with my family at Shun Fa Bak Kut Teh 顺发肉骨茶 
Yes, BKT is not only hit in Klang, but JB as well
you can find many BKT Restaurants
Sorry I didn't take any photos, but I really wanna recommend this shop.
Really delicious bak kut teh at a affordable price.
Here's the address
Jalan Permas 10/6
Permas Jaya, Johor Bahru. 

Then sunday...time to head home
left JB at 12pm to avoid the jam
had lunch in Yong Peng
福瑞兴餐厅 正宗福州面
Hock Swee Hin Restaurant 

had their famous FooChow Noodles and FooChow Fish Balls

Delicious FooChow Fish Ball Soup (with pork stuffed inside) 
love the chewy texture and the soup
they put lots of spring onions and shallots, which I like hehe...

 The FooChow Noodle
The noodles were okok oni, I think they didn't put enough black sauce, it didn't taste the same as before...
but the pork is nice, well marinated... still taste good.

Address below...

Next, went to Eng Hin Local Delicacies Shop to buy some local products especially FooChow specialties
Mommy bought who-knows-how-many packs of noodles, from mee suah to foochow noodles...*smackhead* The noodles are made by Eng Hin itself. 
for me, I was attracted to the nice aroma of bread 
then saw this flat and round bread that just got out of the oven...
the scent is like....awesome!!
asked mummy to buy immediately...

I dunno what exactly is this bread called, but you can find it right away in the shop, coz they made the bread in the shop. 
It's a FooChow traditional bread btw

There are several flavors, got the plain one, wheatflour, sesame, and peanut butter filling. 
I like the plain one, it's crunchy and unlike normal breads that has a very soft and bouncy texture, the bread is actually very dense and chewy. Obviously they didn't add any type of flour rising agents.   
It's around RM0.60 - RM0.70 per piece. depending on the flavor. 
Delicious anyway :D

there's other kinds of bread and local products up for sale... 

A peek at the bread factory right next to the shop.

Eng Hin Bakery and Noodles
14 Jalan Besar
Yong Peng

Hock Swee Hin is on the same street as Eng Hin, just a few lots away.
I guess the shop number is 2 or 4 since it's the 2nd shop from the end of the road. 

Don't miss this 2 shops as they are the must-visit place in Yong Peng which has a major number of FooChow people.

Hehe awesome food trip in Johor throughout the weekend.
Now, short review of Premium Rush

Basically the story is about a bicycle messenger who is chased around New York City by a dirty cop who wants an envelope the messenger has. 
Starring Joseph Gordon Levitt hehe the cute guy from Inception and Dark Knight.
Really gotta praise him and other actors who cycled so so much in the movie...
For 3 quarters of the movie, u see people cycling, and most of them is Joseph Gordon Levitt.
I'm quite sure he did most of the scenes himself...

anyways, the story line is fact I didn't really understand the value of the "ticket"
the main focus is on the 90 minutes journey where he had to deliver the mail while being chased by both the bad guys and the cops. and he had to encounter the busy New York streets. Some might think it's boring, but I actually kinda like it.
It has a lot of energy and passion in this film, and also shows the details and emotions of a passionate cyclist who doesn't have a brake and only one gear on his bike. I feel like cycling again after watching it.
If you like thrills, chasing and racing, watch it!
