1 staycation 2 Birthdays

We stayed over at Johor over the Christmas weekend. Johor Bahru is so near it feels more like a Johor staycation.

Our Birthday and Christmas boy, Boon Wee celebrated his Birthday near Sutera Mall (Taman Sutera Utara).

Sutera Mall for our Dinner and celebration. There are a lot of eateries and entertainment to explore around this area.

So happy that 大舅 and Heng family can join us 🙂

Boon Yee’s Birthday (27 Dec) celebration at Saizeriya. It does not take a lot to make him happy, Boon Yee is always so sweet, he will make sure everyone has a portion before serving himself 🙂

What else did we do during our staycation in Johor Bahru?
Kids love sports, be it outdoor or in arcade 🙂

Xin’s cheeky Gokart debut.

Kart group 🙂 Read our previous Fun review from Plentong.

Souvenirs 叉燒酥 from Ming An (明安 is opposite KSL)
Johor Bahru

Kids had a lot of memories with these balls and tortoises!

Singaporeans normally gather around KSL and City Square area (2). If we drive out another 30 minutes, more Food and adventure awaits.

3- Plentong Go Kart (previously known as Permas Jaya)
4- Mount Austin, this area is hip and packed with niche F&B outlets (Do pop by Hazel’s sweet cafe review)
5- Sutera Mall is a convenient one-stop venue for shopping and eating. Its backyard neighbourhood is very happening in the evenings. We follow BPDG’s hotel and food recommendations 🙂
6. Before heading back to SG, we drove to Gelang Patah (near Legoland) for Seafood lunch
