Plan and book to visit Bali next month. Already booked our air tickets but were disappointed that we missed out the Jetstar promotion by two days otherwise we can save $50 per person. :( We have not booked our hotel rooms yet cause was worried if we can fly to Bali at all. Many flights were cancelled yesterday due to the volcanic eruption of Mount Kelud. Hope by next month all will be well and also hope no more casualties in this incident.

Continuing part 2 of our shopping at City Square which is just next to the Malaysia Custom Building. It was lovely decorated for the coming Chinese New Year. Centre of attraction of the decoration must be this Golden Horse but this year is the year of the wooden horse. There's a shop in the mall selling many local products of Malaysia, worth visiting this shop. Went for tea break at the basement of the mall and saw this funny advertisement hahaha. 20% for all FOOLS but is actually 20% for all FOODS but I guess someone decided to play a prank and altered the D to L. Went back to Singapore a very happy and satisfied shopper. :)

Yesterday my girlfriends and I decided to visit Johor Bahru for some dining and shopping. We took the MRT Train to Kranji and catch Bus No. 170 to Johor Bahru. It only took about 10 mins to reach the customs from Kranji MRT Station. You can view my previous post on how to take the bus to Johor Bahru from Kranji MRT Station. During my previous visit to KSL Mall, I took Bus no. S1 from the bus terminal below the Malaysia Custom Checkpoint building. This trip I took Bus no. IM17 by Maju bus company. The fare is also RM1.50 and seems to be shorter route to KSL Mall from this bus terminal as compared to Bus S1. You can view my previous post on how to go to the bus terminal from Malaysia Custom Checkpoint. From the bus I could see the big logo of KSL Mall because this bus stopped right infront of the main entrance of KSL Mall while Bus S1 stopped at another entrance of the mall where we could not see the big logo of KSL Mall. Brought my friends to Old Town Coffee House to eat the delicious rendang meals cause was the first time for one of my friend to visit this mall. I saw a coffee shop opposite the main entrance of KSL Mall selling Bak kut teh seems to be good cause of the big crowd in the coffee shop. The next trip, I definitely want to try the bak kut teh. It was defintely cheaper to eat in JB than in Singapore because of the strong S$. Lots of Chinese New Year cookies on sale in the mall cause Chinese New Year will here in about two weeks time. At the basement of the mall, a very fragrant smell emitted from this stall selling Penang Laksa. Really make me hungry but was too full to eat the penang laksa at this point. Bought two pairs of shoes from the mall, was really cheap when converted to S$ is about S$19 per pair. What a bargain!!! :) After a satisfied shopping, we decided to head to City Square Mall to continue our shopping spree. Went to the side entrance of the KSL mall where Bus S1 terminated to catch the bus back to JB Sentral. You can see my previous post on the location of S1 terminated at KSL Mall.

Getting ready to fly off from the runway of Incheon Airport, Seoul South Korea. View of South Korea from the plane, beautiful scene. I sat on the right side of the plane. Guess most of us loves to take photo of the clouds and sky from the plane. Sun setting Both hubby and me had the same baked fish with vegetables and potatoes. View of south korea from the plane.

Finally our last day in Seoul, time to go back to Singapore. I will miss South Korea very much. :( We had breakfast buffet in Hotel Aropa's cafe which costs 12,000 won per person. The breakfast buffet is quite good. Time to check out of hotel and cross over to the opposite side from Hotel Aropa to The Plaza Hotel to purchase our airport bus's ticket. The ticket can be purchased from the front desk of The Plaza Hotel. The ticket cost 16,000 won per adult, as we have too many luggages and boxes of shopping stuff hahaha, we had to take the airport bus to Incheon Airport instead of the subway train. If you dont have many pieces of luggages is cheaper to take the subway train to Incheon Airport. The service is very good at The Plaza Hotel, wish I could stay in this hotel but is a bit expensive. The bell boy will called us when the airport bus arrived and even carried our luggages for us even though we dont stay in this hotel. The airport bus arrived at the back door of the hotel and not the front door. The bus will arrived every 20 minutes duration. The seats in the airport bus are really comfortable and could be reclined all the way back and the best was only hubby and me occupied the whole bus throughout the journey from the hotel to Incheon Airport which takes about 1 hour trip, is like having a private limousine taking us there hahaha. Without hesitation, we quickly checked in our bag even though we are early, so we could take our time to have our lunch. Found this restaurant called Chow Buffet, they served international buffet, wide range of international food, really very good. Costs us only 22,000 won nett, really very worth. The assorted desserts , cakes and ice cream are my favourite. Ooo I love the mochi. Hubby ate so much of the fresh lychees. Saw this huge ball in Incheon Airport, with moving pictures.
