Chinese New Year Shopping In Johor Bahru - JBCC, City Square and KSL Mall
Managed to squeeze some time to head to Johor Bahru for some Chinese New Year Shopping. The exchange rate for S$1 to M$ is about 3.03. The low ringgit draws a lot of Singaporean like myself to head to Johor Bahru for a day trip shopping. It is very easy to travel to Johor Bahru. Refer my previous post on how to travel to Johor Bahru and another post on how to go to KSL Mall. Best avoid weekend as the queue might be very long. On reaching Johor Bahru, we headed to JBCC to exchange some Malaysian Ringgit. We found the money changer at JBCC gives better rate. Just next to the money changer is this little cafe serving nonya food. We had rendang chicken with nasi lemak rice. Sea Coconut JBCC Mall - is a little quiet City Square is crowded due to more shops in this mall. After shopping in City Square Mall, we took the public bus (S1) to KSL Mall to continue shopping. Managed to get some shoes and bags. But for clothings, I still prefer to shop in Singapore cause more familar to the fashion shops in Singapore. KSL Mall Could not resist buying snacks and cakes back to Singapore cause they are so much cheaper than Singapore. This kueh lapis (half size) costs me only RM40 (S$13.20) is cheaper by 50% back home. So happy with the day trip, mostly dining, tea break and some shopping. Hope to head to Malaysia again.
