Satisfy Your Cravings on Lyf&Spice!

Another Friday, another series from yet another wander lover that I’d like to cover on our The Wander Lover Series: Worry. Story. Glory. feature.

This time, it’s Lyf&Spice‘s turn!

Written by a dreamer as well as foodie and travel freak, Lyf&Spice is here to celebrate 2 (two) main flavours of life for her – travel and food. I mean, I’m sure some of you are on the same page with her at some point right? At least I am. 😉

The first time I landed on her page, my first impression was this: this blog is a big deal! 😀

It has received so many awards. Not only that it’s on the list of Top 30 Malaysia Travel Blog, but it’s also on the Top 30 Asia Travel Blog!

As I Stayed at I Stay Hotel in JB…

Unlike other cities in Malaysia, I suppose Johor Bahru is not exactly the traveler’s option to visit like Penang, Langkawi or generic Kuala Lumpur because to tell you the truth, there’s nothing much to see in Johor Bahru, or typically shortened as JB.

Most people would probably choose JB only for a transit as the city connects the rest of Malaysia to good ol’ Singapore. Other than that, nowadays you can also visit Legoland or Hello Kitty Town, but then again people rarely make JB their main destination when it comes to traveling.

I was almost relocated to JB for my previous job only to find out that the location of my office is not so far from Legoland, which is practically out of nowhere. But FYI, Legoland is fairly far from the downtown so it’s only normal if you find it hard to get Uber or GrabCar at after office hour.

Therefore, in my last visit to JB, I chose to stay in the downtown as per my friend’s suggestion. As the hotel options in JB can be considered as more expensive than those in KL, I’ve chosen the one that is most suitable for my budget: I Stay Hotel.

Easy Road Trip From Malaysia To Singapore Through EasyBook.Com

I’m a big fan of road trip!

Honestly, if I had so much time to travel, I’d choose road trip over flights anytime. I mean, I always get amazed with the scenery I see during my road trip while I can only see clouds on the flight when I open the window blind.

So when I decided to visit Malaysia and Singapore recently, I didn’t hesitate to ensure my brother that we were gonna have a road trip from Malaysia to Singapore by bus as it’s the easiest and cheapest way to travel back and forth.

For my trip this time, I didn’t even try to check any information on the internet because I believe things would be easier nowadays. The last time I had a road trip in Malaysia, it was in 2013, then my sister and I managed to have a nice trip so I suppose with easier technology and so many startups here and there, the road trip this time would be even a whole lot easier and I was right!

The first day in KL, I told my brother that it would be better for us to book a bus ticket for the next day so we could arrange what time we should leave to TBS (Terminal Bersepadu Selatan, bus station in Kuala Lumpur). What I did was just googling the bus ticket from Kuala Lumpur to Melaka and the next thing I knew, I booked the ticket through!
