Say bye-bye to KL!

Let’s face it, living life in a metropolitan city like KL can be exhausting. From the infamous traffic jam that truly tests your patience, to the food prices that would dry up your wallet faster than you can say “Mahal-nya!”, KL is certainly capable of wearing you down.

As such, why not consider moving to Johor Bahru, also known to the locals as simply, ‘JB’?

#1: THE FOOD

Laksa Johor. Oh yum!

We Malaysians love our food, so you’ll feel right at home should you move to JB! In addition to the usual Malaysian dishes like Roti Canai and Chicken Rice, Johor Bahru offers their unique local cuisine such as Laksa Johor, Roti Titab (Toast with Poached Egg and Kaya Sauce) and Kacang Pool (Peanut sauce with fried egg, red onions, chilies and lime). Let’s not forget the sweet Sirap Bandung Soda (Condensed milk flavoured with rose cordial syrup and soda) to go with the dishes.

#2: WEEKEND IN SINGAPORE (OR BACK IN KL)

Johor Bahru is literally a bridge away to Singapore, so if you want to catch the latest events and splurge yourself with shopping, then just choose an option of either by car, bus, train (our favourite) or even a short flight to the Lion City. Just avoid the peak hour la.  Or you could take a 3-hour ride back to KL to meet up with your friends.

Oh, let’s not forget Johor Bahru is significantly less congested than in Kuala Lumpur, which means there is more time for yourself to do more activities. See #3 if you need ideas on what to do in JB!
