Things to do in Sekinchan


I still remember when I’m still a kids, my mum told me that the rice we eat everyday are mainly from Thailand.

As I grow, I realised that there are paddy fields in Malaysia, which supply part of the rice we eat everyday. The paddy field are located mainly in Kedah.

In recent year, due to the filming of few scenes at the paddy field in Sekinchan, it’s goes viral and become one of the most popular attraction in Malaysia.

Sekinchan, a small town which is located about 100km from Kuala Lumpur. The town have the wide area of paddy field , which supply the rice, and in the same time, it is also a fishing village, which supply the fresh seafood.

Before I visited Sekinchan, I was once amazed how fast Sekinchan gain it’s popularity and become the top tourist attraction in Malaysia. Before that, It’s just a quiet fishing village.

I believe the power of social media help in spreading the beauty of Sekinchan.
The most viral photo you can see in Facebook and Instagram about Sekinchan will be the greeny paddy field.

“ The beauty of nature can’t replace with any other attractions”

It’s explained well why Sekinchan become famous. When your life is full of works and study in the busy bustle city, you will look forward a place that you can slow down your pace and relax your mind.
Sekinchan is the place for those “big-city, busy” people looking for an escape.

1. How long I should spend in Sekinchan? I would recommended to stay at least 1 night in Sekinchan. There are quite a few accommodation nearby Sekinchan for your choice. ( Check out here for more Sekinchan Hotel )

Get your Fresh Juice @ Juseu Juice, Mount Austin.


I believe most of us drink fruit juice. However, we are not aware of the type of juice we drink.
In recent years, there are growing number of cafe selling cold-pressed juice, which refers to juice that uses a hydraulic press to extract juice from fruit and vegetables. For our impression, cold-pressed juice are normally high cost, as they claims that the nutrient of fruit is well-preserved in the juice.

I always wonder the fruit juice should left some pulp, if they really get the juice from the fruit. The pulp of fruit normally rich with fibre.
Here's come to the idea of making fresh fruit juice with pulp, without adding sugars, water and preservative.
Juseu Juice, located in the heart of Austin Height shoplot, served the fresh juice with innovative and creative idea.



You might wonder why I mentioned "innovative & creative". You can create and mix the fruit, vegetable and topping, using all this cute, colourful blocks.



You can put your blocks together, and scan the match. There are wide variety of fruit and vegetable for you to mix and match. If you don't know what to choose, you can put a "surprise" block, the system will help you decide the match of your juice today.


What will display when you scan the blocks you chose? It will show the nutrient content and calories. It's great for those who want to control the calories intake. 

The juice is obtained using the slow juicer, which is a preferred way compare to normal blender.
Tadaa~~ For my juice, I added some chiaseed as topping.
Overall, your every sipping of juice, you will feel the pulp, but in the same time, all these pulp is nicely swallow, just like the other normal juice.
The sweetness of the juice is natural and from the fruit itself. There is not extra adding of sugar and water.
The price of a bottle of fresh juice might be slightly higher compare to other normal juice, considering as the juice is originally from fruit itself only, without adding anymore sugar, ice and water. A significant amount of fruits needed in order to make a bottle of fresh juice.

Besides the fresh juice, Juseu Juice served the smoothie bowl as healthy snack.
As you see from the picture, It consists lots of grains and fruits.


Do come and try their juice and healthy snack at Juseu Juice. Start your healthy life today ~~~

Johor Bahru Food Hunting Adventure #1


Johor Bahru, a city where I was born and grew up. It's more well known when you mention it's the city next to Singapore.
It's not a city that you will see a lot of tourists, if compare to other cities in Malaysia.
As a traveler, travel is to discover the hidden and unusual attraction.
All the city have it's own unique beauty and you just need to find it. There is no boring city, it's depend on how you have fun in the place you visit.

If you are food lover, do check out this guide for your reference when you come and visit Johor Bahru.

9am- 1st stop : Breakfast

Skipping a meal can set you up for overeating in the next meal of the day. Eating breakfast is important to refresh and energise yourself. Here's I suggested 2 different breakfast in JB town area.

Curry Hor Fun 
For those who love curry and spicy, you may love to have this curry hor fun from Seng Kee at Taman Sri Tebrau.
Not very spicy, which is well suit to me, with some vege and meat as the ingredients with the hor fun.
As I see the whole coffee shop, almost all tables have at least an order for curry hor fun.
This curry hor fun only sell in the morning, so do wake up early to enjoy this breakfast.



Kee Kim Huat Kopitiam
80, Jalan Badik, Taman Sri Tebrau, Johor Bahru 



Hainanese Porridge
If you prefer a plain breakfast, porridge maybe is a good choice for you.
The rice is cooked until grainy and thick, with some pork meat, fried shallots and You Char Kway.
You may add the egg, which is optional with extra charge.


Multi Mart kopitiam
Jalan Harimau Akar, Taman Century, Johor Bahru, Malaysia





10.30am - 2nd stop : Danga Bay, Johor Bahru. 
After the breakfast, Enjoy your day at Danga Bay with the breeze and facilities. 
There are some facilities you may use, such as the man-made beach, garden and sport facilities in Country Garden Danga Bay. Some are free and some are chargeable.

Country Garden Danga Bay, 
Jalan Bertingkat Skudai, 80200 JB, Johor. 




11.30am - 3rd stop : Morning Snack

Food hunting continued with a simple morning snack in Johor Bahru.
I guess most of us didn't heard about this snack " Kacang Pool"
Kacang Pool, which is a kind dish adapted from Middle East.
As you can see from the photo, it served with thick toast, and the specially made bean sauce with an egg.
One of the most famous stall served the Kacang Pool is located at Larkin.



Medan Selera Bomba Larkin
26, Jalan Tun Abdul Razak, Taman Larkin , 80350 Johor Bahru. 





12.30pm - 4th stop : Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman Glass Temple
Don't miss this popular Indian Temple in JB, which it's interior and exterior is covered in glass.
It' free entrance for all the Malaysian, with a charge of RM3 if you would like to take picture or video with camera or phone.
It is beautiful and stunning. The temple is not big, but the location is a bit difficult to search.
I and my friend spent some time in this temple, appreciate the beauty of temple and the light reflection of the glass.







1.30pm - 5th stop : Lunch
We went to a restaurant nearby to have some seafood lunch. One of the special seafood they served will be this boneless fried fish.
The only part of this fish which can't eat is the tail. It's not fried until crispy, but very fragrance with soft flesh.



Seng Steam Fish Restaurant
120, Malaysia, 100, Jalan Keris, Taman Sri Tebrau, 80050 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia



2.30pm - 6th stop : Dessert/ Tea time 
After the lunch, we went for dessert. With the sunny weather, it's great to have some Cendol to make ourselves refresh and cool.
This cendol is not very sweet, as they used the palm sugar, with rich of coconut milk.
I ordered a Cendol Special, which has glutinous rice besides the ice shave.



We ordered some Malay Kuih such as fried banana, banana fritter and some keropok.
Well, there is always have another stomach which reserve for the dessert and snack. Haha~~


Cendol House, 
41, Jalan Utama, Kampung Melayu Majidee, 81100 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia





3.30pm - 7th stop :  Shopping time!! ( City Square, Komtar CC or KSL Mall) 
The top 3 most happening shopping malls which are near to the city centre. 
No matter when you visit this 3 shopping mall, there is always the crowd. 

PS: Komtar CC and City Square are just next to each other, walking distance from the JB CIQ Complex (JB custom) 
From JB CIQ Complex (JB custom), you may reach KSL Mall by taking a public bus S1 by Causeway Link  or Bus IM17 by Maju Bus Company (Fare: RM1.50 one way) 



6.30pm - 8th stop : Dinner 
End your tired day with a nice, scrumptious dinner of claypot chicken rice, located at the same kopitiam with the 1st stop of breakfast, at Taman Sri Tebrau. 
Claypot chicken rice is always my favourite, compare to a normal chicken rice. The claypot rice is typically cooked over a charcoal stove, which adds a unique smokey and charred flavour to it.


Kee Kim Huat Kopitiam
80, Jalan Badik, Taman Sri Tebrau, Johor Bahru 






No matter what's your reason to choose Johor Bahru as one of your travel destination, hope you enjoy this city. You will never regret of spending time to discover the beauty of Johor Bahru.

Some tips on how to choose the right watches.


Did you wear watch?
What is your purpose to wear watch? As a time-keeping device??

I still remember the first watch I got from my parents. It was a cartoon-designed digital watch..
Until now , watch is still important to me, to remind myself the time, especially when I'm in a place without a clock.



Nowadays, most of the people don't use their watches for telling the time. Instead, they can also use their smartphone as a time-keeping device. Watch is not just to tell you the time. It is usual to have more than 1 function-able watch, to match our outfit of the day.

Believe it or not, a right watch will make your appearance look attractive and appealing .
Watch is one of the important fashion accessories.
Watch can be a symbol of status too.

In the current market, there is wide variety of watches available.
Here's are 2 simple tips from me on how to choose a suitable watch:

1. The formality of your outfit
Analog watches are considered classic and formal, making them suitable for business, formal events or a date.
The material and colour of strip should match with your outfit.
For casual, you can wear digital watch or smartwatch.
Size of the watch needs to be fit with your wrist size too.
Metal strip analog watch match with light colour formal dress. 

2. Match your watches with your shoes. 
A black watchband is more suited for formal events.
Silver watches match best with dark colour shoes such as  black and grey ;
Gold watches go with browns or other earth tones colour of shoes. 
When you wear a leather shoes, match it with your leather strip watch. 
For men, since there are not much fashion accessories can be used, therefore a stylish watch will add a lot of impression to their appearance.


Do check out some of the latest modern women watches to find the suitable watch to spruce up your look!!!


Black band watch match with semi-casual dark outfit

Wecomed Grand Opening @ AEON Tebrau City


Since the new wing of AEON mall Tebrau City open, there are a lot of new brands, having their outlet in this mall, which provided customers ( like me, Yeah~~)  with more variety of choice in different aspects.
It's glad to know that Wecomed,  a revolutionary SkinCare Retail Concept Incepted by Apex Group, have their outlet in AEON mall last month. It located at 1st floor, opposite to 許留山Hui Lau Shan Healthy Dessert shop.




It's my honour to witness their grand opening of the outlet.





Wecomed provides the facial treatment service, such as their most signature CLAP treatment. Besides that, Wecomed sells variety range of skincare product, from the mask, sunblock, BB cream, Cleansing foam, makeup remover, etc......
This outlet is target to sell their best selling skincare product. One of the latest Wecomed product will be this Wecomed Magic Water.


Well, according to the beauty advisor of Wecomed, this product is the most popular among their customers. They are highly confident with this magic water, which you can't find from other brands of magic water or moisture mist. Here are the 4 important selling points of this Wecomed Magic water: 

- Nano size water molecules, which can freely penetrate into your skin. 

- FREE from paraben, artificial chemicals and fragrances, which make it suitable for all type of skin, especially the sensitive skin. 

- Negative ions, which help to neutralise all harmful substances and microoragnism, and promote the blood circulation. 

- Made from natural botanical fruit enzymes, such as papaya, pineapple, etc.., which provides the source of anti-oxidant and refresh your skin. 


Here's the ingredients used in Wecomed Magic Water. ( Lots of fruit and plant extract used!!!!) 

Another amazing thing to be mentioned about this Magic water will be the long lifetime. As you can see the expire date at the bottom of the bottle, you can keep the magic water up to 3 years. 
No worry if you have a big bottle ( 210 ml) of Wecomed Magic Water. 
There is small convenient bottle ( 60ml), which you can get it free when you buy the big bottle . 
How to use Wecomed Magic Water??
- Just spray to your face, eyes, lips, to remain hydrate and refresh. It also can be used to apply to small wound, which help in speedy recovering. 


The most important step in skin care will be to do a deep cleaning of your face consistently.
If you are looking the Cleansing mousse, Wecomed introduces their Magic Charcoal Wash, which is also Paraben Free product.


You might hear a lot of good thing about Charcoal. How good it is when come to skin care?? 
Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne. 

Therefore, to include Charcoal as one of the ingredients in this cleansing wash will help you to do your cleaning efficiently. I did try to use this Magic Charcoal Wash after I get this product, and I like it a lot. The only thing I find annoying will be I need to shake the bottle before use, which not use to be. 

Recommend to use this Magic Wash about 2-3 times per week, together with your normal cleasing cream or gel. 



Another Magic product from Wecomed will be their makeup remover. One of the special thing about this makeup remover is you don't need to wash your face with water after removing your makeup. Again, this makeup remover also Paraben FREE.  



We did a small experiment about this makeup remover. We applied some eyeshadow on our hand, and using Wecomed Magic makeup remover to wipe away. 

No need to wash your face with water, just using a tissue or cotton pad to remove all the makeup and in the same time, clean your face. 
This makeup remover can be used to remove all type of makeup, including the lips and eyes.  



Wecomed have their own facial mask, which focuses on 4 aspects: Acne, Aging, Pigment and Senstivity. There are professional, friendly beauty advisors in Wecomed outlet, which can asist you in which type of product are suitable for you.

If you are interested in Wecomed skincare product, do drop by their new outlet in AEON Mall Tebrau city. There are testers for most of their product, which can help you in choosing the right product for your daily care of skin.
