Chinese New Year at Johor Bahru (JB) Malaysia

I was impressed by the decorations at City Square JB. Especially the huge zodiac installation with paper cutting illustrations of the animals. I find the traditional paper cutting depictions the most pretty. I’m sure many Singaporeans come here to buy Chinese New Year treats as most of the cars I saw on the road had Singapore plates (although I believe there are some restrictions are many items in Malaysia are subsidized for their citizens). And how could we leave JB without stopping at our favourite coffee shops with the nicest folks running the stalls. They are all so polite and welcoming that it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling and the setting here brings you back to a simpler sweeter time.

    The mall doesn’t look as busy as those in Singapore. The noodles look so yummy!!!! You didn’t mention where the open-kitchen street restaurant was. I’ve heard that things are cheaper in JB, is that true? Great photos, as usual! 🙂

      food is less than half the price. I still can’t really find a street name. But any coffeeshop in JB is good. Just that you need to be a bit more careful. Not as safe as Singapore where you can walk around safely at night.
