Under the sea

They get the urge 'n' start to play

Pulau Ketam Steamboat @ Tun Aminah, Johor

14 September 2014

Sunday is a rest day for private sector. Mr. Ang brings LerLer to Seri Orkid  Recreation park for a jog. It is a nice park to work out all the fat and muscle. Kids are running around playing kite or giant bubble. The outdoor gym equipments are great too.

A variety of dishes.

After one hour work up, we met up Macherie Johor Bloggers for dinner. Pulau Ketam Steamboat restaurant is just 8 minutes drive from Seri Orkid Recreation Park. Steamboat is definitely a good choice of meal after work fat. It is low fat and low carbohydrate.  Most importantly, the seafood is freshly delivered from Pulau Ketam.

PS: I do not need to worry putting up weight after meal

How many dishes are there? ^^

I prefer the original broth. It is very clear and plain. After cook with many rounds with seafood, the soup is just marvelous.

Fish noodle (Small) RM6   (Big) RM12
Fish noodle is a must to order. It is made out of fresh sea bass. The noodle has very 'Q' texture. As the noodle is quite long. As you chew you can taste the "poik" "poik" texture in your mouth

Crab 100g RM7.50

Nothing is edited. The only word can describe this photo is "Fresh".  Mr. Ang eats quite a lot of it because of the tasty sweet favour. *Slurp

PS: We did our exercise before. Cholesterol problem? Just makan (eat) lah. hahaha

Seafood Platter for 3 persons RM52.50 

USA Kurobuta Pork Slice RM24
Shabu shabu the pork. The pork has no porky smell. Once it just cooked, you can taste the meat juice. This is my favourite dish too. In the end, we order 2 dishes of pork to satisfied our desire.

Fresh Lime Jelly RM4.50

This environment really reminds me the restaurant in Pulau Ketam. 

Steamboat meal is a great chill out place after exercise. You can choose to enjoy the meal outdoor or in air-conditioned hall too. LerLer strongly recommend this place for fresh seafood.

Pesta Kluang 2014 @ Kluang -Part 2

20 September 2014

 After a short "romantic" walk around the "mural street", we head off  to "lim teh". We followed their car to the "lim teh" place. It was an interesting journey from Taman Merdeka Kluang to the "lim teh "place. They brought us tour a bit of Kluang old town and new town. At one point, we though they were bring us home for homemade "kopi". Suddenly, they make a turn and park in front of Yean Kee Beef Noodle shop. 

It was quite hard to explain the thrill of following their car.  So, remember to meet the local and eat with the local. ^^

The story of Yean Kee can be found in Johor Kaki and Peggy Loh blog. 

The volunteers mentioned that" when you come to Kluang, enjoy the food with story. The story will make the food more delicious." Indeed, the shop with story were full with diners.

Beef noodle RM5.50
The lady boss mentioned a few time that their dry beef noodle is more famous. However, we just feel like drinking some soup on this chilly day.

We shared some life experience and study path in this nice shop. LerLer wish them all the best in their coming examination. After the meal, we give them a lift back to back lane of Jalan Dato Teoh Siew Khor.

PS: Wish to know more this event behind scene? check out Ice Orange Juice Blog Only available in Chinese version.

Finally, the rain stop. The light was on. The back lane of Jalan Dato Teoh Siew Khor went alive. Children and adults were having fun with bubbles. We joined in the crowd too. For more photos, please check it out HERE.

Rain filled up the fountain in Taman Merdeka. Some of the visitors still brought some water to fill up. Everyone wish to see this fountain back to its glorious time again.

Isn't this bus stop stand cute? Good Bye Kluang! We will be back next time.

Wish to learn more on Kluang? remember to get this little booklets from some shops in Kluang.

Pesta Kluang 2014 @ Kluang - Part 1

20 September 2014

The happy crowd are having fun at the back lane of Jalan Dato Teoh Siew Khor, Kluang

Kluang Festival has been circulating my Facebok page. LerLer enjoy shooting mural and meet the local. Without any hesitation, LerLer registered for their event, "A community Oral History - Kluang Old Town" event. LerLer told this news to Mr. Ang after I registered. Mr. Ang went "huh???". Hahah That is me. Always full of surprises.

We departed to Kluang around 2.00pm. The whole driving journey was accompanied by heavy rain. Think positively, it was quite romantic to enjoy the gray sky from the car. Think logically, it was quite dangerous as the visibility is quite low. However, the weather did not damper our mood to attend this festival.

When reach Kluang town, we stop by petrol station for fill up. Many roads were flooded. While, filling up, a police car drove by to control the traffic. The friendly staff told us that just a few minutes ago, someone slipped into the flood. Ambulance was here to save the guy. This news shocked us. Hopefully, there will be some solutions for the flood problem.

 Around 4.00pm, we reach Taman Merdeka, Kluang. No one was there. I was quite worried that the event was canceled. Luckily, after 20 minutes of wait, a few volunteers with the  specially designed T-shirt appeared. It is like batmen appear out of dark. Hahah

 Our narrator, Ms. Wong

After waiting for 10 minutes, other participants were here too. There were 4 undergraduates from University Malaya, 2 local Kluang residents, 2 of us from Johor Bahru  and around 7 tour guides or volunteers. 

The old building was built in 1955. It still stand tall in the silent corner.

Tong Ah Company is renowned Chinese traditional snack maker in Kluang of which "Tau Sah Piah"- in sweet and salty flavor - is the signature and best selling biscuit.

 Old building with spiral staircase. This kind of architecture was built  around 1950.

The narrator was explaining some traditional herb. The volunteers pulled up some small containers to let us smell some herb. Most of the herb are used in our meal. 

Mr. Chia Hang Kiang, the current heir of Tong Ah Company. He is the third generation of this traditional biscuit business. His grandfather started the business at Taman Merdeka. Since the end of 1970s, he have moved the confectionery shop to Jalan Tiong Hwa.

 Mr. Chia is a Coca-Cola collector too.

 Next, we met up with Million Bata Shoes Store's owner, Mr. Yap. He was happily discussing some old stories with Mr. Goh. It was quite interesting to hear them speaking Mandarin in "Kluang Stype." They were truly "Oppa Kluang Style" .

The volunteers were having fun too.

The detail of the Kluang story can be found in this little booklet.

After the 2 hours of  "Community Oral History- Kluang Old Town" tour, we invited the volunteers to "lim teh" (drink tea).

Have you try "snake" drive around Kluang to "lim teh"?
