Johor Road Trip 柔佛一路走 - Aug 2014






Its was closed friend wedding dinner in Johor Bahru back in end Aug 2014, and nothing will stop me from attending despite i need to travel alone by myself.  

On 30 Aug'14 Saturday morning/ noon, where i had my lunch and departed for Johor wedding dinner which start at 7:30pm.
 
JAM !!! Noticed the new model of Peugoet 2008 on the road ! Looks nice. 



The jam, somehow its make me worry whether i will be able to reach Johor on time or not despite i have 6 hours of traveling time! 

More jammmm!!! 

Somehow i reached at Johor Bahru just in time ! Opposite side is Singapore! 

A restaurant at Danga Bay. 
Congratulation to my friend on newly wed. 

 Wonderful sunset overseeing Singapore from Danga Bay !

To be honest, i feel like "jakun" felt like village boy entering to big city despite i been living in KL so many years. 
Johor Bahru is the real big city with such big scale on-going property development! 

Most of the units are snapped by Singaporeans as the sale agent said they likes to buy top floor as it oversee the Singapore! 
To Singaporeans, they are paying peanut to owns a super luxury condominium here and at the same time able to view Singapore land! 

To my dis-believe, the sale agent is foreigner who can speak good mandarin, cantonese and english as well. Guess the project is too huge too big to handle by local, thus import foreigners to handle sales and marketing ! Eye-opener !  
KL vs JB 
Small boy vs Big boy.

 Locals cant afford to buy one unit, but still can enjoys what's offering here! 

Quite happening at night time at Danga Bay ! 

Its mark end of my first day 30 Aug 2014 in Johor Bahru. Tired to max, went back to hotel and went into sleep by 11:00pm. I recall my first trip visit to JB was about 8 years ago, via flight, and subsequent by car. A lot of changes! Really dam lot of changes and development !

The next day morning, 31 Aug 2014, Happy Merdeka ! My breakfast started with Wan Tan Mee @ Kulai. Initially was looking for famous beef noodle, somehow foursquare location map bring me to no where. Cant spot the stall / shop at roadside.

Too hungry to continue search for my planned beef noodle, instead settled with Wan Tan Mee stall which i found nearby at roadside! The wan tan mee which is not recommended, tasteless, dis-satisfaction but my hungry is settled, i felt now its time for me looks around for beef noodle and opened my FourSquare again and a search on google!  

 Thank god! I found the beef noodle that everyone in Kulai mentioning!!!
Its live up to my expectation and its really good ! FULL HOUSE on early morning, yet Kulai town looks like very quite. 
4:30am start selling !!!??? 

 I will be back again!!! 

 Foursquare location map brought to until here only never bring me entering the small street leading to beef noodle stall / shop ! This is the landmark to remember ! 

 A small lorong look quite yet inside is really happening !!! The very crowded famous Beef noodle !!!
 Opposite the Fujiflim is this shop ! 
Okay, i'm fully satisfied with the foods ! Next stop --> Kluang ! 

Kluang Railway Station, the name that i always hear and see in KL but never have the chance to visit the original Kluang Railway Station ! It's about 81KM away from Kulai, 1 hour 2 mins journey as calculated by Google Map. 

I cant believe, Kluang Railway Station is CLOSED on Merdeka day, SUNDAY ! Oh My God ! 

 Y U CLOSE ! i'm in shock and clueless where to next to replace Kluang Railway Station ! 
Argh...
 Driving. Keep driving and thinking where to. Then i recalled my OnePlus forum MIS friend did mentioned about his aunty's awesome curry laksa somewhere at old wet market in Kluang !

 Opened up Foursquare and i found this curry laksa at Gerai Makan Botak 摩达伽哩面!

 First time tasting Johor Curry laksa. Something new to me. Cant really compare apple with apple on curry laksa i used to have in KL, Petaling Street.
 The Curry Laksa stall was packed and i think i waited for more than 20 minutes for my turn! Not bad. But i still prefer KL's one, perhaps i used with it already.

Kluang stop settled with Curry Laksa, at least i'm not leaving with empty stomach ! kekeke...
Next Stop is Yong Peng fish ball noodle ---> 45 KM away !

 The so called handmade fish ball noodle ! 

 At Yong Peng, its not hard to spot the Fish Ball Noodle that recommended by friend as its just beside the Caltex petrol station, and its just beside the main road ! Easy to spot.


Somehow, I dont feel anything special about the fish ball. Suddenly i recalled the Raja Uda Fish ball noodle kuey Teow soup that happens to be my relative! It's been long long time i never go visit and have a bowl of fish ball noodle! Their fishball also handmade! Argh... 
 Water bottle as tower in Yong Peng new village ! 

Next, my last stop - Tangkak 东甲, 77 KM away ! 
Before this, i did my homework, there's many stalls selling beef noodle until i did not really write down specific beef noodle to try ! 
When reaching Tangkak, i opened my Foursquare again, and choose one beef noodle that popular ! 

FULL HOUSE crowded beef noodle shop !!!! 

 Morning had Kulai Beef Noodle, and now afternoon another round of beef noodle at Tangkak ! 
Now Kulai Vs Tangkak beef noodles both are equally good !!! 


Beef noodle @ Tangka mark the ending of my food journey in Johor ! My next stop is KL, home. 
Despite i'm doing it alone, i enjoys it. 

Coming Friday, 14 Nov 2014, i will begins another of Johor Road Trip again! 
Beside Kluang Railway Station, i'm now thinking exploring another food path along my road trip ! 

Pontian Wan Tan Mee? 
Explore food in Johor Bahru town? 

Friday - KL - Desaru 
Can detour to many places, as long as i reach Desaru by 5pm? 
Saturday - Century Ride 160km, evening is the time slot available to explore foods beside rest. 
Sunday - The road trip back KL begins!

Johor Master Century Ride, I'm kambing !!!

Cycling - Running - Cycling - Week 42, 25-26 Oct 2014

Cycling - Running - Cycling - Week 42, 20-26 Oct 2014.

Hello, hello, and hello again. I have been missing in action updating my training, my motivation source to keep me going and going further more.

This month, ran SCKLM and two months ago ran Kuching Marathon, its was running that dominate my training, my weekend, and left aside my beloved roadbike GIANT aside. Since the completion of SCKLM, i'm trying to get back to cycling.

Preparing this that, sini sana, i took some time to get back into cycling! On 22 Oct, its public holiday, I decided to cycle alone, too afraid to joins others as my cycling confidence were not with me. Its was from HOA - Genting Sempah - Bukit Tinggi - Genting Sempah - HOA.

Cycling uphills, im getting back the feel slowly. The cycling excitement are back when i'm decent downhills from Genting Sempah to HOA !!! WooHoo !!!  




As the photo above, on 12 Oct 2014, I ran 42.195KM SCKLM, and PolarPersonalTrainer says i'm ready to train more on the next day which showing green labels for the next whole week.... Until i had my cycling session 22 Oct, its shows RED, - training not recommended.

Hmmm... why? Are cycling more intense than running? Or i have not run hard enough for Polar to grant me red label?

Over the weekend, i have decided to cycle Saturday and Sunday, and in between, there's Puma Night Run 10KM which i think i can handle, i can manage, since its just 10KM.

Initial plan was to join a new Facebook group ride that meet my intention without think twice that hit 3-digits distance. Whose know at the meeting point, i met with friends, who completed their Ironman race recently. Argh... Since they also doing 3-digits distance, i decided to abandon my initial plan and joins my friends! Great feel can ride with Ironman, kan...! hehe...  


First time riding with the group. Lucky, i can manage to catch up with them. Riding to Kuala Selangor were hot and some head wind. 


Never thought the meeting are so near to famous Meng Kee Char siew !!! We ending our ride with late lunch at Meng Kee Char Siew ! Bruppppp.... sort of recharged. Back home, got the bike clean up, shower and nap! 

Nap from 3pm until 5pm plus... wake up by the sound of thunder! KL is raining!!! Was wondering how's my Puma Night later at Setia Alam, will it be cancel due to thunderstorm? Ate something before leaving house toward Setia Alam. 


Its was hot, humid weather at Setia Alam !!! The ground were dry! The race started at 7:30am, i missed short distance races! The excitement the adrenaline rush to run faster in 10KM race! Its never hit my thought that night run were different kind of situation, soon after i ran about 2-3km, i sweat like mad... its was so hot !!! I know my body, and i start to run walk run walk as I cant breath / cant push to limit in such hot humid situation. 

Somehow, somehow, i managed to hit sub60 timing !!! WooHoo !!!

On my way back home, passby this usual place that serve bitter gourd mee soup, and its suddenly hit my thought. I need that for reload for tomorrow ride with my usual P2K group ride! 

Its suppose to be slow slow ride but when we cyclist jump on bike, whatever 手拉手ride promise no longer valid. Riding in big peloton group, its always feel good to ride behind peloton cruising 35 to 40km/hr. When there's holes, front riders will give hand signal, or if there's bigger hole, we shout to warn others. 

We stopped at Batu Arang for refills. 

 Half way, or rather almost back to PJ, we had coconut water! The weather were so hot !
 


Weekend rides managed to hit 200KM in total plus 10KM running as bonus! What's a crazy insane weekend !
