Johor Bahru is the capital city of Johor in southern Malaysia, located north of Singapore. Johor Bahru is the southernmost city on the Asia mainland. The Johor Bahru City has a population of 1,334,188 people with area of 185 kilometres square.

It is situated on the Straits of Johor (also known as the Straits of Tebrau), which separate Malaysia and Singapore but linked by the 1.05 km causeway built in 1923. The Johor-Singapore Causeway links the city to Singapore with a six-lane road and a railway line. The Malaysia-Singapore Second Link bridge, located west of the metropolitan area, was constructed in 1997 to alleviate congestion on the Causeway.



Today’s Photograph : Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP)

Port Tanjung Pelepas MalaysiaPTP’s berths are set in 15-19 meters of naturally deep waters with a wide approach channel of Malacca and Johor Straits. A turning basin 600 meters wide allows the easy maneuvering of even the largest container vessels. PTP has all the advantages to ensure smooth and fast berthing for vessels.

Positioned just 45 minutes from the crossroads of the world’s busiest shipping lanes (Malacca Straits) and located at the southern tip of Peninsular Malaysia, PTP is ideal for both regional and global transshipment and distribution activities.

I and family having dinner at a nearby seafood restaurant, and you would not miss this spectacular view of the Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) which located at the southernmost of Penisular Malaysia and mainland Asia.


Today’s Photograph : Biscuit Tiny Star

When I visited the state of Johor in Malaysia not long ago, I was in small town called Serkat.   As I am so thirsty, I want to buy a few bottle of soft drinks, I stumble to see the favourite biscuit when I was a small kid.  Nostalgia of this tiny biscuits continues to intrude in my mind.


Today’s Photograph : Kueh Karas

Kueh Karas is one of many traditional Malay cookies. I discovered Kueh karas when I visited state of Johor not long ago. These traditional cookies are now being commercialised, so it is very easy to be obtained and sold in many places.

Kueh Karas made from basic ingredients of rice flour, sugar and a little salt, deep fried in palm oil.
It is nice and crunchy.
