Day 1 | Johor's Danga Bay & Car Lift (Macam Jepun)

 
This was a 2009 trip, realised I have yet to blog on Johor, Malaysia. Was thinking of doing this before the Travelholic Blogger Trip to Singapore Universal Studio but abandon the idea as I was busy and lazy (more like lazy AND lazy).

Aside, would like to highlight that I do read all comments posted and I do read all your/other blogs just that I am too busy at least till end April plus the fact that I read/bloghop via iPhone hence it's abit difficult to comment and key in that tiny word varification. Sigh.... Once I have the time, I will reply and comment on every blog/comment I read.... you just wait for me yah... (revenge mode...ehehhehe). Please read this entry, every word as the first portion is super silly & funny & DARAT!

Back to Johor please!!! OK! My cousin called me one day and asked whether I'll be interested on a road trip with her 2 lovely daughters to Johor and Singapore. Knowing how travelholic I am, she knows I will jump on any stupid silly excuses to travel. Furthermore, the last time I explore Johor was when I was in Primary 3 or 4; I mean...what better chance/way to reminisce my childhood memory of Johor.

Off we start our journey to southern most state of Malaysia (the Peninsula Malaysia that is), it took us 4 hours or so to reach Johor Bahru, the capital of Johor. All went well, the journey was smooth... the highway was not as winding as going up north, chatty me kept the noise pollution on maximum API level, ahahhaha... but no one was complaining. It's either I entertain you with my chat or you... obviously I won hands-down. I might have exeggerated like crazy here, my cousin Tina helped alot with the pollution too. Hahhah.... There was 5 of us in this roadtrip, Tina, Fatin (my sis), Maira & Misha (Tina's lovely daughter) and of cause my cute self. Hhahahha...

We reached in there late afternoon, easily find the way to our hotel - JA Residence Johor Bahru located on Wong Ah Fook Road. This is where the surprise STARTS....

We arrived near the lobby, and the concierge asked us to park our car at the back, fine and well... Tina drove her car to the back of the building, there we were greeted by the car park attendant which directed us to drive into the building..... We did exactly that, BUT all we SAW was.... WALL!!!! WHERE IS THE PARKING BAY???? Serious!! It's not funny!???! What we saw was a HUGE LIFT!

The attendant ran and press the lift and asked us to drive when the door lift opens! We were like..."THE WHOLE CAR INTO THE LIFT!!! JUST LIKE IN JAPAN MOVIE!!!!!"

Giler DARAT!!!

In we go....

Fatin and myself decided to take pics of the whole experience so we stepped out.

Tina selected the floor... it functioned just like the human lift.

Just to show the lift size that fitted the car.

Arived at the dedicated floor, the door opens, Fatin holds the lift for us to dash out. 

Cepat LARIKSSS!

We laughed and laughed at the whole experience.... DARAT and FUN! Ini pun jadik mainan... cam bebudak. I bet not many Johorian knows this... RIGHT! Muahhahahah.... (perasan and evil laugh)

After freshen-up and all, we felt hungry and went hunting for food. We enquired from the hotel folks, and we told them we heard of Danga Bay... do they have eateries here? Yes, and they showed us the direction - off we go.

We then head to Danga Bay and what caught me us was the carnival (banyak nye surprise Johor nih), I screamed and said I wanted to ride and take pics..... CANTEK!!!!! Tina obediently turn in & park.... yeah! I bet she thinks I am childish! Hehheheh....I ran out (kid you not) and start jumping up & down asking them to speed up. Giler slow depa ni...

We saw rides upon rides upon rides upon rides..... yup!

Dumbo rides... 

Ferris wheel..... Colourful huh! 

Carousel... simply BEAUTIFUL!

My sis nak jugak naik... 

I don't know what this is called but we had fun playing this.... howling screaming.... 

Oh yah! We saw thing Rumah Kampung (village houses) that is so beautiful and also bump into folks having kenduri kahwin (wedding reception)... love the feel.... (memang boleh masuk).

OK! Somewhere in between we had our dinner obviously...
 Tak kan main jek tul dak... b ut tak da gambo makan as usual ler kan.

The 3 kiddos in the trip!
