Kg Melayu Johor Bahru


Look at the photo above. What do you feel? Hungry? YOU SHOULD BE

These are the best ais kacang (ABC or Patbingsu), mee rebus and satay I have ever tried. Seriously, these are the best. For Malaysian readers, fly to JB now, I said now and try these. For non-Malaysian, fly too or use cruise or ship or train, come to JB, Kg Melayu and look for these and eat it.

I do not fancy ABC that much and I think some of my friends realize this. I prefer Cendol (will update soon) instead of ABC. However this ABC changes everything, I wish someone can tell if I can get this around Kuala Lumpur. When I ordered ABC, I asked the waiter, “Is your ABC only has one type?” Waiter then asked me to be patient since she was busy took my father’s. The she said, “Yes, we only have one type”. I said, “ohh I thought you have regular and special because that table (next to my table) looks different.” We ordered two for 4 people (we just had lunch). When it arrived, I simply took out my phone, “Mom wait! I have to keep the picture.” Don’t worry, mom did it too. It tasted, YaAllah, Subhanallah, super delicious!

Then I tasted my mom’s mee rebus (noodle) and again I love it. I do not fancy mee rebus too, I can eat but I always had my mom’s instead of I order it for myself. It had this crunchy thingy that was delicious. Mom said it was fried shrimp but tiny and it looked like it was crushed. You have to try this mee rebus. No regret there. I gained some weight that day but what is done, is done. Food have to be tasted.

Don’t get me start with satay. For all food lover, satay is known as Malaysian or Indonesian most popular dish. Isn’t? But this satay, sorry to say the king of all famous satay you have heard or tried. Satay around KL, the famous one, nahhhhhh, cannot challenge this Kg Melayu, JB’s satay. The chicken meat was so tender and sweet and tasty. The meat was so soft and perfectly cooked. The sauce, the sauce, you can drink it as it was delicious.

Now, don’t get confuse when you arrived Kg Melayu JB, you will see two ABC sign but go for the most crowded one. The place where you have to wait to be seated. If you stand if front of mosque entrance, look and go to your right. The place is not fancy with chandelier, hundred ringgit of decoration and air conditioner but good food is good food.

The price is brilliant, that special ABC with ice cream and chocolate sauce is only RM3 and one satay costs, RM0.60 as for mee rebus, as if I am not mistaken, a plate costs RM4. (as in Oct 2015)

What are you waiting for, come and eat. By the way, I just wrote this post as my experience, I don’t have any share at all. Just spreading good food for happy tummy.

the bus ride

bus has been my main transportation to go to work and transit (ayah will pick me up here). there are so many things happen in the bus. funny, awkward, paranoid, everything and anything can happen.

so far it has been two weeks, i ride bus and it has been very interesting looking and observing others.

the cold one
the person who does not want to move at all. i hate this one. can you imagine being in the middle where people want to come in but the one next to you does not even want to budge at all. she just stand there and make this who-are-you-this-is-my-place face. she may not reading this but for one who does read, please be considerate. not just in bus, in anything you do. yes, we might be stranger but small gestures can change so much.

the safer zone (probably)
haha. basically, this is just my opinion. based on what i have go through for the past two weeks, i have a zone where i feel a little bit comfortable or safer. and yes, i can get quite paranoid in a bus. i think everyone want to at least touch my shoulder. this is the case where women can not be seen anywhere near me. i prefer to stand (i stand a lot) near either young Chinese guy, young Arab guy or young Indian guy who wears smart collar shirt or bring any laptop bag. why you ask me? thank you for asking. i do not know the exact reason but yeah i feel a bit safer there.

the road
i’d say it is really fun. yes, i am tired of standing up all the time and with sleepy eyes every morning and evening but the road is fun. i always love Ampang Road. i do not know why but by looking at those high and expensive residents area makes me feel so motivated to work harder. have you seen brunsfield embassyview?? to live there is probably just in my dream unless i can get salary more than 10000 per month. it is so beautiful, i love the mirrors, the building itslef is just so so amazing. i love houses and this road can be really interesting to me.

so there my bus ride story. it can be very smelly and all but that is the beauty of being grown up where you always want to do better and better for future.
