Awesome surau in Johor Bahru

I was amazed to see the surau. From the moment I saw it, entering the toilet, and prayed inside it, the whole place is amazingly beautiful. Subhanallah.

They have an islamic kindergarten with english medium teachers.



They have state-of-the-art ablution area


They have beautiful and comfortable prayer hall


They have informative information board with neat handwriting.  Including an open invitation to a kenduri of a bookshop owner. What a generous invitation! Subhanallah.


They have an herb garden, a small library, air conditioned classroom, canteen, kitchen,  office and a caring community.

This is not an individual act but the whole community. This surau is situated in Jalan Tebrau and managed by professional retirees.

I am very proud with the small surau that has a big role on the community. May Allah protect the surau and bless the people who had contributed for it.


Kluang Rail Coffee

Coffeholic, caffein lovers, this is a must-go place.

One fine Sunday morning, me and hubby made a trip to Kluang, just to have a brunch at Kluang rail coffee.

I noticed a new building painted brown, labelled ‘Kluang Railway Coffee’, however, my husband insisted to go to the place where the magic of the famous coffee begins. Kluang railway station, located near end of Jalan Omar. Continue reading

Hiatus blogging

Ok I swear that I’ve been busy lately and I have abandoned my blog. So here’s what happened.

Cis…terkena den~

I subscribe to trip advisor because I want to know great places to be visited. But today, I saw this in my inbox:

I am curious to know, because there’s a good and bad review. So I follow the breadcrumbs and found this:

Ahahaha~ Terkena den. I hope today is a good day for you.

Sedap baa…

  • Semalam kami meronda pasar malam di Sabah. Husband cari seluar, aku pula belikan anak saudara gelang mutiara. Comel sangat. Sesuai untuk baby. RM3 saja. Omar jumpa set jewellery untuk mak dia. Rantai labuh, bracelet, kerongsang kecil dan besar, cincin, semuanya RM45. Siap bagi free gift (kerongsang) lagi. Kedai makcik tu dekat area public toilet. Sebelah la. Bukan dekat sangat. Tak berbau pun. Memang best la makcik tu. Yang lain semua takmau turun dari RM55. Yang ni dia siap bagi pilihan mix and match lagi. Bagus betul. Mudahan murah rezeki dia lepas ni. Continue reading


We decided to stay at Tune Hotel for a night and here’s my review.This might help you to decide whether to stay or not.

  • Bathroom: Not that spacious but not that crammed. There’s a power shower with central heat. You have to be bit clever when controlling the heat because at first, the water take some time to be heated. After you stay at the same lever for couple of minutes, you’re going to find the water is extremely hot. So,  you have to play with the shower lever in order to get the ideal water temperature.
  • Addon:  Tune hotels works like Air Asia flight. In order to have extra perks, you need to pay a little bit of this and that. So we decided to take 12 hours air-condition, wifi and towel facilities. You have to add more money to your bill in order to have those. They should have come with complete package because we were tired travellers and we walk in, just to check  in like normal but tiba-tiba kena berbincang  which addon to take or to opt out. Haih. Ok. The towel package comes with conditioning shampoo, shower gel and a small bar of soap. The towel has deposit value of RM5. You will get back your RM5 back when you return the towel when you’re checking out from the hotel. Smart kan. Tak payah diaorang nak kutip lagi towel. Boleh terus masuk bilik laundry. Allright, we shouldn’t have bought the air condition addon because we arrived late in the evening and malam memang tidur tak pakai air-cond. Mistake. There’s a fan in the room. A big KDK fan. Air-cond is too much for a very small room. There’s another addon that I didn’t take, which is the TV. We’re on holiday so we don’t spend much time looking at the TV. I feel lucky we didn’t choose TV addon because it’s only a small TV. The size is same as my brother in law’s computer monitor. It’s Aquos but it’s small. You know. And the TV position is not that apt as well. Kalau baring kat katil tu nampak kaki lebih daripada TV. Get it?
  • Space: The bed is queen size. Other than that, the space is just big enough to walk to your bed. Even nak solat pun my husband kena keluar bilik. Cari other place because no one can pray in this tiny room. No space at all. They play with mirrors to make the room looks larger. They don’t even have wardrobe. They just put a small stainless-steel bar cloth hanger. No wardrobe.
  • I think that’s basically it. Nothing much. Very basic. If you want to budget, this is the place but make sure you book your room earlier. Like my case, we had to fork out extra because we did walk-in and to be honest, walk-in is never cheaper than online. If we were to stay at the same place, I’d opt out the air-cond (because I can’t stand the extreme dryness of my skin+selsema) and I’d bring extra stuff.
  • I’m quite surprised because I’m comparing this hotel with Seri Malaysia (SM). SM has almost everything that you need and it makes you feel like home. Got water jug, TV, 2 towels, toilet basics, a coffee table and 2 chairs, spacious room, wardrobe, sejadah, and so forth. And I paid RM100 only. But for TuneHotel, I paid RM100++ but I get less. So, experience is a priceless lesson. Anyways, travel safe, travel wise. Have fun and carpe diem.
