Melaka Weekend — Sand Dunes

If you’re the adventurous sort, and you like to go to places that are not just off-road, but also off-map, then you have to check out the Melaka Sand Dunes. It’s not a natural feature. The internet tells us that it was part of a land reclamation project that was never completed. Maybe the construction […]

Melaka Weekend — Melaka Town

Following our visit to Wooden Box cafe at Batu Pahat, we continued our drive up north. We passed by Muar but didn’t stop as we had already spent a lot of time at Segenting earlier in the day and were behind schedule by about 2 hours. Not that our schedule was particularly important; it was […]

Melaka Weekend — Segengting

Most people, when they go to Batu Pahat, they go only to Batu Pahat town. Actually, when most people travel, they go only to the places that other people recommend them, places that most other people go to. When we travel, we like to go to new places, see things we have never seen before. […]

He has tried to reuse other people’s discarded underwear before. Some people find that disgusting, but the truth is, once you wash it thoroughly and soak it […]

Malaysia Bus Trip – Batu Pahat

We arrived by bus from Pontian at a roadside. Batu Pahat has a bus station, but apparently there’s no service between Pontian and Batu Pahat. We had to take a Mayang Sari service that goes to Muar and drop us off as it passed through Batu Pahat. Unfortunately that also means there’s no direct way […]

Malaysia Bus Trip – Pontian

There are at least 2 ways to Pontian by bus from Singapore. The first way is to cross the Woodlands Causeway by any number of buses. We found that the best way is to take SBS Transit 170X from Kranji MRT to Larkin, followed by Maju 96 (or one other bus we can’t remember now) […]
