Batu Layar, Johor.

We (me & family) started our journey around 2:30pm. The purpose was to explore the place that we never been before - BATU LAYAR.

After about an hour drive, we reached the Batu Layar Chalet (N1°26.741' E104°17.684').



It's just a basic type of Chalet, mean there's no facilities like restaurant, coffee house or leisure center. Advise to go with group, cos if only one or two families, that will be no activities at all. Of course, it's VERY suitable for LOVELY COUPLE ! :)

The rates of the chalet is economy :
* Air-con - RM95.00 per day.
* Non air-con - RM80.00 per day.

Punggai Indah Resort



And pass all the resort & chalet along the way to Sg. Rengit.......
All of them are.....basic chalet.

Suppose to having our dinner at Sg. Rengit one of the Seafood restaurant, but we reached there too early (6pm).......so we decided to take our dinner at K.Tinggi town.

Some pictures of Sg. Rengit.....




While we reached the Restaurant Yan Man (N1° 43.602' E103°53.984') at K.T. , almost 7:30pm.
The lady boss recommends us the famous dish of restaurant - Prawn Noodle.


Total 4 of the prawn was BIG!! We also order another vege & soup....total cost only RM31.00 includes drink. The prawn noodle itself cost RM22.00. Cheap!

After dinner, that's end our weekend trip.....

Johor River - Fishing Paradise (Second visit)

After lunch with the gang (Raymond, Stephen, Henry, John & Tommy), Tommy suggest for fish shopping. He intend to get some Kelapu fish and Henry said gonna get some crabs for seafood cooking......
The first visit, please clicks here.

We set our journey with Raymond, Henry, Tommy & me. After about 45 minutes drive, we reach the Johor River again. (N1°34.884' E103°58.702')
Before we go in to the jetty, there're plenty of people around there fishing.....cos they can catch a lot of fish due to the recent flood that escape out from the fish farm.

It's was cloudy.....sorry cos can't snap a good pictures......




Look at the RED shirt guy.......hmm.....trying to shoot a fish?!



As you can see, so many motors around......



The dam. If you notice that, there are fishes down there......



After went close to Johor River side, we notice that it change a lot since the last time we visited. There's a simple coffee shop around that area, and also some sign board.......




And the coffee shop I mention......


We walk pass this so call coffee shop, there's a small wooden bridge connect to the locals......


The local call "Gong-gong", one of shell type. Commonly see in local Seafood Restaurant.


We meet the one of the local there names "Zohari". He was in the middle of service or repairing his machine......friendly guy.



The front view of Mr Zohari house......




His neighbors........


After Mr Zohari shows us what he caught today.......


The gang begin to discuss for a boat rent.......

But just talk....only......because we are not preparing at all......

Then we decide to leave Mr Zohari and drive further in that we never explore before......
Just a short drive, we reach another fisherman house......(N1°35.025 E103°58.440)





They are selling crabs here, but not today......only during June of every year.

Along the journey back, we accidentally found this small police station.....should I call station?


The attraction was the Solar Panel. But after chat with officer there, they are not use the Solar charge for the electrical use.....that's only for the wireless radio communication to their HQ. They still depend on generator.

Closer look on the Solar Panel.


Along our way back to JB, we almost LOST in this palm oil estate!! Four GPS users in the car but none of us bring the GPS!!

We took around 1 hour round & round in the estate, and at last we manage to get out from it!
