FAMILY OUTING : MUAR/BATU PAHAT


Muar famous bridge welcoming us ......

The famous mee bangdung muar (it's actually inside a kopitiam)


Muar
and Batu Pahat are 2 of the famous town in Johor apart from Johor Baharu and that was our school break trip last few weeks. We're attending one of my friends wedding and I've decided to take my family for a one night stay in Batu Pahat.

Pak Abu ...the man himself and always on top of everything

MEE BANDUNG MUAR SPECIAL (RM 3.50)


The first stop is at the famous mee bandung muar hotspot Mee Pak Abu in the middle of Jalan Abdullah in the heart of Muar Town. I've been googling the info on the famous mee bandung muar and Mee Pak Abu was simply the favourite pick. I've tasted Mee Bandung before but the Muar version is totally different. It's sweet and rich in flavours especially dried shrimp....yummmmy

Some of the more famous visitors ...

We proceed our journey to Batu Pahat and I've selected Hotel Katerina ( no relations to the Hurricane!!!) and the hotel was above average....with a good discount (government rate) it was a pleasant stay. The initial plan was to try the famous Nasi Beriyani Power at Taman Soga but it was closed. So we proceed to the newly open BP Walk (an effort to emulate the famous Bintang Walk). Not bad and the food was fantastic ...I had 'Mee Bungkus' and it was sedap....

The final day was Wedding Ceremony at UTHM and since my friend is the daughter of a senior professor in UTHM the ceremony was big complete with SILAT (local martial art) and traditional dance. Not to forget the Nasi Beriyani Mat Shah (the caterer for the event). The dessert was the popular HALIM CENDOL.
