Finally here’s my 4 days 3 nights JB trip post in my blog. It’s been more than a month and I did edit all the photos and gonna start blogging about this trip. Hope you guys like this short trip of us three girls traveling to JB. There will be a lot of photos to browse through because we are all basically planning our BFF outfit and shooting a lot of photos altogether.

We traveling from 8am till 12-1pm reaching Johor Bahru.  Our first stop is to go to Foon Yew Laksa to have the laksa that Carinn introduce to us. But when KL Selangor people try and eat it, it’s basically like curry laksa more than the normal laksa that we eat at KL Selangor. 

But what I really like is that you can choose so many dishes like fish ball, seafood, veggies add to your laksa and also can choose your own noodles too. The price is not too expensive but you can enjoy different varieties of dishes and noodles that you like. I will really recommend coming back here again ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…

Our next location is we start our first cafe hopping at this Space Cafe. If you ask us how we pick our cafe choices is via Google form where we voted the cafes that we want to visit and the one with the highest vote win ๐Ÿ˜‚ I really love this cafe because of its minimalist design and the time we went is quite quiet where we get to enjoy some coffee and quiet time together.

By the time we wanted to leave the cafe, their crowds start visiting the cafe. We manage to ask help from their waitress to help us take these group photos that turn to be our favorite group photos of the day. Did you guys manage to see the difference between the two group photos above ๐Ÿ˜‚ I find it too funny not to share it on my blog.

Next, we head to our second Cafe Hopping Cafe at Dusk by Mok Mok Cafe. We only ordered one bowl of aรงaรญ bowl and share it among the four of us. This cafe comes in very nice Balinese vibes which we feel quite relaxed and have some fun photoshoot in this cafe because literally all of the corners are very photo-worthy and even their main door entrance ๐Ÿ˜‚

Here’s their main entrance decor which is very nice. We also took some group photos in front of the door too.

For our dinner place is at this Thai Food Restaurant - Kampung Carabao. The whole exterior and interior restaurant is very nice with all the lights and all Thai decor around the restaurant. I really enjoy the vibes here for our dinner place.

All of the foods that we ordered, were super yummy and full!

When we are here this place is full of people but we manage to get a seat that is seated on the floor. All the dishes we order are so nice but not sure why that day the dishes served are the way so slow. They serve two dishes at once and the rest of the dishes took another 30 - 40 mins to serve. We spend 1-2 hours waiting for all the dishes to serve finish. But to be honest all the dishes we order are amazing!

For our first night hotel, we book this Hako Hotel located at Austin Height where all the hot pick areas are located. The Loudspeaker is literally just located down the hotel. But we were too tired to go for sing k. ๐Ÿ˜‚

I really love the design of the interior design of the lobby. Everything comes in a minimalist design with everything black, white, and grey.

Our hotel room for the night ๐Ÿ˜ The hotel bed is really fluffy and comfortable to sleep on. Although the room is small they have all the hotel amenities that we need. Too bad we only stay one night here and gonna head to Desaru the next day.

Day 1

Travel from KL to JB > Lunch at Foon Yew Laksa > Space Cafe > Dusk by Mok Mok > Dinner at Kampung Carabao > Check in to Hako Hotel Taman Mount Austin

The next day we check out and drop by at Kulai for Bakuteh. Group selfie while waiting for the food.

Everything is so good! How can we not gain weight if we keep eating like this ๐Ÿ˜‚

Our next destination is Yard n Co. which is the cafe near to the sea. When we are here, we need to register on the spot and wait for our number to reach us. You cannot register online but only can register on the spot. We waited for around 20 - 30 minutes and finally got a spot inside the cafe. We have to order and pay at the counter. In the end, the desserts were here first instead of our main meal.

The two main dishes that we all share among us. The satay chicken is the best and we finish it quickly since we are hungry. The spaghetti is cooked very well too except the clams shell is scattered around the spaghetti which makes it hard to enjoy it ๐Ÿ˜‚

Nobody helps us take group photos and hence we took our own group selfie mirror photo.

At first, I suppose to wear blue checker's but since the cutting is way too small and tight. I ended up choosing these pastel purple checkers and match with Nicole which is another shade of purple. The cafe is quite packed and does not have a lot of space to take any proper group photos. But some of the corners in the cafe are really pretty and even though we only took half body shots the photo turned out nice also.

The famous spot where you can take photos is the cafe with the sea view as the background.

Next, we went to The Secret Attraction which is around a 5-10 minutes drive from the Yard and Co. This place is quite hidden but when we are here there are also a group of people who come here for photo shooting as well. We all wearing sneakers to this place because we need to climb down the rocky pathway to go down to this secret attraction.

The time we went is still not high tide but the sun is still torching high up. Took our group photo with a tripod that Carinn bring along. Love this fit of ours for our Day 2 Itinerary.

After checking in to Tunamaya Hotel, we go to a nearby hotel to Westin Hotel to take photos and enjoy some nice breeze of sea wind. I did not go down to the beach or sea area, mainly because doesn't feel like want to play with water when I'm at JB ๐Ÿ˜‚

A quick group photo was taken by some stranger and on the right is this really funny GIF that I created with the funny photos that Nicole took.

For our dinner, we are lazy and tired to travel instead we just back to the hotel and order room service. Basically, we just drink and play games the whole night in our hotel room. I didn't take many photos of the hotel because we all didn't want to recommend this hotel due to the hotel is old and does not maintain well in all aspects.

I have a really major hangover because of the soju and gin drink that I mix and I drink because I lose the game ๐Ÿ˜… I vomited a lot the day next morning until my stomach did not feel very well. I only have a light breakfast with fruits and porridge from the hotel.

Day 2

Travel from JB to Desaru > Stop by Breakfast at Kiang Kee Bak Kut Teh > Lunch at Yard & Co. > Sungai Rengit Secret Attraction Punch > Check in Hotel > The Westin Desaru Coast Resort > Back to Tunamaya Hotel

After breakfast in the hotel, we head back to JB again. Our first cafe hopping is to another cafe that wins from our vote, Kaffeinted Fish Cafe. I really like the whole minimalist design of the cafe, although I feel that there's so much in this space. A place to order, enjoy the food, and a wedding hall at the back, even the decor around the cafe also comes in various themes. Hence we also spend a lot of time here taking ootd shots.

Our lunch of the day. They only serve sandwiches here, so we just order some simple sandwiches to fill up our stomachs. Since I have a really bad hangover, is good to have something simple. I order the filling with prawns and we order another is ham and egg fillings.

Group selfie again!

I really love the cafe area which is quite chill and relaxed. I'm wearing my favorite YK2 dress from FEMME LUXE. For more info, you can click here to read more.

Love to take random photos whenever I see the mirror.

We didn't take any proper group photos in this first cafe. But a group selfie with the mirror is a must!

For our next destination, we visit this pretty government building at Kota Iskandar. We saw a lot of influencers manage to go inside and took some nice photos inside the building. But when we are here, the officer does not let us go in, although I am not sure what the reason is or is it because they thought we are not Malaysian. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Because when we keep taking photos outside, a few of the officers come out from work, one wanted to take a photo with us another one say welcome to Malaysia to us. This is quite funny which we are actually from Malaysia.

Some of the group photos we took that I really like. Our theme for this place is planning to wear a maxi dress due to this is a government building where we need to wear a proper outfit. We are all in this floral colorful print of our maxi dress. When we plan for all our BFF outfits is really not easy because there are too many choices to pick and choose from. But in the end, each of the outfits we plan turns out quite nice and pretty.

The whole area of this Kota Iskandar is very big and really nice to photos too. Too bad we are unable to go in and see more of the building inside. Also, we are blessed with really nice weather that day. Although when we arrived here, the weather is very gloomy where we thought it will be raining but turns out the weather is very good for the rest of the day.

After that, we are checked in to the third hotel of our trip, which is The Bubble Room - Manhattan Mount Austin. This is the most fun and cute hotel that we get to stay at during our JB trip. They have this super cute slide in the stay itself and we really enjoy ourselves by playing on the slide itself haha. I didn't even take any photos during this stay but we have a lot of videos. ๐Ÿ˜

They also have another small room inside the stay where we all put all our luggage inside. We sleep in the outside area where they have 2 queen size beds for 4 pax of us. The toilet is pretty normal for normal wash up and shower.

Our dinner place at Baretto by The Bierhaus. This restaurant locates in a quite hot place where there are a lot of restaurants and bars around. It is also a very Instagrammable place where you can take photos too. We also will visit this area again on the next day so I will share more photos later in this post

All the food we have ordered is so good! I feel that my stomach is very blessed by Carinn's intro in this whole JB trip because of all the good food that we had tried. The black squid ink spaghetti is a must-try!

After having a really nice dinner, we are back to our hotel room and took some lounge outfit shots with the bubble area. It is super fun and cozy to have all the plushies and cute bubbles to play with. ๐Ÿ’—

Don't forget also our annual swaggers group photos too. ๐Ÿ˜

Day 3

Tunamaya Hotel Check-Out > Back to JB > Lunch at Fish Cafe > Kota Iskandar Government Building > Check in to Airbnb MANHATTAN at Austin Heights > Dinner at Baretto by The Bierhaus > Back to Hotel

On our last day here at JB, we decide to have our last cafe hopping at Soil JB. I have been to this area when I'm here at JB last time. But this cafe is newly open but it has really delicious and amazing pastries to try. I am really fond of their croissant which is so crunchy and the taste is just the perfect taste to enjoy with! We all even take away back to KL because it is just too good!

Signature photo with the pastries and drinks.

This cafe surrounding is very nice to take OOTD photos too. A lot of greenery surrounds the cafe, regardless it is plants or vines that grow on the wall. I like that the cafe comes in old old vibes from the exterior, but inside the cafe is very modern cafe decor.

This corner with the cafe house as background also was quite stood out and nice to take photos.

Our last location is at Eco Palladium which is at the dinner place we went to on day 3. Like I mentioned previously here you can take a lot of ootd photos because the whole area is very spacious and does not have a lot of crowds. You can easily spend a few hours here with friends, just doing cafe hopping and enjoying photo taking with your friends. The last ootd theme is vintage, and I really like how all of us dress so differently according to the theme. 

I will do a separate post with this vintage outfit that I have worn and matched. I really like this fit although the print of the dress doesn't up to my liking the entire matching with the stockings and hat really makes this outfit looks more complete.

Also, my last couple of photos are with Shin May at our last location stop at JB.

Day 4

Airbnb Check Out > Breakfast at Soil JB > Eco Palladium > Lunch at Arashi > Back to KL

Our last meal is Arashi which is only available at Johor Bahru. The only branch in Kuala Lumpur has closed down due to the pandemic and I only can try it when in JB. But the food that I remember is not as tasty as before but no regrets to have it as our last meal here at JB!

To be honest this trip is really fulfilling and it's been a while since I have a proper trip with just girlfriends. Sadly Lydia wasn't able to join us but there will be more chance coming soon. With the pandemic still around, I'm really glad this trip is a success and we were all healthy and safe! Hope you guys like our JB trip Itinerary. Thanks, Carinn who introduced us to all the nice places to go in JB, Shin May for planning out the cafes to visit, Nicole for the transport from KL >< JB, and all the high kpop performance after drinking ๐Ÿ˜‚
