LAUNCHING OF DESA STAY JOHOR BAHRU


DESASTAY JOHOR
Being a traveller myself, I normally would always plan my trips. Very importantly is planning. Whether it's backpacking, budget travelling or a more expensive one. I have always like 'HomeStay' concept, and the furthest I have gone to is Negeri Sembilan. Today we will be going to Johor Bahru with the invitation from the STATE OF JOHOR and TOURISM JOHOR 
MATIC PARKING (IN THE WEE MORNING)
Our journey begins from MATIC.... yawning as didn't sleep well the night before. 
Excited? Yes. 
Worried? Yes. Traffic jem (me forgot it was a Saturday) plus had to leave my son behind

Took a grabcar and arrived at MATIC about 6.45am... dark, quiet, dark, nobody... hahaha just realised I drop down at the wrong side, over at the Saloma Bistro entry. For sure nobody... hahaha quickly went to the parking side. By 7.00am, already had a few other bloggers getting ourselves together and as usual when you have bloggers around, being NOT LOUD is just not us... hahaha. Thank you to RUSHMEDIA for getting our breakfast for the day, Nasi Lemak Sotong (very very banyak sotong) hahaha I got highblood weiiii BUT it was really a good breakfast, swallowed,  also in the same time praying that my tummy will be a nice fellow for the trip. 
THE BUS RIDE EVER
Okay so our journey starts for KAMPUNG PARIT TENGAH, JOHOR BAHRU. It's the location where the Program of DESASTAY will be officially launch by the State Minister of Johor, YAB DATO' MOHAMED KHALED BIN NORDIN. Travelling down to Johor, has me reminding myself, keep myself not too full with water. Why? 

PLUS HIGHWAY
The R&R between Kuala Lumpur - Negeri Sembilan - Melaka - Jasin are very closed by actually. So it won't be a problem to stop over. But the R&R from Jasin onwards till your destination, is a distance in between. So if you are on a bad tummy day, it's not going to be a pleasant ride. Please do keep your pill #chikitteckaun in supply all the time.... hahaaha I wish I got mine haha
