One of the best attraction in JB is the City Square Shopping centre at JB’s Central Business District. It’s strategically and conveniently located near the causeway and it certainly attracted a lots of singaporeans to shop there especially clothes, haircuts at salons, fashion apparels, gadgets and etc.

There was actually some presentations last weekend, the ASIMO robot was here!! It did attracted quite a crowd with the robot’s presentation. My kid loves it and though I was kinda bored with it, I have to stay throughout the show for that little guy. 😦

Didn’t bring my canon camera, thus can’t zoom onto the robot with my phone cam. The 20 mins show begins. What a big crowd!

Well, the ASIMO robot was actually walking here and there, dancing and serving a volunteer in the 20 mins show. Basically, it showcast what the robot can do. And ,here’s the link to the ASIMO website.

Finally, it’s lunch time and we went to level 3 for Hong Kong food. We visited the Wong Kok ‘char chan teng’ and it’s been a while since I had nissin noodles with ham and egg. This cost me Rm6.50. (above)

I also had a big cup of ‘Yin Yang’ (tea mixed with coffee in milk). It cost around Rm3 – this one worth it as the cup is really big!

Well, that’s another saturday afternoon! πŸ™‚

Wong Kok Char Chan Teng is located at MF21, Level 3, Johor Bahru City Square, Jalan Wong Ah Fook, 80000 JB.

  1. I been to City Square many years ago but didn’t manage to visit it this year due to the location of the hotel I stayed (Naza Hotel). By the look, it is still well maintained
