Not really a fan of JPO. It is smacked right in the middle of a hot palm oil plantation. It takes like forever to reach, and there was a limited variety of halal food.
All that have changed now, it’s Food Channel (the food court), have filled up nicely. There is Korean, Indian, Indonesian, Cheesy Fried Chicken… I am tempted to go back, plonk myself at the food court, with the aircon and the food and a nearby spacious musollah, while the wife do her retail therapy.
We visited the Gelang Patah Tuesday Night Market, last week and tried the Burger Bakar.
Awesome burger, better than the McDonalds, A&W, Subway and even the pasar malam favourite…Burger Ramly.
Price ranging from RM8 to RM13, it was delicious. Has to be considering the pasar malam was just across the street.
To get there, via the Tuas 2nd Link, take the Gelang Patah exit, turn left at the Petronas T-junction and take another left at the next T-junction and into the carpark.
We spend the last 3 days of 2012 in Putrajaya, Malaysia. Specifically at the 2012 Twins of Faith Family Festival organised by Mercy Mission. It was a weekend well spent, and it did provide us with a real dose of Iman booster.
Alhamdulillah, thank Allah swt for making our journey to Putrajaya smooth and safe, although it was executed the last of minutes.
Various people we learned from, the sheikhs, lecturers on stage and the volunteers and even the audience we around we made friends with. Got to love the atmosphere.
Got to admit, we both have never heard from any of the listed speakers before this. Maybe a bit of Tawfique, but that’s it. So, we were both lapping it up, dividing the main venue talks and the plenary sessions with each other, vigorous note taking (mine shorthand…or sort of). Various topic about God, love, family….everything. There was even a speaker from Singapore, the Suchi group bosses about teenage parenting. Even consumerism was touched on via the Art segment.
Probably, if I was 10yrs younger, could have joined the skate too. And, definitely the kids corner was amazing. The whole organization of the event and dedicated volunteers truly amaze me. I doubt Singapore will be able to pull something of this scale or even 50%, if anyone wants to do it, count me in.
Oh! I even had the chance to chat with Abdurrahman Chao while we were waiting for our transport back to the hotel. His tummy wasn’t feeling too well, and stupid me…talk about Taiwanese Beef noodle. Dang!
Some shots taken…
Not forgetting the beautiful opening montage.
We had to leave Putrajaya, Malaysia on the eve of 2013, had to give the Countdown party a miss and hope to be back in Dec 2013…..In sya allah.
I joined the Die-Hard fans to support the Singapore team in Malaysia. A quick call to Akbar Hashim, transfer of money and I was ready. Miss those Malaysia Cup days and hopefully, we can indeed support Singapore in Brazil World Cup 2014. Hahaaa..
Malaysia got ball of their own.

If you look closely at the picture below, you can see the Singapore flag on the Malaysian side. A defaced one. here at stomp
Telling the Japanese match officials their dream score.
Watching out for projectiles thrown by the Malaysian fans.
Waited for the stadium to clear, before we can leave. The Ultras were actually waiting for us outside, taunting and throwing a few things. Typical football taunts.
But the racial slurs are a bit uncalled for Losers
A fan i made friends with on this trip, JJ, recorded it here
Noticed the rider on bottom left of screen? Our bus was also pelted with pebbles along the way. The police did a good job though. They escorted the buses all the way to Sungei Besi toll.
