Farmland Porridge Steamboat ( Johor Bahru)

untitled-13

This is Benjo 3rd time eating the porridge steamboat since introduced by her friend. It is situated in Johor Bahru somewhere near the Sutera Mall area. Despite the haze (it was quite bad when Benjo was there, the exchange rate of Singapore Dollar to Malaysia Ringgits is too tempting to go over for a meal or two.)

The restaurant as seem from outside. There are lots of car parking lots so you do not need to worry about the carpark if you are driving over there. Alternatively, you can walk along the shelter pathway from Sutera Mall, thereafter cut through the shophouses and you will find it.

We went during the odd hours and on a weekday, there were no much people dining in. (Went during the weekend (without haze, it was fully packed. )

Apparently, you are able to see a lot of news articles and recommendations pasted on the wall of the restaurant, they served cooked dishes too, in case you can’t wait for the steamboat and want to munch on something.

Pumpkin Porridge was highly recommended by Benjo’s friend. Bring it to a boil and dumped put in the ingredients. The porridge was real smooth that you can just drink it the way it was.

When I first heard of steamboat porridge, my impression was Huh? Nice or not sia..and I was not very keen to go all the way to JB just to have the porridge. But after trying it, it was amazing! The porridge is a great match with vegetables and seafood!

Melaka – Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum

As this was my second time going to Melaka, decided to pop by the Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum to have a look of the Nyonya culture. It is actually a walking distance from the red Gereja Christ Church area. You may book a coach online and travel from Singapore to Malacca. It’s about 4 hours coach ride. (without traffic jam)

There was a guided tour to bring you around, explaining the culture in details.

From the jewellery, it is not hard to guess how wealthy the Baba Nyonya were back in the olden days.
