~ Driving up to Muar ~

It has been 7 years since Hubby drove up to Muar (麻坡). At that time, we got pretty lost finding our way to the temple especially so since we had no GPS. Last week, Hubby made his second attempt and we travel up to Muar with my in-laws.

We woke up at 4 plus and left home at 5 plus in the morning. Breakfast was at Restoran Queen Park and we reached 南亭寺(善才爷庙) around 9am. Despite it's secluded location, don't be surprised to see  Singapore cars (like us) who travel all the way down for prayers.  

There are many CNY goodies on sale and we bought some back along the way. I must say the 辫子酥 is extremely delicious! It's taste, softness and sweetness is just right!

After leaving the temple, Hubby drove down to the city for lunch. While asking the locals on the road directions, I learned that Muar City has 6 main roads, (大马路(海乾街)、二马路、三马路、四马路、五马路以及六马路) where many old shophouses are located along them. Muar is a food heaven and we also pass by the famous 贪吃街.

We managed to find Yong Sheng Confectionery (荣成礼坊) which is located along the 二马路.

So far, the only problem we have is finding a clean toilet for Gladys (especially when she complains of a tummyache). We went to Wetex Parade (a leading department store in Muar city) and the toilets there are very new and clean. ^_^ There are many retail shops and resturants within the mall and The Store also occupied a few storeys within Wetex. We bought some new shorts for Denver and shop around for awhile.

Since Hubby is the only driver on this trip, he was already very tired and had a difficult time driving back to Singapore. We made it back home around evening time just in time for dinner. It was a simple half day trip down to Muar but everytime, there is something new to see and learn on our little trips. :)
