Singapore's first Pop-Up Manga Library | City Square Mall | 漫画

Singapore's first Pop-up Grab-n-Go Manga Library opens at City Square Mall from now till end-August 2023! Gladys and I went to have a look today to check out the new library especially so since she is also a Manga fan.

Located on Level 4 of the shopping mall (near Daiso Japan), though the space is not big, it has about 5,000 graphic novels and comic collections. The books are new and we saw many familiar titles like Beyblade, Fairy Tail, Dragon Ball, Detective Conan, Spy X Family, Assassin's Creed etc.

Only books on the Lending section are available for borrowing. The other titles placed on the Reference shelves are only for browsing. Nevertheless, I took opportunity to borrow some comics too for my leisure read. Seems like rekindle the good old days. Entry and exit into the Manga Library is via scanning of your NRIC. Borrowing of books is also made easy with the Grab-n-Go concept. Simply pick up to 8 books and scan your NRIC prior to exit. Do ensure the titles of the books that you are borrowing are correct. Pop-up Manga Library is only open for the next 6 months so you may want to check it out if you are a Manga fan and around the area.
Manga Library
Address: 180 Kitchener Rd, City Square Mall level 4, Singapore 208539
Opening Hours: 10am–10pm, Daily (Till end-August 2023)

TANBA Japanese BBQ (炭馬烧肉专门店) @ Twin Galaxy | JB City | Eat In Johor Bahru

Our first visit back at TANBA after 3 years. Quality of food did not change much but the price has definitely increased significantly. The total amount was about RM172 per pax (~SGD53) for dinner price which is steeper. However, we really like the variety of dishes (more than 100 items) on the menu - especially the assorted marinated meat and sashimi.

We came here for New Year celebration and it still feels good to be back. The ambience and service is the same - prompt and friendly. We can pick our dishes from the tablet and we just need to sit, relax and eat to our hearts content. Assorted marinated meat grilled over charcoal taste extra sweeter.

Cedar Point Food Court (食得福美食中心) | JB City | Eat In Johor Bahru

Cedar Point Food Court (食得福美食中心) is our favourite food centre in Johor Bahru. Whenever we have cravings for local delicacies, this is the place to go. After so many years, we are still very fond of the variety of food choices, taste & flavour and economic pricing.

Tucked next to Grand Paragon Hotel and only minutes walk away from KSL shopping mall, Cedar Point Food Court is also very popular among locals and tourists.

Check out our video for some of the stalls we go to frequently

Our favourite picks

Tampoi Satay: The most famous pork satay in town since 1972. Sweet and tender meat dipped into a delicious mix of peanut sauce enhance the flavour of the meat. We always order beef, pork and mutton flavour.

Hong Kee BBQ Chicken Wing: Hubby often order this as he likes chicken wings. We used to packet some to munch along the way but now its best to have it served warm on the spot. Ikan Bakar Sin Kee: We have tried many ikan bakar in Johor and this is still our favourite. Not overly spicy and the meat is juicy and fresh. We always come back whenever we have craving for stingray. Sugarcane drink is my must order when I am at the food centre. Super big cup enough for 2-3 to share.

Sentosa Rojak: Tasty rojak with a selection of different ingredients. Might be a bit pricy for RM20 for the locals though.

(Not in this video but we still love the food) - Meng Fang Kway Teow Kia (Opens in the morning) - Ipoh Fried Kueh Teow - Century Curry Fish Head - 77 Curry Fish Head

Check out our post in 2018!

While pricing has increased from before, this is still one of our favourite food hunt.
