Segamat

The Escape part 2

Two weeks have flown by and we have been busy. First three days in Singapore, then three days in JB and then onwards to the house in T6. We have been to Desaru on a day trip, gone swimming at Diamond Hill, been to two Pasar Malam and more. On Christmas Day we went to Segamat to attend my husband’s second cousin’s wedding. It was truly interesting to take part in a Malay wedding and I am so happy that they invited us.  

The day after the wedding we went to the waterfalls at Gunung Ledang, not too far from Segamat. The water was cool and the children enjoyed it immensely. Us grown ups did too. 

After a couple of hours in the cool waterfalls we drove home and about ten minutes from the house in T6 we noticed a small truck by the roadside that sold durian. Durian is the smelly fruit which you either love or hate. When I first tried it I must admit I wasn’t too keen but now I love it. It does smell like something you really shouldn’t eat but it tastes so good. 

Tomorrow we will leave T6 and drive to Malaka. Or Melaka, Malacca or however you choose to spell it.

So we are in Malaysia  now, landed in Singapore late on the 13th and then we crossed the border on the 16th. Right now we are at the house in Taman Sri Lambak, our second home as we call it. I have really slow internet so the posts about Singapore and Johor Bahru will have to wait. I have loads of pictures from Gardens by the Bay and Legoland plus some other places we have visited. Be patient and as soon as possible I will upload them. The plan for tomorrow is a drive to Desaru for some ocean time. Then on the 25th we are invited to a wedding in Segamat. I am beyond excited!!!

They do have some cool buildings in Singapore. I watched a video on YouTube about the city and a guy said “it’s like I’ve arrived in the future”. It is very modern but not soulless in any way.
