Travel: Kluang, Johor's Hidden Gem Part 1 - Kluang Mall, Merdeka Hotel, Tong Huat Confectionery

More often than not, when people travel up north or down south, they have just their end destination in mind. Whether it's Johor Bahru, or Singapore, or Penang, or even Ipoh. Very seldom do people make other towns their destinations because, really, what is there to see?

Well, I'm here to let you know, there is a very interesting town a little up north of Johor Bahru, called Kluang. Yes, you might have heard of it, because that's where Kluang Coffee comes from, and is the origin of the much franchised "Kluang Station" because, surprise surprise, it is a coffee shop at the Kluang KTM Station (which is still in operations btw).

Kluang is about three hours (or two, if you're adventurous) drive from KL, and according to Wikipedia, "Kluang is a town and district located near the middle of the state of Johor in the southern portion of peninsular Malaysia. Kluang lies about 110 km north of Johor Bahru, east-southeast of Batu Pahat, west of Mersing and south of Segamat."

So to tackle the age old adage, what is there to see and do? I am bringing you a three-part post to what I did, ate, and saw at Kluang over a weekend (yes, 2 days, 1 night) :D More after the jump!

Event: Penang, KL, and Sarawak emerge Victorious at the Star Factor Showdown

Quality, showmanship and determination defined hospitality perfection at the second GABPS Academy National Finals. Held in the grand auditorium at EX8, Subang Jaya, the Top 3 hospitality industry professionals demonstrated nothing less than a remarkable show of draught skills, enhanced with their Star Factor. They were chosen out of a pool of more than 1,400 participants and hence, qualifying them to an intensive GABPS Academy Boot Camp.

These three winners were, incidentally, the top three people that I was rooting for. Glen Oliver Joseph from Mish Mash, Penang, mainly because he reminds me of my Glen :D Sean Leong Wai Yean from Muzeum, Setiawalk, cos he was very entertaining, and I think it's safe to say that a lot of people rooted for him, and Spencer Ezra Anak Petter from Publique, Kuching. Sarawak represent! Enough said :D
