Four States Tour in 8 Hours

I’m beat. Today, I drove, with my girlfriend, through 4 States (Johor, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan and Selangor) and stopped by on average, one place per State for some sightseeing and food.

Starting from Pasir Gudang (Johor), our first destination was Yong Peng¬† for the fish ball noodles. The shop that we visited was pretty high tech, the staff were taking down orders using PDAs and there was free WiFi. Foodwise, it wasn’t really something to shout about, although, the significant lack of MSG was a nice respite from all the crap I’ve been putting up with from KL-based hawkers.

Next stop was Tangkak, also in thQe state of Johor for the beef ball noodles. We had no luck finding the restaurant therefore it was back to the highway for us with the next stop being Malacca Town.

Malacca (Melaka) Town is a World Heritage City and the authorities spare no expense in making that fact known. However, they could really do something about the traffic redirection going on in the town centre as the traffic jam was horrible. In any case, we managed to make our way to the famous Jonker Street and savoured two things, chicken rice balls and pork satay (satay babi). Again, like the fishball noodles we had earlier, these had nothing to shout about.

Somehow travelling out of town would get me mistaken for a foreign tourist. In Johor I was asked whether I’m Singaporean no less than 4 times in 24 hours, while in Malacca Town my girlfriend and I were mistaken for Japanese and Mainland Chinese tourists.

Akward moments aside, the 3rd stop was at Seremban town at a food related place noticeable from the highway. Called Empayar, it’s the place to get Seremban Siew Paus (oven-baked pork buns) and yup, we got several boxes of the good stuff for out friends and family.

Returning back to Klang, I had a seafood dinner in a restaurant in Klang Utama to mark the end of a really tiring day. Phew.
