Vaccinate for better protection

“Thank You! We have received your submission.

Posters outside the Persada International
Convention Centre in Johor Baru

You will be informed of your appointment confirmation in 48 hours via MySejahtera or SMS upon verification of your details. You may also check your appointment confirmation at:

For any enquiries, please call Tel 1800-888-828, Opening Hours 7am to 11pm Monday to Saturday; Sunday Closed.”

This was the acknowledgement I received after I submitted my online application for the Astra Zeneca vaccination appointment.

It was a stormy day when my friend, Wei Leng, called during lunch with an anxious question about the online application which opened for submission at 12 noon.

Mum received her first dose May 3

She was very keen to receive her vaccination and had been trying to log-in from 12 noon but as she failed to make any progress after numerous attempts, she called me out of desperation.

After her battle with cancer seven years ago, Wei Leng recently consulted her oncologist who gave the greenlight for her to receive the Covid19 vaccination when it was offered.

So I paused from eating my lunch to explain the step-by-step procedure to her but because she was using her handphone for the submission, it was a challenge to talk her through the process while we were talking on that same phone.

So she hung up and phoned me again using another telephone so that I could guide her to make the submission on her handphone.

Prior to this, my brother and sister-in-law had urged my eldest sister and I to apply for the Astra Zeneca vaccination when it was offered but we hesitated to do so simply because at that point, our focus was on managing our mother who had just received her second dose of Pfizer vaccine.

Mum received her second dose May 24

We were then keeping a close watch on mum and helping her to cope with the side effects plus her old age ailments – a double dose of physical problems – while we anticipated her new symptoms with each passing day.

While we were busy managing mum and her ailments, we did not think about ourselves yet. And when the option for AZ vaccination was available, we were in no hurry to register our submissions.

The call from Wei Leng that afternoon shifted the gears and accelerated our position from being complacent about ourselves to helping her to register and while we were on the line, to also register ourselves.

While I rushed to finish my lunch to head over to my desk and switch on the laptop, I told Wei Leng to read the form on her handphone and send me her personal details as required on that form.

A wide tent was set up across the road in front
of the Persada International Convention Centre

It was a matter of moments for me to open to the website and completed the form with my own details up to the point which requested for a preferred date for the appointment.

My sister picked a date – well pass the two weeks after mum received her second dose of vaccination – so that we could feel more confident that her physical ailments should by then be reduced, as she grew stronger day-by-day.

I had received the personal details from Wei Leng and she was thrilled when I successfully submitted the registration on her behalf.

My sister and I also submitted our registrations successfully and we picked the same day for our appointments so that we could go together.

After this first step, we waited patiently to receive that important phone message to confirm our appointments.

Observing physical distance at the entrance

When more than 48 hours had passed and there was still not phone message for confirmation, we comforted ourselves by reasoning that they might be overwhelmed by the response and needed more time to reply to all the applications.

It was late night while I was comfortably in bed when I received a WhatsApp message from Wei Leng who asked me to check on MySejahtera quickly because she just discovered that her appointment has been confirmed.

A quick check showed that my sister and I had also received similar messages to confirm our appointments for our requested date, with a time difference of just half an hour.

It was uncanny that both Wei Leng and I had our appointments scheduled at the very same time, 10.30am, so we could comfortably go to the vaccination together.

This confirmation message started an exciting countdown to our vaccination date.

Scanning for my temperature
at the lobby

Meanwhile there were updates from family members and friends who had completed similar appointments and we learnt plenty from their various experiences.

In Johor Baru, the AZ vaccination centre was arranged in the heart of the city at the Persada International Convention Centre.

Then we read news updates about the successful dry-run ahead of the first day when the centre commenced operations along with advice about car parking facilities at nearby malls and that complimentary transport was available from there to the vaccination centre.

A few days after the centre started operations, we took a drive to the city to recce the parking facilities nearby and had a closer look at what was happening outside the centre, just to be prepared when we headed over for our appointment.

I reassured Wei Leng that by the time our date rolled around, any operational hiccups at the centre should by then, be ironed out and our experience would simply be smooth sailing.

Volunteers were on hand to help with
completing the Consent form

Even while the morning for our vaccination appointment dawned grey and gloomy, it did not dampen our enthusiasm to head out for our scheduled appointment.

It was drizzling when we picked Wei Leng so we were each sheltered by an umbrella for a short walk to the vaccination centre from the open carpark next to the Galleria Kotaraya mall.

Vehicles that offered complimentary rides to the centre were parked outside the mall and when a driver offered us a ride, we politely declined because we preferred a brisk walk rather than that short ride.

In the distance, we saw wide tents set in place for drivers to drop-off and pick up passengers as well a corridor cordoned off for people with appointments to enter.

After the mandatory MySejahtera scanning process, we were waved on to walk the path towards the main entrance of the Persada International Convention Centre.

At the desk for consultation with the doctor

To facilitate a smoother flow of people, we had our handphones opened to the MySejahtera app and our Identity Cards ready for verification.

Lines and boxes were labelled on the ground for each arrival to keep their physical distance so we inched our way into the lobby where we stopped for the temperature scan.

The volunteers stationed here must have overheard our chit-chat in English because they gave us the English version of the Consent forms with our Ticket Queue numbers and directed us to proceed into the main hall.

We were immediately ushered to rows of chairs and volunteers greeted us in Malay as they approached to help us with completing the forms.

Heading into the cubicle for our vaccination

I had my own pen ready to fill in the form but when a young lady volunteer offered to help me, I agreed and passed her my Identity Card.

We both sat down and as I was storing my long umbrella safely under the chair, I suddenly heard her utter in surprise, “English?”

I could not hide my amusement because it seemed that she did not expect to see an English version form. I asked if she could manage, to which she replied, “Yes” and proceeded to complete the form.

With our forms completed, the volunteers checked our Queue Numbers before we were ushered to the next station for the doctor’s consultation.

Scanning the QR code provided

They were probably familiar with the family groups who arrived together for vaccination so I told them that we were “sisters” and we were immediately invited to meet the doctor together.

While the doctor could read our names on the Identity Cards to confirm that my sister and I were in fact sisters, she spent more time consulting with “the other sister” Wei Leng, who brought along her prescribed medication to show the doctor.

Armed with our forms and Queue Numbers, we moved to the next station where the volunteers ushered us into the same cubicle to receive our jabs.

My sister wore a sleeveless blouse while Wei Leng and I deliberately chose tops with loose-fitting short sleeves that we could conveniently roll up.

Finally to the Observation section

The doctor and nurse worked efficiently to confirm our respective identities and requested us to scan a QR code provided while they quickly pasted a small square green sticker on our tops.

Later I read what was written on this sticker, which was the time we received our jabs.

I saw the prepared syringes that rested on kidney dishes and observed how they maintained a cool demeanor while he announced the name of the dose and smoothly administered each injection on our proffered arms.

I was the last among the three of us to receive the dose and with a cheery wish, we were ushered onward to the Observation station and invited to sit among others in rows of widely spaced chairs.

It was less than 30 minutes since we arrived and we were by then, under observation after receiving our first dose of AZ, and waiting for our Queue Numbers to be called.

At the Observation section

I reminded myself to move my arm instead of leaving it stationery after the jab so as to avoid any stiffness but I was cautious not to raise my arm above my head because it was a sign to the volunteers for the need of aid during this observation.

As the chairs in front of us became vacant, the volunteers asked us to moved forward to those seats and we cooperated each time in a weird game of Musical Chairs, until our Queue Numbers were called.

At the desk, the staff asked a few routine questions and gave instructions to complete the questionnaire in the MySejahtera app for any symptoms or side-effects after 24 hours. And that was it.

A photo memento with my sister

I exited the hall into the foyer to wait a few minutes for the other two and then it was time for photo mementoes of receiving our first dose before we made our way out into the drizzle and a short walk back to the nearby open carpark.

In the excitement of reaching the centre this morning, I neglected to take in the sight of the towering Sultan Ibrahim building, perched on Bukit Timbalan.

So on the return, I made up for it by taking a good look – through the drizzle – to appreciate its majestic grandeur.

Back in the car, we all agreed that we had a pleasant experience and that our much-anticipated vaccination excursion was smoothly completed within the hour.

A friend who had received her AZ first dose a few days ahead, told me that she could hardly sleep after the jab so I was ready to catch up on some light reading and television binge watching.

A photo memento with Wei Leng

She also warned me about the hunger pangs that crept up on her so it was time to head home for lunch and to chill-out with some well-deserved rest and relaxation.

With an increasing number of virus variants being identified, getting vaccinated just gives us an extra layer of protection against this unseen enemy.

It is reassuring to learn from reliable news sources that scientists have found that in the unfortunate event of an infection, the symptoms that occur in vaccinated people will not be as severe or life-threatening.

Now that we have taken the first step for better protection, we are still strictly obeying the set of Standard Operating Procedures, if and when we were out.

So while waiting for the appointment to receive our next dose, we are staying home to help our community to break the chain of infection in this serious battle against the Covid19 virus.

Matchbox Memories: Hotel brands in JB

My story on the Mutiara Johor Bahru, set me off to reminisce about other hotel brands in Johor Baru that have also ceased their operations.

The Mutiara JB was the former Johor Bahru Holiday Inn – Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza at Jalan Dato Sulaiman in Century Gardens, the first Holiday Inn here.

Looking through our collection of matchbooks and matchboxes was like a walk down the proverbial memory lane because these hotel names made me think about its whereabouts in the city along with a flood of memories of who with, why and when I was there.

When the 4-star Johor Baru Holiday Inn opened in 1982, it was during an era when the state welcomed foreign industrial investments and Johor was seeing more visitor arrivals who required quality accommodation.

To provide a wider choice of accommodation, more hotels, both local and international brands, started to open in the city.

Among the familiar brands of hotels that opened here were those from The Merlin Hotel Group, which opened not one but two hotels in JB.

The Merlin Tower Johor Bahru opened within a shopping mall located at the corner where Jalan Meldrum meets Jalan Station in the city center while Merlin Inn Johor Bahru was at Jalan Bukit Meldrum.

Later, the Merlin Tower property was reopened as Johor Bahru Central Hotel while the Merlin Inn premises was used as a hospitality training school.

The JB Central Hotel should not be mistaken for the Sentral Hotel that opened at Jalan Tenteram, close to the former Merlin Inn on Bukit Meldrum.


In line with their tagline, Your Complete Host, two more hotels in this group were opened in other Johor districts as Merlin Inn Desaru and Merlin Inn Mersing.

Meanwhile more local brand hotels were also opening in the city to offer visitors a choice of more affordable accommodation.

These included Hotel Regent Elite situated at the corner where Jalan Siew Nam meets Jalan Meldrum, and Tropical Inn Johor Baru at Jalan Gereja.

Tropical Inn lived up to their tagline, Malaysian Hospitality You Can Afford, and provided quality accommodation to visitors who preferred affordable stays.

This hotel brand ceased its operations recently and the property was refurbished and reopened as JO Hotel Johor Bahru.

Meanwhile, the first 5-star hotel in the city was constructed at the corner where Jalan Salim meets with Jalan Trus and Jalan Abdullah Ibrahim, a location known as The Kotaraya.

It opened in 1991 as The Puteri Pan Pacific Hotel Johor Bahru, an international brand hotel in JB, in a joint-venture project with the state-owned Johor Corporation.

It’s opening marked the arrival of other international hotel brands that opened in and around the city.

In 2005, the management of The Puteri Pan Pacific Hotel Johor Bahru was handed back to Johor Corporation which in effect, changed the hotel’s name to Puteri Pacific Hotel Johor Bahru.

It continued to be a hotel of choice for its food and entertainment outlets, in particular the Selasih Restaurant which featured a menu of signature Malay dishes that represented the various states in our nation.

I also remember the Hai Tien Lo Chinese Restaurant, a popular destination for Halal Chinese cuisine and a range of quality dim sum. This restaurant was later renamed Kai Xuan.

Besides its Food and Beverage outlets, this hotel also had an exciting fun club in its basement where patrons could enjoy dancing to live band performances.

I was at its official launch and received a ceramic mug as souvenir but must confess that I failed to remember its name. It was a cool name like 1819, some four-digit year but I just cannot remember...

The Newsroom Café continued to host annual Ramadan buffets but due to the prolonged lockdown in the global pandemic, the Puteri Pacific Hotel JB ceased its operations in August 2020.

Another international brand hotel which opened here was the 5-star Hyatt Regency Johor Bahru at Jalan Sungai Chat.

One of this hotel’s main selling points was its location on a hillock which commanded a panoramic view of Dataran Johor, the Johor Straits and beyond to the shores of neighbouring Singapore.

Their free-form swimming pool, designed within a lush landscaped garden, was another plus point for this gem of a property that continues to operate as Thistle Johor Bahru.

In Senai, an international brand hotel which opened close to the International Airport was Sofitel – Palm Resort Golf & Country Club.

This sprawling property located at Jalan Persiaran Golf, off Jalan Jumbo in Senai, later changed its name to Mercure Johor Palm Resort before being known as its present name, Le Grandeur Palm Resort.

Another hotel which opened along Jalan Bukit Meldrum was the Grand Blue Wave Hotel Johor Bahru and continues to welcome guests with only a name-change to GBW Hotel Johor Bahru.

This all-suites hotel was a popular choice for long-staying guests and guests who preferred more space in their accommodation.

Separated from Singapore by a causeway, JB welcomed regular visitors from Singapore who often enjoy staycations here.

This healthy trend saw more local hotels, boutique hotels and Bed & Breakfast places opening in and around the city to cater to the accommodation needs of weekenders and holidaymakers here.

Young entrepreneurs opened cool B&B accommodation within prewar shophouses in the city’s heritage quarter while budget hotels sprouted in the suburbs.

The favourable exchange rate for the Singapore Dollar also saw a trend where wedding couples – where one partner was Malaysian and the other Singaporean – chose to host their dinner banquets in hotels here for their Malaysian family and guests to attend more conveniently.

It was to everybody’s advantage to host a banquet or reception in a reputable hotel at a favourable exchange rate and for guests to attend and enjoy the warm hospitality of such hotels.

The hotels in JB also benefited from the tourism industry where international groups visiting Malaysia had an itinerary for a final overnight night stay here before they departed for an early flight across the causeway through Changi Airport in Singapore.

While hotels and resorts in Johor have been hard hit by the border closure between Singapore and Malaysia as well as between states and districts, hoteliers are working hard to sustain their business through their Food & Beverage outlets and Work-From-Hotel packages.

Armed with a pessimistic outlook, hoteliers are making good use of this low period to maintain their properties and prepare for the revival of business once the borders reopen.

Note: Between my eldest sister and I, we have accumulated a vast collection of matchboxes over the years.

In those days, matchbooks and matchboxes were given away by a wide range of brands for the use of smokers and souvenir-collectors like us.

From hotels, restaurants, fast-foods to airlines, there were matchboxes for us to collect from events and our travels locally and abroad.

So each matchbox virtually holds a memory and a story from somewhere. As smoking is now discouraged, we hardly see any matchboxes provided as souvenirs.

This series of stories are based on our matchbox collection. #matchboxmemories

Matchbox Memories: Mutiara Johor Bahru

It was a sad day on June 1, 2021 because it marked the end of an era for the first 4-star hotel in Johor Baru.

Originally opened as Johor Bahru Holiday Inn

With May 23 as its last day opened to the public, the Mutiara Johor Bahru, a hotel in the Mutiara Hotels and Resorts Malaysia group, ceased operations on 1 June 2021.

A few days prior to this date, I received a poster from the hotel which shared a poignant message in a poem written in Malay.

This traditional pantun has four lines which read like this:


Manis sungguh buah pulasan

Enak dikesip perlahan lahan

Bila ada sebuah pertemuan

Pasti datang sebuah perpisahan.

As in traditional pantun, its last two lines bore the core message. Its translation in English simply said: When there was a meet-up, there will also be a parting.

I shared this pantun with our friends, the Wangs now based in Kuala Lumpur who were regular guests at this hotel whenever they visited JB.

Mrs Wang’s reply was a shocked exclamation, “My home away from home… gone are the days!”

I am sure her shock resonated among all who have had their own experiences with this hotel.

Johor Bahru Holiday Inn
to Holiday Inn Johor Bahru

Situated along Jalan Dato Sulaiman within the Century Gardens residential area, it opened as Johor Baru Holiday Inn, International-Asia/Pacific in 1982, adjacent to the mall named Holiday Plaza.

From Johor Baru Holiday Inn, its name was changed to, Holiday Inn Johor Bahru.

The hotel expanded with extensive renovation and in 1992, it was rebranded as Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza Johor Bahru.

While my relationship with Holiday Inn started in JB, I will never forget my road trip from JB to stay with Holiday Inn Resort Pedu Lake, Alor Setar in Kedah with a stopover stay at Holiday Inn Penang, Batu Ferrenghi.

Our family held many celebrations in Holiday Inn-Mutiara JB, with the grandest of all occasions being a gathering of our extended family for grandmother’s 90th birthday celebration.

Rebranded as Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza

I can remember the Food and Beverage outlets in the lobby level of Holiday Inn JB: Boulevard Coffee House and Restaurant and the Delicatessen Corner.

The Millennium Disco Club here was probably the coolest club to dance the night away to the tunes of a live band performance. I can still remember having fun dressing up for a glittering night out at this club…

Located on the mezzanine level, the menu and service at Meisan Szechuan Restaurant earned a proud reputation as the first choice in banquet dining on Chinese cuisine.

The restaurant’s Halal status quickly established a firm following of fans for their Szechuan hot-and-spicy soup savoured with freshly fried mantou buns.

One of my most unforgettable taste experiences from the Meisan must be from the exquisite flavour of their Mango Pudding that were not only smooth and tasty but also made with real mango inside.

My only complaint was why they had to serve the pudding on a plate/saucer where I had to “chase” the slippery pudding around the saucer with my spoon…

[I was thrilled to later discover a replica of this fine Mango Pudding in another Chinese restaurant here and they served their smooth pudding in a bowl. I was fortunate to have my last taste of it in September 2019 because it so happened that it was the last day before the chef’s term with this restaurant ended.]

Meisan, a Chinese restaurant that featured Szechuan specialties has established itself as a renowned brand that was also opened in Holiday Inn International-Asia/Pacific at Scotts Road, Singapore and Holiday Inn Penang, Batu Ferringhi Beach, in Penang.

Meanwhile the Red Baron Bar Lounge on the mezzanine floor was a popular hangout for people who enjoyed a drink (or two!) while listening to live lounge music performed by a soloist or three-piece band.

When the hotel further expanded with a new wing, Capri, a fine-dining Italian restaurant was opened in the lobby level of this new wing.

Even when the hotel was rebranded as Mutiara Johor Bahru in 2000, regulars still referred to the hotel as Holiday Inn, and it took a few years before the Mutiara identity was finally established here.

Based on personal experience, I must commend the hotel for its staff training that exceeded expectations and set them apart from other hotels in the city.

From the doormen to the service staff and management, there was an exceptional quality in their training that shaped the identity of a HolidayInn-Mutiara JB branded staff.

The original team and subsequent staff who have gone through their excellent training would agree that they have learnt that there was indeed much more than just the pride of working with an international hotel brand and providing service with a smile.

Over the years, HolidayInn-Mutiara JB was my first choice of hotels to house my visitors and with the help of my hotelier friends there, I had the privilege to check them into the hotel with no fuss.

I always told my family and friends who stayed with the hotel, to share with me about their in-house experiences – whether good or bad.

This was because I wished to provide feedback to the hotel and ensure that any shortcomings would be rectified without delay. After all, I was also their host in this city and my visitors’ comfort was a priority.

They could, of course, deal with the hotel directly for any incidental issues but I always asked them about their stay experience so that I was aware if there was anything out of the ordinary.

I have lost count of the number of my visitors who have stayed with this hotel but I distinctly remember an incident with cousin Malcolm, who stayed with this hotel when he visited from Sydney.

For a guy, I must say he is a good shopper because he enjoyed browsing around the malls to shop for himself and his family before he packed and left for home.

Later we learnt that while he was packing, he discovered that a large bottle of shower gel (he just bought) had spilled inside his travel bag so he quickly emptied the bag’s contents to clean up the shower gel.

We had a good laugh when he told us about how astonished he was to see the foam that flooded the bathtub in the hotel bathroom, which to his thankful relieve, finally subsided.

It was such an unforgettable experience that every time we recounted this hilarious incident in his hotel bathroom, it still tickled us to picture him trying to control the foaming that filled that bathtub!

I can recall my last dining experience at the hotel in 2019 for the Ramadan buffet food preview that featured their spread of local kueh presented in a kampung setting.

While this hotel brand no longer exists in JB, the building still stands at Jalan Dato Sulaiman.

Now each time we drive along Jalan Dato Sulaiman, I am sure the sight of the former Mutiara JB will evoke countless memories for a lot of people and we can spend a lot of time sharing and reminiscing over our many recollections.

As we bid a fond farewell to this grand dame, let us treasure the good memories made with friends and family at this hotel and look forward to having that same experience of the superior standards of service and food quality we once had here.

Note: Between my eldest sister and I, we have accumulated a vast collection of matchboxes over the years.

Samples of matchbooks and matchboxes

In those days, matchbooks and matchboxes were given away by a wide range of brands for the use of smokers and souvenir-collectors like us.

So each matchbox virtually holds a memory and a story from somewhere. As smoking is now discouraged, we hardly see any matchboxes provided as souvenirs.

Food still good at Qing Palace

Facade of the entrance to Qing Palace
at Pulai Springs Resort, Johor

For years, Qing Palace, the award-winning Chinese restaurant at Pulai Springs Resort, has been a family favourite and the preferred place for countless celebrations and dinners.

I cannot forget our Christmas dinner in December of 2015 when dad dined with us there, his last time before he passed peacefully in January 2016.

Our family dinner, held within a private banquet room, was the highlight of our family staycation at the Cinta Ayu Suites over Christmas Day that year.

The next family celebration catered by Master Chef Lim Ming Chong and his culinary team at Qing Palace, was for the wedding banquet hosted by my nephew and his wife in September 2017.

It was a memorable reunion of family and friends who joined us in Johor Baru from around the globe for this joyous occasion, celebrated with a sumptuous banquet prepared by Qing Palace.

Since then, I have had the privilege to return to Qing Palace and the resort restaurants for media previews of festive menus, hosted by general manager, Sunny Soo and the Marketing & Communications team.

It was always a pleasure to be back at the resort again because their food quality and service standards have stayed consistently good.

After joining the media review for the Qing Palace Chinese New Year menu in 2020, I have not been to the resort again. This was due to the Movement Control Order where a limit was imposed on our travel distance.

Throughout the lockdown periods, my family was preparing our own meals and for a change, I would take a drive to buy takeaways from nearby vendors.

Recently I read a post on my Facebook feed which featured the Special Lockdown delivery and takeaway menu by Qing Palace during this June, and quickly shared it with my sister.

At once we studied the menu together and discussed the options, taking note of the spicy and non-spicy dishes so that the menu we chose should be suitable for mum.

The menu choices were for Set Dishes with Rice, Set Menus that comprised several dishes that come with rice, plus a separate menu for Ala Carte dishes. 

Our takeaway of Set Three, made up of
[clockwise] Steamed white rice, stir-fried
Chinese Spinach with Anchovies, Chicken in
Chilli Oil and sauteed Ostrich meat in
Black Bean sauce

It was interesting that there was an unspoken agreement in our decision to place an order, probably because we were just confident about their food quality.

The only question we had was, when to place the order?

Once we decided on which day to place an order, I made the choice for Set Three, made up of three dishes with two portions of steamed white rice that should serve two to three persons.

I thought that it would be a treat to savour sauteed Ostrich meat stir-fried in Black Pepper Sauce, Chicken in Chilli Oil and stir-fried Chinese Spinach with Anchovies.

As two of the dishes prepared in Chilli Oil and Black Pepper Sauce may be too spicy and unpalatable for mum, I also chose a milder flavour in Braised Chicken with Young Ginger from the Ala Carte menu.

Meanwhile I also read the small print on the menu poster which listed delivery charges and a choice of payment either online or by Cash On Delivery.

A portion of Braised Chicken with Young Ginger

The ordering process via WhatsApp was smooth and efficient, and when I received their confirmation of order with the items clearly listed, all that was left to do was to expect its delivery.

Even though my requested time for delivery was 6.30pm, the doorbell chimed just before 6pm to announce the safe delivery of our dinner order from Qing Palace.

As I served each portion of food to mum, it was pure joy to observe how she savoured the taste of these familiar dishes and a clear conviction for me to place yet another meal order with Qing Palace very soon.

Special Lockdown Takeaway and Delivery Menu promotion is now on till 30 June 2021. Delivery and self-collect between 11 am and 7pm daily.

To order, call and WhatsApp Tel: +6017 – 733 8724 and +6016 – 733 2919.

Qing Palace, a Muslim-friendly Chinese restaurant, is located in Pulai Springs Resort at 20km Jalan Pontian Lama, 81110 Pulai, Johor. Website:
