The past 2 years have been hard on everyone due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only there was no travelling, there was even a Circuit Breaker (aka lock down) in Singapore from Apr 2020 to Jun 2020 where we were only able to go out of our house for essential stuff. This global pandemic has changed the way we work, the way we live and everything… It has been pretty hard for everyone, but light is now finally visible at the end of the tunnel…
After more than 2 years of non-travelling, border restrictions have finally relaxed and we decided to test water and visited our neighbouring country! The exchange rate we gotten from Lucky Plaza was S$1 to RM3.12.
We set off at 6:30am and cleared customs in Woodlands around 7am with hardly any other cars seen. A smooth 40-min drive later, we reached Skudai!
We had breakfast at Cempaka Kway Tiaw Kia 亚福粿条仔. For RM37.50, we had a good spread! Pretty happy with the food here, though a pity the pig’s blood was a tad too hard.

We had drinks at another nearby coffeeshop as this place only served 3-in-1 coffee and tea.
Next up was a quick shopping trip at Paradigm Mall, where Dr K got her favourite bread from Lavender.
We reached our lunch venue, Restaurant Teck Sing 德星茶餐室, at around 11.30am. This place was famous for its Paper Baked Chicken 纸包鸡 (RM32). However, we were way more impressed by the Stewed Pork with Yam 芋头扣肉 (RM18). The yam was oh-so-delicious! The addictive Sambal Petai 叁巴臭豆 (RM18) was another winner for us.

Coming back, we took about 20 min in total to clear customs, and reached home just after 1pm. Fastest trip ever to Malaysia, lol!
