Medini, Puteri Harbour, Jaya Grocer

First off day of the week, we are going to visit +Kenneth Loke's uncle who was just recently transferred from General Hospital to a private ward in Gleneagles Medini.

It has been scorching hot for the passed few days in JHB. You can't quite leave the comfort of your AC dwelling without a good sunscreen, sunnies & load of cold drinks in hand.

Getting to the entrance of this hospital is pretty confusing. Once you're in this area, your GPS or mobile data will be weaken. Blocking of roads on random basis around here are not helping either. Deeming us that round-about driving necessary just to find the correct entrance.

Do be careful when you're driving in this part of the State. Many drivers here took for granted of its low volume of road users in this newly developed town to drive without much care or awareness;  driving in opposite direction of the road, high speed at traffic lights since most of the lights are not working properly.

Next stop, lunch! I was thinking of having a quick, light lunch in the hospital - o'Brien Sandwich. It's Sunday, every shops and administration are closed. Just like their clinics!

Decided to check out Puteri Harbour, since we haven't been back there for almost 2 years. It was pretty empty then.

The car park here is definitely better now. Since the trees have grown quite a bit, cars parked are well-shaded.

Quite a bit of visitors today. There are definitely more shops and eateries here compared to the last time I was here. It was drizzling by the time we've parked our car and walked here.

This is the 3rd time I'm here, on these 3 visits, the weather was sunny-drizzling-passing shower! Three strikes!

A brief walk to check out all the outlets here, we've decided to have our lunch at New Zealand Unlimited. It was a mistake. The wait was super long! Taste-wise, OK. Price wise, tourist rates.

Not impressed by its Sunday Roast
+Kenneth Loke took the Sunday Roast whilst I went mostly for the snacks & soup. We usually have Sunday Roast at home. Haven't done that for a while since I'm steering towards pescatarian. Also, +Kenneth Loke hardly has his off days since he started his new job in Singapore.

This place is better suited for drink'n'chill session with an optional bites. If you want to have a serious dining session, Sunday noon might not be such a great idea. Under-staffed in the kitchen(?). You'll need to wait super long for your main to be served.

180318 A long wait for our lunch at New Zealand Unlimited - Spherical Image - RICOH THETA

We had so much time in hand whilst waiting for any food to be served, I've taken quite an unusual amount of photos here. You know I'm pretty bored when I have more photos taken.

I'm just going to post a few here, though. So, below are our orders for the day. Took almost 2 hours for the wait & eating.

Liquid Diet?

Crab Claw RM8.90

Spicy Mussels

Seafood Chowder

Sunday Roast

The sauce for his Sunday Roast is well-made. If you don't mind the wait - unsure if serving is faster at other time - the taste of their food are actually decent for local standard.

The moment +Kenneth Loke is done with his main, I immediately request for our bill. Billing is pretty swift. Phew. The floor crews are ample, guess the kitchen is the only department lacks in manpower.

Going to check out the Hello Kitty retail shop above this restaurant now! Bought a rear view mirror for our car! SWEET!


Next stop, our favourite grocer back in K.L, which recently has a branch in Johor!

I want, but I shouldn't. Will save it when I'm in Japan for it. It's not that far from where we are now, too. So, no excuse not to visit there more!

When we arrived at Citrine Iskandar, we almost immediately started checking the rental availability next to this building! I like how I can just walk down from my abode, I'll get to my favourite grocer, 7-Eleven, Mr DIY, Old Town Coffee café, pharmacy.... I'm sorted!

Only downside, the mobile data and reception is almost NIL here! Sigh.

Almost time to go home for our furkids' duty - dinner time. We've decided to make brownies for dinner. Teehee.
