Day Trip to Batu Pahat (Malaysia)

27 December 2010:  Hubby's off day on a Monday and he wanted to drive to M'sia for a breather. As we had made a number of trips to JB already, I suggested exploring some other parts of Johor. The night before, we did a little bit of research on Batu Pahat (actually not really much info on this place) and the next day, we drove over there....

We reached JB at around 8.30am to have our breakfast. It took us about one and a half hour to reach Batu Pahat.
Batu Pahat Mall

We saw on mycarforum that there is a restaurant by the sea called "The Ship Village - Seafood Restaurant". We almost reached there but there is a funeral possession along a narrow and winding road that lead to the restaurant, we decided to make a u-turn. Haha.... By the way, before we reached the coastal area, we passed by a really huge Chinese cemetry. I am thinking if we were to drive this road at night, it will be really really eerie. 
Reached the coastal area

The Batu Pahat Well, which was sadly badly polluted and full of litters.

 We ended up having our lunch at "Sushi King" in Batu Pahat Mall, not much choice.  The sushi here was quite sub-standard :(  We didn't really enjoy our lunch here.
Old Town White Coffee

I ordered the Soya Chendol but it was overwhelmed with sweetness!
 After Batu Pahat Mall, we went to the other shopping centre "Square One" which is next to Carrefour. However, nothing to buy there also. There are more food stalls along the road opposite to the shopping mall.

 Our last stop is at a temple.

I want to go too! One of the pictures kinda looks like the buildings in geylang. Or shall I say Geylang is one of the few bits of SG that still looks like M'sia?
Anything particularly interesting in the malls?

Sad to say.... nothing much interesting in their malls. If you wanna shop, this is definitely not the place for you. JB will be better...

I want to go! the only thing holding me back is the safety issue. I hear from Malaysian friends that the roads are not too safe....or is it ok as long as you stick to the highways?
