Recommended Eats in Johor Bahru (JB): City Square

BornGa Korean Restaurant

We're having a craving for Korean BBQ and came across BornGa Korean Restaurant in City Square. The restaurant was separated into 2 sections, with BBQ and without BBQ. If we decided to have BBQ, they have a minimum order of at least 2 plates of BBQ meats.

Many small Korean side dishes were served first together with the lettuce. The lettuce is really fresh and sweet and so pretty!!

We ordered pork belly and premium beef. The meat are really tender and juicy.

The Kim Chi soup was yummy as well!


Arashi is a must visit when we are in JB, Arashi has branches in City Square as well as KSL. We really loved the fresh and quality food for the steamboat. The price is really cheap as well as compared to eating steamboat in Singapore. The interior is comfy and nice too!

They have set meal as well as la carte order. Set meal includes the cost of the pot of soup and rice. They have a huge variety of soup base to choose, almost 10 kinds of soup. I like Konbu soup base the most.

1 mixed meat set meal and 1 pork collar set meal with a plate of gyoza and 2 drinks only cost us 80RM!!
They also have ala carte plates of premium wagyu beef (large size), pork collar (medium size) and chicken (medium size). For ala carte orders, RM5 will be charged on each pot of soup base.

We ordered the tender grill beef steak and grilled chicken thigh with choice of fried rice or fries and corns. The meat was quite a big piece and we have to cook the beef ourselves. It was quite tiring as I don't want it to be overcooked but of course not uncooked as well. Haha.. So i have to keep flipping and cutting and cooking. It was quite fun though LOL. The meat was quite tender and for the price, it was a good deal!

My Favourite Salon: Govin Hair @ KSL City Mall

Do you have the same problem as me? Want to dye, perm, rebond or do treatment for your hair but after looking at the price of the established hair salon in Singapore you just wanna shake head and walk away from the salon.

Lucky for me, I found a good, cheaper hair salon with excellent service and experience just across the Straits! At KSL City Mall at JB!

I had gone thrice and I was very happy with my every experience there!

My first and third time there was for hair and scalp treatment and they were really good! The scalp massage was so comfortable, I literally could fell asleep while they worked on my hair! The most special experience was during the wait at the hair wash area. They provided aroma therapy there by dripping some lavender essential oil into the hot water and I nearly slept.

My second time there was to colour and cut my hair. Oh my! Their hair colour has no ammonia smell at all and I love it! Previously, whenever I colour my hair at other hair salons, the colouring has …

Mucota Omega Rebonding at Focus Hairdressing

I initially wanted to try out volume rebonding at some Korean hair salon in Singapore but the price was really expensive, around $350 for my hair length and I was told that the effect was just like soft rebonding, except that it gives the hair more volume. For my hair length, the hairstylist usually will recommend me to perm the ends to have the romantic Korean feel. But I know I will be lazy to maintain the curls. So I dropped the idea. 

I saw many good reviews online for mucota rebonding at Focus Hairdressing. It's located at Cuppage Plaza Level 1 which is just 5 mins walk from Somerset MRT. I have previously tried mucota hair treatment at Creme Hairdressing (Chinatown Point outlet) and I really love the treatment effect. You can read about my mucota treatment experience at Creme Hairdressing. So i decided to try out Mucota rebonding.

I originally planned to take the mucota dyna hair rebonding since it is the cheapest kind of mucota rebonding that Focus offers, it's only $200 …

Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Hair Treatment at Creme Hairdressing

It has been a long time since I last did treatment and color to my hair. It's to a stage where I already cannot stand the frizziness, dryness, ugly color of my unkempt hair.

I was thinking of rebonding my hair to straighten my anyhow curl fringe and to solve the frizzy hair problem, but I was afraid that my hair will be too flat and look unnatural. I researched online and came across Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment. After some research, i realised the price of this hair treatment charged by some salon for my hair length could go up to $200+ to $300, and I definitely do not feel like spending this amount of money just for the hair treatment.

While surfing on Groupon one day, i saw this.

$108 for Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment for any hair length. I bought it immediately and arranged for an appointment. Over the phone, the hairdresser told me that the time required for this treatment is around 3 hours.

The lady who attended to me was Celine, she was from Taiwan. She was quite nice and gentle…
