Living in Singapore, Johor Bahru is our favorite place for short getaways and shopping trips whenever there is a holiday. We don’t need a reason to visit Johor Bahru. ( or JB as most call this city of Malaysia)After our recent long holiday in Sri Lanka, year-end weekend was the perfect time to visit JB again. Reason? No perfect reason at all! We wanted to spend family time, entertain the kid, and most importantly we wanted to buy school stuff for the kid.
I still remember the back to school days during my school time, the best part of the new school term is that we get new shoes, new bags and books if need. So, following the same, it is time to buy new items for the kid. He will be in Kindergarten this year (K1).After around 2 months holiday in Sri Lanka, we wanted to give him some excitement which can make him eager to go to school on the first day of the new school term.
Johor Bahru is with large city malls namely City Square, Komtar JBCC and many other. As it was the holiday season, both malls were decorated nicely to give us a festive mood.
At City Square mall, there were lots of photo opportunities with popular Sesame Street Characters. Other than that, Sesame street themed school supplies were on sale. Our kid was so happy to have his new water bottle, file case, snack box and some other items with his favourite Sesame Street characters!
In Komtar JBCC, kid enjoyed playing on kiddy rides and games.
After spending a day at Johor Bahru among activities including shopping,playing and dining,kid wanted to come back to Singapore soon to play with his latest name labels.Those name labels were perfect on his new school supplies.
It was awesome to spend the year end at Johor Bahru. How about you? How do you prepare your kids for the new school term?
