In this post, I will share about our latest tea tasting experience with Koong Woh Tong Five Flower Tea and our shopping experience at Decathlon. 🙂
During the weekend, we had a day tour to the nearest state of Malaysia which is Johor. Visiting Johor Bahru takes only a few hours and it is a good way to spend a day as a family in various activities. But, on this day, we went to Johor Bahru just for food and shopping. Interestingly, this was our first visit to Johor Bahru after the pandemic. We were frequent visitors to Johor Bahru before the pandemic. We spent December 31st of 2019 in Johor Bahru. Lately, though we booked a hotel in Johor Bahru to spend the 2020 Chinese New Year holidays, we couldn’t travel due to arising of Covid virus. And, finally, we made this visit in 2023!
We bought items that we wanted. We also enjoyed the good food there. Here is a quick post with some of our experiences in Johor Bahru. (With fewer words and more photos 🙂 )
Shopping @ Decathlon
Decathlon was our first stop which is a place for outdoor gear. I bought a backpack for me and my son bought a football. He was asking for a proper football as the balls he owns are simply balls that we bought him as a kid. There was a range of footballs and we could choose one after reading the features and after testing.
I simply learned how to buy a football for a child! 🙂
The child was happy that he could test different footballs before he choose one.
Stationary and clothes shopping
We also bought some clothes and also stationary from different shops at City Square Mall.
I found some beautiful photo albums at Popular Bookshop. But, I didn’t buy it this time. I though I should print some photos first and then buy photo albums.Otherwise,these albums will stay in my wardrobe for few months or sometimes years until I print photos 🙂
Spending quality time with the child is so important and I believe it is one of the important aspects of parenting if you do not want to be a toxic parent.
Tasting Five Flower Tea at Koong Woh Tong
Although we tasted different food,I will share our herbal tea tasting experience in this post. We had Five Flower Tea at Koong Woh Tong which is a traditional herbal tea shop. Koong Woh Tong is popular for their herbal jelly. But, we tried Five Flower Tea which is refreshing. According to their menu, this tea is made for moisturizing and good eye sight.
The outlet has a traditional appearance with its golden colour teapots and decorations.
Some of the walls were decorated with Chinese porcelain plates and some other ornaments.
The five flower tea was refreshing. It is of bitter-sweet taste. Considering its herbal value for the body, I forgot about the bitter taste and concentrated only on the sweet taste. Yes, it was refreshing! 🙂 Anyway, while my husband and I enjoyed this tea, son wanted an ice cream from the next outlet.
Finally, it was another weekend that we spent happily. It is a new week already. We are back to our busy daily lives. How about you? How was your week? Do you like herbal teas? Please share your thoughts below.
