Pelangi Leisure Mall Johor Bahru

JB Bazaar

Downtown Johor Bahru hosts the bustling JB Bazaar on Jalan Segget seven nights a week and anything can be bought from toys, shoes, clothes, antiques, souvenirs, knick-knacks and a diverse selection of food.

The JB Bazaar is well worth investigating just to enjoy the atmosphere of the place and the wily stall holders may even entice you to bag a bargain!

There is a carnival feel to Jalan Segget with some musicians happily belting out requests to the crowd.

You can even sing your favourite songs in the street karaoke that occurs here and it is not unusual to find people dancing in the street to dangdut, Malay or Indian music.

Johor Shopping Outlets

JB City Square Shopping Mall

Johor Bahru is the second largest city in Malaysia and a very strategically important location with the close proximity of Singapore. As to be expected of a city of such high standing the Johor shopping outlets are both numerous in quantity and plenteous of goods.

Johor Area Rehabilitation Organisation

An interesting organisation for handicraft products is the Johore Area Rehabilitation Organisation (JARO). JARO is a registered charity organisation and the only NGO in Malaysia that provides jobs for the disabled. Its handmade products are sold in the JARO gift shop on Jalan Sungai Chat, at the Holiday Plaza and the City Square shopping malls.

The products available are high quality batik handbags with varied and unique designs, denim shopping bags, patchwork bed linen, soft furnishings like window curtains, coffee and tea warmers, quilted products, soft toys, cushions, rattan baskets & various book binding products.

I'm sure every discerning shopper would appreciate the quality of the JARO products and it gives you the 'feel good factor' when you know you have purchased something from an authentic charitable organisation such as JARO.

Sanrio Hello Kitty

Can Hello Kitty Really Be As Bad As Our Reviewer Has Opined?

Sanrio Hello Kitty Town Malaysia has certainly made a poor impression on this reviewer

Read this view and see if you agree, it seems there are two Hello Kitty camps with one very large vocal group adoring everything there is about this Japanese feline phenomenon, and, those like our reviewer here who thinks it leaves a lot to be desired. Which camp are you in?
