Chinese-Malaysian Wedding in Johor Bahru

i have rarely attended big weddings... come to think of it, i rarely attend weddings at all. this Sunday, hubby and i had the occasion to go to one in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

armed with a brand new GPS, we drove in the rain towards Johor Bahru, Malaysia to attend hubby's colleague's wedding

first off, we had to buy a proper GPS as the one from Google doesn't really work well giving cross-country directions. it was quite a challenge trying to find a good one here in Singapore. i guess most people don't really have the need for it with Singapore being such a small country.

it was quite a rainy drive on the way to Johor Bahru from Singapore. and there was heavy traffic jam crossing the border. we didn't realize so many people go to JB on a Sunday. but driving was so much easier going past the customs than when you are commuting. i remember having such a nightmare doing this when i went to Malacca by bus.

our cozy and well-lit bedroom for the night at Renaissance Hotel, Johor Bahru

we arrived at the Renaissance Hotel finally, after almost two hours, i think. it was quite a nice, new hotel. i especially loved the lighting. the swimming pool could be better though. our condo's swimming pool back in SG looks way better, in my opinion.

can't stop with the selfies

after taking a much needed siesta, we headed off towards the café at the ground floor level. the lighting here is impeccable too. it inspired me to take a lot of selfies and foodies. :)
