WELCOME TO MY JOHOR JOY BOOK!

Keeping it light & easy...

My Johor Joy Book celebrates great people, good food, happening events, and exciting places. It's written by a true-blue Johorean who has been residing in the city and never really left! 

Most of the postings here are from Johor Bahru and Iskandar Puteri - the two cities are part of Iskandar Malaysia, a special economic corridor that was formed in October 2007.  For more than a decade now, the area has grown by leaps and bounds.  

Please sit back, relax, and enjoy the postings. All postings are organic and more to sharing-basis.


All views and opinions expressed in the articles are personal and those of the author.
