The opportunity came up to play tourist for a few days at the end of 2011 when hubby's niece decided to get hitched to a Johor boy and we decided to join the bride's entourage to Kulaijaya, Johor the day before Christmas. I kind of got an affinity with the State of Johor and had wanted to pay a visit there even for a short while if given the opportunity. My father was based in JB as a customs officer before I was born but since he decided to retire early and came home to KB and thus I didn't get to see the daylight of JB in Kg. Melayu Majidee to be exact.

Lain pulak adat dari negeri ke negeri...kalau di Kelantan kita panggil 'hantar menantu' iaitu satu rombongan akan hantar pengantin perempuan ke rumah pengantin lelaki dan di pihak lelaki pulak panggil majlis ini 'menyambut menantu'. Anyway it is interesting as its all about our rich malay culture that hopefully will be carried on by our future generations.
In Johor Bharu we didn't have time to play tourist because the eldest daughter was more interested in searching the locations for these...
