Pokemon Go Locations in Johor Bahru

Anyone here plays Pokemon Go? I am a Pokemon Go player as well, though I have little opportunity to play as I am at home most of the time, or I am driving. I only get to play during the weekend, whenever my husband is the one driving.

Here is my sharing on Pokemon Go hotspots in Bukit Indah, Nusa Bestari, Medini, JPO and JB town centre near CIQ.

Bukit Indah


This shot is taken at one of the main cross-junctions connecting Bukit Indah to Nusa Bestari. You can see the huge Bukit Indah roundabout and park at the background. It is a hotspot with many Poke Stops and one big Poke Gym. There is another Poke Gym next to the roundabout (not shown in photo), it is located at the Church of Praise.

Johor Bahru Town


This was taken at Kin Wah Coffee Shop, which is famous for its perfectly cooked half boiled eggs. It is located opposite the equally famous Hiap Joo bakery. You can see that there are many Poke Stops around town. The Poke Gym I believe is located at the CIQ. 



Here is the another view of JB town, this time taken from Komtar JBCC. Most of the Pokestops are located outside the shopping malls. The same Poke Gym is now on the left background of the screen.

Johor Premium Outlet


I was lucky that my husband decided to go to JPO last weekend. That means I can check out the Pokemon Go hotspots there as well :D

The Poke Gym is located at the main fountain area near the centre court. There are benches around the fountain area, now it is full of Pokemon Go players fighting at the gym. I caught my first Ghastly here in JPO.  

Medini


Here in Medini I am only referring to Mall of Medini and Legoland Malaysia. You can see that Legoland is full of Pokestops and Poke Gyms. 

I will need to make a Pokemon Go trip one day :D

Nusa Bestari


This shot is taken from the T junction traffic light, with Restaurant Habib on right and the same Bukit Indah Signage on background left. The Nusa Bestari commercial area itself is a Pokemon hotspot, with many Pokestops and two Poke Gyms. A slight correction on the Giant Poke Gym. It is not located inside Giant but further away, I believe it is a shrine.

When I have the chance to visit more areas in Johor Bahru then I will update again accordingly.

Tim McGraw - Humble and Kind

Lately I had a couple of long discussions with my husband on how to raise our children in this society. Are we giving priority to the wrong things? What about beliefs and values? We decided to give them some 'Life Rules' for them to follow. I was still contemplating what should I list down when I heard this song over the radio one day.  

The song is simple, yet lyrics are meaningful and beautiful. I hope one day I may also share this song with my children and explain the lyrics to them, so they will uphold these simple 'Life Rules' in society, which I feel is sorely lacking. We parents need to set the same example as well. 




This is some background on the basis this song was written by Lori McKenna, her reason resonates with why we are considering the Life Rules for our children :

Enjoy the music, enjoy the video.


You know there's a light that glows by the front door
Don't forget the key's under the mat
Childhood stars shine, always stay humble and kind
Go to church 'cause your momma says to
Visit grandpa every chance that you can
It won't be wasted time
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door, say please, say thank you
Don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie
I know you got mountains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you're dreamin' come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

Don't expect a free ride from no one
Don't hold a grudge or a chip and here's why
Bitterness keeps you from flyin'
Always stay humble and kind
Know the difference between sleeping with someone
And sleeping with someone you love
"I love you" ain't no pick up line so
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door, say please, say thank you
Don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie
I know you got mountains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When those dreams you're dreamin' come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

When it's hot, eat a root beer popsicle
Shut off the AC and roll the windows down
Let that summer sun shine
Always stay humble and kind
Don't take for granted the love this life gives you
When you get where you're goin
Don't forget turn back around
And help the next one in line
Always stay humble and kind
