Assalammualaikum and Hi there!
We were on our road trip balik kampung again! Yes! We had a wedding invitation way back in Batu Pahat and we decided to extend the whole trip since we’re having a long weekend due to Christmas. What a coincidence. Did I mentioned how we love the public holiday so much!
On our way to the wedding, FF decided to reroute our original plan by stopping by in Kluang. He really wanted to try the original Kluang Rail Coffee and here we are. I guess, the last time I was there is somewhere way back during my university era. And that was 6 years back? Wow! Kluang really developed into a bustling town since my last visit. I can see a lot of new shop lots, malls and others around. Oh ya, not to forget, they have McDonald’s now!
The business hours. We were there somewhere around 11.30am and we thought we only have 30 minutes left. At that point of time, we guess we could make it by swallowing everything that we ordered. We waited till 12 noon and they didn’t chased us out. The business run as usual. I guess, they don’t have any break on Saturday and Sunday (it’s just my assumption).
FF with his coffee. Muka puas hati gile while waiting for his bread and half boiled ayam kampung eggs. I guess we compliment each other. I love to see and learn new thing around meanwhile he’s really into food. He made me tried a lots of food all this while. Pantang je dengar ada orang cakap tempat nie best, there we go!
Check out the delicious toast bread. Melting butter and kaya! Oh my!
On the way to the station, we saw the brand new branch of Kluang Rail Coffee at the new developed shop lots. But i guess, most of the them who came over and over again preferred the one at the Railway Station. I guess, we just love the authentic atmosphere and feeling right. A cup of coffee and the sound of train passing by. The best! Oh ya, i guess no one should miss this local dish which available for breakfast and also in the afternoon.
Right after that, we walk around the old railway station. As for me, at that point of time, my view is definitely RUSTIC, OLD and VINTAGE.
One of the charming places to visit in Kluang is the Kluang Railway station, in service since 1915. Like nearby Sungai Mengkibol, the railway passes through Kluang town, basically cutting it into two halves. As the road to the town is temporarily closed for the train to pass, local residents once said that when the trains approach Kluang Railway station, the entire Kluang town stands still. The station itself withstood the test of time and should be of interest for those who have passion for nostalgic photographs.
There goes our one hour Super SHORT trip to Kluang.
