My HOmetown

I stay in Kluang, Johor. Kluang is just a small town but for me its really nice town. I guess you guys know about kluang railway station right? This great place are known not only in Malaysia but also Singapore. Let me share with about this great place.

Before i begin my story, . This is simply introduction about this small and unique town located down south of Malaysia. Here it comes…

The name Kluang derives from the Malay word ‘keluang’ which means a type of flying fox or rather a type of fruit bat. These used to be plentiful in the district decades ago. They have almost completely disappeared due to the combination of hunting and destruction of their natural habitat. I was told by a local friend that pictures of bat can still be seen on road signages and boards. 

Kluang is a town located roughly in the middle of the state of Johor in Malaysia. The population of Kluang district is considered small but has now exceeded 250,000 residents with more than half are centralized in the town itself

Kluang Railway Station
One of the charming places to visit in Kluang is the Kluang Railway station. The railway is surely the main highlight of this town as it cuts the town into two halves when the train passes through Kluang town. This will lead to temporary closure of the road to the town for the the train to pass. It is a common saying among local residents 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.

Not only about the train station people are talking about, but also about  their coffeeshop which is really famous with charcoal fire-toasted buns and traditionally roasted coffeeIt is widely claimed that the famous coffee shop at Kluang Railway Station, serves the best coffee in Malaysia (plus the shop’s specialty “Roti Bakar” - toasted bread with half boiled eggs). This local dish is available for breakfast between 7.00am and 12.00noon and for afternoon tea between 2.30pm and 6.00pm. The coffee shop now has expanded into franchise business and more outlets are available in major cities including Kuala Lumpur. 

You know what, this is place that I will go 3 times a week just only to buy their damn good toasted bread..huhuhu

Below are some photo that I can share with you..

  Up there Is 2 marvelous stuff that you must try if u have been in Kluang…coffee and toasted bread.
I think everybody know the "O" in kopi-O means coffee without   milk but I think people will baffled by the word kopi-OO on the wall menu inside the quaint Kluang Railway Coffeeshop in Kluang.
This leads to a guessing game about what it means and to put the matter to rest, Actually kopi-OO means coffee without milk or sugar. So when you come to this stall make sure that you recognize the menu first before you make an order..hihiiii =)
This shop is located at Railway Station. Open from 6.30am to 12.30pm and from 2.30pm to 6pm daily except Thursdays.
So make sure guys if you have been in Kluang don’t forget to step on feet here cause if you don’t do so im sure you will regret..
Psssttt.. I heard that the owner of this shop us their home-made kaya for the toasted bread, so wonder  la if their toasted bread taste like a heaven!!    ^^
