Overnight in Bagan Myanmar

Part of my travel to Myanmar was the overnight trip to Bagan in the central region of the country. To reach there I took a night bus trip from Yangon. I arrived Bagan in the early morning. The hotel I will be staying was located at the Old Bagan where the thousand pagodas and ancient temples are located.

My Trip to Myanmar


After years on my bucket list, I finally was able to travel to Myanmar this year as my birthday gift to myself. It was a smooth and eye opening experience for me.The reason I keep delaying my travel before because of the visa and the frequency of the flight to Myanmar from Singapore issue. Even when traveling to Myanmar has ease up, still travelers were required to apply a visit visa before one can visit the country and airlines flight schedules were limited to twice a week only. I am holding a Philippines passport, and when we were allowed to travel visa-free then I decided to grab the opportunity soonest as I am curious to see Myanmar at its present situation. I read about Myanmar and become curious and anxious to find out the effect of its isolation from the rest of the world.

The Peri-Peri Chicken of Nando’s


I thought it was just ordinary grilled chicken, so when my friend/ colleague told me to try having lunch at Nando’s  I just  say yes but did not take the initiative to seriously go for it.
But yesterday while I was in Johor Bahru and cannot decide what to go for lunch, it cross my mind to locate Nando’s at City Square Mall just outside the CIQ Complex. Despite of numerous visits to the mall I have no idea where it is located. So I keep going up and coming down to locate the restaurant.  Finally I decided to go to the basement and just go for Japanese sushi. Alas Nando’s is also at the basement and situated in a concealed corner.

So how’s the food?
