Wanna go massage upper body only but all like offer full body which i dun wan as I'm having period and it gets very uncomfortable. Can recommend place near ksl for upper body massage?
You want Thai or traditional?

Spot on analysis about KSL Tesco, but honestly, it’s built for Singaporeans. Most, if not all, Malaysians I know do their groceries shopping at those huge standalone Tesco mega supermarket at Indah or Tebrau (either that or Giant or Aeon). The choice of selection is poor at KSL; the cable tie thing is a huge turn off but I think if you’re a Tesco member, parking is free if you spend above RM50.

Which makes me wonder how come there is no proper supermarket at City Square...
If I'm nearby KSL then go buy snacks lo. Coffee powder and bottled water always sold out fast. Last time city square have a mini mart but not many people frequent there hence up lorry.

You are right though that Johorean will prefer go other bigger hypermarket to do groceries. Too crowded in KSL, too little choice and no free parking for > 2 hours. Not to mention too many idiots any how park outside the mall.

So far, I have tried the dim sum near city square, da si xi, kak kak, gui yuan and a few others but gim cheng is still the best. Much better than swee choon, 126, mongkok, yum cha etc in sg

And recently they redraw the lines on the roads surrounding KSL, making curtain roads one way and stuff, now it’s a mess- every Malaysian cars also anyhow left turn, right turn, U turn. So if you’re driving around the area, be careful.

Parking price not so much an issue for me, not matter how expensive, still cheaper than Singapore malls or even HDB. It’s the availability of lots- time is precious, already spent hours queuing to stamp passports sometimes, last thing I want is to queue to enter car park and then have to wait another 30 minutes for a lot.

There's now the Komtar JBCC mall linked to City Square via the overhead bridge, with its own parking which I once had to walk through to get to the other end where there's a supermarket (decent size bigger than City Square's) and foodcourt.
Sounds like a plan. I’ll try to visit there the next time I’m in Johor Bahru and park at JBCC, maybe pay Marks & Spencer a visit and jalan jalan abit and see what’s new at these two malls.

About 10-20% cheaper the last time I visited which was about slightly more than a year ago. I bought some coffee beans, biscuit and fizzy drinks.

No bakery though, so still have to visit Lavender for bread.
