Selamat Datang ke Batu Pahat / Selamat Jalan

Once upon a time, when driving into Batu Pahat along Jalan Kluang, you do not see much on your left or right. It’s fairly dark at night until you reach where you turn into Jalan Bakau Condong, where the mosque is on the right. There, you see the beautiful white lights of the minarets.

But since December last year, you know you have reach Batu Pahat when you see a big Selamat Datang ke Batu Pahat neon lights.

BP Town has expanded quite a lot these few years. This place used to be so ulu ulu, now it’s no longer.

Of course if you are leaving Batu Pahat at night, you see the other side of the overhead bridge with Selamat Jalan. Pandu Cermat.

These lights are part of the advertisement of Batu Pahat Mall. Quite fancy fancy leh…. With lights like these as well.

For those who have been away for a long time, when was the last time you came home?

    Wow! Beautiful……..

    The Pesta area was called ‘Coconut Plantation’ a long time ago & there was an electric generator plant that used a big diesel engine to churn out electricity for the area. My earliest memories were those of playing amongst the coconut trees and the white sands on the ground. Sometime, I would sneaked into the generator plant for a look-see.

    This area had changed so much. Is the Pasar Malam still around?

    You mean the Pesta Pasar Malam, it still happens every Saturday evenings without fail.

    This latest mall in Samchoon attracts lots of visitors (read: customers) from Kluang, competing directly with Carrefour. As a matter of fact, you will find many signboards in Kluang pointing the direction to Carrefour in Batu. As a direct result, the only decent-sized hypermarket in Kluang, Senyum, closed show recently. I guess the lights in Batu are brighter, especially the shopping and the food, both hawker and restaurant. I feel a little sad for Kluang, as it is the domain of my better half. I would imagine many Muar people are flocking to Batu as well.

    As of today many coconut tree areas in BP is gone, but only left a few sports along the way from Rengit to Pontian. You may see there within the Kampung’s.

    Coconut plantation can be found along Jalan Parit Botak near Senggarang.
