It is heartening to note that many dance studios in the state of Johor are helping to promote dancesport. Last month on August 24, the MPDC Malaysia Open Dancesport Championships 2008 was held at the Grand Sea View Restaurant in Batu Pahat.

For the competitors who are going to Muar to take part in the 1st Muar Rising Star Dancesport championships 2008 or spectators going to watch the competition, do not miss the opportunity to partake in the seafood for which Muar is famous for. Their asam fish head, oyster omelette and otak otak is really out of this world and something to die for! A friend in Muar has recommended that I try Merlin Restoran (Asam Pedas) in Taman Orkid, Jalan Bakri, Muar. Bon Appetit!

Good Luck,
