Friday has been declared a holiday and Singaporeans have been urged to stay in the country to celebrate the country’s 50th birthday.
But many have chosen to leave, saying they want to take advantage of the long weekend. (National Day falls on Sunday, so there’s a off-in-lieu on Monday.)
Worse, some have chosen to leave their loved ones behind while they go gallivanting with their friends in Johor Baru.
Ultra-friendly and super-safe Johor Baru.
Johor Baru, where they love our Singapore dollars but hate our guts.
Well, to each his own.
Getting stuck in traffic for hours just to take advantage of the weak Malaysian Ringgit is not my idea of fun.
