    few years ago, i used to go to places like pelangi plaza, jusco (permas jaya), southern mall (X-tra hyper-mart), Giant/Carrefour etc. but i found that the prices of imported stuff are not much different from singapore...although the prices of household and food-stuff may be cheaper in the M'sian supermarkets, the quality is generally lower than what you get in Singapore...

    I have stopped visting JB for at least 2 years already cos of the hassle and also the recent spate of crimes (heard many horror stories from friends/colleagues who are Johoreans and have bad experiences with snatch thiefs, burglars and robbers in JB)....also, should support Singapore retail industry mah...to help Singapore economy grow! haha..

    forget jb, head further North.


    With the cheap airfare, I decided to skip shopping in Msia totally and save the $$ for a bi-annual trip to Land of Thousand smiles

    Further more, if one can put a dollar value to the risk of being a victim in a crime in JB , I think it will be more value for $$ for shop elsewhere. At least, they will not threaten to cut water supplies whenever their gahmen not happy

    Agreed. They tend to aim Singaporeans and Chinese more
