    M: ok, so wat is the basis of the tax? I mean why must tax?
    C: Things buy in S'pore, bring in M'sia, must tax ...
    M: u mean if I buy a car in Singapore, drive into M'sia, u are going to tax me?
    C: Er ... Yes ...
    M: <staring hard at her> Everything on me is bought in Singapore, inc my clothes. U are gg to tax me?

    its no use ... I heard b4 that such requests result in you going upstairs and pay more for the receipt ...

    ka-kia wants money, involves superior = more money ...

    after all they can issue receipt on those pupolar receipt books and stamp (M'sia Customs) ... next month, once receipt book is full, throw into the sea and buy a new one ...
