Do you think it'll be safe?
Depends on which side, and if there are lots of foreign/construction workers nearby, and osos haw beeg is yr group of able-bodied (and can fight) guys.
eh ... but yoush ees toking bling moller der, or go der for Mysian organised moller hoot?
best not to be alone
go in a group will be safer imho
size of the group & person concern does not make the odds better- being safe. in a foreign land. how well does everyone in that group know each other, this determines/guages how a member will react under duress. in a loose group, my guess is that each individual reacting differently puts the whole group at risk. the grouping of lux cars travelling in convoy did run into trouble along the way not too long ago, safety in numbers?
then bringing the topic of familiarity to the location itself, JB isn't small, which part of JB is it? how un/safe a place can be depends on luck (or element of chance/probability). being somewhere at the wrong time, wrong place makes a world of difference. even in Sg, oso got daylight robbery.
to Redstone, wad safety measures have you taken? don't forget Murphy's Law.

Just give JB a miss guys its lawless aka 'bo cheng hu'. Not worth the trouble.
if going with groups ( more than 10 persons), ask everyone to bring tripods, see who scare who lor.

dont listen to the above people lar. waste of time one listen to them.
bus will crash, taxi will crash, you will die from drinking milk...see....you cant escape death.
go go go go
Its not those street muggers that you should be afraid of, its the organized crime. The gangsters have many resources at their expense, you have car they have lorry, you have people they have more, you have tripods they have guns. So do anything at your own risk.
avoiding trouble is much better than having to fight your way out of it, and in that respect awareness and the ability to read your surroundings and the people in it are every bit as important as the ability to fight.

One time we booked an armoured car to go to JB to shoot models, nothing happened to us.

the 400 f2.8 would make quite a hefty baton.
you could of course set your flashes to maximum output when the 'pilot flashing'. You would then have a very good blinding equipment before you strike him with the lens.
There are 3 types of people in this world. One that can count, and one that can't. :sweat:
