Prevention is better than cure. In fact, less likely any cure can be found to be effective against COVID-19. At this rate, social distancing is very important. A sneeze or cough could have devastating impact to the surrounding.

Singapore buses will alight passengers at Woodland train station.



The reason to leave Singapore was due to expiration of visit pass. At Kranji MRT bus station, the usual crowd waiting for 170x and causeway link bus were all gone. I had to go to the opposite of Kranji MRT bus station for a bus.



Coronavirus pandemic is as scary as economic impact brought upon us all.

There is literally no bus at first causeway bridge. Walk to Johor Bahru Custom Immigration and Quarantine or take the train. Good thing about the train was passport checked by both countries custom before departs with KTM till reach Johor Bahru centre.



SGD 5 for one way train trip to Johor. An usual one way trip bus would probably cost you only 1 dollar or RM3.00.

One Singaporean had been rejected to Malaysia due to the movement control order. Likewise, Malaysian cant enter Singapore for any visit. In recent, Singapore does not impose any movement restriction but will not taking in any visitor with short term visit pass.

I have planned this trip even before the announcement of MCO. Today is the fourth day of movement control order due to the Coronavirus and I was not done it deliberately. I was desperately wanted to go Malaysia due to Singapore would fine me for staying longer than intended.



It took less than 4 hours from JB to KL. Less than 6 persons on board the bus and there is no resting time. Cost me RM35.00 one-way ticket to Kuala Lumpur Terminal Bersepadu Selatan.
