Went on a short trip to Malaysia yesterday.
3. All retail stores in the mall is having a no plastic bag day every Saturday which happens to be the day I visited. Which is fine as I totally supports it. I wish Singapore will actively practice this as well.
4. At a video store. Was quite surprise that an anime DVD such as the one above cost only RM12.90, less than S$6. In fact even a full season of 12 -24 episodes TV anime also cost the same price. While relatively new movie DVDs cost from RM29.90 to as high as RM69.90. Not sure how come movies can differ from such a huge range? Maybe different distributor different pricing?
Most importantly, was taken aback the anime DVDs in Malaysia cost cheaper than movies. Isn’t it always the case anime cost an arm and leg? That is why anime isn’t sold in Singapore anymore. No one in his right mind will spend good money on a DVD with only a few anime episodes.
9. Dragonball and Naruto manga for only RM3. only about S$1+. I miss the days where we can enjoy cheap manga. Singapore just rise it’s manga price to S$6.50 per book which is ridiculous. They will never get any business from me again.
Note the no photography sign on it? I took a couple of photos in other shops and nobody stops me. Malaysia seems to be more relaxed in the taking pics in shops rule as compared to Japan and Singapore. Once, I even got shouted at when taking pics at a shop in my neighbourhood.
In Singapore, if you want to take a pic inside a shop, do it discretely. No point asking whether you can take a pic as the store clerk will most probably say NO. When you ask them what’s the reason behind no photography, they can’t answer you anyway. Probably they want just want to stay out of unnecessary trouble should anything happens or they afraid you post bad things of them online?
13. The bus that we to took across Singapore/Malaysia’s borders. The driving skill of the Malay bus driver’s who drove us home is awesome, he drive fast and smooth. Unlike the often stop and halt suddenly bumpy rides of Singapore public buses.
