I want to go Larkin Sentral then to JB Sentral.
I know Woodlands is the best way.

However, I want try going by Tuas. so that I know how to go to Malaysia using both checkpoints.
Possible, if you've the time to spare.

CWL bus, from either Jurong East or Boon Lay, to JB 2nd Link CIQ. Then another bus to Larkin, then to JB Sentral.

Was there last sat... Need to queue for 10 mins only...


So have anyone tried??! Worth the queue?

I usually avoid city sq and komtar like the plague. Lol. Things there always cater to Singaporeans so more expensive. But I might drop by as a last stop after KSL/TC to buy food and snacks to bring back. I like to buy the crepe from city sq, usually will buy 2 or 3 back and eat one there. Even thou it's not crispy, it's also nice to to eat.

Original is more dense and got 2 layers of cheese for the cheese flavour. Ah ma is less dense and only 1 layer of cheese.

Did you get the Frozen Chocolate? I read from 8days they say it's nice.

Apparently that's the original one from Taiwan as well, together with Le Castella. The Ah Ma is Malaysian imitation.

I tired Original Cake.

I quite like the original flavour as it is very fluffy.
I did not really like the cheese flavour as there was not really not enough cheese.
The frozen chocolate is a bit too sweet at first bite and it become too bitter.

I will go back and buy more of Original's original cake.

Each individual stick has a label. So it is very easy for them to check whether it is a duty-paid one or not. Only a matter of whether they want to check.

https://www.moh.gov.sg/content/dam/m...%20Control.pdf

" In 2009, Singapore became the first in the world to mandate compulsory labelling of all Singapore duty paid cigarette with “SDPC” on the individual sticks. This move is a measure to visibly differentiate duty paid cigarettes from contraband cigarettes."
How about beer. If I buy 1 can of beer say $1 with 5% alcohol how much will I be charged? And pay after customs? If I pass customs they never stop me then no need pay?
