There’s a number of pharmacies at Plaza Pelangi. Have you tried Guardian or Watson?
Scrap that, I think you’re better off buying this item in Singapore.

I'd advise you to go to the JB customs by 3pm, latest by 4pm. I always used to go at 6pm last time, usually takes around 2-3hours (once I waited almost 3.5-4hrs) to clear customs and take the bus etc compared to around 1h at 4pm. If you go before 3pm it will take half hour-ish. So it is up to you whether you feel it is worth it to stay the additional 2-3hrs but I would seriously not recommend it. You will see the line has literally hundreds of people in front of you, and alot of aunties/uncles will push and "merge" into your lane.

One night stay shd be ok right. Their price is really low now
Puteri always hosts political gatherings and events. The price is low now I think because of two reasons, firstly December not many rallies or events, and secondly because they are undergoing renovations (pipe maintenance) etc I think. I stayed there last Monday and it was horrible, no hot water & murkey yellow water because of the maintenance. The hotel says it is only temporary because of the piping issues but who knows how long it will last, especially since you will probably be going there soon.

Nice info return Looks like best time is reach JB CIQ before 4pm or after 8pm. Anything in between, better stay in the mall then Q long long.
