The problem is not they don't want to change their display. It's their government one moment say have tax (be it GST, SST whatever the name lah), next minute say all removed, then replace with this new tax.
Wa lao so how to keep changing the bloody signboard? So they just stick a sticker or paper at the counter now to say have 6% SST.

It's a classic example of the consequences when a government keeps changing policies, or worse doing u-turns. It affects businesses, both big and small.

You take bus also need to go down and join the queue at the CIQ building. No difference from taking public bus other than you don't need to queue to board the bus. But if you take Transtar, you've no flexibility on timing unlike SBS bus. Usually bus is not bad lah, they got bus lane. Faster than the car.

If you're in a big group, can hire those JB Starex. They come and pick you from your house, the driver drive you to where you want to go. No need to get down from the car.

I usually take the blue MY Factory Bus (Bas Kilang), RM 2, instead of waiting/queuing for SG bus.
