Grab cheaper than rent car. Car of course more convenient.

$$$ vs convenience i guess.
Rent car not really more convenient..
especially in JB .. I'm paranoid that someone will smash window to steal things....

Grab
launch app, reach in 5mins, give destination, drop .. repeat.

Car
Grab trip to rental shop, rent car, on gps, go destination, find parking (this is a pain)... repeat.
Refill petrol, return car, Grab trip back to custom..


- Grab slightly more ex if you take a lot of trip, but a lot more convenient.

I expect the total cost of the fans would be more than SGD$100. Then just rem to file for GST before returning to SG.
I thought if value more than SGD400 then need to declare GST?

If you stay in JB for 48 hours and longer, then yes $400.

If you stay in JB less than 48 hours, is S$100.

DL the apps Custom@SG. Stated clearly inside.

You do the calculation before decide lor.
All these are big items.... very eye catchy lor.
If custom officer ask anything to declare, then say fans, show him the official receipts. Wait for next instruction.

I've seen people at the tax counter and office, but don't know paying GST or GST + fine (for not declaring).

Yes, have read of people not declaring and got fined in the event. TBH, I'd rather pay GST than get caught and fined as well.

These fans are so big, very easy for them to estimate even if you just try to walk through...

Can, my father in law did it before with his RM3000 Sony TV a couple of years ago. Ask the Courts staff to remove the box and packaging and plastic wrap it.
