Actually hor, me driving for 24 years leow; got more than 10 years of me life driving LHD; infact i think got more mileage on the LHD than RHD, cos drive singapore mileage little, those LHD countries i drive in all big big 1. ...

Switching left and right drv hor, can be confusing. usually on highway no problem 1, but turning into smaller roads than confusion start; rule of thumb for me hor, keep reminding myself tht i must be closest to the centre divider ( thn the front passenger ).

but this time, i book vehicle with driver , dont 1 to drive, but later go AA take international lic, in case the driver tire than i take over.

Not necessary if you are coming in from Singapore
