This morning, we drove across the border to attend a special ride in support of children with special abilities. 7 of us packed into a car and endured both countries' immigration checkpoints. On a Saturday; still a working day for some commerce, the start of a weekend for Singapore and the end of a weekend for Malaysia; we bore the worst brunt of traffic congestion!
Going into Singapore, we joined the morning office, rush hour traffic. It took us 1.5 hours to arrive at our destination.
Returning was worse! We queued at lengths at both countries' immigration. The Singaporeans were leaving the Republic for the start of their weekend while the Malaysians were returning home, in preparation of the new work day, a Sunday! We sat in the car for 2.5 hours!!!
Kudos are given to Malcolm Chen of Ageless Bicyclists, Grace Orchard School, teachers and volunteers for their dedication in spearheading this special program, implemented since 2015.
