SINGAPORE: For many years, Singaporeans have escaped their country’s oppressive crime-free cleanliness, and endless queues by fleeing to neighboring Malaysia. In a friendly ‘tit for tat’ response to Singapore’s Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) for Malaysian cars, our government will introduce a long-awaited RM20 entree fee for Singaporean vehicles entering via the causeway.
“Why does Malaysia want to charge me RM20 to visit?” a Singaporean grumbled, “I was going to complain it’s over eight Singaporean dollars until I remembered the low ringgit makes it only six.”
“I will still visit Malaysia,” said another Singaporean, “being robbed at the causeway instead of in Johor like I normally am will take some getting used to!”
“How can any cool Singaporean be seen in a place with a six dollar cover charge?” a hipster complained, “If anyone I knew saw me in Malaysia now, I think I would die of shame!“
