Bus Stop

by imran8852

Look at the bus stop...It has no sign, so you better make sure where you want to go or which bus you want to take! The good thing is that the bus driver will always let you alight somewhere to take another bus if you make the wrong choice...A sincere appologies and a thank's from the heart will always go a loooong way! Friends And Family

Gesturing.

by A2002

The Malays, Chinese and Indians consider the head to be a sacred part of the body. Do not pat a child on the head. Sometimes the parents are more relax about that.

When signalling someone to "come here", do not use the second crooked finger as it is a rude gesture or telling the person you are angry or worse wanting an argument or fight. Instead wave the four fingers of the right hand with the palm facing down. In Europe, I think this gesture is to ask someone to go away.

Pointing with the second finger is considered rude. To point , do it with the palm closed with the thumb resting on a fisted hand. Point with the thumb.

Mount Ophir / Gunung Ledang.

by A2002

Mount Ophir is 1,276m above sea level. It is the highest mountain in Johor. On a clear day, the outline of Sumatra can be seen from the summit. Gunung Ledang is part of an ecological rainforest considered to have one of the richest flora species in the world.

Here the locals get their groceries and some daily necessities.
Prices of fish and poultry are relatively much more cheaper here compared to the supermarket. Some S’porean also shops here.
