Say No to Scratch and Win Scams Near City Square Mall

Despite banners warning commuters of scams been installed at City Square Mall (Johor) for quite sometime but there're still people, especially Singaporeans fallen for these Scratch and Win scams .

banners put up to warn of "scratch and win" scams near the CIQ

banner put up to warn of "scratch and win" scams near the bridge at Jalan Wong Ah Fook

I was almost a victim of such a scam when I was approached by two bubbly and slightly obese enthusiastic Malaysian ladies after my lunch at Jalan Wong Ah Fook last month.

Scammers operating at the bridge at the other exit of City Square Mall to Jalan Wong Ah Fook
(sample picture only, the persons in this picture are not the scammers)

They requested if I can help them to "tear away" their coupons as there's an ongoing electroncis exhibition fair promotion at the ground floor below and i stand to win some great prizes back home.

The 2 ladies have stood here very long for someone like myself  to come by and tear so that they can collect their commisions if I do not want to keep the coupons.

As expected the prize I've got is something like "Thank You ! Pls Come Again".

Thinking that is true ,I handed over the torn coupon to one of the ladies so that she can "keep her commissions".

The other lady then ask me if I can also help her to tear her coupon too. So I kindly accepted since I can't bear to see them standing there so long and she is very enthusiastic abouth her offer.
This time round I really "won" some great prizes like Mattress , TV and some electronic HiFi sets!

Thinking that I really won, I ask them where and how can I collect thses prizes as I lived in Singapore and its not easy to deliver these items home.

They told me i can just walk over to a place opposite this mall to collect my prizes.

Only then did I realised that it could be a similar scratch and win scam that i read in the Straits Times and the Channel 8 news. I declined their offer as I told them I need to do my shopping and carry on with some work.

They left me alone after much persuasions failed and I "fled" quickly.
Otherwise I will be at lest RM$3,500 poorer that day. ;(

*Note: they usually operate near the entrance of the City Square mall , after the pedestrian bridge from the Customs and Immigration Quarantine Complex (CIQ) .

Apply for faster MACS Malaysian Automated Clearance System

No More White Card...
No More Stamping...
No More Long Queues...
How Happy Am I  :)

Malaysian Automated Clearance System , in short MACS is a faster clearance alternative for those of us who likes to go into Malaysian for shopping or work.

I just paid an annual fee of RM$30 for faster clearance into Malaysia from today onwards!

Basically almost any Singaporean who wants to travel into Malaysia can apply.
Saw quite handful of few Ah Peks and Aunties appling for MACS yesterday!

Note: Now you do NOT need to be a business owner or a frequent traveller to qualify for MACS.

How to apply one for yourself?
Some basic simple steps that I took:
  1. Apply at the office on the 2nd floor of Bangunan Sultan Iskandar building (after alighting from SBS bus 160/170 , take escalator to 2nd floor, enter the office on your right )
  2. Smile at the last counter counter friendly staff. She'll direct you to fill out your "white card" and proceed to either MACS Lanes 17 or 18 to have your passport "stamped" for the one last time and come back to fill up the MACS form again.
  3. Fill up the MACS application form and submit your passport with your handsome or beautiful photo to the last counter on the right. (except that you can keep the other portion of the filled up "white card" with the dated stamp on it)
  4. Wait for about 15 minutes for the friendly staff to process your application and the payment counter staff on the left 1st counter will call out your name to make payment of RM$30.
  5. After collecting your receipt, wait for another 10 minutes to collect your passport with the new electronic MACS card attached to one of your empty page in your passport!
Note: waiting time is subject to the number applicants. My wait is considered relatively short becos' there is only less than 10 persons there, on a Monday noon 1pm

Click pictures below to enlarge:
    1) Proceed to the last counter on your far right to collect MACS application form (next to the standing banner) .
    Thereafter, the staff will inform you to fill up your "white card" and direct you to go Lanes 17/18 and have your passport "stamped" for the LAST time!
    2) Fill up the MACS application form and submit it with 1 of your handsome passport-size photograph
    Note: keep the other portion of your white card - my "stamp" is dated 20 JUN 2011
    3) After making payment 15 mins later at the 1st counter on the left most, the staff will issue you an official receipt in Bahasa Malay language - RM$30
    4) Collect your passport withte new electronic MACS card printed onto your passport.
    Pls check everything is okay before leaving

Blood Red Moon Total Lunar Eclipse on 16 June 2011 3am Singapore

Science Centre's all-night party to see blood-red moon

SINGAPOREANS will get to see a rare sight early on 16 June 2011 Thursday 3am morning: A blood-red moon.
The phenomenon is known as a total lunar eclipse, when the moon is completely hidden by the Earth's shadow.

The red light is caused by the Earth blocking the sun from the moon, so only red light from the sun reaches the moon's surface.The blood moon can be seen by the naked eye and does not require telescopes.

To celebrate the occurrence, the Science Centre is having an all-night party.
The free event will start at 11.30pm and feature outdoor movie screenings (Avatar, Transformers I & II),
talks by astronomy experts and telescopes to see the moon and other planets up close.
