Not very smooth (24th Oct)

I had a meetup with my friends at JB last Saturday, suppose to meet my friend Caterine at Bukit Indah at 11am where Catherine will picked me up there as Catherine stays near Bukit Indah.   Then we will proceed to meet another friend Michelle.

I left my house at 8.45am, to give me ample time to reach my destination.  Just as i board the bus to takes me to Jurong East Interchange, i realised that i forgot something and i turn back to take the item i forgot.


(1) By the time i reached Jurong East Interchange, it's around 9.35am and i was surprised to see the queue for CW3/CW4 is quite long as i didn't expected so many people.


(2) The bus came, but i could not board as it was full, i have to wait for another bus, just as the 2nd bus came at about 9.55am, i manage to board the bus and lucky there's one last seat right behind, if not i will have to stand all the way from Jurong East Interchange to Tuas Checkpoint which takes about 20 mins.

After clearing Singapore checkpoint, i board the bus again to take me to Malaysia checkpoint, and at that time, i was hoping that there won't be long queue at Malaysia checkpoint as i saw quite a number of coaches going in to Malaysia.

When i was queuing up at Malaysia checkpoint for my passport to be stamped, what caught my attention was an Immigration Officer at one of the counter using earpiece.  Guess he's listening to music?

After clearing Malaysia checkpoint, it's around 11am, i walk towards the Causeway Link queue which will takes me to Bukit Indah.  The queue is so long that i start to panic as i was already late and also in my heart, i was hoping that i don't have to wait very long for the bus.  The bus came at around 11.15am, but it's so crowded that i could not board and have to wait for another bus which came at around 11.25am, and i reached Bukit Indah around 11.50am.  So pai seh to be late and makes my friend wait there.

Catherine is already there waiting, so we proceed to meet another friend Michelle for lunch (another post).  After that, Michelle has something on, so left Catherine and me. 

We proceed to Catherine house to pick up her daughter, then Catherine went to the workshop to collect the car (Catherine company car, Catherine job required her to travel around, so the company provide her with a car) that is there for servicing.  Catherine drove the company car home and Catherine daughter drove her car back home, then we proceed in one car to Sutera Mall. 


(3) While waiting, i saw this dog outside Catherine neighbour house and walk over to take picture.  I ask Catherine if the dog belongs to her neighbour but was told it's stray dog.


(4) Saw two puppies, one of the puppy, guess must be shy, saw me, walk away and hide under a car.


(5) Guess this must be the papa dog


(6) After reaching Sutera Mall, we jalan jalan there where we bump into another friend Serene who's sending her daughter there for classes.  Heard Catherine and her daughter discuss about a cuttlefish place, but we could not find the place and then Catherine daughter google and saw review that the cuttlefish was not that great.  We end up in Blackball having desserts (Photo credit to Catherine)  Serene joined us for chit chat too at Blackball before Serene picked her daughter after class and Catherine drove me to checkpoint where i walk one round at City Square where i saw some Halloween decorations (another post) before going back Singapore.

At first, i thought the journey will be smooth on a Saturday night, but was caught in a jam in the bridge between Malaysia and Singapore.
