Imagine spending Saturdays or Sundays having Mi Rebus Haji Watusi or Nasi Sambal Goreng at Hajjah Maimunah for lunch, catching up with long lost relatives all over the island in the afternoon, and heading home for KL in the evening.

On the downside though, hope this does not open the gates for the flooding of FTs from Singapore into Malaysia!
