Eh bro,

Did you forget the stolen car which was a Mitsubishi Colt at Ah Koon fisballl (I think near Permas Jaya area)? That is a small car and yet it got stolen. I believe it's the valuable stuffs that was exposed that attract attention for car thieves. pale

I guess using some common sense also helps. Don't park your car in a dark alley, don't leave your bags in plain view, don't attract attention by pretending to be part of the 2LiveCrew when you drive in etc. Keep it simple. No probs Smile

yeap...that is why I will normally 'complain' about my lousy clubs where all good shots are used us...the moment I drop bag. I also keep my voice down and be extremely humble.... and treat all with respect and don ah chee ah chor with the local folks there. and I am sure all of us do.

From public advice, when parking your car in JB, park it head in and turn the steering to one side to make it difficult for the truck to tow if they decide to steal your car. Smile Laughing

Hi Fred,thats what I do everytime I go in for golf or shopping with my family. But I had a big headache at the beginning of this year when my car could not start at all and the steering lock freezed with the wheels turned to the side. Very huge logistic problem as Malaysian tow truck can only tow your car to the middle of the Causeway and then to be picked up by the Singaporean tow truck. IN the end, I decided to just asked the Benz tow truck to tow it to the Malaysian Distributor and also had my Servicing done at the same time. What a big headache for me then. But this does not deter me from practicing this head in, turned wheel to one side thingy whenever I need to park in the whole of Malaysia.

Hi David,

How's things with you? Yes, but my problem is I can advise but never follow own advice. Am looking forward to our next game. Meanwhile my boss is in town for the next 2 weeks so may not be able to play weekdays. Sad

simple, bring your own wheel clamp, steering lock and lastly if more kiasu, bring marine chain and chain up the whole car.

Yes. if you still have no balls to drive in with your car, just carry your own bag and take public transportation to the golf course.

Then it will be 200% safe!

But then again, be prepared with second hand balls.just in case you are afraid that.the caddies in Johor will steal your new balls.

Remember to bring your lousy clubs, the bag drop area may be tempted to steal one of your new clubs.

One more thing, don't put your floggings into the locker, the attendant may use the master key and steal your underwear.

Come to think about it, better not play in Malaysia.....

Haha, Singaporean golfers are blessed to have Malaysia hospitality so close by. Without it I doubt there would be as many golfers in Sg as there are now, most might not even have had an opportunity to play on a course
