Just came back from JB and heard one of my friends kena saman for not wearing a black arm band to mourn the passing of Johor sultan. Another trick for those uniformed robbers to squeeze money from shoppers in JB.

Heard Octville and of couse RJCC closed as a sign of respect for the sultan but I also heard the mourning period will be 7 days. So if you guys are having any games next few days in Johor please call to confirm they are open before u set off for ur game.

Just a friendly warning..but better be safe ya? Very Happy

Tanjong Puteri affected or not?
What if they decide to close 'A' course as a mark of respect? Oh noooooooo...... bounce

Be safe those driving in alone...

Okay, does wearing red means a bad idea tomorrow ? Seems black clothes is more appropriate during the travel. Any thoughts ? Sounds silly, but I just want to minimize the possibility of problem going there...

non muslims were encouraged to wear black arm band as sign of respect and mourning. it was in the paper too. whether u wanna wear or not is up to you. I heard some ppl kena saman for not wearing. i dun see any enforecement fellas around at the mall. what's the point of enforcing. they should be mourning.. not catching ppl. ha ha

i was in jb whole day yesterday. did see a few fellas wear black arm band. but i would say majority 99.9% non muslims that i came across did not bother. So it is quite individual.

anyway. i wore all red yesterday because i know man utd were gonna whip hull city in the evening.

anyway. RJCC is open today. I just called. They were closed for one day, yesterday.
