The booking is done. We are set to go Here are some things to note:
1. Meeting point
will be at Serangoon Central, Block 261. Coach will be there along the road. Early birds can proceed to the coffeeshop for breakfast and kopi.

Those driving can park at Blk 253A MSCP. Free parking on Sunday, no gantry either.

2. Coach
Please be puncture/early. Coach departs at 6.30am (very tight schedule). The coach license plate no is PA5297 (Blue color, shd hv Superior Tour printed in front).

3. No food & Drinks
I was told, only plain water allowed to be consumed on the coach. Thus, it is advisable to have our breakfast beforehand.

4. AOB
Those who has insect repellent, may want to bring along. Fish farm and durian farm may have a lot of mosquito. I will bring a bottle, but that may not be enough for all.

5. Schedule
We are facing quite tight schedule, in order to insert some shopping time. So we need to try and watch our time. Ideally, if we can work according to the below time, we should be fine.

- 6.30am sharp : Coach departs Blk 261 Serangoon Central (please be puncture ya)

- 7.30am : Clear Johor custom. Likely head to Machap for breakfast (if we can settle our breakfast, we can skip breakfast time)

- 8.15am (latest) : Depart Machap (assuming no breakfast break but maybe toilet only) and head to Batu Pahat fish farm.

- 1030am : Arrive at fish farm. 1-1.5hrs at fish farm.

- 11.30am : Depart for durian farm (in Tangkak - approx 1.5hrs journey)

- 1.00pm : Reach durian farm. FEAST!

- 2.30pm : Leave farm, head back towards JB

- 4.30 (or 5)pm : reach JB for shopping (1.5hrs max)

- 6.30pm : Dinner (extra $7/pax for seafood)

- Return to Sg.

Please keep a look out in this thread from time to time. Any updates after 6pm on Friday (15/6) will be in AF/AFC as well as SMS. Please do help me by acknowledging SMS, if any, so everyone are aware of the same info.
