We went to JUSCO TEBRAU on 23 Apr 2011(Sat) for shopping. The bus stop never be safe nowadays. For safety reason, we decided to leave early by taking bus from Jusco Tebrau to City Square at 5:15pm when the sky is still bright. There was a group of Malays at the bus stop. When we board the bus 2 Malay ladies ran in front of us to board the bus & pretend to ask the bus driver something actually their main motive is to block our way and make us stuck there to let them start their pick pocket on us. Another 2 push and force themselves hardly in between us, last 2 of them stand behind me. 1 of them I guess was mastermind holding black laptop bag stand side by side with me start shouting very loud in Malay. My guess: to ask their gang to act fast with their pick pocket business. At that time, I felt someone pulling my both side pockets and I shouted also. I can’t even move myself forward as the 2 malay ladies was not moving in at all. Luckily, my wallet & mobile phone got stuck in my pocket as my bermudas come with a deep pocket. The mastermind was holding his laptop bag in a way as if a knife was hiding below his bag. I panicked at that time, lots of wild imagination came into my mind and is better not to act rush then we will be sorry. They started to push us many times to get what they want. I tried to struggle harder to get up the bus and the mastermind used his laptop bag to block my way and pull my bag-pack backwards. When my friend saw that she pushed away the laptop bag and pull me up the bus. When we managed to move inside the bus, we start to check our belonging and my friend discovered that her purse was missing. She ran to the front of the bus and shouted at them at the bus stop “give me back my purse/wallet”? Not all the pick pocket gang board this bus only 2 to 3 of them. The mastermind also shouted in malay and start to take out his clothing and under-wear to show us his PENIS first AND turn to show his ASS, that was horrible scene to happen in a Muslim country(JB, Malaysia) at public place(bus stop). We also asked the bus driver for help but he ignore us. Since they are insane, no point talking to a beast which don’t know human right and shame. We didn’t suffer a big loss because we’ve finished dining and shopping in Jusco. The bus was crowded full of sitting passenger but none of them stand up to help, not even the bus driver who saw clearly what is going on……
I believe in the coming weeks, they will have good (pick pocket) business as next month Jusco is having great sales and Singapore is having long weekend holidays (labour day & election day). I really don’t want to see Chinese to get hurt from these beast/inhuman. I also pity those Chinese who work in Singapore and always go home during weekend and those living in JB. I do hope that all Singaporean not to take risk to shop there, we are not welcome in JB.
When we reached City Square, we approached the custom officer for help. So strange that they can’t even speak simple English so I asked a chinese lady who can speak malay to translate for us. Custom officer said we must go to the police station as they are not policeman, just a custom officer only, nothing they can do or help.
Gave me a “Big Shock”, they never consider this is serious, someone showed us his PENIS and ASS or it was very common in JB? I heard from somebody that the malay policemen won’t arrest their own race. This pick pocket gang is popular in JB and always wait at the bus stop during 5 to 7pm every evening. Oh, is a easy job to work as a policemen in JB, can’t speak English and not helpful can survive there – is unbelievable!! How the custom officer communicate with the foreigner visit JB if they can’t speak simple English. This is more then an excuse to me and reflected to us these custom officer were irresponsible. How to have JUSTICE in Government Sector(especially in uniform group e.g. Police, Immigration officer, etc) in JB, Malaysia or there is no such words “LAW & JUSTICE” exists at all.
Don’t think that there is lots of policemen go round City Square should be safe as they are custom officers only, doing nothing just walking around there. Not even help you or make phone call when you encountered mishap, even a minor mishap can have serious consequences.
Singaporean should STOP going JB for your own safety and cases has increases day to day. Please don’t be too confident that you will always the lucky one.
When you are waiting for bus at the bus stop, look out for a Malay man height 1.7m above carrying a black laptop bag and his face don’t look like a laptop user & not educated, look more like a gangster. Another 2 guys 1.55m to 1.6m, Malay ladies one of them wearing mini skirt, quite fat – ALL ARE MALAY(may be there is brown Indian, I’m not quite sure).
To Malaysia Police : If you think your country can survive with all these beast around then let it be, just wait for your monthly salary till your retirement time. GOOD LIFE!!!
