I visited Johor Bahru more than a week ago. There’s this new mall next to City Square Mall. It’s called Komtar. In there is a very atas (upmarket) supermarket.

During my journey, I spotted a government facility that was camouflaged in the midst of all the vegetation on the side of the expressway. Guess what made that camouflaged building so easy to spot?
