With the recent appreciation fo SGD$? Everything!! Hahaha

I'd usually head for movies or clothes shopping! Their branded jeans tend to be slightly cheaper than in SG, so now's as good a chance as any!

Hello~ You might want to read this!!!! It helped me a lot especially because I don't live near the causeway so if I do make a trip it had better be worth it! :-)

I would say, almost everything due to the exchange rate, from kitchen towels, toilet rolls, snacks, milk powder, shampoo, apparels, cafe dining, to even health supplements.

Only thing that I'm aware is, Ferrero Rocher chocolates aren't that cheap in Malaysia, usually a box of 24pcs sells at around SGD$13.90~$15.90 but In Malaysia the price should be around RM$40+, you can get a better price when Singapore is having promotion.

Movies, massages, food are the common ones. Bags as well, if you are not particular about brand.
