  • @j3j3j3 Actually just to share ha? Wala ko personally kilala but workmate ng kakilala ko or kilala lang nya ata eh ganyan. Works in SG but lives in JB. Ang sabi he wakes up at 4am mag ready for work tapos nakakauwi sya around 11pm. I am just not sure kung gano ka accurate yan kc dko naman alam san work nya dito sa SG so dko rin alam ang distance sa immig. But at least you will have an idea. Weigh things lang mabuti pero I guess talagang mapapalaban ka sa travel time and pagod talaga. Possibility talaga yan na you need to wake up very early and uwi ng late. If you think na worth it yun sa savings mo then go for it. But as for my own personal opinion, ayoko hehe! As much as we want to really save more isipin mo kung magkasakit ka naman dahil manghihingi na ng pahinga ang katawan mo, worth it pa rin ba? Health is wealth pa rin :)

    totoo yung sabi ni @PinkPasta
    posible yan at pwede din naman, I know someone personally na ginawa yan 8years ago ata, at personally naka punta ako sa inuupahan niya sa JB. Ang masasabi ko lang eh hindi siya tumagal sa ganyang setup at after ko din masubukan eh I would not recommend it. To put it simply ang biyahe mo araw araw ay min 3 hours one way, that is kung ang work mo eh central, east, west, downtown Sg area. Siguro kung ang work mo eh sa Woodlands or Tuas area eh you can cut it to 2.5 hours na biyahe one way.

    Bottomline minimum 6 hours of your day ay sa commute between home and work lang. Kapag na saktuhan ka pa ng traffic sa causeway eh baka maing 8hrs pa yan. Not worth the health and mental impact.

  • paano magawa ng pinoy yan? ano po maging visa ng pinoy sa malaysia?
  • @j3j3j3
    While is possible that you can lives/rent in JB, as tourist. As a pass holder, you must update MOM 2 weeks of changing your home address, or you could be penalised.How can you explain your JB address? anyway diskarte mo na yan, marahil masaya ka sa JB, at okay ka sa long journey or mas cheaper ang expenses doon. As for me, more than three hour journey would be extra-ordinary act.
  • While this idea will save u money in some ways, you'll end up burning your self physically and mentally. Parang i'd rather work 2 jobs and live nearby than do this. Of course bawal po dual jobs sa SG.
  • I have heard some of those Johor to SG workers, even students travelling daily. Kung wala kang choice then so be it, lahat naman nadadaan sa sipag at tyaga lalo na kung me pangarap sa buhay at pamilya.

    Maybe you just need to adjust your budget to the most economical way to stay and work here in Singapore.
  • Hi mga kabayan. Nako sobrang thanks sa response ninyo. Really appreciate it. Yung work ko kasi work from home lang. kaya naisip ko di ko masyado ma experience yung travel time pag need lang magpunta office siguro or refresh ng visit pass ng Malaysia which is i guess yung magiging concern ko din. Ganon po kaya iyon? Na rerefresh every entry or di po kaya ma question sa immig bakit parot parito? Curious lang po ako kasi gusto ko din maka save since work from home naman po ako mga kabayan. Any comments and suggestions po ma aappreciate ko. Again maraming salamat po
  • wala pa sigurong gumagawa ng ganyan kaya wala pang makapag share ng exp.

    magkano ba matitipid mo kung sa JB ka uupa? may kakilala kaba sa malaysia?

    well para sakin yes mas mababa ung rent, pero ung safety dito sa SG medyo lamang compare sa JB.
    pag lumabas ka doon, nakakatakot na :)

    bat dikanalang humanap ng room sharing dito.. na mababa ang upa..
  • don't do it haha been there done that, masasawa ka sa checkpoint eventually, lalo ka kung peak time..never gain heheheeh.
  • Hi po @Suddenly_Susan if work from home po mam tingin nyo po ano drawback po. Thanks po sa insight. :)
  • @j3j3j3 kung work from home, sa bora ka na lang..

    @j3j3j3, bakit di ka na lang sa Pinas. Kung work from home, gaano kadalas ka ba expected na pumunta ng office? 1x/week, 2x/month, 1x/month, quarterly?

    Iniimagine mo kasi na pag katawid mo ng causewaway eh 10minutes na lang eh nasa bahay ka na. Yung mga affordable na rentals sa JB eh 30mins to 1hr travel time pa mula sa JB central. At sobra dami tao kapag rush hour.

    hassle talaga, para kang nagwor-work sa Makati at uuwi ng Pampanga at the end of day tapos holy week season. Plus 2x ka bababa ng bus para dumaan ng immigration, kahit sa automated counter eh may pila.

    How much pala expected mo matipid if dun ka? kung $500 a month ang expected na matitipid ko siguro worth it. Pero anything less tapos daily ang commute is just insane.
