Read this article today and I must say that I was a bit surprised and skeptical. Malaysia has been rated as the safest country in SouthEastAsia and 19th safest country in the world by the Global Peace Index (GPI). The first thing that came to everyone's mind must be "how about Singapore, how can Malaysia be safer than Singapore". It's quite a contrast to all the Singapore blogs and forums that we read before moving to Johor. There were talks about how unsafe Johor is, a guy even said that he's never been to Johor for over 20 years and he doesn't plan to go because of safety issues, hahaha what a douchebag. Well this latest rating is a good (even though I'm skeptical), but it's good for us who lives in Johor, I hope the government and police keep up the work and make it even safer to live.
