CIQ how to - from Pelangi

from Pelangi to Johor Bahru town ... keep left and turn left ...
there is only 1 lane in front ... the middle lane to Skudai/Senai
with traffic lighs and on ur right is a U-Turn to CitiPlaza/
Citibank/Pelangi/Kota Tinggi
2 arrow mean 2 narrow road to Woodland on ur left ... keep
left but not leftest left ... just left ... on ur right .. 2 huge lane to
Stulang Laut or The Zone (Duty Free Zone) to U-Turn, follow the
Woodland signboard but keep right on the traffic light
the bridge on ur right is to Stulang Laut/The Zone/Duty Free Zone
 u keep left to woodland .. leftest left is to Stulang Darat or to
Permas Jaya .. or to Pelangi also can ... actually to The Zone
also can...just to give u some idea lah ...
1 car lane ... 1 bus lane ... yes .. only 1 lane .... RTFM !
motorcycle has their own lane ...on the left ... car lane middle..
bus lane on the right...
 this is car lane ... notice the car in front .. on ur right is bus lane..
on ur left .. after the divider is the motocycle lane...
here .. u can do U-Turn back to JB Town/Skudai/Senai/
Pelangi ..but i have no idea how yet ... because notice a van from
ur leftest left that car is from Stulang Darat to JB town/Skudai/
Senai/Pelangi .. i think u can do a U-Turn provided there is no
BUS obstructing ...
 go straight when the traffic light hits green .. duh ...
notice on ur left .. that;s the motorcyle lane ... become narrower
now ..and on ur right, notice a car waiting at the traffic light ..
 that's the car from woodlands going to Permas/Stulang Darat 
direction ...
 at this point ... i think u still can do a U-Turn back to JB town/
Skudai/Senai/ Pelangi/Permas... if.. no bus from ur right is
obstructing ... i think let me try 10 more times .. then i'll
confirm again ...
 CIQ just in front ...
 going down to basement ... 3 ZONE ... i got no idea what is
ZONE stands for ... anyway ... take the middle one ...
(my personal tips)
watch out for speed BUMPS !!! it's about 3inch high and very
sharp and narrow ... it will snap ur absorber if ur driving a cheap
car no pun intended ... i think my dashboard just dropped a cm ...
i've stopped by and ask the officer here .. if i can take picture
of the lovely new CIQ .. he say yes i can ... so below picture are
with permission frm the officer above ....
anyway .. there is no signboard saying no PICTURE OR VIDEO
 here's the ZONE B look ... on ur left is ZONE C and right is
ZONE A ... anyway ... i heard there are about 30 booth here
so everything will be as smooth as silk ..
bear in mind .. malaysian passport holder ... u can no longer wave
your red color passport ... all tom dick and harry need to surrender
ur passport to be scanned .... so... expect ... JAMMM lah ..
 after clearing the CIQ ... get ready to pump some juice out of
your engine ...... brake check .. tyre check ...suspension check ...
we're going to mini sepang ...
 hairpin right ... yes you idiot .. HAIRPIN RIGHT !!!
 i told ya ....
need alot of juice because we're going uphill !
 HAIRPIN LEFT !!! brake brake .... we're going downhill
 steady steady .... HAIRPIN RIGHT !
 after the downhill hairpin right .. u'll be merged with BUSSES
watch out for BUSSES .... u don't dive in the corner with them...
the corner is as tight as a virgin .. no lube can get u out of the
corner with BUSSES .....u'll just get caugh and i'll see u at the
hospital and ur car will be totalled ....
 on ur left...Jalan Lumba Kuda ... if u read my blog below u'll know
this road name ... as usual .. RTFM!
that's the famous Old Cathay Laksa ... today Monday
they are OFF
 that's the scenic bridge ... how i wish the project to be continued ..
so that i do not need to practice WRC everytime to woodland ...
 i wonder the camera are for ? lookout for accident ?? i think so...
because on a very tight 2 lane ... if a car breaksdown ...
expect 3 hours of JAM i've been in that situation ... u better hope
and pray ur bladder is empty... bloody empty and ur bowel is
sooo fine  .....else ... u'll need to go figure ... real hard ....
unlike singapore CIQ.. there are 1 temporary toilets ...
@ woodlands right lane, in between lorry and car lane 
and tuas u have 2 temp toilets
.. yes ... i'm bloody observant ... i'm vigilant ... of cos i bohausiaw
downhill ... keep ur legs on the brake pedal ... tab a bit ... and
not to rest on it .... u'll smoke ur brake pad ...then u'll end up at
 the ...divider .. where else ...
the last HAIRPIN LEFT DOWNHILL !
 ... i wish ur tyres still have the rubba ....
after the long and twisted corner .. ur back to the old customs
check point ... hurray !!! the causeway bridge welcomes u back ...
Note: No pun intended, just to make the whole jurney more interesting
but facts is facts ... picture shows u the real thing with date stamp hor..
just to let u know what's ahead .... plan ur journey wisely ...
if u cannot take the heat ... use Second Link ....
tips above are very very usefull for the lady driver ...
