It would be interesting if Singapore annexed Johor, Johor Bharu is culturally pretty tied to Singapore as it is.

Are you referring to much of the central area, much of which is surprisingly forested, covered in flower farms and tropical fish farms? Like Bukit Timah way, around the reservoirs, Mandai/where the zoo is? Also the Tuas/western part of Jurong which is quite industrial. These areas are more sparsely populated. They have planning many more MRT lines, including one to Bukit Timah by 2015.
ANybody know the income disparity between Johor and Singapore?

Yes but I'm specifically asking about Johor. KL is extremely far away from Singapore. What I mean is, is the income disparity something along the lines of San Diego and Tijuana? Whereas the San Diego person lives on $50,000-$60,000 a year, that same exact person in Tijuana probably $15,000-$20,000 and they are right across the border from each other.

^It is not the case nowadays. Johor is now very expensive by Malaysia standard. THis is becoming the annex of Singapore. The LEGOLAND which was launched few years ago is becoming Johor biggest attraction. In the coming years, Johor will have its own marina.

Do you consider yourself MIXED when your mother is Singaporean Chinese and your father is a Malaysian Chinese and PRC/Mainland maternal grandparents and HK paternal grandparents? And you were born in Singapore?
