JB In State of Mourning – Shopping Centres not Opened…

People who wanted to do some Chinese New Year shopping in Johor Bahru, please do read the following.
 
Sultan Iskandar Ismail had passed away yesterday, thus the Johor Bahru state is in mourning. Shopping centres like City Square are all not opened for business…
 
If you can read Melayu, the following is the notice which I found at City Square. Can’t really translate what it meant, maybe you all can tell me.
 

Yes, Photosophize had wanted to do some Chinese New Year shopping today at Johor Bahru, but was faced with iron grille instead. Disappointed, but I respect local customs and the fact that they are mourning for the loss of a National Leader.

May all is well soon.
