Life's not that bad. The grey skies will clear up.
A lot of people are also confused about about the VEP and Road Charge. I, too, wasn't really clear about it till a good friend directed me to this link https://vep.jpj.gov.my
After reading the link and if you are still not clear, it's basically saying that the VEP is a tracking database with no fees except for the one-time registration fee and that motorists have to collect a radio frequency identification (RFID) label while the RC is a separate entry toll that Singapore-registered cars have to pay RM20.
Thank you Friend for the clarification.
