Singapore recently (ongoing at the time of writing) had a really long weekend. National day for Singapore fell on a Friday, whereas Hari Raya Haji fell on Sunday. What that actually means is that Singaporeans had a 4-day long weekend.
Instead of staying in Singapore to celebrate National Day, many Singaporeans flocked to Malaysia for a short getaway. This caused some really heavy traffic jams at the causeway:

A witness at ground zero even posted pictures of the jam, with the caption: “OMG! It’s like a gold chain”.

Some even wanted to call the police:
Happy holidays, everyone!
