destination ccb

i took a cab to my destination today.

moby: to the bat cave, driver...
crazy cabbie (ccb): ok...

*5 minutes into the ride*

ccb: so which way do you wanna go ah?
moby: err...the fastest way lah...i'm kinda in a rush...
ccb: oh ok...so which way you wanna go ah?
moby: *sighs* ok...you take a left here, and another right there, and then you do a u-turn after the traffic light.
ccb: HAR??? why you wanna go that way?
moby: then how would you prefer to go? pray tell...
ccb: aiyah, i take a right here, and then another right in front, and then you go straight down that ever-winding road, and then cross the busy junction with the maniac drivers, and then i'll try to avoid all the stationary cars along the road with the speed bumps loh! like that don't need to u-turn what.
moby: err...i think my way is easier leh.
ccb: NO LAH! siao ah you! *glares behind at moby*
moby: ok ok...have it your way...you're the driver. *moby puts on seat belt with much speed and urgency*
ccb: heh heh...ok...

*moby arrives at bat cave and ends up paying $2.70 more than usual*

lesson learned: don't fuck with the person driving you home. just put on your seat belt and shut the hell up. ALL taxi drivers know what they're talking about. serious. ccb...

either that or you should buy your own batmobile. haha. cheers. =)

hi moby,

erm, regarding buying your own car just to get a gf hor, i think it's not logical lah.

although it might bring you some convenience, but if that girl really loves you, she wouldn't mind you not having your own transport.

you see, when the both of you take public transport, it is pretty sweet too. she can be dozing off on your shoulder and the both of you can hold hands. i don't think this can be done if you are driving loh.

i would rather you spend the money on buying gifts for your gf. more practical mah! =))

just be more patient. the right girl will come along. =)

girl in thoughts> If a girl needs to make a choice between 2 guys. Both equally love her and every single member in the family including the dog, both are equally good looking, both can tolerate her temper/bad habits, both are equally successful in career, she has the same chemistry for both...

except that 1 comes with car 1 dun....

tell me which one would she choose?

come on let's be realistic...

The way I look at it, one shld be buying the car for himself/herself..

anyway you are the one paying not the other party...

you prob incur more for petrol coz you need to send him/her home...

*Imagine Pasir ris to Jurong*

Let's be realistic, in the past chicks dig guys who rode horses. Then came the horse-drawn carriage. Now it's about wheels coupled with engines rated by its horsepower.

Guys with cars definitely have an advantage over guys who don't own a car. Wheels definitely send a strong mating signal because it's a status symbol, especially in Singapore.

Why do guys with a set of wheels score (even with two?) - that's because it doubles up as a shagmobile (or a crotch rocket).

Girls can't resist because it's a primordial instinct

furfur_angel & zero:

what you ppl say is true lah, but then again, there are many guys out there who are "car-less" but yet they still have countless gfs right?

i think having a car MIGHT add brownie points, but it is not the deciding factor lah.

ultimately, the girl will choose the guy that she has most "feel". =))

aiyah, if the girl really loves the guy, i don't think she will bear to let him spend so much money to get a car just for convenience sake loh.

i am staying in pasir ris loh. i always hear my friends comprain that i stay too far. wah, not that i can help it right?

anyway, it's just my opinion lah. don't bombard me hor... =))

It was be nice to have a car. But if one becomes a slave to the car then its pointless. Hate the feelin of being in debts. Born free, die free. Anyway me and surfer babe (media sis) once were talkin abt combine salary and get an SUV. I like Merc, volvo, Volks, Lexus and BMW SUV. Cos its luxury yet sporty and smart and fierce lookin. We agree it will be RX300. But we also damn loser:P cos both of us dont know how to drive:P

I have been feein the cab lately cos I wake up late and take forever to build my 1cm thick make-up daily. Yesterday was totally horrible cos there was a huge jam and the cabbie uncle from my Yishun, went to hougang, then potong pasir (right spellin?), then serangoon, the kallang! Damn he claimed tats the SHORT CUT and with call charges ($5), my fare came close to $26.

Almost puke in the cab cos I hop in at 9.14 and reached my bloody office at 10.20! Took off the seatin belt half way dont care!

My cab far can take me to KL liao:(
Sheesh...So angry till almost CRY!

Zero,

Tarot cards? Gee,,,,I have been playin it since 10 years back. It was not berri popular here then. Mine is base on Greek Gods. The Mythic Tarot by: Juliet Sharman-Burke and Liz Greene. My fav card from the major arcana: The Magician. Also like star signs and love Linda Goodman and Jessica Adams (Aussie) cos they right wicked and witty.

cab drivers... once, I tooka cab with a friend back to my place. The &^$@ driver took the long way going to Pasir Ris first. I suspect t was because my friend is a Taiwanese and we were chatting in the cab in the accent so he thought we were foreigners.
