Imagine the thought of going to work using public transportation? I believe many of my Singaporean friends and Malaysians working in Malaysia continue to use buses and MRTs to commute to work. It's really a simple lifestyle where the island continues to prosper because they are Singapore.Inc. Are we ready to become Penang.Inc one day? I guess the reality is this - our past leaders do not see a need to build good transportation system but instead spent time pondering on building tallest buildings, biggest and longest buffets....I dread when I think of that each day.
With the hike in petrol and diesel, I am very sure that all of us have to start thinking about how we should change our lifestyle. Well, for one, I will be commuting to work using public buses. I know it sounds crazy but it's time to consider that. I am sure we all have to make serious sacrifices but it's for the better. Secondly, it's time to cut down on eating out. Maybe it's time to cook lunch to work and heat it up whenever lunch approaches.
One question - did we make a wrong choice of the federal government? Of course, Yes. Anyway, since 7 June is our King's birthday, let's pray that sanity prevails. Daulat Tuanku.
