It's been a while since I took the train.

For the usual commute, I take buses and cabs. When it's convenient I'll take buses. And when it's inconvenient, I'll take cabs. But when there's a long queue for cabs, I'll try my luck with buses again. Something in me resists calling for a cab. Even though I could easily justify a called-cab ride from the savings from not having a car. Somehow it just doesn't happen. Like spending $36 for a GV Gold Class ticket.

I can't do that.

It's 7:35 and I'm moving towards Simei. I actually managed to find a seat. The train is not packed. Perhaps it's a Friday; the office crowd remains in the city for pre-V dinners and then some more.

I don't see many execs in business wear either. Perhaps it's dress down Friday. Or perhaps they don't take public transport. The public transport users are rather multi-cultural.

I could write some more but I've reached my stop.

Tampines.
