Firstly, finding a vacant taxi would be a challenge, sexy Central Office Ladies with long legs in short skirts often beat me to it (i wonder why).
Secondly, i find a taxi journey from my home to work to be about the same time as on the bus, cos of the congestion (traffic jams apply to both bus and taxis, since they are both road vehicles... OK, you might argue that there are bus lanes... but they dont help the situation in central, do they?)
Thirdly, people around me (yellow but green) always talk about envirionment and pollution, so I am doing my part to save the planet by opting public transport. What would u choose?
I m not blaming pensioners for making me late. In the words of Obama, 'YES, we Can' wake up earlier for work, but shouldnt communities be co-operating with each other more to make things run more smoothly. An example would be of me living with my grandad and theres only one bathroom in the house. he knows that i need to use the bathroom in the morning, between 0800 and 0830 so he avoids using the bathroom during that time. Similiarly, I know he goes to bed early, so I avoid the bathroom during 8pm which is the time he normally takes his shower.
Seems pretty feasible to implement a system whereby fares are more costly during peak / rush hours, London does it. I know London's Public Transport is far from perfect but The only problem there is the medieval transport network, not the system.
its winter for hk standards, i.e. its a bit cooler. so why is the mtr being pumped to the brim with A/C, so you actually feel a lot colder than it actually is?
I think overall peoples manners in HK have improved over the past 12 years I've been here. We still have not solved the letting people out of the train first. The MTR have not campaign against it for some reason. Maybe the chaotic manner in which people get on and off is faster?
Hong Kong people with scary yellow teeth who work in cosmetics places such as a certain MISSHA in Mong Kok -- how the heck did they get a job selling beauty products?!
They all use crappy Darlie toothpaste, which is evidently useless from the looks of things.
