once again, i'm unexpectedly impressed by the incisiveness of taxi driver uncles and their philosophy. at 11.35 am todae, i left home to brave the causeway back to jb for the long weekend. sadly i din't realise the implications of returning home on a public holidae. it's now 3.30 pm, and it's been only 15 min since i stepped into the door. i'm sticky, my neck is achey, and my brain quite a blank, so i shall zone and vent and jus generally complain bt my govt until i garner enuff energy to go take a bath.

this time round, the horror started at the singapore side of the immigration checkpoint. after clearing customs, i came down the escalator to find the ENTIRE SPACE where all the bus bays are being filled, like TOTALLY FILLED, with people. at tat point, the f-word went thru my brain like 13473450 times. normally, tat's not such a big issue, but now tat the stupid jb checkpoint is like MILES away, it takes one 45 min to walk across on foot. at noon, under the blazing sun, with a bag tat's like 5 kg, NOT a good idea.

so i decided to join one of the many queues tat was all over the place - when i asked the last person in the queue which bus they were lining up for, they were like I DON'T KNOW TOO. so WATEVER, i jus lined up. after much pushing and shoving while the queues merged and emerged, it was like being in... i dunno, indonesia or mumbai or something... i finally managed to force myself into the 170 line. i was probably lucky, tho i kept having to contend with a trio of 'ah lians' tat kept trying to creep in front of me - BITCHES.

by the time we entered the maze tat was the beginning of the jb checkpoint, everyone was probably baking inside the bus and we were going along at the same speed as those poor wretches walking outside, and internally we were like subaru in the above icon.

when i got a cab home, i was readily sharing my fed-up'ness with the taxi driver uncle who was totally in agreement. crossing the causeway each time makes me feel like my country is going down the drain.

and NOW my dad tells me the OLD checkpoint may possibly be reopened to allow pedestrians and buses to pass thru. WHY THE FUCK DID THEY NOT DO THIS SOONER AND SPARE US ALL THIS FUCKING GRIEF????
