What can RM20.00 get you ?

"That will be twenty ringgit" said Mr Taxi driver of HP1420.

That was the amount that I had to pay for getting a taxi ride from Perhentian Bus Sungai Nibong to Komtar on friday, 7th July 2006.

Was the taxi meter working ? yep sure damn it was ... it was placed in snooze mode.

Cost of living sure is high in Penang, even higher than Kuala Lumpur.

As a comparison, a taxi ride from Puduraya to KLCC in Kuala Lumpur will cost me a mere RM 6.00 and the driver instinctly switched on the meter even without me asking.

Shame ole shame Penang Taxi Driver.

Dr Teng, what can you do about that ? judging from your failure at handling the bus reorg exercise in April 2006, my hope on you is diminishing at exponential order ...
