However exaggerated it sounds, it’s no longer just a question of change or be left behind, it’s a question of change or die. It’s a question of walk or perish.

Conrado de Quiros in his column yesterday on the merits of walking in this time of oil-price hikes. It’s not that I object to walking, it’s just that the metro is really not a commuter-friendly city! Public transpo sucks! The MRT provides some measure of convenience but getting to and from the train is a hassle. And once you’re in the station, lining up for tickets, lining up to get into the loading platform, lining to get into the train (complete with pushing and shoving, a few curses, and using a well-placed and timely elbow from time to time) is a survival course in itself! Then again, maybe all this walking will make me lose weight, haha!

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
