    • It is a question of who can tarhan longer lor.. PHVs still got money to burn.  CDG waiting for them to burn out their money.

      Certain surcharges should be reviewed like location surcharge.  They are to be activated only when there is a surge e.g. Gardens by the Bay during Christmas, New Year etc when there are events or during peak like Saturdays/Sundays 3pm to 9pm etc. No point having $3 surcharge 24/7 even when there are very little ppl taking taxis there at 8am..

      CBD surcharge can be removed after 8pm to encourage ppl to take cabs. But they can be activated when there is a surge e.g. during CNY in Chinatown, Christmas at Taka etc.

      Last Sat night, Guns & Roses concert at CEC, made two trips there.  Took about 2 hours. Total fare $100 cos of $10 location surcharge.  Shiok.

      Hi mr sbs6750E, yes somehow the extra future bus services must go to loyang or Sengkang-hougang package. Means should just be a numbers game. Cheers. Thanks.

However this GCM thing will mean that the future services for Punggol bus interchange expansion will go to SBST since Go Ahead can only have 25 services as stated in contract? Meaning next feeder service will be SBST? Strange concept though. Note Punggol will have in total more than 52 after expansion and the number of bus services currently is only 16. Still got many slots to go. Thanks.

      Almost everyone hates the Citaros, even everyday commuters and BCs, for many reasons. LTA should not have ordered so many of them. But does that mean that it is not a bus at all, if it still brings commuters from A to B?

      Haha then might as well say Zhongtong and Sunlong makes ok buses too, since it brings commuters from A to B wat!

      Hi mr hgdep103, that edgefield stop is just 150 metres away from the bus stop at Punggol field cove LRT side which has 3, 62, 83 and 136. Anyway it is good for the edgefield stop blk 196. Cheers. Thanks.

      Hi mr hgdep103, they can still park some services sideways (not in proper slots) after proper demarcation is done. Cheers. Thanks.

      There should be good loading on this service primarily on account of its connection directly to Waterway Point. 

      Hi mr busanalayser, good one. Shut out Punggol drive completely. Reduce duplication with LRT (damai, oasis, kadaloor). 

      Purposely diverted off backend of Punggol central but still cannot totally avoid the backend. Because in the end still bypass Punggol east (blk 166 and riveria LRT) which is just mere metres away from backend of Punggol central. So effectively only skip those at third stop of Punggol central (opp blk 188 and blk 622 portion). Cheers. Thanks.

      Sv 119 really no business liao.

      Hi mr sbs6750E, why did they choose same date of implementation as 374? Is there any more to come? Hope so! Cheers. Thanks.

    • My comments on the topic of the Yahoo article (linked below) : The true nature of the phenomenon known as Deja Vu isn't quite exactly as is commonly thought to be : often said to be the result of misfiring of neurons in the brain, creating the false perception of a time-lag or time-loop.

      What has been called, Deja Vu, is actually several distinct phenomena. What the Yahoo article visitors (posting comments below the article) Shaun, HAPPY and patsy are describing, are mostly the result of past life memories, or more rarely, memories of an extraphysical being or entity or consciousness (or 'spirit' or 'ghost', but these terms are misleading), that is psychically intruding or telepathically shared with the physical incarnate person experiencing the phenomenon.

      However, the actual phenomenon more correctly ascribed to Deja Vu, is a far more striking one, in which everything about the scene, including your own thoughts and feelings at that exact moment, is exactly the same as you had experienced before, the sensation being extremely distinct and strikingly unmistakable. It is difficult (actually impossible) to explain the cause of this phenomenon in limited human concepts and words, but suffice to say it can be considered a manner or modality of the consciousness time-travelling (not the physical body time-travelling, but rather your consciousness, which works with but isn't limited to, your physical brain). This is the actual Deja Vu phenomenon the Yahoo article visitors t, Steve and AGR are describing.
