Do you have patience?

Maybe it's because I get tired of the inconsiderate people around me all the time or Singapore is so small and everyone lives so close together, but sometimes I really lose my temper and patience.

I try to let things go and not let other people's actions get on my nerves, but sometimes I immediately react with anger. If it's someone being really noisy, then I tell them to be quiet. Especially in a movie theatre. Actually, I would even yell at them to shut up if they keep making noise.

I didn't used to be so intolerant. Or maybe I encounter more rude people here. I should try to be more calm before reacting.

    Though I'm not into war, but sometimes, just sometimes, 'patience' is spelt as 'patients' and 'patients' belong to doctors, not people like us. Everyone's got their temper, it's just a matter of when they'll blow up.

    But then again, there are many times when all you can do is to swallow it and act nice.

    That sucks innit?

    Did I say you should get a bike?

    Heh....

    Aimless wandering, mode of transport, cheap maintenance, go almost anywhere (explore), will surely get new friends (monkeys like us) and you might even see Ah Seng sleep in public live. Good?

    Well, I refrained from yelling at a pair of teenagers at a movie the other night. They kept making lots of noise by eating something from a loud plastic bag. I hung on for about 30 minutes and then I mentioned to my friend who was sitting between me and the teenagers that they were being too noisy.

    He promptly grabbed their bag and put it under his seat. There was not a peep from them after that.

    It was a nice move. Did not cause a scene and no yelling was required. I don't know if that strategy would work for me. It helps to have a guy at the movies.

    Unreal: Not sure if I am ready to commit to a bike. Maybe I should just get my licence first and then decide? How long would that take?

    Well, the time spent to get your licence largely depends on you, you can put all your waking hours into it if you want to get it really soon. You'll probably get it within 4 months. The learning part is actually a lot of fun. As for the location of the driving centre, it depends on where you stay, Ubi gives the best results so far. And the cost is nothing when compared to cars.

    Thanks for the advice. Will think about it. Might have to move house, so need to think about the cost some more.

    Take your time girlie, but don't take too long 'cause rumor has it that there might be a new class for motorcycles, like 2C or something. I don't know as it's all just, well, rumors.

    Great. Think I should wait a little longer to take the course? I don't even have a driver's license for a car. Well...not for this country.

    That don't matter actually, bike first or car first, anytime.
