People who know me well knows that I am not a big spender.  To be exact, I am quite stingy. emoticon

Many people said taxi fare in Singapore is cheap / affordable, comparing to Hong Kong / Japan.  Don't mention about Europe, US or Australia.    

I've been living in Singapore for almost 2 yearsemoticon, from Oct 2004 to Aug 2006,  below is some data for my travelling pattern :

Taxi 
4 times to airport (unable to catch the earliest flight by bus, 1 more time I happened to share with other travellers from Betelbox, so it's not aloneemoticon)
- 1 time from airport (landed after midnite, bus stopped already)
- 2 times for job interviews (wanted to arrive in a better shape in tropical warm Singapore)
1 time from hospital to office when I sprang my right calf last year
- 1 time from MRT to home as I was too sick to walk the 20 mins.
- 1 time to work (set my clock 1 hour behind SG time when coming back from overseas).
- 1 time to meet a friend who didn't have much time and the location is far from MRT.
- 1 time returning home from the neighbourhood as it was raining (it's about 20 mins walk only)
= 12 times

Of course there are times I took taxis with friends, the above was only refering to the times that I had to take a cab alone, without sharing with other people.

At times, I was walking 45 mins home across a dark quiet park at 2am; or travelling miles across the country on a bus after midnite when I had to get up early the next day for morning shift.....emoticon

emoticonAeroplane
-  8 times back to Hong Kong = 16 times
- 2 times to Bangkok = 4 times
= 20 times 

Don't get me wrong that  I am showing off how many times I've been travelling on plane, just want to tell you how stingy I could be.emoticon

p.s. I didn't take taxi that often either when I was living in Hong Kong... I am a big fan of public buses :) hahahaha.

===================================================================
8 Oct - came back from JB, missed the last MRT, took taxi from Tao Payoh to home
16 Oct - moving house.
11 May 07 - going home after pubbing at Suntec city till 1:30am (it's been a long long time I haven't been pubbing, what a nice night out, thx Steven and Belindaemoticon)

====================================================
(After shifting job to work from 3pm - 1130pm and my new company provide taxi fare for staff to go home after 11pm, I took taxi 5 times a week since 9 July. 
Plus my nephew and his friend came visit SG for 1 mth, we usually took taxi when going around as well....=> this July + August was the time I took most cab in my life... emoticon)

23 Aug 2007 - moving house 
26 Dec 2007 - back home from a night out at Clarke Quay (nite bus only 
                       operate on Fri, Sat and Eve of Publich holidays, no choice)

多謝到訪留言emoticon. 係呀,11:30pm後開始收附加費嘛,所以的士司機都冚旗等咯...乘客要call車又要附加費, 佢地不知幾和味emoticon....

你講開新加坡坐的士,有次我俾個的士佬搵苯。那次我是要去Rangoon raod,因為是中午時份,所以唔想由MTR行過去,故上了架唐人司機開的車,但係佢唔知車咗去邊,重要點我話呢條路架車入唔到,說行前少少就到!?結果行了成五分鍾連個路牌都唔見到呢!後來問一個馬拉人,才知道要走行15分鍾才到呢!

新加坡的士是愈夜愈貴,所以最好都係十二點前返酒店

Me too.. once I was taking the cab fr hospital to office 1pm at weekday. It should be $5+, but I was charged with $12+.  Since I seldom took cab, I was not aware being overcharged until I told friends later... Didn't keep the receipt, or could complain :(

最激氣是我去到目的地,原來是的士可以駛入,只是那個司機不知是否趕食飯,所以就亂咁放低我和友人

I didn't change my attitude... but my current company is paying for cab fare after work, so I take cab all the times now ;)
