Bus Ticket Fare Killed My Wallet!!!!



In less than a week, my new semester is going to start! Yes, I am officially a second year student in Chemical Engineering With Environmental Engineering[ChemEEE]. Actually, I really have a mix feelings[like always]. I am happy because it is time to end my boring holidays; but, I am stressful because it is going to be a busy year! Cincai, bring it on(^^). I have no problem! I will work harder [every time I also say the same thing]. But, currently, I still have a lot of house chores to finish! Have to work hard this week~~~~

Anyway, my classes start on Next Monday. Therefore, I need to get a ticket to go back to KL. At first, I wanted to get the train ticket since it is more convenient to travel to my house in KL. Then, I waited around 20 mins after taking the queuing number. When it was my turn, I was told that only RM22 tickets at the time of 9PM were left. My thought was that it was rather late and expensive. So, I changed to bus ticket. To my surprise again, the bus tickets were also sold out! Therefore, they have extra buses on that day! At the end, I need to pay RM20.30 for a ticket!!!!!!!!!!! Arghhhhhhhh, it is really like the Chinese Proverb - 趁火打劫 [When the situation is chaotic, some people start to take advantages]~~~~


If you can see clearly, they are charging subcharge for 30% again! What the~~~I remembered 2 years ago, the bus fare from Ipoh to KL was only about RM13.40. Then, one Hari Raya, [as claimed by them], it was the fuel price increase, they started to implement the subcharge thingy, from RM13.40 TO RM17.40. Even since then, the ticket price did not dropped back to RM13.40. Now, again, during Hari Raya, they chargeD again@@~~ Totally broke loh!!!! RM 20.30 FOR A TICKET~~~~~~~~~~~

Currently, I am keeping all my tickets as a record for my contribution towards the success of the transportation in Malaysia. Yet, they never appreciate loyal consumers like me@@............

Guys, I will be rather busy this week. So, I might not be able to do my blog readings as often. and there will less blog updating(><).... But, do leave a comment here! I would definitely get back to you!!!!!!
