The Element Of Luck

I just took a cab home and for the 15 minute duration of the journey, I must have been the most unlucky person in Singapore. Now I don't believe in luck, but somehow during that taxi ride, I was "unlucky".

First, I came across not 1, but 2 road blocks. And in the first road block, the police officer had to pick me to do a routine spot check.


"Sir, could you step out for a moment?"

*steps out of taxi*

"Can I have your IC please?"

"Here. What's all this for?"

"Oh, it's just routine."


The whole bloody thing took around 5 minutes, which probably added around 80 cents or $1 because of the midnight surcharge. Come on, out of all the cars there, you had to pick a taxi? I know my super lovable girlfriend says that I sometimes have sleepy eyes, but I don't think it was so bad that I looked stoned after consuming drugs. I didn't have an unconscious woman beside me nor did I look drunk, so I really don't know why the police officer had to pick me out of everyone.

So when I arrived underneath my block, I reluctantly paid the $9.30 (it's usually between $7 and $8) and stepped out of the taxi.

Then something fell out my pocket.

My handphone.

It wasn't damaged but I was slightly cheesed off at my carelessness. Bah. I think it's time to get some sleep.

Count yourself lucky already. Over here, policemen galore. They're always sneaking around in the corners waiting to catch high school kids speeding.

zhi yang: Yes I was. Hopefully it lasts just for that night.

miryclay: The road blocks were at Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 and the long road near the French school. Most likely they put those blocks there because people tend to speed in those areas.

melissa: Really? Maybe that's because more kids drink and drive over there.

FF: Now that you've said that, I don't feel that suay anymore. Haha. :P

saripartygirl: Sure thing! I'll link you up. :)

Lexie: The road blocks are usually only set up in the middle of the night, mainly to catch and stop people who are speeding. That's why I don't know why they had to do a check on me.
