Fish Tales

My life in Singapore Taipei. And then some.

An “ugly commute” conveys my daily experience in an optimistic tone. Those 32 kilometres (20 miles) between Xindian and Taoyuan always represent a constant hour+ fight against, what appears to be, a non-ending string of red tail lights ahead.

Not good for someone who hates commuting and views it as a complete waste of two plus hours each day.

But, luckily, my company runs a hourly coach shuttle bus that I’ve been regularly taking. A quick nap sure beats avoiding waves of scooters while driving yourself.

Plus, I’ve almost overcome my issue of getting car sick while reading in a moving vehicle. I wrote this entire post on my smartphone without throwing-up on the guy next to me, so that’s progress!


Riding the "school bus" to work...

    I’m thrilled that you are blogging again! :)

  2. Yep. The Android WordPress app is most excellent. Makes it more convenient to write a quick update like this. From anywhere. ;)
