RM8 for 5.70

Yesterday was my first day working at the new buliding at Ara Damansara. The day before, me and 3 of my colleagues plan to go to the new building together. We plan to meet at Kelana Jaya LRT around 10.00 to 10.15am and then, we'll ride the Rapid bus to the new building together.

I woke up yesterday at 6.20am. After subuh prayer, I surf the net for a while, updating my blog and so on. Then, I was very sleepy. I went to the bed for a nap. I set the alarm at 8.45am. When the alarm rang, I snoozed it for another 10 minutes. Know what happen? It was snoozed to another one hour! Oh crap! It was already 9.45am. Then, immediately, I smsed to one of my colleagus, saying that I couldn't join them. I asked them to go first without me. So serba salah. Coz I promised to them already.

I took a quick shower and breakfast. Then, at 10.15am, I went out from my house. I took a bus from my house to KL. Aiseh, that bus was kinda slow.. It took almost half an hour to arrive ( normally 15-20 min). Then, I took the LRT from Central Market. Sweating some more because of all the running. Alhamdulillah, I still got time to arrive on time.

When I arrived at the KJ LRT Station, I searched for Rapid T607. There was none at that moment. Hmm, I couldn't wait or I will be late. Then, I decided to take a cab from there. I asked the cab driver to go to the new location which I also don't know where at that time. I passed a map to him. Lucky he knows that place. When I was in the cab, I saw that there is a meter inside. I was relieved. I don't like to take 'teksi sapu' as they will charge you to according to their will.

When I arrived at the new building, the meter stated that I have to pay RM5.70 for the ride. Sigh~ If I took the Rapid bus, it will only cost me RM1. Nevermind. When I about to pay the driver said that the fare is RM8. I was like, what? "Kenapa pulak?", I asked him. He replied, "Because nanti balik, takder org nak naik, tu pasal u kena bayar lebih.". Dalam hati aku, "Mcm tu la pulak". Nak jer aku ckp, "How do you know that no one will ride ur cab? This place is not that 'ulu' you know. Got many people what". But I was not brave enough and since I was already late, i just paid the fare. RM8 for RM5.70. Sigh~~

Hmm, next time, gonna go out a bit earlier so that I will not miss the Rapid bus. No more "tidur after subuh" for me. :(
