Must know everything!

We taxi drivers are actually informants, perpetual answering machines, maps, intermediaries, counsellors and advisors, in fact Mr Know-alls. We need to be because we are always in touch with people all over the world, be it locals, PRs, expats, tourists etc. 
And especially myself, I am an avid reader of our local newspapers, The Straits Times and The New Paper, I always read my papers early in the morning before going to bed if not I find it hard to fall asleep. I am generally a very inquisitive and talkative creature and I can converse with anyone at any level, therefore I need to be very knowledgeable in any subjects here as well as all over the world, be it in everyday lifestyle, finance, politics, arts and drama, sports, love, gambling, food, shopping, theatres and movies, technology, internet, places of interest and oh, so many many more, but I keep learning through gossip get togethers and what have you. 
I have a wonderful and steady mindset and that is, to be happy always and I don't know the meaning of the words 'stress' or 'worry' in fact I am truly a very happy go lucky guy ! In fact, during my earlier years I pride myself as a Jack of all Trades but master of none. The mind can never grow old, it is our control centre and we are what we want to be in anything and everything except for our earthly body which is not. 
It is now 5am and I am looking for a snack, tummy grumbling, till then, Cheers! 
(stay tuned I shall be back with more 2morrow!)
