Thanks guys for making my work day an enjoyable one.....

I love ferrying passengers over long trips. 
One such trip was with this happy family of five, from Resorts World Sentosa to Toa Payoh Lorong 7. Daddy and Mummy with three very young children, two boys and a girl, after enjoying a show at RWS and were returning home. The father sat in the front passenger seat with mummy and children sitting behind. Daddy and me were chatting about their outing, family life and mummy and children were talking about food for dinner and lanterns. All of us were like one big family chatting  happily away till we reached the family's destination. I happen to have two extra new lanterns which I gave to the children and they liked it as we bade farewell. Yes, I always feel good to be in the company of a happy family.
Later in the night, about 11pm, I was fortunate again to have picked up this happy couple, going home after watching a show, at the Changi Expo Taxi stand and this was another long distance trip all the way to Jurong West St. 93. This couple had to fetch their seven-year-old son from the grandfather's house and then proceed to their own home at St. 61 nearby. I don't know what happened, but this night I was very talkative. I talked and talked generally about everything, about family, about children, about religion and so on with my passengers throughout the whole trip, I suppose I got carried away somewhat. Luckily this very nice and pleasant couple, did not mind so much because we all laughed together every now and then and it was as though we were like old time friends till its time to part.
True, my next passenger, a young PR Philippino man, working as an IT troubleshooter, had to travel to work from Woodlands to Upper Changi Ind. Park. This was yet another long, long trip coupled with some more happy chit-chatting all the way and I think I may not be able to stop....  its getting late too....... so....... better take five for now........
