My mind is playing tricks on me.
As you know, I'll be taking an express bus to KL this coming tuesday. And seriously, it's scaring
the hell out of me. :O
Taking into view the the sudden increase of express bus accidents recently, you can't blame me.
For those who do not read newspapers (I know many don't), here are the statistics of the recent crashes. I've even provided links so you can check it out to know more. Pls click okie!

So far these are the accidents I cud find. I'm not sure whether I missed out on any of the accidents that happened recently. Anyhow, you get the picture.
The fact that our country ALWAYS waits till something disastrous happens then only they will sit up, take notice and make some stupid guidelines which will be forgotten soon after - irks me so. Why can't they really be efficient for once and put those guidelines to good use? If not, don't promise at all okay.
All this red tape and dilly-dallying costs people LIVES you know. The time when something real is done for prevention and not to appease the public after something bad happened is the day when I'd proudly say that we have grown as a country.
*this part has been deleted becoz my frenz insisted that it was inauspicious - I guess it is*
All these road accidents seriously scares me. Becoz I cud have easily avoided this coz I HAD a choice. But I didn't take it. I was obstinate. And bored. yes do not underestimate the power of extreme boredom. It makes one unable to think clearly.
Please, let me be safe.
I haven't fulfilled my dream of being a doctor. I want to get married and have a family. I still want to save the
world people that need me. I want to grow old with you and spoil my grandchildren (as all grandparents do, haha).
And there are more of those along the same lines. It takes guts for me to admit all this. but yeah, I realise that I still have a lot of things that I want to do.
Only the young think they will live forever. I think I'm growing old. -_-
