23 – The gridlocked life

After all this time, I think I should call the conclusion that dealing with the traffic in Jakarta actually takes a toll on you.

For these past few weeks, the traffic jams have been absolutely nuts. By nuts, I mean standstill bumper-to-bumper traffic on the toll road at 6.15 am, and actually getting surprised when getting home at night only takes 1.5 hours.

Really, you can’t help but to think “Why the bloody hell did I leave Singapore for this?” after a while.

Hey government, I know you’ve been telling everyone that as soon as the road constructions etc are done all of this will go away. I’m telling you, it had better work, and it had better be absolutely fantastic..
