How many hours will you spend on a bus in the sky? 1hr on the train is not too bad right?

if affordability was the issue, why not ask those who drive, to park their cars in the airport and drive back when they come home (or don't because plane crashed). don't even bother with a cab if you are so rich.

to stir this some more, take a private jet for your private holiday. anything less means you are poor.

I tell u.. it actually depends on the person location and also the timing. ( non peak hr etc)

If live beside mrt, the place u going also connected to mrt, really just take mrt if going. Bus abit dangerous but also really depend on where they live

I have been in a situation when mrt is faster than taxi.

I guess sometimes its easier to take the train than taxis, phv etc esp during peak hours where there is traffic jam or taxi/phv drivers don't want to accept.

It’s about the concept of value for money.

Your interpretation of value for money on a certain goods will be different from another person.

By starting this thread, you just reminded me of another thread about people going to Switzerland with a luggage that's full of instant noodles...somehow *maggi mee* is the instant noodle brand they can only afford....not even cup noodle or the Prima brand...and so they have to bring a pot along as well.

And when the housekeeper makes up the room after they (finally) checked out, the smell of Singapore Maggi mee (karlee flavour) lingers. Will that sia suay Singapore leh, you say lor...:crazy:
Swiss food really sucks though. Expensive is one thing but the quality and taste also cmi.
everything was very salty and overseasoned. Their sandwiches are so cold and hard. Also tried the cheese fondue but overrated af. The only thing nice were the chocolates.
I regret not bringing cup noodles. Thankfully Germany and Italian food were good.

If you really wanted to save

don’t go holiday , don’t buy air ticket

you take taxi to airport maybe $40-50
you take plane to japans , 1 family easily 3-4k

don’t be penny wise pound foolish

its really a dumb logic that you spent a few Ks but want to save a few cents
lol ur logic also dumb one like TS. spend few k on holiday so cannot take train must take cab?

then like that i book 5* hotel must eat at their restaurant and not street side becos i spend so much on hotel already.

u know what is penny wise pound foolish first anot?

unless u r telling me that they by taking train affects their holiday in anyway that cost them more money in the end then ur penny wise pound foolish applies.

Dun for the sake of say this sentence just anyhow wack only. Please get ur facts right on what it means first before using this idiom

… if saving $50 by not taking cab and proceeding to spend 10k on a holiday is not penny wise pound foolish, idk whats your special definition

if you really want to save money, like I said , don’t go on holiday can save much much much more
