Home X Money: Pray Me Home

first week at work of 2013

31st Dec – 4th Jan

4-days week since 1st Jan is an public holiday

one day off already saved me loads travelling


4 days 4 different routes to work


Day 1, Mon

6.30 a.m. bus from home

asked the driver to do me a favour of

dropping me off at a petrol kiosk

so that I can just walk to the company


but he refused

nevermind, no point begging

therefore, took a cab to work

from the main terminal


Day 2, Wed

6.30 a.m. bus from home again

switched to bus of another company

managed to drop off

and walked a 1km route to work

8.15 a.m. here was I

in a totally empty office


Day 3, Thurs

went back to dorm instead of home the night before

but it did not make much difference indeed

took the earliest city bus at 6.20 a.m.


hell the traffic was already quite heavy

because school has started

switched to another city bus and

reached the train station before 8 a.m.

caught a company shuttle service and

reached  company by 8.30 a.m.


Day 4, Fri

from home again

took the 6.00 a.m.

because I happened to be there early

reached the petrol kiosk outside the company

by 7.30 a.m.


therefore decided to just go ahead

to the bus terminal where everyone else is alighting

but wait a minute

the bus is taking a totally different route

and the couple of unfamiliar sky scrappers

came into sight



the bus was heading downtown

instead of the usual bus terminal


rushed through the journey via train

and managed to get to the usual spot by 8.30 am

just in time for the company shuttle

meaning: just in time

the shuttle bus reached the moment

I stepped out of the train station

and it moved once everyone else got on the bus


in short,

company – dorm = 29.5 km

company – home = 137 km



company – dorm = reached earliest by 9.20p.m.

company – home = reached before 9.00 p.m.

one more thing,

for your information

I finished work at 6.00 p.m.


where will I be next Monday?

or randomly picking between

home or dorm

just like the other day?

I have no idea


lost count of the times

I woke up, in a startled stage

along the long journey and asked

am I there yet?


yesterday I have this really bad nightmare

the bus I was travelling on

well, it was a yellow school bus

crashed into the pedestrian walk

then a tree fell

the road started to crack

there formed a really big gaping hole


a boy

due to the sudden stop made by the bus driver

fell off the bus

landing dead into the gaping hole

surrounded by the tangling root of the tree


couldn’t agree with this no more

not because it is posted by Mr. Eddie


“Good to be home,

even better if there is a mobile home”
