I took a bus from my home to Country Garden's sales office in Cecil Street and took a bus from there to my office.
The first journey took more than 1 hour and the return journey about 1 hour.
The bus has to crawl slowly and stop every 0.2 km, or therabouts. Each journey must have taken more than 30 stops.
I was quite comfortably seated. However, the journey time was too long.
We need a better way to manage our bus network. I prefer our main bus services to stop every 2 km (or about 5 stops) and for the intermediate stops to be served by a feeder bus. It will cut down the time taken for each journey.
It is easy to change from a main service to a feeder service. The change is done at the same bus stop.
The average age of the mother for new born babies has now exceeded 30 years. The report from the population board said that mothers who give birth to babies at a younger age have more children. It is obvious, isn't it?
If this is obvious, what is the government doing to encourage people to get married younger and have babies earlier? They just talk and have no clue how to solve this problem.
I found it difficult to read out the airline booking reference which contained six letters and numbers.
My friend suggested that I should use the NATO phonetic alphabet. I Googled and found the following:
The 26 code words in the NATO phonetic alphabet are assigned to the 26 letters of the English alphabet in alphabetical order as follows: Alfa, Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, Foxtrot, Golf, Hotel, India, Juliett, Kilo, Lima, Mike, November, Oscar, Papa, Quebec, Romeo, Sierra, Tango, Uniform, Victor, Whiskey, X-ray, Yankee, Zulu.
I will try to use it in the future. Maybe, if this is commonly used, the character based booking reference becomes quite workable.
My short vidoes on financial planning and insurance continued to be very popular, especially with the young people. I monitor the visits and find that every day a few new viewers watched the videos. http://www.tankinlian.com/video.aspx
