"I drive this cab 9 hours a day, 365 days a year with no time off. I just make enough money to get by. I’m 63. I have no children - still single leh! I try not to think about the future. Everything in Singapore moves so fast. Everything is IT. If I could not drive a cab, what could I do? I am not so smart to be able to do IT. If my license was ever suspended I’d have no hope. I don’t know what I will do when I am too old to drive - how to survive? Cannot think about that.
All my friends are married now. I don’t see them any more. I just go home and sit. I am so tired when I get home. I am so tired I can hardly think. And every day is the same. I think the smart people, like the government, they have time to think. They can think and figure things out. But I am so tired. All I can do is sit.
I wonder sometimes if I am even human. Is this what it means to be human? I don’t know. I really wonder if I am human at all.”
