Isn't it messed up that public transportation is seen as more inconvenient than driving a car, when it should be the other way round.

To any linguist out there: Please consider Malaysian Cantonese to be your interest of research. It's an interesting variant of "Standard Cantonese" with rich sociolingusitics and there are nearly zero studies on it!

I am quickly approaching eternal peace from learning how to go mouseless by mastering keyboard shortcuts and keystrokes.
