Netizens and Citizens are not happy. FB and forums, online and newspapers are all ablaze with fury. But really, they can only voiced out their unhappiness and the fares will still go up. The other taxi companies are watching and waiting for the right moment to join in the bandwagon. 

What can and should we do? As citizens, we can do our part to question and suggest alternatives to the authorities. We should also work out our travel alternatives to ease out the increased financial costs. Take more public transport, car pool, make friends with those with vehicles :-)

Is there anything spiritual in all these? Yes, we can pray to the Lord who holds the kings plans in His palm. We should ask God to give us strength and wisdom to live in the new economy. We should continue to live simply and not lose track of Him and the things that we planned to do for Him. 

Live on. In the words of Habbakuk, chapter 3

17 Though the fig tree does not bud
   and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
   and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
   and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
   I will be joyful in God my Savior.
 19 The Sovereign LORD is my strength;
   he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
   he enables me to tread on the heights.

Trust in the Lord. He knows.
