Cindy Lee and why Singapore cabs should be yellow

These are tough times for the economy and it is little wonder that the Singapore Taxi Academy shall reportedly issue a new set of regulations in an effort to increase the number of people who use taxi cabs in Singapore.

Here are the main points:

1) all taxi cabs in Singapore MUST now be painted yellow. Yep, there is a reason why New York taxi cabs are yellow and it isn’t difficult to figure out why: yellow is the easiest colour to spot at a distance.

2) all taxi drivers must be less than 30 years of age (previous regulation: more than 30 years old).

3) all taxi drivers must have a social networking account (Friendster, Facebook etc) AND a blog (note: preference will be given to cam whores).

4) all taxi drivers must be able to write blog posts in basic English and have written more than 100 posts before applying to be a driver.

5) all taxi drivers must have at least one year’s driving experience (or two years experience of playing Need For Speed 2 - either Playstation or PC versions).

Since the new regulation came into force, there have been a rush of applicants - the first being from the lovely Cindy Lee:
