In defence of the TTC

I’m one of those people that tries to avoid arguments and heated discussions. I mean, they’re funย sometimes – pretty much when you try to trash my team in front of me. Like nope, only the fans themselves can trash their own team because they’re the ones who actually experienceย the pain when it happens, therefore they are allowed to trash their own team – but when it comes to netizen comments or social media comments in general, I try to avoid them. In fact, the last time I left a YouTube comment was a positive one.

But today, because of the TTC emergency shutdown during morning rush hour, I came across a friend’s Facebook post who shared a news article about the incident, and commented by saying that the TTC is trash and they’re not doing enough toย become a better transit system.

Now look, I ride the TTC five days a week. My commute is 1.5 hours long. That’s 3 hours everyday. 3 hours that I could use more productively. So if I have the right to complain, I have it, but to say that the TTC hasn’t done anything to better themselves in the past fewย years is a lie.

  • Some people are really good at taking sexy selfies. I am not one of those people. In fact, I spent 5 mins of this very selfie photoshoot realizing that I'm balding and then ๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ˜ญ "crying" over it. #Attractive P.S. Did you know that the Google Pixel camera has a facial retouch feature built in right in its app?! Amazing. Cover up my blackheads please. #Fivehead
  • Photojournalism is my favourite type of journalism. ๐Ÿ“ท Some really eye-opening photos on display here at the @southbankcentre. Be sure to check them out if you're in the area! #WPPH2017
  • Shrimp-ed up my experience at my first ever London winter market. Delicious! Battered shrimp was a good choice. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿค
  • Awkward mug holding position as I was trying not to spill my mulled plum cider. The drink itself was delicious though! ๐Ÿคค #ChristmasMarket
  • Went to the @britishlibrary's Harry Potter exhibit today! Super cool to see some of the original manuscripts written by J. K. Rowling. ๐Ÿ“– Did you know that "Fudge" was originally written as a Muggle, and he was to appear in the very first chapter of the entire series? Or that in the second book, Harry and Ron were supposed to crash into the lake and then be rescued by English-speaking merpeople? The coolest thing though, was seeing the full handwritten plan of "Order of the Phoenix" all laid out in four sheets of paper, detailing how each chapter would contribute to the overall prophecy, and how minor characters would show up in the book (e.g. Ginny, Cho, Hagrid, the Order, and Dumbledore's Army). This plan was written way before the first book was even published! J. K. Rowling is a genius! ๐Ÿ˜ #BLHarryPotter
  • Almost Christmas! Looking forward to what Christmas is Iike in London. ๐Ÿ˜Š P.S. Now that iPhone X is out, and we all know how Instagram loooves their iPhones - irrational bias imho - they should really work on improving their photo compression. This quality is unacceptable. ๐Ÿ˜ค
