ERP Woes in Singapore

A friend sent this YouTube video to me the other day; a parady on the recently-hiked ERP (Electronic Road Pricing) in Singapore. This video is likely to be funny only if you know how Singaporeans who drive to work everyday plan their travel schedules for the WHOLE day around when & where the peak-hour surcharges & congested-roads surcharges could hit them...it's almost a national obsession :))

The title made me think you are writing about Enterprise Resource Planning :-)

nice spoof. did u catch Rock On? if not, buy the CD.....skip the movie. review up....

Satya,
Yup, watched "Rock on" this weekend. I quite enjoyed it. Wasn't quite a "Dil chahta hai" but wasn't bad either. I'm fundamentally not very critical of Bollywood movies. Any movie that at least attempts to do something different from a boy-meets-girl story, I make a point to watch it.

Besides, i liked the music, & thought the entire cast was eye-candy... & i loved Purab Kohli's "I will survive" :)
