so i'm feeling quite pissed with the money-grubbing airlines now (they all cost more or less the same right now, including the stupid budget airlines), especially since the lowest fare for the exact same flights cost just s$782 minutes before i tried to buy my ticket, but someone else must have beat me to it. so i ended up paying s$200 bucks more for my procrastination. yeaarrgh.
but on the other hand, i've been born and bred on these money-grubbing airlines' income and my family still lives off that to an extent, so what right do i really have to complain, right? sigh.
p.s.: even just on jetstar's "cheap flights", a one-way ticket over the chinese new year costs about s$1,300, if my memory doesn't serve me wrong. siao.
