The KTM drama


People can really just start a movie based on my experiences at the KTM. It would be a confirmed box office success! 

So yes, I was on the KTM home yesterday and it stops at Bandar Tasik Selatan to pick people up. No one climbed on board and it started to leave. After about 20 feet, the train just freezes and just starts moving backwards! How is that even possible? Good grief, a train could be coming behind us and it just decides to reverse. It went right back to Bandar Tasik Selatani station to pick up these panting, lost and gubra people. Left behind. So sad.

So moving on, just when I thought the drama was over, this announcement was made:

"Due to damaged brakes, the train will stop at Kajang station. Please unboard the train and board another at Platform 3. The next train to Seremban will be arriving in 10 minutes. We apologise for any inconvenience caused!"

Inconvenience? DUDE. Braking problems?! Then how on earth are we supposed to stop?! This isn't the Flintstones where we could just stop with our feet! An Indian lady was going, "AIYOHAHMAAHPA, braking poroblem ar? *something in Tamil*".

THANKFULLY, we did stop at Kajang and had to wait til the next one. THANKFULLY, the next train was one of the newest models of KTM. They had a TV set and Tom & Jerry was going on. I was not impressed with the latest episodes.

So overall, it was a rather interesting ride home. Funny funny times.
