09.10.2011 | 嗚乎哀哉

[#1252] 噚晚如常搭輕鐵返屋企, 嚟到離我目的地嘅前一站, 當列車準備開駛前進時, 車廂內突然傳出"啪"一聲, 跟住就聽見有其他乘客引起小騷動!! 原來引擎輕微爆炸, 濃煙即見, 焦味即聞!! 幸好列車尚在車站, 大家可以即刻離開車廂, 可算係有驚無險..
  • 由各位乘客行動所見, 我發覺我哋嘅災難意識好低.. 好多乘客都猶疑緊要點反應, 有啲就勢不探個究竟不罷休.. 如果真係(大吉利是講句)大禍臨頭, 怕且都真係死得人多..
  • 輕鐵慣性地發生故障, 今次仲要離譜到引擎燒著兼爆炸, 好彩係有驚無險啫.. 我真係懷疑有關當局其實有冇每晚都檢查維修每一列列車?? 真係要認真檢討囉..
  • 大概十五分鐘後先消防車嚟到, 雖然應該唔係發生好大件事, 但係見到啲消防員啱啱瞓醒個樣, 好似事不關己咁蓮步姍姍行入車站, 嘩!! 點指意呢啲火祝鬼救火救人呀??
[#1252] was commuting by LRT home as usual last night, one stop away from my destination, when the train was about to move, there was a sudden and loud "paaakkk" heard from within the coach.. followed by a little chaos caused by some other passengers.. it was a little explosion from the engine, luckily the train was at the station and we were all able to evacuate the train safely..
  • from the reactions of the passengers, i realized how we are not sensitive to disasters.. some were confused and wondered how to response, others were so keen to gossip what has happened.. if (touch wood) there's really a disaster, i can imagine how few could actually escape..
  • it seems like the LRT is perpetually having technical deficiencies, and this time as worse as engine burnt and explosion but lucky it's just a scare!! i really wonder if the authority is doing maintenance on the trains every night?? this should really be seriously looked into..
  • the fire brigade arrived about 15 minutes later, though i do not think there's any major accident, seeing the look-like-just-woke-up firemen walking into the station slowly and sluggishly, you will wonder if we can expect them to save any life when needs come..

  2. 我第一次去搭就遇到故障了,那时是停了下来而已,有开门的话,我肯定会出外面等啦。

  3. maintenance culture is not a big deal in Malaysia, don't you think?

  4. We may build the tallest, biggest, most advanced but it's state will probably deteriorate in just a few years.

  5. I myself thank my lucky stars I don't need to use LRT daily anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Explosion? Eeeek! So scary. Lucky nothing bad happened.

    But I agree, LRT, Komuters, buses seems to have an endless problem with technical difficulties. Any problem, just informed passengers they have technical problem.

  7. omg, where did this happen? which stop? >< Janice uses the lrt to work daily, they really should do better maintenance of the trains.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Lucky not that kind of explosion in Empire Shopping Gallery.

    ReplyDelete
  9. well, first of all, good thing that you are safe and so as the rest of the passengers...

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think the best way to deal with this kind of scenario is not to panic and be alert. We cannot predict or tell what will happen in the future... accident may occur in your most unexpected time and place so you have to be aware of it

    ReplyDelete
  11. You know what, since I am quite far from the city (Manila), I was able to ride on a LRT twice only...

    ReplyDelete
  12. I agree, regular maintenance should be implied knowing that this kind of vehicle carries a huge amount of passengers...

    ReplyDelete
  13. the "look-like-just-woke-up firemen" is so similar to our Policemen here... they will come very late in the crime scene which makes them useless... errr I'm not sure if you have read or watch on TV ,about the Hostage taking of those Hongkong nationals ... I am really upset with the action done by the policemen..

    ReplyDelete
  14. oh by the way.. regarding about the prize... no i haven't received it yet.. maybe this coming Monday.. woohoo so excited... thanks agaain and happy blogging

  15. Many people respond very slowly to emergency. I was at a shopping complex when there was a fire evacuation anouncement. All these ignorant people still shopping away like nothing happened. I took my family out of there as fast as I could!

    ReplyDelete
  16. 好彩仲可以开门,如果係火烛起上嚟嗰电动门shot咗,睇嚟你哋都要攞斧头劈门囉!呵呵呵~~~

    ReplyDelete
  17. Nothing will be really done unless there is casualties...

    ReplyDelete
  18. @Kelvin and if got casualties the relevant people will say "we will set up a committee to investigate..."

    ReplyDelete
  19. Only in Malaysia... Big hoo-haa when disaster strikes...only to be forgotten after a while. Sad, real sad... Tragic!

    ReplyDelete
  20. "paaakkk"? Not the tyre bursting?

    ReplyDelete
  21. oh wait, silly me. Trains don't run on tyres, kekekeke!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Malaysian is always in the "tak-apa" mood, hence the service is not unexpectedly bad. 15 mins is too long.. the whole station might be burned down with a few minutes if major accident really happened.

    ReplyDelete
  23. With minimal maintenance, technical problems occur here and there, tsk tsk!

    We don't have LRT or commuter in my town here. Less one type of accident :p

    ReplyDelete
  24. wah.... drama! haha... so far during my time I only experienced the train to break down but not explosion.

    The fireman sees nothing serious so they walk slowly la. haha....

    ReplyDelete
  25. hmmm..

    here, we have jeepney for transportation :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh my! Explosion?? So scary.. luckily you were all at the station.. imagine if it happened midway while you're in the middle of the tracks in the air.. how to evacuate?? :O Glad that you're ok!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wah, sounds scary and dangerous! Luckily everybody was ok!

    ReplyDelete
  28. So, did you walk home or waited for the next train? Or went jalan-jalan at the new mall or perhaps took in a movie?

    Glad no one was hurt. Did you later know what happened?

    ReplyDelete
  29. haha this experience just shows us how typical we malaysians are

    new post; Tee IP

    ReplyDelete
  30. if happen to me, I will slow response also . . . no awareness at all due to Malaysia too peaceful on surface lol!

    ReplyDelete
  31. but still, it wont stop me to take LRT, because LRT speed is 1000times more better than KTM! KTM speed like snail and waste of time, take 1 hour from Subang to KL Sentral to Midvalley.

    From Kelana LRT to KLCC it only take less than 1 hour . . .

    ReplyDelete
  32. LRT may reminds me of lots of memory XD

    take train go to KLCC to watch screening with friends

    and take train go to elsewhere or make a funky trip with only by using LRT station! GG hehe

    ReplyDelete
  33. If anything happened, I fast fast cabut 1st... kiasi mommy!:p

    ReplyDelete
  34. 消防员可能心想:根本就是小事,还要扰动我们,真麻烦!呵呵呵...

    ReplyDelete
  35. wah... this is scary! imagine if it is a big one... *shudder*

    ReplyDelete
  36. 我们的消防员养尊处优得太久了!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nowadays the LRT has been having a lot of probs as well. Always delay and auto-pilot gone haywire and stuffs causing me get to work late

  40. konnichiwa! dropping by =)

    ReplyDelete
  41. so scary! Reading your post had remind me the recent incident happened to Empire Shopping Gallery in Subang Jaya.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wow! So scary? Glad I am not taking LRT regularly!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Luckily it didn't happen halfway where you all would be dangling halfway between two stations!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I wonder if they do maintenance too. You know lah, Malaysians are not too strict on maintenance.

    ReplyDelete
  45. That bad? The firemen looked like they just woke up?! Haha!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. 0h my... that is dangerous. what if the cabin were to catch fire? :(

    ReplyDelete
  47. the rapidKL techs should really take a careful look into this matter. this isn't any joking matter.

    ReplyDelete
  48. the sad part is, will they do it? do they really maintain the trains? lets hope they earn enough of our money to do the right thing.

    ReplyDelete
  49. fire brigade arrived so late? if there was a fire, there wouldn't be anything more for them so save -_-;;

    ReplyDelete
  50. @ wenn:
    actually i was playing games and didn't know when i heard the chaos, haha~~

    @ 小雪:
    哈哈, 第一次搭就遇到故障?? 那是你不幸運還是LRT不幸運呢?? 幸好那時列車在站, 可以立刻跑出來..

    ReplyDelete
  51. @ lina:
    yes, i agree with you.. we only want to build the tallest, the biggest, the newest things.. but never have thought of maintenance and preserving them.. old already then replace with new ones lor, that's the philosophy!! aiks, luckily we were at the station and the train doors were still open when the engine exploded, so when somebody shouted and i was just by the door, quickly ran out, haha!! yalor, they never tell the passengers what happened, but just PA the pre-recorded technical problem announcement!! that's very bad right??

    @ Isaac Tan:
    it happened at the Sri Rampai station.. but luckily just minor one, and somemore the train was still at the station with the doors open, so we can run out immediately..

    ReplyDelete
  52. @ Bananazஇ:
    wah, if it was that kind of explosion in Empire Shopping Gallery, then i guess i may not be here to blog already~~ :p

    @ bluedreamer27:
    yes, it's just very lucky that the train was still at the station and the doors were still open when the engine exploded.. i was actually playing games there and didn't even realised until somebody shouted "run!!" and i was standing by the door, so very quickly and conveniently i just get out of the train, though i was still confused of what actually happened until i saw smoke coming out from the middle coaches of the train.. yeah, i do agree with you, because Malaysia is quite lucky to have been protected from major natural disasters, so people here are really not that sensitive to critical situations.. guess we really have to learn to be more alert to disasters, rather than to be more alert to the gossips, hahaha!! and that say our maintenance is not done properly, and not a surprise the management here never put maintenance at first priority.. haha, and those policemen are just the same as the firemen, haiz, really wonder how they are going to me more competent??

    ReplyDelete
  53. @ Pete:
    yes, that was what i meant exactly.. maybe we were too pampered with no major natural disasters, that is why people are so insensitive to emergency.. even during a fire evacuation, you can still see people chatting happily while strolling lazily..

    @ edward:
    係呀, 好彩列車仲喺個站度, 門又仲未閂囉.. 我其實玩緊電話唔係好清楚發生咩事, 不過聽到有人嗌, 我梗係咋咋臨行出列車啦..

    ReplyDelete
  54. @ Kelvin:
    but that will be too late already.. just the very malaysian spirit huh?? haiz~~

    @ Small Kucing:
    yes, and it will take like forever to investiage.. and things are normally close case because people have already forgotten about that incident already..

    ReplyDelete
  55. @ suituapui:
    oh yes, that's exactly what i meant in the comment reply to Small Kucing above.. i guess we are all too forgetful, many things are just left behind after a short while.. sad huh??

    @ yvonne:
    hahaha, trains where got tyres?? it was the engine that has exploded giving out that loud noise.. yeah, i think maybe that was not a disastrous accident, so that's why the firemen came late and acted like none of their business but just to do some formal procedural investigation only.. haiz, i really think they just put maintenance behind and never really seriously look into this matter.. all trains should be checked and maintained every night to ensure they are functioning well..

    ReplyDelete
  56. @ mNhL:
    that was also my very first time, last time maybe the bus engine broke down but explosion is really my first time.. so sad to say this but those firemen really were not serious at all..

    @ Mai Yang:
    haha, good, and i think at least jeepney will not explode and cause disastrous accidents right?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. @ iamthewitch:
    yes, luckily it was just a very minor explosion, and that the train was still at the station and the doors still opened.. and i was standing just by the door so i can quickly leave the train when i heard somebody shouted "keluar keluar"..

    @ Hayley:
    yes, i was quite scary but luckily it was just a minor one and nobody was hurt..

    ReplyDelete
  58. @ khengsiong:
    我唔知delay咗幾耐, 爆炸後我第一時間離開打的走人啦, 仲等?? :D

    @ toninkush:
    haha, very true!! really see the "tak apa" spirit with us, though we may seem very calm, how sad we are not even sensitive to emergencies right??

    ReplyDelete
  59. @ Kian Fai:
    i think it's common to most malaysians since we are all blessed with no major natural disastrous.. haha, accidents always happen and we cannot expect that, i still take LRT as it's just so convenient for me to get around the places i usually go.. haiyoh, of course the LRT is way better than the KTM lah, i've heard one day at the KTM station that they announced the train is delay because there's "kebakaran di stesen kajang"!! hilarious or not?? haha, looks like you are the LRT supporter huh, i've been taking LRT for many years too since it stated operations..

    @ Medie007:
    errr, i don't know because i left the train immediately and can only see smoke coming out from the middle coach..

    ReplyDelete
  60. @ Alice Law:
    haha, of course under such situation it's better for us to be kiasi lor.. but actually i was playing games that time and didn't really know what happen, haha!!

    @ bluecloud:
    應該是這樣吧, 要不然我覺得他們應該不會慢條斯理的走進車站吧?? 哈哈~~

    ReplyDelete
  61. @ Merryn:
    a bit scary lah, but if it was a big one, yours truly may not have probably sitting down here writing this post already~~ :p

    @ 山城大熊:
    哈哈, 不過也不能怪他們, 可能真的是小事一宗, 所以他們也懶得那麼緊張, 反正也是循例做一下檢查罷了..

    ReplyDelete
  62. @ toninkush:
    oh yes, the more they are in operations we see more problems.. the major reason i can see is they are not doing comprehensive maintenance on the trains and the tracks at all.. the philosophy is: just replace old ones with new ones, and we are good again.. so there goes our money too!! so you are taking LRT too??

    @ 海市蜃樓:
    嘩, 唔係咁黑暗呀化?? 咁要俾幾多奉祿先請得佢哋救火架??

    ReplyDelete
  63. @ Mai Yang:
    konnichiwa, thanks for dropping by again, haha~~

    @ Wai Kitt:
    oh, lucky that LRT explosion was just a very minor one.. and the train was still at station so we can just leave the train immediately..

    ReplyDelete
  64. @ foongpc:
    haha, explosions can happen anywhere lah, so you don't have to feel lucky, hahaha!! yes, that's true, luckily the train was at station and the doors were still open.. and i was standing just by the door, though i was so focused on my phone and didn't really know what happened, i just walk out immediately when i heard somebody shout.. hmmm, most probably once a month while they should have perform maintenance on every train every night?? haha, firemen, as always, look like they have just woke up from their nap~~ :D

    @ ladyviral:
    luckily it was just a minor explosion, i didn't know if there was a fire.. cos i just ran out when i heard people shouting and all i could see was just white smoke coming out from the cabin.. hmmm, white smoke means nothing burnt right?? yeah, that's very serious and the tech should really seriously look into maintenance.. but sadly you know, malaysians really rarely do maintenance.. haiz!! well, as for the firemen maybe they already knew there was nothing much to save, that's why they came in so late and sluggishly.. :D

  65. 當然葯上百啦,畀得少入屋救火嘅話,屋主會唔見財物囖。

    ReplyDelete
  66. wow, this is really scary!! but luckily it was just a minor engine explosion..

    ReplyDelete
  67. i somehow agree with you on malaysians' attitude, maybe we are too blessed with no major natural disasters, that's why we are less sensitive to emergency, but always curious to find out what happened first!! haha~~

    ReplyDelete
  68. very true!! i think they have not even have any maintenance so far (perhaps just by telling that they are), such engine explosion is very serious and i don't think it will happen if there is regular proper maintenance..

    ReplyDelete
  69. @ 海市蜃樓:
    其實我覺得就算你俾佢哋多啲, 屋內啲財物都唔會有太大保障囉..

    @ victor:
    yeah, luckily it was just a very minor engine explosion and breakdown and no injuries.. well, i really don't think they have done maintenance to the trains, or else it won't exploded right?? wow, thinking back that incident, still feeling a little scary actually..
