[Volume 7 Issue 5, #1422]
究竟係我生得似LRT工作人員, 定係我個樣睇落非常友善精明, 所以最近三日唔埋兩日, 就肯定有其他乘客選擇問我「要去XXX係唔係呢度??」.. 有啲我仲明明見佢哋睇咗個路線圖, 都仲要再三求證?? 我哋嘅LRT就得一條線咋噃, 唔係南就係北㗎啦, 點講都唔算複雜啩?? 俾著去到其他先進國家, 西方國家唔講喇, 就臨近幾個城市喇, 齋睇眼都花嘅路線圖, 我都擔心呢啲人(問路問到口干)都會蕩失囉老實講.. 又或者講真一句, 係唔係我哋嘅LRT提供複雜不明確嘅指引, 因而混淆乘客?? 哈哈~~ :D
i wonder if i look like a staff of the LRT, or i look so friendly and smart, hence there are frequently other passengers who choose to ask me "is this the correct direction to XXX??".. but our LRT has only one line, if not north-bound then it's south-bound, can't be considered as any complicated right?? given in other developed countries, let's not say western countries but just few nearby cities, even just looking at the map can already make us dizzy, i am so worry these people may get lost (even if they ask till their throats get sore).. or maybe frankly, it's our LRT that gives complicated and unclear instruction that confused passengers?? haha~~ :D

  7. those who were asking for the right direction don't have the sense of direction... like they are always dizzy that do not know where they are going..... I don't want to say they can't read lah..... wkwk

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nothing wrong in asking for direction than getting totally lost, especially when you are late for an appointment! ;p

      Delete
    2. well, I agree on that point. But did you know that some are asking directions just for the sake of asking? Or some guys do ask directions just to get that beautiful lady's attention. lol

      Delete
    3. If you go to Japan, you see lots of Japanese asking for direction. We were like - man, don't you all do your homework before you step out of the house.

      It's because it's easier to ask, I guess. ;p

      Delete
    4. lol. yeah, it's easier to ask than figuring out where you next. wkwkw

      Delete
    5. I bet those who are lacking the sense of direction are females; and reluctant to ask for direction are mostly males (remember the book, "Why men don't listen and women can't read maps")

      Delete
    6. oh, I haven't come across that book yet. I'm no bookworm :(

  43. SK, does the LRT maps come in bilingual or trilingual?

    Some old Chinese aunties doesn't read/speak BM or English. And some old folks can't read at all. It's easier to ask than to stare blankly at the map.

    So good SK lends helping hands to those in-need.
