[Volume 7 Issue 11, #1612]
喺輕快鐵車廂內, 我通常都係選擇企.. 第一, 以我胖大身軀同其他乘客排排坐, 大家會好逼夾.. 第二, 既然我選擇坐低, 我又唔係好想讓位俾人.. 所以為大眾著想又好, 為自己著想又好, 索性全程企冇咁嬲.. 講到企, 我就最喜歡企喺如圖中門側邊同座位之間嘅一條罅.. 企喺呢度, 保證你可以全程企得舒服, 唔怕俾人逼撞, 唔怕企得太入要落車嘅時候需要沖破重重關口.. 而且最重要係企得攰喇, 可以有嘢俾你靠住, 確實係一個最佳位置呀.. 不過個位其實係為坐輪椅嘅傷殘人士特設嘅, 如果遇到佢哋就記得要讓位喇~~ :)
i don't usually sit but prefer to stand when i'm in the LRT.. first, my huge body will cramp everyone if sitting side by side.. second, if i happen to sit then i am quite reluctant to give my seat to others later.. hence, for myself or for other passengers, i would rather stand the whole journey.. talking about standing, i always like to stand in between the side of the doors and the row of seats, as seen in the photo above.. i guarantee you can stand in comfort there, no need to be pushed by others, no need to be afraid of getting too deep into the coach and find it tough to get out.. most importantly, when you are tired you can always lean on the walls too, definitely a strategic spot to stand huh?? anyway, this spot is actually meant for those on wheelchairs, if you see any please remember to let them occupy that space.. :)

  2. That used to be at least a 30-min stand each way going and coming back from work then? You do have strong legs.

    1. SK, I support your for standing in the train. That helps burning your fat. I like to stand too. When I am inside my boss's room. He always invited to take seat. I woulud politely say thanks, then I said I prefer to stand. Because talking to him is already a waste of my valueble time, might as well choose to stand. At least I can console myself, I have burn some calories by standing inside his room. This is my Ah Q spirit.

    2. yeah, it's about 25-30min ride for me.. and i actually realize by carrying my bag and standing my back actually start to feel pain.. i think not because of standing but because i am still carrying my sling bag with my laptop in it.. that's why sometimes i need to lean against the glass or get myself a seat..

      Delete
    3. Ya, ya, agree wholly with Yannie. Although I'm such a lazy bum, I prefer to stand. It's convenient and it makes me feel like, "I'm on the go".

      Yannie, I declined boss' offer to take a seat because it means longer discussion in his room. Usually I would find excuses to come out faster :p

    4. guys standing okay la. Not as if SK is 7 old 80. Give the space to those who need it.

      Standing also good la. At least wont feel guilty when see old folks or pregnant ladies standing.

      you use sling bag ah...why not try bag pack. then more balanced right?

      Delete
    5. yalah, don't sit in the boss room, just stand and it will make the discussion shorter..

      yeah, better stand so that won't feel guilty when see pregnant ladies and old folks coming in.. instead, can stare at those people who are sitting and give signal to them to give the seats to them!! haha~~

    2. sure can la, STP. can fit a wheelchair there what. Unless of course not, if you are wider than a wheelchair. :-D

    3. That space is big enough for SK to do the invisble chair pose. SK, by doing that pose in your train ride. You burn extra 200 calories when you reach your destination.

    4. errr, depends on how you stand lah STP.. if your back is leaning on the glass i think should have enough space.. if trying to lean between then handle and the glass, definitely impossible, i can't even do that, haha!!

      Delete
    5. STP needs to stand in the middle. If he leans, the coach might tilt on one side and get derailed!!!!!

      Delete
    6. Muahahahaha! TM is so bad, STP isn't that HUGE, wokay. Did you read the news today on Yahoo that a big-sized woman of 407 pounds was denied flights home and died abroad?

      Psst.... STP is how many pound? Kekekeke!

    7. 220, the last time I weighed and the spring in the weighing scale did not break... Muahahahahahaha!!!!

    8. LOL.....choy choy choy what derailed pulak . jahat la.

      Really wor. if sk didnt say it's for wheel chair i didnt know. Coz i see the signboard say preg woman old folk seat is next to the door.

      I still cannot imagine how that space can masuk one wheel chair..is it ipat the wheel chair and the person sit in the LRT seat.

      Delete
    9. haha, anay you so mean lah.. only if STP is 550 pounds then maybe the train will tilt one side lah, but he is only 220 lbs lah, not very heavy lah.. *wink wink*

      oh, meow, true also woh.. the people masuk and sit on the seat and then leave their wheelchair there.. possible also woh..

    4. Ah, forgotten about my manners and greetings!

      Good afternoon, everyone! I spent less than a year commuting LRT and I was such a lazy person (still the same now) that I opt to sit back then. I was slim and young and could afford to squeeze my small butt in between 2 big fat aunties.

      I don't think I can do that anymore nowadays. My butt expands after giving birth twice!

      Delete
    5. hahaha, Zaini doesn't like your two legs berkangkang too much!! yalah, that spot is the best one in the LRT, i always aim for that..

      yalor, sometimes i don't want to sit because i'm afraid i will embarrass myself.. before i sit down, the other passengers have lots of space, after i sit down, everyone cramps together!!

  8. I don't know why I don't like the layout and type of seats offered in our coaches. It seems that overseas trains have better seats and layout with lesser noise when moving. Am I just prejudice?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no, you are not prejudiced. Our let and komuter coach do feel more cramped.

      And yeah, they sure are noisy. Ppl got complain since day 1 of operation, but the noise level only came down a little, barely negligible lower bit. :(

      Delete
    2. oh ya lor...the sharp sound when it goes under ground at masjid jamek there very irritating to the ears la. It's like finger nails against black board.

      I find LRT seats is still okay la. But i dont like KTM seat. Thought KTM seat is soft . but sometimes duno kids or who the heck tumpang water /shh shh/whatever on the seat.

      I kena before coz the seat dark colour so not noticeable mah. Sat down...aiyok! skirt wet ! some more duuno what water is that!....that is why i prefer LRT seat. at least when have water , then i can see

      Delete
    3. i'm okay with the seats afterall i rarely take the seats unless the train is super empty.. but i really cannot stand the squeaking noice, especially when they are making twist and turns on the track and especially in the underground tunnel, the squeaking noice is defeaning.. the maintenance guys must be just sleeping when they claim they are maintaining the train system over the night..

      haiyoh, of course the LRT is way better than the KTM lah.. but i saw a few very new KTM trains, i wonder if they are a lot better now?? seldom take KTM lah, most of the time i try to avoid KTM, haha!! :D

    2. Kiasu mode?

      When I first boarded the train, I was so afraid and timid that I would get lost if I missed my destination. Thus, I always hogged the door while my destination was a few station away, and I thick-skinned stood there and let other commuters having difficult time moving in and out ~~:p

      Delete
    3. haha, sit or stand also must find a good spot one.. not for feng shui but how strategic the place is for you to get in and out of the train easily..

      Ah Hua don't joke lah, how can you get lost?? if missed your destination, then just get off the train, catch another train in the opposite direction to go back lah..

    1. STP, he sure finds chance to squeeze with sweet young things, otherwise, how he managed to snap this picture with his favorite spot was still empty. So, I suspect he must be squeezing with someone at the seat opposite his favorite spot, when he took this picture.

    2. hahaha...cheapthrill ah? No gua.. That small space. Unless SK kena molest by ladies la. LOL....

      sitting down in LRT also not that best leh. Sometimes, got ppl bring big bag or what standing in front of you. The train corner aje..the bag will swish to your face.

      also blocking the view leh...how to start in front...stare infront then will be staring at someone's HCP or banana part lor...manyak jialat leh. Play handphone, later the battery habis....

    3. that spot is on both sides of the doors mah, and i was standing on one side taking photo of the other side.. can see from the angle right?? if i were squeezing in the crowd for the cheapo thrills, then all you can see in the photo are butts and breasts, ooopss i mean also chests, in that photo wat~~ :D

      hahaha!!! meow so experience in taking LRT lah.. very true and so funny with what she said lor.. really cracks me up!! hahahaha~~ so better play with the phone to avoid all those embarrassment lah..

  12. and you know what I hate most when commuting on the lrt? Train so packed yet some people like to lean their whole body on the tiang in the middle of the coach. Others need to hold on to the tiang too, and hv to touch the fella/gal back/bidy. Ticks.

    Must be their back so fragile need to sandar on the tiang instead of standing straight. :S

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Actually, it is better to stand straight, with the tummy and buttock all tucking in. This is the best pose in Yoga. Might as well, practise some Yoga pose in the train ride, that helps burning some fat. Actually leaning on something is a bad posture le!

    2. Yan, yes yes.. That's a good Yoga practice! But will feel tired very quickly..

    3. exactly!! i hate those who block the entrance/exit.. and those who lean like a snake on the handle, sometimes i really feel like scolding them lah..

      hehehe, i think Mak Yannie sure very tempted to practice her Pole Danding in the train.. the handles are just the right tool for her~~

    4. I can't remember the details, hold the pole or the bar on the ceiling? If angkat tangan tinggi-tinggi to hold the bar..... ketiak busuk and smell after office hours, Ah Hua faints lo!

    5. hahaha...ketiak busuk or got water patch there.

      Ya wor...those who stand middle there hogging the tiang also very "hak yan chang".

      one more is when wanna exit that time, people will sibuk push in. wait la till people go out first. Why so kiasu la

      Delete
    6. hahaha, like that Ah Hua you must not hold on to the bar on top lah.. just hold the pole and you can pretend to be a pole dancer mah~~ :D

      meow, for those sibuk push in ah.. i will use my fat body to force them to back off lor.. did that few time lah.. purposely walk out of the train and push them backwards..

      Delete
  13. yes, that space is meant for the handicapped. But guess it's no harm you occupied it first. When any handicapped should get on the train, you have to give way. Of course you would surely do that.

  18. Is it so spacious in the train nowadays? Or there is less commuters at the time you snapped this picture? How about peak-hour?

    I remember the overcrowded commuters whenever I hopped into the train donkey years ago. Or maybe Kommuter has a lot of commuters? Yes? No? I seldom take LRT because I was a poor student and can only afford the Metro bus or KTM Kommuter.

    Met a robbery incident at Puduraya LRT and then stopped commuting.

    1. it's off peak hours la. Otherwise it would still be jam packed like sardine.

      I pernah go KLCC and "forgot" the time ...see it's 5.30pm liao...wanna go take LRT. Wah lau eh....terkejut...wanna go to buy pass also cannot . super long queue leh. end up go back upstairs walk a few more rounds then baru go back

      Delete
    2. i think since they have the new trains with 4 coach, things are getting a lot better.. so i always wait for the 4 coach trains, i will skip the old 2 coach trains because the shorter trains are always more packed.. the longer ones are more comfortable.. but then the longer ones are also very cold, they switched on the aircond to the max..

    2. If I travel in LRT nowadays, it'll be a short trip also. Usually from Bangsar to CM or Masjid Jamek (this one because I go collect race kit at Dataran) or to KLCC to meet hubby. Less than 20min. Easier to stand than fight for seats. ;p

      To me the worst culprit of not giving up seats are young ladies.

      When I was pregnant, young ladies (those in their 20s) will not stand up until kena "sound". Why? They think they are pretty no need to be nice ke? Cheh!
