[Volume 8 Issue 10, #1804]
我差不多每曰都會搭LRT, 而且不經不覺就咁一搭就搭咗十幾年, 所以呢十幾年來可以話係見盡喺LRT內各種不同嘅人.. 由每曰差不多時間都會見到嘅熟悉面孔, 到一啲我本人覺得佢哋非常之騎呢嘅乘客, 其實搭車嘅時候無所事事, 偷偷地observe車廂內其他乘客都不失為一種消磨時間嘅好方法.. 之前提及過乞人憎乘客, 不過今日要講嘅呢一啲人唔就知道應該點形容.. 幾個乘客一齊上車, 明明係認識嘅, 但係偏偏又唔坐埋一齊, 跟住又要隔住條巷高聲交談喎!! 車廂內(除咗車廂因年久失修而發出嘅吱吱聲)一向都係幾安靜㗎啦, 突然有人高聲交談, 我覺得係幾騷擾囉.. 尤其係一啲你聽唔懂嘅語言, 聽得懂都暫且可以八卦一下交談內容, 聽唔懂就真係覺得似噪音多啲喎.. 其實又唔係街市, 唔駛咁大聲嘅, 況且俾全車人聽到晒交談內容, 會開心啲咩?? 我如果喺車廂內講電話, 都會避忌下啦~~ @_@"
i commute by LRT almost everyday, and unknowingly have already been commuting in this way for more than a decade, hence i can say that i have seen all kinds of people inside the LRT over these years.. from those familiar faces i meet about the same time everyday to some passengers that i personally think they are weird, actually when there's really nothing much to do in the train, secretly observing other passengers in the coach can be a very good activity to kill time.. i've mentioned about some irritating passengers, but i do not know how to describe these people i shall talk about today.. a few passengers board the train, they know each other actually yet do not want to sit next to each other, and once seated they start to talk to each other loudly across the aisle!! the coach (other than the squeaking sound due to the under-maintained old train) is usually quiet, when people suddenly talk loud, i would think it's quite disturbing.. especially when they are talking in a language alien to you, if they are talking in a language you understand, at least you can gossip a bit what they are talking, else it actually sounds more like irritating noise.. it's not in the market and i don't think we need to talk so loudly, furthermore allowing every other passenger hear what you are talking about, isn't any nice right?? even if i'm to talk in the phone inside the train, i would try to avoid being heard~~ @_@"

    2. hmmm, the LRT wasn't packed at all this morning, or perhaps i was late and everyone has already been to work?? maybe some are still on holiday, seeing it's almost year end and everyone started to clear leave..

    3. Last time, I used to take LRT from Gombak to Bangsar. First station. Not crowded yet.

      Still can jostle for seat and sleep all the way to my stop. Hahaha

      Delete
    4. i am boarding at the 3rd station, so sometimes if i'm not in a rush, i will take a detour to Gombak and stay in the train while it reverse direction (towards my destination).. like that guaranteed can get into the train and also have a seat.. :D

      Delete
    5. I do that sometimes. Especially boarding t KLCC or Ampang Park. The queue to KL usually were much longer so I'd ride reverse and then alighted a few stations after that just so I can ride in a near empty train.

      We do think alike! Hi-5! ;)

      Delete
    6. hahaha, high five!! and you know what, i will detour to stations that have connected platform (platform between two tracks), so that i do not have to get up and down and go to the platform opposite to go back to the reverse direction (tracks between two platforms), and if possible too, i also choose underground station with aircond lah~~

      Delete
    7. if not rushing for time then can do this la LOL.

      Delete
    8. Rushing also can do if the station too packed and cannot enter the train already. HAHAHA

      Delete
    9. sometimes just have to do that.. the train too packed until cannot get in also, might as well detour rather than wait.. but i think now with the 4-coach LRT, there is no such problem already..

      They declined and continued talking! WTH???????????????

    4. 小影,
      If no seats also, have to be so loud and disturb others?

      Anyway, SK did mention "they know each other actually yet do not want to sit next to each other, and once seated they start to talk to each other loudly across the aisle!! " this means they had the option of seating next to each other wor...

      I've met quite a few crazies like that.

    5. true, I would feel awkward if I'm sandwiched in between two people talking to each other.

    6. there are plenty of seats and also joined empty seats, not that the train is packed with passengers, yet those people still want to sit separately and then talk loudly across the aisle.. really cannot understand lah..

    4. definitely, i think speaking loud (though it's natural for some people and not their intention) is kind of not polite lah.. and yeah, i think it's the environment and some really get used to talk loud, i personally don't really appreciate that, can be quite irritating like you are being scolded~~ :D

  8. I heard japan the ppl in the train very civilised punya wor. No using phone in the train so that lessen noise pollution. True ka? Ah boy been to Japan before. And that when they go in and out of the train they will beratur. Let ppl come out first baru go in. Not pushing to get in before people get out

    1. yes, it's super quite inside the train!! i think they will either switch off their phone or at least have them on silent mode.. i don't remember anyone talking on the phone in the train.. yalah, the Japanese are really very polite nation, haiz, our bolehland can never do that lah..

      Delete
    2. How do they become that way?

      Education.

      Enforcement.

      There, the elementary students are taught about growing up properly in a community. Kids there do not have exams till middle school.

      So... in a way, we have to blame ourselves for the bad behaviour of our own society.

      We value straight As.

      We don't value polite society here.

      Delete
    3. the thing is that, CONSIDERATION to others is really an optional thing in our mindset!! we were brought up in such a background that ourselves is more important then the rest.. while not understanding the Japanese too much, at least i know they are brought up to be polite and considerate, they always blame their ownselves first before anyone..

      Delete
    4. True True True.

      That's the other word I was looking for. CONSIDERATION.

      How do we get considerate. By being raised with proper values.

      In that video, once you heard someone speak loudly in the phone, you should get out your phone and pretend talk to your friend, telling him/her that you can't anything cause you're in a market!!! Hahaha!!! =]

    6. haha, sometimes it could be because of the poor reception of it's really so soft that we shout in the phone "HARLO HARLO CAN HEAR??" which i find it kind of amusing sometimes.. :D

  10. Never used LRT, not quite user friendly, escalators always not working...unlike the MRT in Singapore or the London underground.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Used to naik LRT daily.

      Still naik LRT on and off.

      Escalators might be not in service once in a while.

      But no problem. I got kaki to walk up the stairs.

      I think for OKU, there're options to ride up to the platform too.

      DOn't be too hard on our LRT. Use and try the service first. Much too often, we slam it without really having first hand experience using it.

      It might not be a first class service.

      But with more people using, hopefully public transportation in Malaysia will finally be on par with developed countries.

      Right, Cikgu?

    2. maybe the Sibu Food Mayor is too pampered by his friends to drive him around in private cars to anywhere he wants to go, hence he has not had a chance to take LRT at all while he is in KL.. but since he has not taken the LRT before, i am really curious how does he know that it's not quite user friendly and escalators always not working??

      very true Lina.. if escalator not working, then just walk or take the stairs.. even when the escalator is working perfect i also walk on the escalator to save time.. and i actually do no think our LRT system is that bad, for i have been commuting by LRT almost daily for more than 10 years, i find it kind of convenient also.. of course cannot compare with what our neighbours of some other countries have, at least better than our bus system lah..

    7. Buses now... hmmmm

      I actually miss BMW (bas mini wilayah). They were aplenty. They sped like demons. They were cheap.

      Actually, last time when I was a bus user, I liked using Len Seng buses. Usually the bus I wait & rode to work arrives roughly at the same time.

      Funny, the Len Seng buses have colourful tickets and I used to collect them! Really! Hahaha

      Delete
    8. hahaha, BMW kind of nice!! most of the time if the traffic was smooth, you will always arrive at your destination ahead of time.. the driver surely sped so that they can make more rounds of journey to earn more money lah, i guess they earn commission from the tickets sold right??

      oh, Len Seng bus!! i have been relying on this for like 20 years!! it's the Setapak monopoly until Intrakota and later RapidKL came in.. they are still operating you know??

      Delete
    9. I prefer Len Seng buses (even those without air-con ones) over Intrakota (or rapidKL or whatever you call them now).

      Maybe one day I'll ride one again, for nostalgia sake? Hahaha

      Used to board them from Sogo to go to my rented room in Jln Genting Klang after my date. Ahahaha

      Delete
    10. Actually with LRT, a trip is made simpler. For me, at least. Last time, want to get to Ampang Park from Bangsar must change two buses. With LRT, it's just an LRT ride away.

      So, whatever people complain, LRT did and still does make my travelling easier.

      It's my mode of choice to KLCC.

      Delete
    11. hahaha, it would be nice to board a Len Seng if you have the time and mood!! but i think it's getting quite rare now, and probably you'd have to wait for quite some time if you missed that one.. eih, Jalan Genting Klang very convenient lah, almost all Len Seng will pass by (except those that go to Air Panas and Gombak).. i stayed in the slum in Genting Klang last time, you know that piece of land behind the Prima Setapak Condo??

      errr, the LRT may not necessarily make the trip simpler.. remember the interchange stations are just that pathetic few and far apart.. you probably have to make a big detour to get to the interchange for another line.. but of course, still a more comfortable option to commute i would say :p

      Delete
    12. I missed the mini bus. Those were the days when I was in KL.

  13. Good morning Bloggers! Another hot topic, I might spam until 100 comments but I better go slow. Nanti out of control spamming.

    I have taken both the LRT and Putra lines many times at almost different peak hours. I would say that in the morning's rush hours and after office hours, you can see many well dressed commuters inside the Putra lines heading to office or home after work. They would carry brief cases and smell of perfumes. It made me think that many people from PJ work in offices in the city.

    The line heading to Ampang and Sri Petaling routes are more mixed crowd, so the train becomes interesting inside to observe the passengers who come from all races and nationalities. We have a good mix of crowd like rojak and that's fun.

    1. From my own little experience taking subway trains in overseas, it is easy for me to conclude that the most pleasant rides are those in Japan and the worst is definitely some trains in China which could drop your jaws every minute in disbelief.

      Delete
    2. The worst mainlanders was rated due to their noisy people screaming over their mobile phones to attract listeners who would pause and curi dengar. I had to ask wife many times to explain their conversations when I noticed some people were giggling or trying to hard not to burst of laughing!! These phone users are like street comedians to me, doing some Gag concerts in the trains. They are quite thick skin lah.

      Delete
    3. Maybe I should also rank the most scary rides are those subway lines in New York City that passes through the Queen and linked to Harlem or Bronx which are very notorious. The folks from there could be rowdy and stink of pee or alcohol. Even those subways in the notorious areas were often wet with kencing la. My cousin and I saw water leaking from the ceiling which freaked me out to open an umbrella to shield ourselves as they could be kencing flowing down from upper floors. Muahahahaha

    4. Anay,
      You have experience a lot using trains around the world yet you don't really hantam our own LRT despite whatever weaknesses our public transportation is.

      I find this refreshing after reading those who simply hantam our system and praise to the sky others.

      I have to say one thing, at least while taking LRT here in Malaysia I never experience drunken people riding it. Thank goodness.

      I don't have much experience being abroad. What little I did experience, I really hate the reek of alcohol by fellow commuters. Blergh...

      Delete
    5. interesting experiences from Anay on his LRT/ trains/ metro/ subway rides in different countries around the world!! hmmm, i have to agree with that in Japan and China.. so clean and so quiet, it is always a very pleasant ride in Japan.. but scariest experience being in Beijing where i was pushed in and out of the train without myself the need to move my own legs!! i didn't have a good experience with that, so i chose to forget, hence i really cannot recall my train ride in Beijing now, hahaha!! have not been to US, but i think HK MTR can be kind of noisy because everyone seems to talk in the train face to face or over the phone, and HK people are always used to talk loud - the surrounding environment is too polluted with noise..

      i agree with Lina too, at least throughout my 10 over years of experience taking LRT in Malaysia, i really have not seen people drunk or pee in the train, and the leaking could be just temporary due to the super cold aircond under super hot weather.. so at least it's better than US?? haha~~ :D

  14. I actually love to take subway trains in overseas as they will save my time and money a lot. I could also exercise my eye balls and observe the true colours of the foreigners inside the trains. They could be picking their noses, staring hard at other boobs, sleep with mouth wide open or quarreling with their mates and so on. I could enjoy looking at their sense of dressing fashions especially in Fall or Winter which their lovely designer jackets could make me weak!

  16. I'm still OK with using LRT. At least Lrt no need to wait long like komuter.

    But komuter, apart from the long wait, the ride itself is good. It'll take me about half an hour to drive from Mines to Mid Valley. A train ride takes just 17minutes. For RM1.50. Save petrol. Save environment. Save toll. Now... if only I don't need to wait 40minutes for that 17minutes ride! Huhuhu

    I love it when the ride is all so quiet and everyone just talk in hush voices.

    But occasionally we'd hear one person who seems to be having hearing problem and has to shout talking to her/his phone. Aduhh...

      yeah, i really wonder when will people be at least 50% as mindful and respecting as the Japanese commuters?? not to say i worship their culture, but then i think it's a good thing and really worth to be practiced.. agree??

    1. Oh, at first I thought you wanna blog about 低头一族 today, by looking at the photo. But seems like you blog about something else, hehe.
      I want to say from what I observe when taking BTS (MRT in Bangkok) during my Bangkok trip, 9 out of 10 are playing with their phones. I believe this is what happened at Malaysia too!
      Oh, 9 out of 10 are 低头一族, then the remaining 1 is sleeping, keke~

    2. I used to take LRT very often when I was still schooling at UM. From the University station to the one near Pudu (forgot what's the station name) especially, I got home sick that time and always travel home by bus, haha xD (Also to meet my then-bf :p)

      Yep I agree, we surely can see lots of people with lots of 'patterns' when taking the LRT.

    3. And the situation you mentioned, I know how you feel. I too very annoyed with these kinda people. Come on, it's a PUBLIC transportation and not belong to you alone only, everyone paid for it. Please be considerate la! I just don't understand why can't these people be polite and must talk so loud like that!!
      If for me I'll give a stare at him/her, hopefully he will realize and slow down the volume.

    4. And I think not only happened in LRT, other places also, like in a yoga class for example (if you remember I've blogged about similar topic last time). It's so quiet inside but suddenly people can talk like nobody is there one, their voices surely pollute the air and it's so irritating! I don't care if they speak in my language or alien I just don't wanna hear what they talk!
      Ish comment til I am abit angry pula! xD (actually these kinda people still exist in the yoga class, tsk tsk tsk!)

    5. hahaha, cannot write about 低头一族 lah, because i am definitely one of them, so it can be quite awkward to write about myself mah!! :D

      oh, so you were in UM last time?? wow, orang pandai lah can get into UM!! so you take the LRT to puduraya to take a coach back to Taiping right?? ah, probably Masjid Jamek station then??

      yalah, i actually find it quite impolite to talk loud, maybe just me lah.. but i think if you say those aunties also talk loud in the yoga class, i think it's even worse than inside the train!! haha.. at least it's noisier in the train than in the yoga class!! everyone very quite in the class, then suddenly the auntie talks so loud - aiyoh, a bit siah suei lah i think~~ :D

  22. Contrary to Sharon, I prefer to take MRT in S'pore cos MRT is faster and bus is slow and have to stop at traffic lights. The MRT line in Singapore covers Singapore quite well now cos we have the West Line, East Line, North East Line, North South Line and Circle Line as well, very well covered.

    1. yeah, i also find MRT more convenient and more comfortable lah.. though MRT in SG often got problem and you probably got stuck in there for hours, haha!! but i have to admit, KL trains can never fight with your MRT lah, so well covered..

  25. But not long ago (can't remember the date), the SMRT in Singapore experienced a "trap" underground, where the train was stranded underground for quite a while, if you happened to read the news.

    1. So guess they were poh-peh-poh-peh-ing all the way from the time you got up until the time you got down, heh? haha... Yeah, I agree, if I understand the language they are talking, then I can gossip or make stories or make some jokes out of their conversation. But if they speak languages that I do not know, errr, then it sounds strange la, haha.. malu also if I am near them, the feeling macam I can't wait to get down asap..

    2. When I saw got 103 comments for this post, I guess this topic must be hot. haha.

    3. yeah, can see some irritating and weird people in the train.. but also can be fun observing different kind of people lah.. hahaha, luckily as the train gets more packed with people, they stop talking lah, because got people standing in the aisle blocking them seeing each other.. really weird, i don't understand why they didn't want to sit together??

      foreign language depends on what language lah.. if japanese or french which sounds soft to me is okay and i enjoy listening to that.. but like korean or shanghainese then they are often loud!! worse still if you are sitting in between them :p

  27. By the way, when you were stuck in this situation and had to listen to the whole thing, did you stare at them, or laughed, or tried to control laughing, or make some malu face?

  30. You know lar...Taiping where got... if go KL sure naik kereta. LRT, I can't remembered when is my last time taking them. :D
    But can't say I've never experienced it. There was a few times, taking them from Masjid Jamek. If I'm not mistaken, I never faced with those irritating passengers. Maybe my route was a short one... hehehe...

    2. Last time, I've traveled around SG with their MRT. I'm not sure about the rest, but SG's MRT is the best one for me. I feel more awkward when I saw people kissing inside lor. So what you think? which one is more irritating?
