A Scene at the Komuter Station's Platform

Captured this photo at Subang's Komuter Train's Platform while I was on a trip to Mid-Valley Mall. The beautiful sari of this lady captured my attention!
Our public transportation system requires lotsa improvement. It took me 1 hour by bus to reach the Komuter Train station from my home in USJ. Half an hour from Subang to reach KL Sentral (the main station). Another half hour (including waiting for the train) to reach Mid-Valley from KL Sentral. In total, it was a 2-hour journey by public transport. Under usual traffic condition, it would take about 45 mins for me to drive down there! I would certainly avoid any opportunity of taking the public transport in the future! Unless our public transportation system can be improved.

what a beautiful sari and a lovely thing to capture - shame the public transport is not up to scratch. We have some good services here but it depends where you want to get to.

Yes, I love taking photos of the street scenes in KL too. Full of activities. I must agreed on the traffic jams during peak periods, could be very frustrating. Over here traffic jams are improved during peak periods because of the ERP, and the ERP is not popular with most of us because we need to pay whether you are driving or taking the cabs. Each time the vehicle passed through the ERP gantry, you could heard the peep sound, means money being deducted on the cash

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
