Peak Hour @ KTM Station

Peak hour at the Mid Valley KTM commuter train station was a daunting experience. In addition, it was going to be a long weekend with Hari Raya Haji falls on Sunday and Monday would be a public holiday. Many city dwellers are leaving for their hometown and the crowd at the train station was overwhelming. Some couldn't get on the train as it was sardine-packed. It's tough as that meant another 30-40 minutes of waiting for the next KTM commuter train to arrive.

Each time I take a public transport, my frustration never fails to raise! Our public transport systems suck! They still need a lot of improvement. I hope our government will allocate more funds to improve our public transport systems. It is wrong for our government to aim to be a high-income nation when basic needs such as systematic public transport is yet in place! I would rather our government put more effort in improving our basic necessities before it aims for something that may benefit only a small group of people!

"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
