Do's and Dont's when taking LRT
LRT is a great transportation mode in the city. It is meant to release a certain amount of stress overloaded on us by the constant madness of the traffic in KL. It is definitely better than taking the horrendous buses in Puduraya. I would just shoot myself if I were to walk into Puduraya to catch a bus.

I used to work in KLCC and LRT is the greatest mode of transportation to get to work. At least I don't have to pay for ludicrous parking fees and be late for work. Also, it gave my leg muscles the right amount of workout that I needed.

However, my only discontent would be the overly crowded trains during peak hours. And you do know how certain people smell especially after a long day of perspiration.

I have taken trains in Hong Kong, Singapore and New York during the peak hours but none smelt like how the trains in Malaysia do. I just can't understand why. If you were to say its because of the weather that makes us perspire more compared to Hong Kong and New York, then what about Singapore? I believe that Singapore is just as hot and humid as Malaysia is.

Considering that 2007 is the year to Visit Malaysia, I believe that tourists are heavily dependent on our railway system to access to various parts of the city. This would mean that they would also have go through the same torment that we do everyday and go back to their motherland with not a very pleasant memory. More like a foul smelling memory.

I have found out that I am not the only one who took notice of this irritating social problem.
Hence, Thomas, my fellow LRT passenger came up with this notice to supplement the existing notice that PUTRA has put in place.

Some people may be illiterate so graphical representation of these prohibitions would be even more effective.

Happy Visiting Malaysia!

    Oh my this is freaking funny. If there is any smell that can make me pass out, it has to be a sweaty Bangala with a head full of coconut (plus sweat from the scalp oil glands) scented hair cream/oil/wax. Ermm...not being racist though. I really bumped into one standing next to me in the monorail and he was gawking at me but I had nowhere to run. Had to endure 3 stops some more, gosh!

    Well! Well! It is Malaysian culture. Being stink is not an issue. My office has a SMELLY FOX whom does not feel shame even we have complaint a lot. Damn! We are planning to buy him perfume for his coming birthday. Adrianne, you are lucky comparing mine. 3 stops vs life time sentence... Gosh!

    I used to experience those, in the bus, shopping centers, cinema, everywhere. The Malaysian public need to be educated on smell hygene extensively.

    What's worse is when you're standing beside some guy on the bus with his hands on the holder thus his armpit facing you and there's sweat stain, it stinks! Yucks.

    Ongzilla: I once saw a tall guy with has hands on the holder and a lady facing his armpit real close. And that stupid woman faced it for like 5 minutes before she realized she was smelling someone's armpit.HAAahha, such a dumbass.
