Mission Rapid Transit

Out of excitement over the coming soon MRT project which runs through our area, the Fong Dynasty decided to send a 4-strong Mission Rapid Transit (MRT) commission to inspect and review the nearest MRT system, in none other than the Island Republic – Singapore! Upon reaching, the MRT Commission was graciously received by the Jurong East branch of the Fong Dynasty. From left : Jurong East branch First Lady, Kajang branch Laksamana, Jurong East branch president, Kajang branch Syahbandar, Bendahara and Temenggung. 


Overview of the S’pore MRT system:


One thing is, it’s very easy to get around in the island. Out of the apartments you can go a bus stop (near), ride to the stations and ride the MRT to get around. With frequencies of around 5 mins per train, it’s more unlikely to find yourself in a sardine packed train as in KTM. Bus drivers are quite well-mannered, not RapidKL live-wire, easily combustible drivers. MRT Commission’s conclusion : Our guys can learn a lot from here.

Of course, the MRT Commission also came to play! From the moment we touched down in the city, all we can see are Christmas, Christmas and more Christmas. Endless blocks of shopping centres around City Hall and Orchard Road, when the night sets in the whole street glows with shades of blue, purple, red etc. by hanging lightbulbs all around. Locals and tourists (and MRT Commission members) all came to throng the streets to revel in the festive atmosphere.

The MRT Commission is also in other words, tourists :- therefore visiting tourist attractions are the norm. In the island there is the Sentosa Island, the Merlion and the two new casinos. But being responsible emissaries of the Fong Dynasty, we just merely took ‘some’ pictures outside!

The famous attractions, Merlion and the Marina Bay Sands were not spared by the Commission members! Here’s showing the prowess of the Laksamana:-The innovation of the Bendahara:-The appetite of the Syahbandar:-And of course, the power of the Temenggung!

Finally, the MRT Commission Team’s conclusion of their ‘study trip’ :

“So Tired!”

Seems like they’ve actually played more!
