and all i can say was," oh..um...ok..sorry bang, sorry.." and nervously butting out the cigarette in the bin. He just smiled and went back to the office or the control centre ( i think) and 45 minutes after that, that famous bilingual announcement was in the air again: ( which is not really exactly sounds like below)
" Selamat Pagi tuan-tuan dan puan-puan yang dihormati sekalian. Tren ke Pelabuhan Klang akan tiba sebentar lagi. Para penumpang diminta menjaga keselamatan barangan anda dan berhati-hati dengan penyeluk saku. kami juga minta bekerjasama dari anda untuk tidak merokok di kawasan stesen dan juga di dalam tren. Terima Kasih"
(Good Morning ladies and gentlemen. Train to Pelabuhan Klang will be arriving shortly. Please take care of your belongings and becareful of pickpockets. We also ask for your cooperation for not smoking in the station area and also inside the train.Thank you.)
I am sure the last part of the announcement was meant for me because i rarely (never!) heard the no-smoking announce before this at the station. padan muka aku!!
"..They are soo quick and soo fast to caught me smoking but yet still soo slow in the service!!!" i yelled,but in my head only la..
Anyway , that's not the real issue. I just want to have the excuse for myself smoking in public and point the blame to KTM. If the train can arrive early, i wont smoke at the station. Just like Malaysian politician will do and just like the old malay folk songs " Bangau Oh Bangau" where everyone blame others for own failures.
The real issue here is , how i couldn't see that big 'NO SMOKING' Signboard on the wall as a real warning for not-to-smoke in that station? or maybe i was soo adapted to Malaysian's culture of 'tak kisah' (dont care) even we can see a big signboard said 'No Smoking' or 'No Litter'??
That Bloody Malaysian!!!
