Do not panic. It's not Singapore. Well, not this time anyway.
Hong Kong SAR is a place where the population is similar to Singapore and while MTR (or we like to call it MRT over here in Singapore) do break down from time to time, we find that the folks in Hong Kong more forgiving than Singapore.
For starters, it does not break down as frequently. They take each incident more seriously and are more transparent to the public.
When things go wrong, the management have enough balls to step up and face to public to apologise instead of cooking up some lame-assed canned responses and tried to pass them off as a form of apology.
It is really insulting. Really.
And they don't use cable ties to secure the claws. *roll eyes*
So. Is the pasture greener on the other side? Well, not really as the frequent breakdown of the subway trains that we have kind of evens out with Hong Kong's Ngong Ping 360 cable car system headache.
Perhaps, we should do an exchange program where we take a look at their cable car system while they help us with the MRT?
p.s. I wonder if anyone realises that all these breakdowns started occurring from last year only. We have had the MRT system in place for over 20 years. So why now? What happened? What was changed along the way that trigger this massive spate of breakdowns?
