இ Trains ~ PUSH:PUSH:PUSH..

Arab student sends an email...


Dear Dad,


Berlin is wonderful, people are nice and I really like it here. But Dad,


I am a bit ashamed to arrive at my college in my White Gold Mercedes, when all my Teachers travel by train.


Your Son
Nasser




Sometime later, Nasser gets a reply from his Dad:


Loving son,


Twenty Million Dollars transferred to your account. Please stop embarrassing us, go and get yourself a train too.


Your Dad

How we wished to have such a mis-understanding dad! Have read a few postings and comments on our local train services by fellow bloggers and Bananaz can understand and know how you all feel when the service is not up to standard and the LRT or commuter trains are packed like sardines. Perhaps relax a bit, you might wanna check this out on the condition in Japan. Manglish could be in a better position to add-in more input with his real life experience there. I have a lady friend who studied and worked in Tokyo couple of years back, faced this 'push' everyday and what she had to do is to carry her bag pack at the front and join in the squeeze. If you cannot win them join them. Have a go and feel how is it like being "PUSHED" everyday..




Phewwwww!!!Oh my goodness..this is a second video added to convince [SK] its happening in Japan listen carefully to the Nihonjin speaking and the station announcement too haha so desu nei..

First comment from smallkucing ~ "Apart of the Sardine situation, there is always the Mr Octopus situation also...haiz..."

Netster said...

my goodness! when I was in Toyko, although the people up and down like ants but I haven't seen such a situation. Even the train master helping pushing the passenger in.

So not like Japan! LOL

however, In Japan you will get molest quiet very often while boarding the train. The girl molest the guy and the guy molest the girl.

Those girl who got molest will normally not reporting the incident. So molesting is very much a normal thing over there.

as I learned :D now you know hehehehhe

manglish said...

tat's why u see many ppl cycle in jpn too hahahaha myself included and my assistant professor rides a train and a bicycle to work everyday.

Merryn said...

reading ur post brought back nightmares. When I was in Tokyo with my then bf (now hubs) we got separated in the train from the rushing incoming crowds. when the train stopped ppl rushed out. I was blur dunno to get down or not.. n could not see my hubs.. i cried.. dunno wat to do when I decided to get down oso.. after wandering around, i managed to find him. NIGHTMARE!!!!

HappySurfer said...

Let me add to Mr Octopus. What about Mr Show-off.. Oops!

Love the joke about the train. LOL!

Shirleen said...

I hate taking the train when it's after office hours.. People just can't wait for the next train and they'll just squeeze in and you smell sweaty people around.. ewww..

[SK] said...

what an interesting introduction to your post huh?? hmmm, but why not something more Malaysian?? like the story of KTM and LRT??

[SK] said...

cannot find any good examples?? hmmm, i have been complaining many times in my blog already, here are the most recent two~~ :D

[SK] said...

but are you sure that video you posted is in Japan?? i thot that is somewhere in China.. i'd think it's quite unbelievable for Japanese to do that due to their politeness and discipline~~

[SK] said...

i travel to work everyday using LRT, if i'm gonna be "pushed" and "squeeze" like that, i think my life would be shorted by 10 years.. hahahaha!!

Kelvin said...

I want a dad like the above XD

Gratitude said...

I'm sure many would salivate at the thought of being sandwiched daily lolz
+Ant+

suituapui said...

LOL!!! It's so nice to be rich! Sobs!!!

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE said...

Coincidentally received that joke email in office from a new colleague as well :) - Universal problem of LRT / MRT?? -

Keats The Sunshine Girl said...

Squeeze any harder, be in danger of being a pancake or a collapsed cardboard, whichever one you prefer!!! Suffocating and unbearable.

cleffairy said...

I wanna be an Arab's dotter! LOL...

Pete said...

I don't mind using the white gold merc!

Bananazஇ said...

reanaclaire இ yeah this video has been in circulation for many years already. Paid post? Wud luv too but my engrish 'pun toong sui' [half bucket] one no doubt Bananaz myself not confident can or not leh? tQ

Netster இ huh the girls molest the guys? Possible Japs can be quite weird at times haha.

manglish இ ride bicycle how cool you molest the wind or the wind molest you then? hehe

Bananazஇ said...

Merryn இ oh dear sure scared the hell out of both of you to be in foreign land no speaking their lingo, no handphone and dunno where to search for each other. Imagine what if you had not get off the train..?

HappySurfer இ haha yeah lots of flashers too.

Shirleen இ after office hours sure to be crowded but not as bad as Japan right? haha

Bananazஇ said...

[SK]இ sorry bro no real life experience with LRT or KTM most of the time travel off peak time so cant really post any. Sure its in Japan, yeah I know some emails quoted it's China but I doubt it as a big country they have plenty of space. Even parking in Taipei cost you a bomb likewise for Toyko. Thought you wanna slim down how nice to have free squeeze and slimming sessions without going gym haha.

Kelvin இ oh me too would be happy if he had transfer only 10% will do haha..

Gratitude இ sandwiched until out of breath..haha

Bananazஇ said...

suituapui இ joining you sobs sobs sobs

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE இ that's the beauty of internet as news fly fast..haha

Keats இ think I would dread boarding trains and going to work in this condition but life is like that when given a lemon have to make lemonade no other choice..

Bananazஇ said...

cleffairy இ how nice eh with one email you get U$20m haha.

Pete இ if you don't mind the white gold benz what you gonna do your U$20m? lol

m.q said...

interesting email
huhhuuh

Tekkaus said...

But at least Japanese public transport is more effective and more punctual than ours. :p

bluedreamer27 said...

ahaha.. the conversation via email between the dad and his son is so cute and funny

bluedreamer27 said...

i agree with Bill gates..
you should do something to raise yourself from poverty..

bluedreamer27 said...

i think one of the reason why a lot of people choose to ride Train (based on my experience here in my country) is to get rid of a heavy traffic...
so even the passengers are like sardines inside, it doesn't matter as long as they can arrive on their destination on time..

Traffic here in our country is really a big issue

Lily Riani said...

even bangkok hv btr train system ok!

Bananazஇ said...

m.q இ thankz for dropping by

Tekkaus இ yeah they are very punctual. According to my friend they need to squeeze in the train so as to be on time to get connected to the next station out of Tokyo.

blue இ how nice to have a dad like that huh. So start planning your retirement fund now as not to die poor haha. Think most countries would have the same situation during peak hours.

Lily Riani இ oh really? what about peak hours think would have packed sardines as well?
