trains and stations

i've had a few awful things to say about my MRT experience, and not having to endure the stress of riding it every morning is one of the best reasons to live in makati despite the fat rent. in general though, i like riding trains. i remember reading somewhere that the quality of a nation's train service was an indication of its degree of civilization. or something to that general effect. with the sorry state that the PNR is in, what does that say about us? anyway, i wonder why those stupid guards at our MRT/LRT don't allow photography at the train stations. they're so stupid. ask them why it isn't allowed, and they'd probably just say, eh kasi bawal po. trains are tourist attractions and anyone can and should be allowed to take photos of them. and here are some of them:

at the recto terminal station of the LRT ube line

outside KL sentral

the KL monorail

the sentosa monorail

the singapore mass rapid transit

at the city hall station of the singapore MRT

inside a coach of hong kong's mass transit railway

outside the HK MTR disney line

at the shaw boulevard station of the MRT metrostar

inside the KL express
You know what, I've been dreaming of taking pictures of urban icons in Metro Manila. But, like as you pointed out, security guard prevent me from doing so. I don't know the exact reason, but I guess it's for the supposed security of the place. Duhh. Now, having said so, how were you able to take a shot of the ube line? :) I would like to take some pictures. hahaha I'd be using a compact Dig cam. Still saving for a DSLR. hahahaha
i did it covertly. at least i tried to do it secretly, but like, a guard whistled at me and said, "bawal yan!" estupido! siguro if you use a small digicam, they won't notice so much.
