    My then sexist mind tell me to bet on male, but I got smacked quite often. Of course we got into argument when they wore hat and sunglasses.

    There are... but very little... not more than 10 out of nearly 300...

    No sure yet... for now, drivers will still be inside the train even when train is moving remotely... but for how long more before the drivers will also be remove... that's for the future CEO to decide....

    Yeah, JP is quite diff. Can droll while waiting for train.

    What an irony. When we have someone to droll at, the train is always on time. When we got nothing to droll at or worse Saw Wah Piang, train got delayed.
