    why not spend the money on solving overcrowding issues instead of telling people to love their ride ? how to love the rides when it is often so crowded ?

    That's the CEO's way of saying thank you for patronising the train services. LOL!

    Next time they may install speakers at bus stops too, doing the same thing. It will be so fun

    Initially I thought the last line was "love your life".

    First thing that came to mind was that "Oh. An anti-suicide campaign, making people feel happy so they change their minds about jumping before the train arrives..interesting."

    Bah, blame the lousy PA system at some stations. Took me a few days to verify what's the last line...so unclear.

    The MRT train song is not so bad.

    Very long ago, there were pre-election visits by politicians to households.

    So the long train retinue of hangers-on that hovers around powerful persons will have some running down the corridors shouting "The MP is coming!...the MP is coming!...."
    to warn the householders to get themselves all prim and proper to welcome the important person at the door.


    It REALLY happened.

    Now you know what can be worse.

    The MP was a nice guy. But you know lah, many people want to bask in his glory....

    Can't they just keep quiet for a while?! There are already so many messages, now this "train is coming" song...makes a stress out person more irritable.

    Oh, what is the last line actually? The first 3 sentences (TRAIN IS COMINGGGG..!!!) were so loud and in contrast the last line was so unclear that I can never figure out what it's saying!

    "Train is coming ..., Train is coming ..., Train is comingggggggg ..., So start 'Q'ing ..., Love your Ride ..."

    If I remember correctly . . . . .

    They play this on MRT stations, but use so lousy audio quality . . . . .

    Btw, you start a poll without knowing what they are singing, . . . . .

    They are encouraging commuters to give way to alighting passengers so that all passengers can love their ride . . . . .
