British shorthair? Scottish fold? Persian?
Siamese cats might be too much of a risk factor for SMRT/LTA.

Nice shots.... especially the last one.

The uncle must've blinked that's why only the eye area is clear of vapour. :bsmilie:

i would take British short hair.
apparently i can injure Singapore cats and run away while on bail.

i went to Japan not very long ago. their transport system is excellent , there is no reason to drive in Tokyo. hence everyone taking train. about the crowd inside the train, i myself never encountered. probably i took the train after peak hours.: another reason for the crowd, Tokyo itself got 13,189,000 population.



ps: railway not shown on map.

At least from the pictures it looks cool/cold inside the train, there have been too many times when being in the MRT feels like being in an oven.

1) water on the outside. means it's raining. and cool. have you been cramped in a train on a rainy day? it's still COLD

2) there're 4 seasons in Japan. we only have one season here.

it's not so cold when it is crowded . but cool. anyway in hot trains we can see mist . even better.

there is only one season here. too hot or too wet . or both

I had first hand experience get pushed in Tokyo subway during rush hours, it really felt like compacted into tin can but I can't complaint nor resent it. Inside train literally shoulder to shoulder, but given cold and dry weather in Japan no obnoxious body odour. But in SG if this happened, I can imagine it it will be nightmare. In our tropical set, personal space is important.
Anyway I felt taking subway in Tokyo is bliss; people queue up, they move to the centre of the car, exits are everywhere and worse case if you missed one the other train will arrive in less than few minutes after each other.

It is inevitable the public transport system is going to be crowded during peak hours, especially our government is looking at 8 million people. Of course those not taking public transport, top 10%, are as affected.

Not only MRT and buses, even the road is packed during peak hours. Again the top 10% are not travelling during these peak hours. It is sad to see people walking like robots in a lifeless city.
