my 1st train journey to Segamat =)

1030.. a glance at my watch showed that the train was delayed for more than a quarter of hour. Waiting for my hubby to send me off, I was worried about the journey back to KB fr segamat. Fr KB, I booked a bed (or what-eva-it-is-called). It was a good trip. Having the bed all for myself, and don’t need to ‘beramah-mesra’ with any other passengers (not because I’m anti-social, but I had a busy day, and rest-to-the fullest during the journey had became my motto :p). The ‘bed-seating’ was sold out. So, I bought the most-‘expensive’ seat (which is a second class :( … I was nagging for a 1st class ticket.. but apparently there’s NO 1st class ticket for KB-S’pore train). (price KB-Segamat: RM47 lower bed, RM41 upper bed, RM37 2nd class seat, I’m not sure bout the 3rd class one.. I think its pretty cheap).

Saying goodbye to my beloved husband (without hugs n kisses- no PDA ;p), I board the train to endure my 10 hours journey (min) ON A SEAT for the whole night, with the lights turned on the whole night (unlike buses, they didn’t switch off the light). The seat besides me was empty (Alhamdulillah..).. I was arranging my stuff, and started reading the novel I bought when I realized someone was observing me. I ignored him for a moment before asking whether his seat is beside me (which I pray not). I can always tell if someone is hitting on me, and it’s really annoying. Saying something like there’s prob with his seat (which seems really unlikely), and asking if I mind if he seats beside me (of course laa I mind, bodo laa mamat nih ß dlm hati), I said ‘cannot’ with a cold face.. trying to ignore the fact that someone was STANDING beside my seat in a MOVING train, I pretended to be reading. But it’s getting really uncomfortable when he keeps trying to start a conversation. My final resort was texting my husband ‘call me ASAP’.. apologizing, I answered my hubby’s call, facing the opposite way. All praise to Him, that guy went away when the train conductor came to check for ticket. I was feeling nervous the whole journey, in case he came again.

Moral of the story, book early, and book for a bed instead of seat. It can be a really enjoyable journey. When u are bored, you can always walk around, from coach to coach. And there’s even a cafeteria =) there are private room in the train to KL, but none for this one. Next time I want to try that private room (would cost me around 200 maybe).. but if and only if i got ample time (50 min on flight versus 12hours on train.. hoho)..

I need to say this, to all the guys out there, jadilah manusia berguna.. there are too many guys yg tak jadi ‘orang’ dah. Value your life. Stop doing stupid things (like hitting on people that is obviously trying to ignore you).
