View From a Train

The southbound journey started with the ETS train
from Kuala Lumpur to Gemas :
/\ Inside ETS from KL to Gemas.

/\ Quite impressive.
Sceneries captured from the southbound ETS window :
/\ A village house surrounded by greens.

/\ The beautiful landscapes.\/

/\ Rembau, a district in Negeri Sembilan.

/\ A village in Rembau.
/\ Oil palm estate.

/\ Earthwork for a development project.\/

/\ Reached a station in the state of Malacca.

/\ A village in Malacca.
/\ Beautiful landscapes. \/

/\ Reached the newly renovated Gemas Station.
Its the last point for the ETS southbound train.

/\ The spanking new ETS train and platform.

/\ The KTMB train.
/\ The refurbished interior of the southbound KTMB train.
Destination is JB Sentral in Johor Bahru, Johor.
Sceneries captured from the southbound KTMB train:
/\ Reached the Segamat town, a district in the state of
Johor Darul Takzim, popularly known as JDT,
home of The Southern Tigers football club. \/
/\ Blue building, yellow car.
/\ The three colors Bougainvillea tree.
/\ Colorful row of houses, shady trees.
 /\ Striking blue roof.
/\ Lushes of greens
/\ Passed through the small town of Paloh,
another district in Johor.
/\ Rows of striking pink potted flowers
/\ Empty and deserted buildings.
Looks like a group of abandoned housing quarters. \/
/\ Africa? No!
/\ Passed by a small train station.
/\ Old buildings in a small town
along the way. \/ 

There were no more picture taken after this photo
because the KTMB train was halted three times
 and we were stranded in the middle of no where.
No announcements were made,
no alternatives were offered,
 no solutions were given.
 We were made to wait with no info given at all.
When asked, staffs could not give a specific answer.
 The train which was supposed to reach JB Sentral at 6.40 pm
finally reached its final destination around 2.00 am the next day.
There was a 7 hours delay.
No apologies were given.
If not because of the beautiful sceneries
Malaysia had given me along the way,
this would have been the most horrible experience
I ever gained with public transportation here.
KTMB should have equipped their staffs
with better and effective crisis management system.

Eating Session
/\ Beef Steak, with Black Pepper Sauce

/\ I always asked for tomato sauce to eat with almost anything.
Just a  habit of mine.

/\ Nice décor by the table.
The place is at Swensen`s Sunway Putra Mall, KL.
The beef steak was nice, cheap
and the portion was perfect for me,
someone who loves her food to be in a medium size or small portion,
so that I can eat many times.


Eating Session
/\ Nice lighting and ceiling work done.

/\ Seafood pasta.

/\ Fried Chicken Strip

/\ Vegetarian Mushroom Pasta
The place is at Vivo in AEON Bukit Indah, Iskandar Puteri, JDT.
Ambience is nice and relaxing. Food was good. Portion is just nice.
Service given when I was there was quite impressive.

Flowers Collection

The Flower Project II
/\ New roses emerging, striking red velvet!

/\ Adding more to Mak`s flower collection.

/\ The purple is blooming quite well,
whilst the kekwa is producing some new leaves,
hopefully new flowers will emerge soon.

/\ These velvety shocking pink flowers are blooming fantastically,
there are many more buds underneath.

/\ These light pink plastic looking flowers are just surviving.
Looks like it must be put away from direct sunlight.
I found out its called the Painter`s Pallette.
