~ first MRT ride ~

aina in the MRT

it’s aina’s first time in the MRT. and she surprisingly behaved.

we went to Kuan’s place in Potong Pasir to pick up a CD, and since it’s weekend, we thought we should take aina along. we took a cab to Potong Pasir, but on the way back, we took the MRT to see if aina doesn’t mind riding a train.

it went pretty well. she was sleeping halfway through the Northeast line. she then woke up and kept staring at the girl who sat next to me. the girl laughed at aina, and after about 10 minutes of staring she got uncomfortable and moved aside. she offered her seat to ari and aina ends up staring at ari the whole way until we changed train.

aina was awake and looking around the whole way on the East West train. on one stop before our stop, aina started to cry. everyone on the train looked at her and smiled. i felt bad, so we got off the train and took a taxi instead… it was so close to home that the cab only cost us $2.90.

i think she did a good job. so far, it was her longest journey from home. that, or the ICA trip.

by the way, even though i didn’t plan to sit down, i was offered seat on both train. the first one was by a husband of a pregnant lady. the second one was by a young man whose girlfriend offered her seat to another lady with a child. maybe i was wrong about the lack of gentlemanship in singapore…
