It was a pleasant surprise riding the MRT on my way home from work this morning. The men are now separated from the women (with the disabled grouped with the women). I could imagine the inconvenience when this was implemented. Imagine having to separate from your husband or boyfriend to get on a separate car...unless you'd like to be the only rose among the thorns.
I was with my officemate, DJ, and we took our seats and chatted away the morning. It smelled fresher (unlike before when it smelled a mixture of sweat against reworn jeans and cigarettes) and of course, a LOT comfortable and 'airy'. We looked at the next car and saw it cramped and packed with men--- really sardines-like! Wawa naman..
'Tis great to be female! No more cramped spaces or smell of sweat. No need to position yourself in a manner where you had to make sure the taller male-form beside you don't get to peak through your neckline. And no more wondering whether you sworn you just felt something like a folded umbrella or briefcase rub you from behind!!!!
