The Malaysia railway – Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) station at Tanjong Pagar went down in history at the end of June 2011. My deepest memory of this place – I took a train from this station in 1999 to Kuala Lumpur by myself – to visit my then boyfriend now hubby! My mum sent me off at the train station. Apparently that was my mum’s only trip to the KTM station too!
It was a little crazy thinking back … it was an overnight ride. I merely clutch on to my bag and tried to stay awake as the train made numerous stops before reaching my destination. Now a mummy myself – I wondered if I will ever let my children take a midnight train to a foreign place all by themselves at the age of 19…. Am I just paranoid? :S
Anyway, like many others, we went to the station to take some photos and bid farewell!
