Cashless MRT Stations

From Sept 1, 11 stations had been selected to go cashless. Admiralty MRT is one of them and I will need to made some adjustment. Currently I and my wife is already going cashless. But what about my children? They do not have atm or debit card.

Thus, it will inconvenience me as I have to do the top up for them. They cannot do it independently. I have not sure whether LTA have thought about it. I am definitely not going to ask them to top up at convenience stores as there are additional charges involved.

This is Singapore style, enforce the rules to ensure you comply to their policy. So remember to made adjustment to your travel needs.

The 11 stations going cashless are Admiralty, Bedok, Bukit Panjang, Buona Vista, Farrer Park, HarbourFront, Hougang, Lakeside, Pasir Ris, Serangoon and Yew Tee.

The Law of Gravity Define

Galileo in 15th century, discovered that any object falling to earth, fall at the same rate of time . He mentioned that a cannon ball and a feather, if dropped from the same height will touch the ground at the same time provided there is no air resistance. He had difficulty explaining it for quite a long time and also unable to prove it visually.

4 centuries later with the current technology it has been experimentally demonstrated. 

Its a super visual treat to watch the video 👌
Please show it to your children .👇

North East Line Down 8 July 17

The North East Line went down in the wee hours of Saturday.


Information is up but with a small mistake which I think you can spot easy.
(Picture credit of my FB friends)

The delay travel spell into a full break down of services.

It is a common since to see passengers battling to get up the buses due to the large human traffic. The train will also be pack like sardines when it started to resume operations.

It looks like the signal fault is creating an uphill task for the operator. There may be other issues which is not visible to us and unspoken by the staffs who are aware of it. We just have to live with it as LTA try its best to resolve the issue.
