My wife planned to take the ETS to KL Sentral, and then to KLIA on a trip to visit our daughter in Dubai. Even though her sister in KL who will be on the trip offered to pick her from KL Sentral to go together to KLIA, she bought the ticket. When I told her about the delay in Tapah, she said that sometimes one has to be optimistic. Anyway, since my son is coming to visit us, he has offered to drive her to KLIA! This was before the latest blow to KTM train service as a result of a bomb hoax! I am wondering who would want to sabotage KTMB or was it just a prank by one or more students during school holiday. It must have been costly to KTMB, having to refund to passengers besides providing alternate transport, but more so in terms of the bad publicity on the lack of reliability as a result of the delays.
