Moscow Metro


"In total, the Moscow Metro has 292.9 km of route length, 12 lines and 176 stations; on a normal weekday it carries over 7 million passengers. Passenger traffic is considerably lower on weekends bringing the average daily passenger traffic during the year to 6.8 million passengers per day"


Yes, metro is a big part of my life here in moscow. I reckon I spend around 3 hours a day inside the metro during weekdays. Yes, it's a lot of time. The hospitals located pretty far from my house it does take me at least one hour to reach there. It's actually not a suprising fact since the metro is the most reliable transportation in moscow. The train arrive every 45 secs during peak hours and every 60-90 sec during normal time. Since the traffic jam in moscow is the worst I ever see in the world, the metro is the only thing u can rely on. Furthermore - the metro stations in moscow are the work of art. Each station is different from one another. None is the same. Considering in moscow, the white winter is about 4-5 months long - being inside the metro station is such a lovely view compare the world outside. Maybe that's one of the reason why the russian built the metro beautifully so it could bring the smile to the russian citizen. Unfortunately, it doesnt work that way. To be frank, it's pretty hard to see a smile from a russian ( unless those who are used to foreigner ) The communism spirit is still inside them. However, needless to remind here - 20 years ago, Russia still a USSR and to see the development they have now.. it's amazing! The personality of the younger generation also changed as they are more open to the outside world...... bla bla bla.. it's getting boring , I know.. will write about Russia again some other time :P
This is the metro station I've been using everyday for the past one week. This is the interchanged metro.The station called Stressnoi Boulevard. Boring Boring Boring.. Enough already with the metro story. Back to my life again. I phoned my parent earlier. They were at my brother's new house in Seremban. My mom told me that my cousin who's also gonna be a doc soon is getting engaged soon. I bursted into a real big laugh. The thing is, we had a bet ( my cousin and I ). Whoever get married first - lose and have to buy 3 "hantaran" for the winner. Looks like I'll be having 3 free "hantaran" in the future! Sorry Tina and at the same time - congratulation. I tried to call her earlier but to no avail. HHehee.. my voice is the last thing she wants to hear rite now. However, I'm happy for you. I know u all gonna ask when is mine rite? Well - since I'm not working yet and obviously I'm not a millionaire son , I believe I have to take my time then. It's a known fact that getting married today could cost as much as a helicopter, at least I need to have some money first to take care of "anak dara orang". Some ppl said that money isnt everything, but u still need money to buy food rite... to rent a house at least.. buy this... buy that... and eventually we all have to agree that money is "one of the key to happiness" in this new world. Yes, some of u might say, u can rely on ur parent , here and then before u get a real job - but then - it's not them who's getting married rite. How unfair is it. My parent already spend a lot on raising me up , I think it's "uncalled for" to burden my parent anymore. NONETHELESS, this is just my personal view and I do stand by it Some ppl might have different opinion on this matter :) Occay then - I hope everyone is satisfied with my answer :P
