Perhaps kopiandproperty.com should just invite a group of readers to have breakfast in Sungai Buloh and then board the train at 10am, visit a couple of places (take lots of photos and post online), have lunch (at some nice place within walking distance from a MRT station) and then a final coffee break (inside some cafes along the line) before arriving back in Sungai Buloh for a post-mortem and dinner?! Haha.
This article will be the reminder for me to plan something like that. 15 months is really not that far back. I await excitedly for it. As for the question of whether I would be taking it more often when it’s completed, the answer remains a no. I still prefer to drive. Haha. However, 2 times per week is possible. We shall see. What about some readers? Are you already thinking of moving to some places along the line? Happy anticipating.
