It’s hard to believe that with two train services plying Ipoh – Kuala Lumpur – Ipoh, I couldn’t even purchase one miserable ticket when I went to the Ipoh Railway Station last evening.

Guess what? The ETS ticket counter was already closed for the day while KTM ticket counter refused to sell me an “advance” ticket. Errrr I have no idea since when this policy was enforced but it pissed me off that after driving 30 minutes to the Ipoh Railway Station, I went home empty-handed. Two train services and no ticket for sale. Imagine that!
