Sexual Harrassment and Queue on LRT

Short note: My photography work appeared on Digital Camera Malaysia Magazine this month (July issue). Go grab a copy to find a shoulder exposed thumbnail photo of myself. :D


I was about to blog about my China trip today but something happened moments ago that prompt to write about the incident before anything else.

I was walking around KLCC looking for a decent pair of pump shoes to go with this really cute black dress I bought from China. And ended up getting two pairs of Nose high heels, seven Sloggi panties, two Triumph bras, a white and a black dress that were on 50% discount; which cost me a 'little' more than the initial budget of RM50 on a pair of cute black pumps. And I still haven't gotten my flat pumps!

I learned that living in KL costs a lot not because of the living standard, but because the surroundings. I am surrounded by temptation!! Everywhere I go, there's sale!! Whereas in Puchong, the only thing I see when walking out of my condo is a factory and a bowl of pork noodle soup, instead of Rocher chocolates and Starbucks every two blocks away.

When all was done, I decided to walked out of the Concorde KLCC to take the LRT back home (home here means my friend's place till I rent my own room here next year when I settle back in KL, yay baby! I love KL!) since my 'home' is just across the street of one particular LRT station not too far from KLCC. It's gonna be easy.

How wrong was I.

machine tickets queue - LRT
Queues for Ticketing Machines.


Gosh, I totally forgot about the peak hours. Have I spent that long shopping? I thought I was just browsing through Isetan, a book store, met up with a friend for tea, and then a shoe store trying every possible shoe they have there. Wait, that is rather long. Okay.

Thank god I have a lot of coins, else I'll be joining the counter queue which is menace.

queue for tickets - LRT
The queue curves in a way that 90% of the people u see in this picture are in the queue.


Personally, I think it's nothing as compared to Singapore, HK, Shanghai, and Tokyo. But I certainly did not expect such a crowd. I guess it's a good clear sign that everyone is shouting "Bloody hell! You think petrol cheap is it?!"


Oh, and by the way, you know how Malaysians, like the rest of Asians on this part of the world, do not have the courtesy of letting people out of the train when the LRT pulls in and doors open? I mean, it's common sense really, why do we people push our way into a cramped compartment when we can just easily wait for a 10 seconds so people can come out, hence allowing more space, before we move in, wouldn't that be easier?

Malaysians LRTs have figured a solution for this.

Red banner to scream "Queue up you bloody fool! Don't know how to queue up is it? Come, I draw a line for you, babies!!"

Well, it did work.

What would we do without our genius system. (Please sense the sarcasm)


Anyway, after I squeezed myself into the LRT thinking happily to myself that I was the last person to fit into the compartment whilst the rest waited for their next ride, a guy suddenly shoved right into this tiny void next to me (was there even a void?), pushing everyone further in, including myself.

Once inside, I waited for the door to close (since I was aware that I was THAT close to be 'kiap' by the doors) before settling into a more comfortable standing position. So was the guy behind me (my back was facing him).

He, too, shuffled to a more "comfortable" position, which in my opinion, was a bit too close for comfort. And for a while there, I felt his pants' buckle against my buttcheek. Or I wished it was his buckle!

I tried to take no notice as I was still figuring out whether it was a buckle or something more! Not wanting to accuse the wrong person, you know. So at the next stop, when a girl stepped out of the train, I wiggled my way through to the void she left and stood comfortably once again there.

Guess what?!

That guy moved too! Towards me and continue to stand next to me. Almost immediately I shifted my Roxy Tote Bag to act as a barrier between me and him, and his buckle. For few instances, I saw him glancing down at our barrier (aka my Tote bag) and at my face again and then looked else where. And he repeated the same sequence for the next two stops.

The MOST uncomfortable part, was that his face was just AN inch to mine, any closer his (disgusting) lips are going to plant a landmark on my right cheek. I have to lift my arm up to "pretend" I was holding the metal bar on top for support when in actual fact I was creating barrier (again) between his ungodly face and mine. And also to let him smell my armpits! HMPH! There! Smell, you filthy perv.

At this point, my body was slanting towards one side, squashing the poor petite Malay lady next to me while avoiding the shameless perv who's standing too close to me. Every second passed by, I swear he was breathing down my neck, smelling my hair and about to take a bite on my shoulder. If I have not known better, he could be stripping me naked with his eyes and having an orgasm on the spot. OMG~ *shivers*

"I had enough" shouted my head. "I am going to talk this buddy off really loudly in a cramped train and have everyone stare at him in disgust!!"

Just when I was about to shoot him a very angry stare, he suddenly turned, glided out of the crowd and onto the platform outside. o.O

WTF?! The perv is getting away!

Wait, he left. Hooray!

Damnit, just when I was about to expose his indencency. Darn~!


I also updated my pacmee shoutout in front of him when I was creating the arm barrier and armpit attack.

Nicolekiss: I swear I'm being harrassed here on the LRT. T.T

Totoro515 replied (and I quote): u can either scream now or do the same to him. haha

-_________-


Such supporting readers I have.


To totoro515,

I would have, but I don't have the equipment to make an erection and prode people's butt.

  2. What you should do is to get a 12" dildo (Does it even come in that size? Probably.) and do the same to him if you happen to have the misfortune of bumping into him again (or rather him bumping into you, pun intended). Metal ones work best. But knowing perverts, he'll probably enjoy it. *shrugs*

    Have a nice day Nicole!

  6. poor thing la you.. sometimes when us girls are harrassed.. shouldn't we just tell the person of.. since we already know he's doing it deliberately rather than waiting for confirmation that he is.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Perverts who are hunting boobs, crotch and ass are everywhere on public transport. You are just another poor thing...

    We should not only concern ourselves with these perverts... but also those rude, heartless people who are not willing to give up their seats to the disabled...those rude bastards is as annoying as those perverts.

    And... pickpockets...

    Nicole, next time u take train u ask me out also lah.. i will PROTECT u from all these perverts.

    I'm FAT and UGLY and DIRTY sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well, I think both the law enforcement and Putra LRT don't think this is a problem.

    We should insist on LRT (putra and maybe star also) to have a female only cabin, or better yet, female only train. Make it 1 in every 4 or 5 trains, base on the gender distribution of the commuter users.

    They can implement it only during peak hours on weekdays, something like 7.30-10.30am, and 4.30-7.30pm, and 100% of the time on weekends.

    So as long as you are taking the tains at these times, and willing to wait for it, you can expect a female only cabin/train.

  23. kanasai this kind of pervert guys....ccb!

  24. Haha how u wish u were in Japan with the all women carriage !!!

  25. This has got nothing to do with the LRT or any public transportations. It's all about the people. "Uncivilized" people do not know how to queue, speak loud in public areas, etc. Harassment not only come from men. Men could be victims also. (like me, sigh)...

    So, i think the best way to handle perv is to SCREAM OUT LOUD immediately, trust your feeling. If you have the pepper spray even BEST. haha

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh my, Nicole. I'm so sorry about that. I think he knew what you were going to do.

    If you see him again, make sure you do it back to him. :) Hopefully, that pervert will learn.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Be careful Nicole,
    these days, banyak orang jahat.
    i like yr post on Cambodia. they should tangkap the perverts and apply what the Cambodians did with the Metal thing to drag their captured male prisoners's penis.

    take care

    ReplyDelete
  28. these people are everywhere. its better to not wear too 'little' cloth when you are taking public transport or you are travelling alone. I think that might help a little.

    Sorry to hear that but glad that you are okay and he didn't do anything worse.

    take care :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Maybe that pervert in the LRT knew who you are and he is the one who always sexual harassed you in your blog here!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Show more bra lah!

    See! now get harassed...

  37. hullo nicolekiss. happened upon your blog after reading my fresh copy of digital camera mag.

    a tip to females who are commuting, which i've used several times in the past, is to bring a safety pin with you. once they get too close, i usually prick them and just act nonchalant with a charming smile. if they call you on it, call them out publicly on their groin pressing antics. i think these pervs should really be taught a harsher lesson than just quietly taking it the abuse. =) but that's just me. =) safe commuting!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Nicole - I understand - and there is no excuse for a male - or female - not controling them selves in public or private. But saying this some times the physical attraction is so strong - what do you do??? Well certainly keep your body parts to your self but to look over how can you stop your desires??

  39. sometimes i got auntie breathing down my neck instead. it's not buckle that pressed against my butt but some soft thingy pressed against my back.

  40. In Philippines, The guy and the girls are seperated. The 1st section of the train are for girls and the middle part are for couples, and the last are for guys, :)
    I dont ride LRT but that what i heard from my officemate :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. It happens to me a lot of times in the lrt. There's nothing I can do about it since I take the lrt to work everyday. Besides, whether a woman dressed in revealing outfit or not they still do it. They have x-ray vision.

    ReplyDelete
  42. nicole u should had taken a video of the guy and post it on YouTube la .. see if the guy still dare do it again next time o not :P

  46. Nicole is Lame.

    ReplyDelete
  47. These pervs are cowards at heart. They prey on their victims fear and silence & are emboldened by it. Only thing to do is scream your lungs out! If that doesn't do it, aim a kick at u know here! Still brings a chuckle whenever i recount how you erected barriers using your arm & shopping bags from his buckle. U do have a traveller's humour! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Nicole should have let the guy insert his penis into her vagina there and then in the LRT and have an orgasm of her own.

    ReplyDelete
  49. aiya,all this female are the same like xiaxue or dawn yang. not really outstanding, but depend on guys to feed them. go travelling always and spend 'b.f' money only. showing us that we no need to work and always go holiday only. always show clevage lagi. sigh...same same lah...

  50. I think all the air tickets & hotel accommodation must be sponsored by Airasia Marketing Department due to her face & write up showed in The Star. Same thing go to her new Dell laptop, it must be sponsored by Dell Marketing Department due to she can influence people here to take Airaisa rather than MAS, and buy or change to Dell laptop.

    It is something like what the Westin Langkawi did for her as a blogger and press.

  56. Hey you men who comment,...I bet you guys who try to be nice here as as much pervert as that in th LRT....But you guys do it in a different way, the so called "Nice Way".."Nice Soft Spoken"....but the bottom line is that you aspect that Nicole would go out with you right?You guys are as much wanting to get into Nicole's pants too...Men are always men...The ladies will only realise it when its too late...

    ReplyDelete
  57. Same goes to Nicole, perhaps its just your imagination...You know "lah"...when alot comment you are good in this, that etc...you think that you are so pretty and then try to be proud of yourself...Come on, think about it and look yourself in the mirror...you are just a person whom you think look cute...hope you realise that...Leter, after some men who seen this message, surely defend you one...you see lah...especially those whom never met you and wanting to meet you in person...(so called perasan guys lah)....This one, I believe that you have noticed it "lah"...
    Sorry Nicole for giving you such comments...because this is the fact of a human being whom did not realise who he/she was before he/she became so called "Famous"...

  60. The petrol price hike is really taking its toll on Malaysians huh? Well it is definitely a change in lifestyle / commuting and I am hoping that this would spark a transformation of the public transport in KL. With the demand, operators should react quickly to improve / expand the infrastructure before everyone goes back to their previous lifestyle.

    Hope for the best! and sorry to hear about your experience in the LRT... one of my friends experienced something worse!

  61. hi nic, u r obviously not a regular on public transportation... v d regulars have found a solution to that! we carry scissors in our bags... the type that tailors uses... pretty expensive, but good investment ;)
