It’s not nice to keep you waiting, so I’ll continue the story. Please acceot my apology for the blur picture!

Serangoon Circle Line MRT station

Photobucket
The crowd gathering, a radio DJ from Mediacorp’s Yes 93.3 FM was on stage. I forget the name but it was a ‘she’.

Photobucket
The train had come from Bartley

Photobucket
Onboard the train. The train has only 3 coaches, something like the Jakarta monorail (if it ever completed, but hey, I’m not pessimist about the project!). The length was 70 metre in total.

Photobucket
This is where I stood. I like to stand at the opposite of the opening door whenever I take MRT. Crowded, wasn’t it?

Photobucket
Here’s how it looks outside when the train moves

Photobucket
I forget which station it is but I guess it was Lorong Chuan. Look below and this is what you’ll see. In the afternoon, I went to Expo by MRT and notice the same signs in Northeast Line MRT but not on the other 2 lines.

Photobucket
Bishan Circle Line MRT station, an interchange station between the North-South line and Circle Line

Photobucket
Bishan’s plate name in Circle Line version

Photobucket
A gracious action campaign by LTA using Phua Chu Kang and his wife, Rossie. You’ll notice this in Northeast line as well.

Photobucket
The ceiling of Bishan’s Circle Line station

Photobucket
Another promotion but it was Phua Chu Kang instead (see the picture above the above picture)

Photobucket
Remind me of the terminal-transfer train in KLIA (well, building-transfer instead) and Changi Airport

Photobucket
Marymount’s plate name

Photobucket
Should be Mediacorp’s 987 DJ Glenn Ong on stage with Bartley Secondary students in the foreground

Photobucket
I’ve never seen this thing on other lines

Photobucket
DJ Glenn Ong on stage

Photobucket
Marymount station

Photobucket
These are what you’ll get upon check-in

Photobucket
One of the art decoration in the stations

Photobucket
Deja-vu

Photobucket
When all the 29 stations open, it will be the largest underground metro system in the world (100% underground) but hey, there’s still a wiper

Photobucket
Photobucket
Lorong Chuan

Photobucket
Heading to Bartley?

Photobucket
Photobucket
Bartley

Photobucket
‘Do not board’ sign on the screen

Photobucket
Another art decoration

Photobucket
This is how Bartley station looks like, I wish the MacPherson station also open that day

Photobucket
Back in Serangoon, a performance by Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s percussion band would be coming on stage soon

Photobucket
The escalators

Photobucket
A train coming

Photobucket
The percussion band came on stage, followed by a Malay dance performance but I wasn’t staying for long

Photobucket
This is the passage that is going to connect the Circle Line side and Northeast line side of Serangoon station

Photobucket
Travellator for those heading to NEL

Photobucket
The passage was blocked

Photobucket
Travellator for those heading to Circle Line

Photobucket
Direction sign and time to go

At the exit, your paper wristband will be cut by volunteers followed by giving away goodie bags. Inside the goodie bags were NEWater and a book on the Circle Line opening stations. I’m hoping that more stations will open soon.

The Sunday Times ran a report, saying that 10,000 residents attended the open house, mostly senior citizens from Old Folks Home (this is based on what I saw yesterday). Nanyang Junior College students were also there volunteering but was it for CIP?

Third part (Circle Line facts) is coming soon.
