hotel motel tanjong pagar
Most people would be familiar with this part of the station, or the food stalls at the back (which incidentally, sells the most awesome goreng pisang…mmm goreng pisang…). But ever notice the 2nd and 3rd floors?
Thought #1: Whoa… this is kinda cool!
Thought #2: Er… it’s also a bit creepy.
It basically feels as if one day they decided not to use the hotel anymore, just like that. Although I am very sure that this is not the case.
Apparently someone did take their own life in one of the rooms though….
On to nicer things! This where the trains come in and leave, and where you can sit and enjoy a nice cup of teh.
VIP rooms are larger and sport this kind of semicircle window and doorway.
One of the KTM Station Masters.
All in all, the experience was really interesting, a bit like seeing Miss Havisham, still in her wedding dress, now old and tattered, clocks stopped at a particular moment in time. But I think that’s the beauty of KTM, no? It just feels like stepping into a time warp, where everyone just takes their time.

Hope you enjoyed the virtual tour! Sorry for the blurry photos, these were taken with my iPhone 3GS because silly me did not bring a camera. Have a kickass week all!
