Bus waiting for the light. Taking a bus to your destination is cheap but hopelessly unreliable but on this day I was lucky. A taxi on the other hand is another beast. A moment earlier a taxi driver wanted RM7 for a ride that would actually cost around RM4. The fare was RM1 and I was totally happy with the timing of this bus arrival. The same bus would be packed like sardines during peak hours (1700-1900). Thanks for looking. Have a great day.
PS: Most buses or any other public transport vehicles in Malaysia are air-conditioned ... could immediately turn into a sauna when the air-conditioning breaks down. Average daytime temperatures outside is around 27°C (82°F) year round. Buses are freezing cold. So are our offices, and cinemas. We love cold interiors.

loved this one a lot latiff... the reflections on the two mirrors are the killer factors here, and the numbers and all the colours outside add extra charm to the compo... well seen and composed... my compliments... korkut

Hi Latiff, I like this interesting image with its different levels and perspectives. Good colour and the two mirrors, showing different views of the same scene, add great detail. You've taken an everyday situation and made it seem very attractive. Good work!

A nice daily life documentation, with a fine accompanying note. The photo is clear, sharp and has an provides an interesting focus. Your note is informative and a pleasure to read. It`s interesting that even the local people never get used to the heat and humidity. I wonder how the tourists fare ... TFS.

it seems now you carry your camera anywhere, to the rojak stall, in the bus an ceven follow the aedes fogger :).
Lovely shot focussing on the mirrors, giving a suspense and a challenging bit.
Well thought and good info.

You've chosen a good point to focus on, the two mirrors are crisp and the rest of the frame is artistically blurred. Excellently captured.
thanks for sharing
