Picture of the Day: Creative Commute

How would you like to catch some z's in the MTR like this?
Before, MTR employees had to deal with tense standoffs with mainland children urinating in train carriages. But now they're finding more stranger things happening.

On Monday night along the Island Line, a man strung a hammock across two posts and slept in it.

A passenger called an MTR employee at North Point at 11.30pm and the man left shortly after the staff member intervened.

MTR Staff General Association chairman Wong Yuen-wood said it was common to see drunk people lying on train floors or passengers in strange costumes, "but setting up a hammock -- I have never seen this," he said.

It's so bizarre, but at the same time, it's kind of funny no one thought of it until now. Or has he been doing this for a while?

Nevertheless, it's an interesting statement about how we don't get enough sleep, and also how a bit of creativity adds a bit of fun to one's commute...

What will we find next in the MTR?! Stay tuned!


  1. It's a pretty obvious stunt to get some attention. Note the guy with the hat at right.
