Miss Samantha Koh, a sales representative, had the keys to the fashion store at Paragon on Orchard Road and couldn't afford to be late. She was supposed to open the store at 10am.
She was snared by the disruption yesterday morning.
What upset her further was that it was her second time in three days to be caught in the train disruptions.
When she headed out expecting a “bridging bus service”, an MRT staff she approached told her to just “take any bus from the bus stop”.
Another commuter was an hour late for a friend's wedding rehearsal, in which she was the coordinator of the wedding and was integral to the rehearsal.
