KAJANG: Spanking new facilities aside, it was the town’s famous delicacy – satay – that drew a huge crowd to the Stadium Kajang Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station.

Members of the public arrived as early as 8am yesterday to admire the latest transport system in town, while being treated to mouth-watering satay.

A total of 70,000 sticks of the smoky delight were prepared by famous satay maker Sate Kajang Hj Samuri to mark the opening of Phase 2 of the Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) MRT line.

Retiree Roshidah Jantan, 52, was among those joining the festivity.

“When my friends and I heard about the jamuan raya, we travelled all the way by LRT and KTM from Bandar Puteri, Puchong,” she said.

Semenyih resident Ang Lee Kung, 63, was impressed with the station.

“With the MRT extended to Kajang, I will definitely use it more often to go to Kuala Lumpur,” he said.

Soo Ah Chai, 75, remarked: “This is the biggest event I have seen in Kajang.”

Besides a photo booth for the public to pose for photographs, there was also a kiosk by Pos Malaysia offering limited edition first-day covers featuring MRT trains.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his entourage rode the new train from the Tun Razak Exchange sta­­tion to the Kajang station to launch the second phase of the SBK MRT line.

The SBK line connects the north-west and south-east parts of the Klang Valley.
