As we all have known, 8th of July 2011 was the day our MRT aka My Rapid Transit was launched. Finally our nation has our very own MRT huh! The announcement of the Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) line paved the way for work to begin and it means people will be getting better public transportation soon. I am sure everyone residing near the area will be benefiting. So less traffic jam and more affordable way to commute from one place to another right? Talking about So when we, Malaccans, have our own MRT? LOL :D
Speaking about our MRT which will be completed in 2017 (6 years from now), a symbol is needed to represent our new era of public transport. Hence a logo is needed to betoken our MRT. So here's the deal folks: Now you can be part of our Malaysian history. All you need to do is to design a logo for MRT and you will be immortalized! How damn cool is that? Your artwork will be seen by millions and will last for decades-immortality. Ha :D On top of that if your logo is the chosen one, you will be RM10,000 richer too.
Yours truly me, has already submitted my logo with the hope of being that lucky person. I only know how to use Microsoft Word and Paint to draw my simple MRT logo. Haha :D So damn lousy right? Who knows? I might get lucky and win myself RM10,000. More importantly I want my logo to appear on our very first MRT. So you guys should join as well. Maybe your logo will be the chosen one?
