Don't worry, people will adjust themselves slowly to accept expensive things for its convenience. Malaysia people still love expensive items what...

About the China's bullet-train accident... I want to add: in any modern railway system, all components of a system must work well...not only the trains. Anyone who wants to bid for their bullet-train in Malaysia must now comes with a good system to manage them as well.

Since Japanese has proven beyond any doubt that their 1960s bullet-train system works up to this day without any single train accident due to signalling fault (which is also a part of its system) even for a country that is natural disaster-prone, I will choose Japanese technology over Chinese technology.

Your point is valid because, usually people will compare between train fare and airplane fare. So, Malaysia government must take this into account in making the decision.

Yes....  I think if the train build by Japanese, I wonder how much will it be.

China build one, at least is affordable.

Actually now many Japanese brand also made in China so some parts might be imported from China with Japanese brand and install it at our train here but in term of the cost it will cost more if the project is taking by the Japanese.

Every manufactured items in China has its grade; Japanese companies, like American companies, who work with Chinese will dictate the grade based on their specs.

Planes still rely on fossil fuel to run. Fossil fuel price keeps changing from time to time and it gets worst when it is speculated and it is not sustainable.

Bullet trains rely on electricity but our country still generate it using fossil fuel .

However the cost overrun to manage a fleet of 100 or more planes against 1-to-5 bullet trains should be calculated properly over a number of years in operation.

Malaysia needs to move fast to a cheaper source of generating electricity.

Economic-of-scale wise, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan may have or having a problem with ticket prices to think of if compared to Japan and China since they have a bigger population and country size.
