16 hours, 146 stations

SINGAPORE - On Dec 28 last year, Miss Jacqueline Wong and her boyfriend, Mr Jonathan See, took a day off work to take the train.

It was no ordinary ride, but one that lasted all of 16 hours that day.

Starting at 6am from Joo Koon station, the couple made stops at all 146 MRT and LRT stations across Singapore.

At each stop, they got off the train and took a selfie.

That "extremely tiring" day was documented by Miss Wong, 25, in her blog. The post, titled Many Selfies, went on her blog on March 4 and has been making its rounds on social media sites.

"My friends said I must be mad. My sister was incredulous," the fun-loving blogger said, adding that she was inspired to do this after reading an online article of a couple who took 118 selfies at all the subway stations in Manhattan.

"I procrastinated a lot. It was only when I told my boyfriend about the challenge and he urged me to do it that it happened at all."

Miss Wong said she put off the idea for a few months after she read the article.

The couple spent only about an hour planning their route.

They managed to avoid the Central Business District's lunch crowds and also got free rides along the Downtown Line from Chinatown station to Downtown station.

In all, they spent less than $10 each on train fare.
