I am a country pumpkin at heart.
Rumour had it that the first escalator installed in Sibu was bought second hand. It was bought from Singapore where there was a fire and lives were lost.
When the Sibu one was built, we were so pleased to try it. I was in my last year of high school.I wore open toe jandals/slippers. At the top of the escalator, it bit my toes. I always have a phobia.
In Singapore , there are a lot of escalators. In my 16 years, I rode a lot of them. My heart always miss a beat when I first step on it.
