to climb 94 steps? or to take the escalator...

This was spotted in one of the underground train stations in Singapore, the Chinatown Station at the North East Line.



Are you game for it? Walk up or take the escalator?

I used to walk 5 storeys up every morning before my office shifted buildings. What do I do while walking up? I count in French, all the way up! Really! OK, that was the past. hehe....

Interesting! I cannot believe they actually counted the number of steps.

Did you counted this one? :P

Great photo! Now, if I could, I'd prefer to take the steps. What a great exercise!



I would certainly appreciate your posting a condolence message in my blogs today for the wife of a good blogger friend...

chillycraps,
now my building has 8 storeys, and has more lifts! so taking the lift is faster than walking now. haha

after having some drinks at a bar in clarke quay... i rushed to the mrt to go back to the hotel. i was going down thru the flight of stairs which i thought would never end...
then the next morning, i was sober enough to notice the exit sign from the Clarke Quay station and it also said as much number of steps going up! skipped and used the escalator instead... phew!
