The Joy of Escalator Riding

There were many shouts of joy when they spotted the first one and it never diminished.

My children are 4 & 2 years old. Discovering places with us, they feel our sense of adventure and it doesn’t matter where we are as long as there is adventure for them as well. In Kuala Lumpur, the adventure was Escalator Riding.

The thrill of escalators.

The thrill of escalators.

The initial anxiety of just when to jump on, the relief of landing safely. The slow ride up cultivates anticipation of jumping off. They’re happy, nervous and giddy.

Should we run up or down it?

Should we stand still?

Should we drag our hand on the glass?

Jump too soon and you won’t make it. Jump too late and you’ll hit the forks.

Let’s do it again.

Loving the free thrills of escalator riding.

Plenty of free fun at Times Square Mall
