Climacophobia

Climacophobia is the fear of stairs.
Who has it? Me.
I realized that I have this kind of phobia since I worked as an industrial trainee in one of the animation companies in PJ, which produced a famous 2D cartoon, Keluangman.
(FYI, aku tak bangga pun keje kat company ni, kan Siti kan? tak de elaun!!!)

Living in KL/Selangor and without a car, meaning my main transportation is LRT.

Can you imagine the flight of stairs to get to the underground Masjid Jamek PUTRA LRT station?
Steep, right?
I don't like that.
I don't have problem to climb the stairs.
But I do have problem to get down the stairs.

Seeing this, will make me nervous.

The line that they draw at the end of each steps will make me feel dizzy.

The last time I checked, I still have the same problem.
It was in London.
I'm not sure which station.
But I'm sure the stairs are damn long and steep compared to PUTRA.
I was struggling to get to the bottom of the stairs (at that time, the escalators are set to move upward).
Mrgrammarindahouse, Mrkamahkamah and Rozie were waiting at the bottom of the stairs,
so I didn't really have a choice.
What I did was, I hold on to the stair rail
(I know, yuck!!! Ntah2 org mana pegang rail tu lepas pegang sampah ke pegang *** ke,  yuck!!!) and move my feet one by one while counting my steps.
At the last few steps, I miscounted and I nearly fell down.
So, I had to stop for a while, then started counting again till I safely arrived at the bottom.


Now, the university promotes this.


Oh please don't judge me if I don't use the stairs.
I'm just afraid of the stairs.
(Hemm.. mcmana nak beli umah double storey? Sapa nak sapu sampah atas tangga? Erkkkk!!!)
