Singapore Lifts: When the lift is down….


Nowadays, HDB flats are built with lifts situated on every floor. Singaporeans are now so used to taking the lift to get to and out from their homes. Staircases are now seldomly used.

The lift in my HDB flat malfunctioned today. Hence I have to use the stairs up and down to and fro from my home. Along the way, though it is tiring (been ages since I used the stairs), I discovered the following benefits of using stairs over lifts:

a) environment friendly (lifts consume electricity)
b) exercise and physical workout
c) meet neighbours who you never know exist on the block
d) get some tips of home design (as you pass your neighbours’ doors)
