    is this something new miss betchay? my friends always tell me to stay on the right side when using the escalator coz the left side is for those who are in a hurry, sort of like a passing lane when you’re driving on a freeway right? and this is something i would always remember coz one time an ajoshi said something to me coz i was in the way. confusing!
