I’ve always been a stairs sort of a girl. Whenever possible, I would run up flights of stairs instead of relying on lifts. Staff at hotels always looked at me funny I asked them where the stairs were, especially when I was heavily pregnant. I have such an affinity for stairs because 2 reasons:
1. I don’t work out, I’ve never set foot in a gym, so taking the stairs is my only/favourite ‘incidental’ exercise.
2. I was trapped in a lift when I was 16. I was under the influence of red cordial and snake lollies one day and was dancing so hard in a lift that my forceful moves stopped it half-way on its descent, leaving me stranded in a 8 people lift (translate: hello claustrophobia). I remember that I wanted scream at the top of my lungs so my parents could hear me and rescue me, but at the same time I feared that they would scold me for being so foolish. After numerous prayers and wishing that I could turn back time, suddenly something prompted me to push open the lift doors. I couldn’t believe it! The metal doors actually parted! Thank God, the lift stopped just inches above ground level and not stranded between floors, so I just slid out and pressed the up button, like nothing had ever happened…
However, even my childhood ‘phobia’ could not deter me from getting well-acquainted with the art deco style lifts at the Park Hyatt Melbourne. Although this time, I made sure that I only danced outside the lift…
I hope that this post has lifted your spirits today. If not, I’ve teamed up with Bevilles to give you a stunning 9 carat gold, Jade & Diamond ring on my Facebook page for Valentine’s Day, hope that helps :)

2 。16岁的时候我被困在电梯里。那天我特别兴奋，在电梯下行的时候不停得跳舞，而且跳得特别有力，甚至使电梯在半路上停住了。因此我被困在一个8人的电梯里 。我还记得，我很想尖叫，叫我的父母来帮我，救我，但同时，我担心他们会责备我。正在无救的情况下，我只能祷告，求神救我。当我快要放弃的时候，突然有个意念到我脑海中促使我推开电梯门。我简直不敢相信！金属门居然打开了！感谢神，刚好电梯没有停在半空中，离地面还不高，我很容易就滑了出来。
然而，就连我童年的“恐惧症”也无法阻止我在Park Hyatt Melbourne宾馆的华丽电梯里拍照。当然这一次，我学会只在电梯的外面跳舞…[/spoiler]
