do's & don'ts of escalator travel in KL

From top left corner:
DON'T Wear a floor length dress, DO Wear a mini-skirt
DON'T Sit there doing your business, DO Use it as a urinal
DON'T Dance alone next to it, DO Hold a young lady's hand

Ok folks. You must excuse my banal humour. I've been bedridden and ill. Today, I had to get up because I'm not excused from rehearsal. What's wrong with my body this time? Acute Tonsilitis. Can't eat, drink, sleep without crying...blah blah blah. But I'm feeling much better today. Started eating soft lumpy food about a day ago. This happens to me annually. Thank heavens it's healing. I've to get on a plane on Friday.

Edwin, this is delightfully weird. I don't know much about Malaysian politics but do you have some of the top-down social control of Singapore? I don't think it would be a good idea to tell men they can pee on the escalator in the US. Imagine what would happen after a baseball game.

Tonsillitis is nasty stuff. Hope you feel better soon.

Edwin, like Strangetastes above, I love this sort of social snapshot. It really enriches our knowledge of a place and its people. Thanks for posting this and I hope that you are feeling a bit better soon.

That's the first time I've laughed out loud today. And it happened twice. First, I loved the picture. Then, as I was making my own jokes, I saw that you beat me to the punch. Super.

I love these signs too, and I can never stop myself from doing exactly what you've done - making up ridiculous meanings that were the furthest thing from the poor signmaker's mind as he sat designing his sign. :P
