I am basically a fast walker. I walk 5 to 10 times faster than any average Malaysian. Whenever I am on my two feet in the streets of KL it means speed walking. One thing I so dislike about the escalators in shopping malls and commuter train stations is they are way too slow. Much slower than those in our neighbouring country, Singapore.
I can only guess this could be the kind of technology that are used to operate the escalator system in Malaysia.
