Ever given a thought to spiral cases? Sibu has a few spiral cases especially in the Raminway-Pulau Road- Jalan Tuanku Osman Triangle.. When growing up we used to be amused by tales of how kids brought upstairs their bicycles or how housewives found it difficult to bring home their huge baskets of vegetables...and how kids could run out from their homes faster than than their mothers could catch them with the feather dusters.....
The famous Trajan's Column in Rome has a spiral staircase. It was constructed in AD113.
But in later years I read about the Loretto Staircase and the story gets stuck in my mind..some things just don't disappear so easily in the recesses of our brains!! And a sight in Padungan just trigger off a lot of thoughts.
The Sisters of St. Loretto . This spiral stair case has a legend.
