It was meant to be a quick stop at the mall. I couldn't park at my usual area but managed to get a spot a bit further away. I knew what I wanted and was determined to grab it, pay for it, and head back to my car in minutes.
But that was not to be. I was arrested along the way by a feature in the mall that I had never noticed before. Not being the usual route, I had not realised that there was a lovely spiral staircase tucked away in a nook at the back.
A spiral staircase... I even wanted one in my home except that there wasn't enough space, and it would have increased the cost by a lot ... So of course I had to pause and take a look.
Beautiful. To commemorate the moment of discovery, I just had to take a photo. But not just any photo. I had to wait for the perfect moment. That meant I needed people to accentuate the scene. People who would use the staircase at the precise moment, placed where I wanted them.
So I waited.
The clock ticked away.
Then it was a mad dash to grab my intended purchase and make sure I didn't break the speed limit as I rushed back home.... It was certainly worth it!
