A stairway, staircase, stairwell, flight of stairs, or simply stairs is a construction designed to bridge a large vertical distance by dividing it into smaller vertical distances, called steps. Stairs may be straight, round, or may consist of two or more straight pieces connected at angles.
Special types of stairs include escalators and ladders. Some alternatives to stairs are elevators (lifts in British English), stairlifts and inclined moving walkways as well as stationary inclined sidewalks (pavements in British English).
A stair, or a stairstep is one step in a flight of stairs. In buildings, stairs is a term applied to a complete flight of steps between two floors. A stair flight is a run of stairs or steps between landings. A staircase or stairway is one or more flights of stairs leading from one floor to another, and includes landings, newel posts, handrails, balustrades and additional parts. A stairwell is a compartment extending vertically through a building in which stairs are placed. A stair hall is the stairs, landings, hallways, or other portions of the public hall through which it is necessary to pass when going from the entrance floor to the other floors of a building. Box stairs are stairs built between walls, usually with no support except the wall strings.
Stairs may be in a straight run, leading from one floor to another without a turn or change in direction. Stairs may change direction, commonly by two straight flights connected at a 90 degree angle landing. Stairs may also return onto themselves with 180 degree angle landings at each end of straight flights forming a vertical stairway commonly used in multistory and highrise buildings. Many variations of geometrical stairs may be formed of circular, elliptical and irregular constructions.
Stairs may be a required component of egress from structures and buildings. Stairs are also provided for convenience to access floors, roofs, levels and walking surfaces not accessible by other means. Stairs may also be a fanciful physical construct such as the stairs that go nowhere located at the Winchester Mystery House. Stairs are also a subject used in art to represent real or imaginary places built around impossible objects using geometric distortion, as in the work of artist M.C. Escher.

There is a rumors saying that the staircase level 4 at this apartment was haunted by a lady spirit, how true is it…? I’m not sure. To those people who believed the existing of the spirit, yes it is but to those people who doesn’t believed it, no it’s just a rumors.
I had heard some story from the nearby neighbour saying that there is a sound of lady sobbing and running during night time around the staircase. Even the current duty in charge security did mentioned that he also had heard from the previous security colleague claiming that, one day during his night duty patrolling he saw a lady was sitting at the staircase, at first he was calling the lady few time but no response from the lady then he was thinking that the lady might having some problem and try to walk nearer to her to see what was happening but when he walk nearer to the lady, he get shocked because that lady was eating a raw bloody chicken and he tried to run away but he couldn’t because he feel that his two legs was grabbed by something. He tried to shout for help but it seem like no voice coming out from his mouth. Suddenly the lady spirit disappeared in a split of second without any reason. At that point of time the security known that what he see is not a person. After the incident that security had tendered his resignation.
Beside this, the two units nearby the staircase at this apartment was remain empty till today and been told that every new tenants moving in will not stay too long. It is strongly believed that all the past tenants had been disturbed by the spirit. Why and what actually had happen to the lady spirit which haunting around the staircase till today still remain a question mark?
What do you think? Do you believe in spirit?
