Tower Power

One thing that comes to mind when "Kuala Lumpur" is uttered is the Petronas. Oops! Make that two (things)... The Twin Towers of Petronas tower over Kuala Lumpur like two powerful structures on earth. Well, in fact, they are, not only because they were once the tallest buildings on earth before Taipei's Taipei 101 was constructed, but also because they are home to Malaysia's well-known corporations and financial institutions.

Dwarfed by Petronas, 'Entrapped' by the Towers

It was an overwhelming experience to be dwarfed by Kuala Lumpur's Petronas Twin Towers. Architecture is really amazing! Ever watched The Entrapment starring Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones? Yes, these are the same structures where they shot the movie.

Yes, for a moment there, we felt like Catherine Zeta-Jones, eventhough we didn't experience running for our lives, breaking windows, hanging and falling from the bridge that connects the two towers. We just felt that we had one thing in common: we saw the beauty of this wonderful architecture.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:There's something about it that spells power. It's Petronas.
  • Cons:It gets too crowded.
  • In a nutshell:For me, KL can be equated to Petronas.
