Along with my baby sister, we roamed the busy lanes and heritage buildings of the heart of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur.

It’s my birthday month and this time, I chose to celebrate it in this Muslim country. Even though it’s Christmas season, I can barely felt it. Guess I’m just used to the fact that Yuletide is always equal to Christmas trees and glittering decors. Nevertheless, I am full of anticipation on what’s store for us in the coming days. Our first stop, the well-known skyscraper, the Petronas Twin Towers.

Mounted at the City Center in Kuala Lumpur, the 88-storey building stood high for more than a decade and continues to be one of Malaysia’s tourism gems.

The outstanding facade reflects its interiors, grand and lavish. Seamless in every possible way. It is evident that it was tailored by the skilled hands of great architects and engineers.

We took some photos and left, but we did came back after our Genting Highlands tour that morning. We wouldn’t pass the chance to see the Petronas Twin Towers up close at night. And soon, we found ourselves gawking and mouth agape in the glittering twin towers standing mightily before us.

I’m not usually smitten with buildings, but for some reason, I was stunned by the brilliance of the construction. It is really impressive. It is a wonder how humans can create an astounding piece of architecture. Our eyes, wide in bewilderment.

We really wished that we have set our feet to the skybridge of the building as well, however, because of time constraint we skipped the thought. On a positive note, we were so glad to have our photo-op with this magnificent engineering. ❤

Another tick in my bucket list! 🙂
