is that a pair of skyscrapers, or are you just glad to see me?

seriously, "twin towers" evokes unfortunate events that took place at another set of skyscrapers... beautiful photo, though...

The photo here is of the Petronas Twin Towers as it is officially named, and is currently the second tallest skyscraper in the world (the tallest being Taipei 101).

My sincere apologies to any readers if the term "twin towers" brings back bad memories, as it is not my intention to do so.

Hey. I live in Malaysia. I've been at the Petronas Twin Towers bridge a few times. It's nice. Kinda refreshing 2 be up there and watch everybody else down below busy with their life. Nice pic.

Levin said...

beautiful pic and wonderful towers.

Levin said...

Frankly I'm not sure if it's the largest, but for sure it's the 2nd tallest in the world. :)

And thanks to everyone for the compliments. Those of you who intend to visit Malaysia for the first time should make an evening appointment with the Petronas Twin Towers. It's worth it. Besides, there's a great shopping mall at the ground level, so you won't be bored.
