PETRONAS Twin Towers

Dear Diary,

Whenever we drive by KLCC, I always see people from all walks of life taking pictures of the twin towers. Each time too without fail, I make a promise in my heart that one day I’ll memorialize them for my keepsake. Finally… pictures of our world famous landmark – PETRONAS Twin Towers.

Some information taken from the PETRONAS Twin Towers official website:

PETRONAS Twin Towers, the tallest twin structures in the world.

Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, rising to 1,483 ft (451.9 m), the 88-storey PETRONAS Twin Towers is the crown of the capital city. Inspired by the geometric shape in Islamic art, PETRONAS Twin Towers is a gleaming mega-structure with a striking glass-and-steel combination and floor plans based on an eight-pointed star.

The twin towers are joined at level 41 and 42, 175 m above street level by a 192 ft long double-decker Skybridge; linking the two sky lobbies and facilitating the movement between the two towers.

This sentence by Tun Mahathir Mohamad will forever etch in my mind, “We have not one but two towers.”
