A Chinese lantern glows at the entrance of the hotel in Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur, home to a giant multiplex mall and highrise apartment buildings
The statuesque Petronas Twin Towers at night. They were the tallest buildings in the world 1,480ft tall - 88 floors -from April 1996 to October 2003, until they build in Taipei an even taller building.
Here I am in front of the twin towers and the Malaysian flag. In the groundfloors of the towers is a giant luxury shopping mall, which I inspected. No deals to be had though, unfortunately.
Twin Towers by day. The cross section form of the building is patterend after traditional islamic motif, that forms an eight pointed star. Eight is a lucky number for the Chinese and stands also for prosperity. The towers are of course owned by the most important corporation in Malaysia Petronas, which is the national petroleum company here.
