In preparation for the walkathon, I took my last Malaysian breakfast, nasi lemak and teh tarikh at MidValley near the train station which goes directly to the KLCC.
I toured around the mall first, visiting the Petrosains Museum, a science museum which at the time featured an exhibit on the Sultans of Science. I find the museum quite expensive. But the exhibit was worth it. I learned a lot about Arab mathematicians and scientists! They were the ones who invented hellish topics such as algebra, chemistry, optics and engineering applications.
Suria KLCC has the most glamorous brands under one roof! Outside is the KLCC Park showcasing Lake Symphony. There area actually 1900 indigenous trees and 66 species of palms in the park. Talk about mixing man-made with natural.
Finally, I emerged from the mall vicinity. I asked the guards where I can view the tower and they pointed outside. When I went outside, all I saw was another park. Then I saw people taking pictures of whatever it is behind me. I turned around and a candid, “Ohh” escaped my lips.
To say it was beautiful is an understatement! It was breathtaking and hypnotizing, I must have taken a gazillion photos of it. I could almost feel like the view of the Petronas Towers has capped off perfectly my entire stay in Malaysia. Even from afar, when I got home, the Twin Towers shimmers against the night sky.
Next up: my trip to the Kingdom of Wonders, Cambodia!
