The Petronas Towers is Post Card-Perfect. Here’s How:

After my six-week internship in Malaysia, I made sure I saved the best for last. With Merdeka Square down, I am left with an entire day to visit the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center!

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.

So that’s it! That closes one of the most memorable times of my life, which is travelling alone, working for an NGO for the blind and couchsurfing in Malaysia. Will forever remember these.

Next up: my trip to the Kingdom of Wonders, Cambodia!

    We love this are of Kuala Lumpur. The Petrosains museum is amazing specially for kids. Mine loved how that T-Rex roared when you came close by. They also loved going up to the bridge between the towers. Did you notice the amazing playground and wading pool in the park under the towers? Gah, we love it there.
