It was Sun­day, Sophea, Ted, Joanne and I went for photo shoot­ing at KL Tower. It was my first visit after so many years. It costs RM38 per per­son with­out time limit.

Too bad the sky turns dark by the time we got up there. Thus all the pic­tures look dull and low contrast.

KL Tower was built in 1983 — the year I was born com­pleted in 1996. It is the 6th tallest free­stand­ing tower in the world (2009).

I searched Wikipedia and found out that tallest tow­ers are cat­e­gorised sep­a­rately from tallest build­ings. Maybe it’s because tow­ers do not accom­mo­date spaces from top to bot­tom like how build­ings do.

But in over­all, KL Tower is the 17th tallest free­stand­ing struc­ture in the world (2009).

Oh by the way, do you know that Petronas Twin Tow­ers were built by Japan­ese and Korean con­trac­tors? Each built 1 tower. So how do you know which one is built by Japan­ese and which one by Korean?

It’s sim­ple, look for Kinoku­niya. The one on top of Kinoku­niya is built by the Japanese.

We waited until 8 PM just to see the 5-minute light­ing show.

KL Tower's 5 minutes light show at 8PM.

The light­ing show can be seen every Fri­day, Sat­ur­day and Sun­day once every hour from 8 PM to 12 mid­night. Noth­ing spe­cial I would say. They should project some ani­ma­tion instead.

Gotta agree with you that the light show is nothin fab­u­lous about it. Pro­jec­tion of sponge­bob or mickey on the tower would be awesome 😉
