Last month, my friends on facebook told me about the Blog4FT contest, a contest in which you blog about the Federal Territories of Malaysia.
When I was about 6 years old, I had been to many places in Kuala Lumpur.
Now I am 11 years old. So, I took advantage of this great opportunity to explore and rediscover Kuala Lumpur, the exciting capital of Malaysia, because I believed there would be deeper things for me to learn, and then, to share. I guessed this is the purpose of the contest too.
So, I persuaded my mom to bring me on a tour to the exciting and amazing places in Kuala Lumpur (KL) as it was my school holiday too.
After a 2-week journey, I would like to share with you the most remarkable places I’ve visited and the impression and feeling they left in my heart, in this blog post.
1. The two iconic buildings of Malaysia
Petronas Twin Towers and KLCC Park
The Petronas Twin Towers are more beautiful than I can describe. With 88 floors, it is 452 meters high and it was built on the world’s deepest foundations: 375 feet! It cost about RM 4.1 billion! It will surely last forever for generations to be inspired by.
Truly, it is the most majestic building in Malaysia to me. Just look at how high it is! Although it is not the highest building in the whole world, it’s structure is simply marvelous.
As a patriotic Malaysian, I would like to say that our Petronas Twin Towers is still virtually higher than Burj Dubai, the highest building in the world. So let’s do some maths.
Burj Dubai = 828 metres.
Petronas Twin Tower 1 = 452 metres
Petronas Twin Tower 2 = 452 metres
So two is better than one! 😉
But even though if I don’t use my imagination and use photoshop to stack the twin towers up, it is still the tallest in the world as twin buildings. Oh yeah!
When night comes, the towers light up ever so beautifully, like twinkling stars in the night city sky. It’s really a beautiful sight for everybody to enjoy!
The skybridge is a really thrilling attraction. It was really an exhilarating experience to be up there. It was so breathtaking. The view of Kuala Lumpur was really near-at-hand.
The Skybridge is known as the gateway to the future.

Jumping for joy before the tour guide called us to leave.
In the Petronas Twin Towers are many other attractions too, such as Petrosains, The Discovery Centre – a really fun science discovery centre for kids, and also adults.
There is also the Petronas Art Gallery, a world-class art gallery. I really enjoyed the artwork of local and international artists and sculptors because the designs were so fine & intricate!
These two attractions are located within Suria KLCC, a mega shopping mall (that has everything under the sun) at the base of the towers.
I really enjoyed being at the Petronas Twin Towers because there were so many fun and attractive attractions where I can enjoy and have fun with!
