Malaysia Tour – Part 3: The Petronas Twin Towers

Isa sa pinakasikat na pasyalan at isa sa famous landmark ng Malaysia ay ang Petronas Twin Towers na matatagpuan sa capital city na Kuala Lumpur. Ito ang tallest buildings in the world mula noong taong 1998 to 2004 hanggang malampasan ng Taipei 101.

Ito ay dinisenyo ng isang Argentinian architect na si CĂ©sar Pelli na sinimulang itayo noong March 1, 1993 at una itong binuksan sa publiko ng Prime Minister ng Malaysia na si Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad noong August 1, 1999.

Sa entrance pa lang ng building na ito ay mapapahanga ka na sa ganda ng kanyang architectural design na pinaganda pa ng Malaysian flags sa magkabilang gilid nito.

Sa loob naman nito ay mayroong masarap kainan na madalas naming kainan noong kami ay nasa bansang Qatar pa at ito ang Nando’s. Masarap kumain sa resto na ito dahil sa kanilang mga original spices and recipes na talaga namang babalik-balikan mo lalo na ang kanilang specialty na Espetada.

Sa taas nitong 451.9 meters o 1,483 feet ay talagang manliliit ang mga taong nasa baba nito pero kay gandang pagmasdan ang twin towers na ito mula sa ibaba kaya naman marami ang sa lugar na ito ay nagpapakuha ng kanya-kanyang mga selfie pictures.

Napakagandang pagmasdan ang skyscaper na ito mula sa ibaba na halos parang ikaw ay napapagitnaan ng dalawang malahiganteng robot na pinakikinang at pinatitingkad ng liwanag buhat sa mga ilaw nito.

Kaya naman kay sarap magpakuha ng litrato habang ikaw ay nasa ibaba nito at ang anggulo ay kay gandang pagmasdan mula sa ibaba na pinatitingkad pa ng mga liwanag ng twin towers na ito.

Narito rin sa area ng Suria KLCC, Petronas Twin Towers ang Petrosains Discovery Center na isang Malaysian science and technology museum na itinatag noon pang March 25, 1995.

Sa di kalayuan naman ay matatanaw ang main building ng Public Bank na sa malayo pa lang ay mamamangha ka na sa aking ganda ng kanyang disenyo na lalo pang pinagaganda ng kanyang magarang kulay at pinaliliwanag ng maraming ilaw.

Sobrang ganda tingnan sa background ang Petronas Twin Towers na ito kaya naman ang karamihan ng nagpupunta dito ay hindi palalampasin ang pagkuha ng pictures sa iba’t ibang anggulo ng skyscraper na ito.

Kaya naman hindi mo dapat palampasin na magkaroon ng sarili mong selfie picture sa iconic structure na ito dito sa bansang Malaysia. Kaya naman ang Petronas Twin Towers ay isa sa mga talagang pinupuntahan ng mga tao mapa-turista man o lokal.

Kaya naman kung pupunta ka dito ay asahan mo na ang maraming tao mapa-umaga man o gabi dahil sa ganda ng lugar na ito lalo na ang Petronas Twin Towers. Mas maganda rin s’ya kung magpupunta ka dito sa gabi dahil nga sa makukulay na liwanag ng mga pailaw maging sa baba o sa kabuuan ng skyscaper na ito.

Ito ang ikatlong parte ng aming paglilibot dito sa bansang Malaysia at isa ito sa napakagandang puntahan na hindi dapat mawala sa iyong bucket list kung ikaw ay mapapasyal sa bansang ito.

Nawa’y naibigan ninyo ang mga pictures namin dito sa Petronas Twin Towers at sana’y nakapagbigay ito ng ilang kaalaman patungkol sa isa sa mga magandang pasyalan lalo na dito sa Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

A Tribute to Kobe Bryant (The Black Mamba)

Rest in peace to one of the greatest basketball players of all time. Last January 26, a viral news shocked the whole world. The death of NBA’s legend Kobe Bryant in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, United States. This comes to show how life is so fast and too short and anything can happen in a split of a second. Life is full of surprises and you’ll never know what will happen next.

On January 8, 2012, I posted in my facebook timeline how happy I am to have a brand new Kobe Shoes and Kobe Jersey for the first time. Now, after 8 long years, a feeling of sadness shocked me to what had happen to one of my favorite and greatest basketball player in the NBA history and the idol of many including me. The whole world was so shocked and sad to hear the news of his death and every one was mourning for his lost.

Born on August 23, 1978 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Kobe Bryant was considered one of the greatest basketball players of all time in the history of NBA. A legend of his kind and the third youngest player ever selected in the NBA Draft who went into the NBA straight out of high school. I knew back then when he was still young that this kid will have a big name in the NBA history.

He is a shooting guard who played his entire 20-season career in the National Basketball Association (NBA) with the Los Angeles Lakers from 1996 to 2016 after his retirement due to injuries and citing his physical decline. He won a total of 5 NBA Championships and was an 18-time All-Star, 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, 12-time member of the All-Defensive Team, a winner of the 1997 Slam Dunk Contest and the 2008 NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP).

Now that he’s gone and for his death, I created a tribute music video to remember that there was a time a man named Kobe Bryant shared his talent to this world through basketball to give inspiration to others and for everyone to adopt what he called “The Mamba Mentality”.
