Saturday at Suria KLCC

Beautiful Saturday.

Last Saturday while we were waiting to hail a passing cab to go to Suria KLCC, William called.

“I’ll pick you up. Give me twenty minutes.”

At Suria KLCC, we parted ways as I went looking for a toilet. At the same time I had a lunch appointment with MystiqAngel at the Level 2 Food Court. William and Cynthia came and joined us at the Food Court a short while after we had settled down. After lunch, we loitered around the complex until it was dark and went out to the KLCC Park. I have never seen the Petronas Twin Towers from close-up. The view was incredible. Just outside the Suria KLCC, at the esplanade, there was a synchronized fountain called Lake Symphony. I have been to Suria KLCC many times but the sights I saw that evening will be one to be remembered for a long time.

  1. Do u use tripod for the photo with the description “View from the esplanade.”? The chandelier photo is nice 🙂

  2. Pete,

    Who took those photos? Simply amazing. I’ve never actually gone out to see the Twin Towers either. Must make a point to do that when I go to KLCC. 🙂

    Beautiful photos!

  3. good shots, man. i walk past them everyday, but never snap any shots. btw, u didn’t take any photos of the awesome playground?

  4. Acrix,
    Some of the shots were taken by either William or Wuan freehand or with the digicam resting on a fixed structure. None of the photos were taken with a tripod. I took a few too by setting the camera’s timer and held it still. That greatly reduced the camera shake. A tripod is rather bulky to be carrying around. A monopod should be good enough.

    Some were taken by Wuan and William. Some I took. Seeing the Petronas Twin Towers close-up is a different from seeing them in photographs. You must do it when you are in the city. The sights are simply awesome.

    Thank you. I totally agree with you. Seeing the towers rising so high up was simply amazing.

    Thanks. We did not make it that far to the playground. We were aleady tired from a day of window shopping but I sure would like to explore the KLCC Park more one day.

  5. Hi Peter:

    Nice pic.I have taken some nite shots of KLCC freehand as well but not with the building lights on bcoz it was about 5am

  6. best time to go is in the evening (not so hot) and the kids are playing in the pool… i’m sure you can get some awesome shots.

  7. mystic,
    One of the towers was not fully lit that evening. It would have been a prettier sight if it had been.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    My neck was sore after taking all those photos. Yet, there was this urge to look up and appreciate its height and magnificence.

  8. I’ve always loved the shots of KLCC at night. The day shots just don’t have that same oomph! 😉

  9. Hi there Peter!

    YOu shud have told me u will be at the Twin Towers. I work there man. Nice shots! I often take pictures from inside the towers. Infact, there is a photo that I took from inside the Twin Towers at the PETRONAS Gallery!

    Hope you had a good time.


  10. Wow nice pic Pete!! Even I went to KLCC so many times, I couldnt get pics as good as those u took. Good job!!! 🙂

  11. Selina,
    Nice to hear from you again. I can imagine what a view you see from up there every day. I am beginning to have a good time here. Thanks.

    Thanks. We took many photos. These are the few good ones.


    I will be in KL until end of the month.
