A peep from up

Last year I took a quick tour to Malaysia.
One of the beautiful sights I had was the Petronas Twin Towers.

I showed a picture of the towers here in my blog. But this is a peep from the Petronas tower to the ground far below.

The sight was very beautiful !
Though an year old…while scrolling through my picture disk, I came across this one.

It is nothing compared to looking with your naked eyes. But...

I share it with those who have not visited.

Coming down from the tower, I wanted to walk around the streets alone and I told the company driver to scram for thirty minutes while I walk around.

He hesitated!
Though he had instructions to not to leave me alone in the streets, I convinced him that I am not going far and he relented.

I walked for five minutes and realised that I am hungry and stepped in the nearest restaurant.

To the chinese face in the counter, I asked in English to be served with some Chinese food.

The fella didn’t understand a word. I repeated slowly again.
No change in the facial expression.
So I motioned with my hand for the food. I saw a change in his facial muscles.

He smiled broadly and said something in Malay language... caught my hand and led me to the far corner of the restaurant and showed me this

Hi Jac
This is wonderful sight...and I am afraid of the heights too!
Even though I check the Other radio button it doesnt show me the name and link box. So I put up my name at the bottom.

Nice thank you and thank you in return.

Come often, mystic.

Jac said...

Yes, a long way down, but the funny thing is that the pic is not even from the top, as none are allowed to go up more than that much.

They are the tallest building in the world now.

You know what ?
I just wanted to fly with a peanut stuck in my mouth just for the fun of it.

Thank you Anjali for the visit and the compliments.

I think I know the problem you have in logging in. The blogger is crazy now a days. You need a google account to sign in.

Why don't you get an account with out having an active blog ? Just open a blog, which is a 5 mts job and just leave it inactive and you can go in any blogger with that address.
In any case I want you here, moods.

Let me know if you need any help. It would be my pleasure.
