Beryl – Chocolate Factory … divine taste-all-you-can experience. A bite of heaven. Tiramisu Almond White Chocolate, Coconut Delight Bar Chocolate, Camior Milk Pralines … the feast is endless. Now readily available in the Philippines.

The view from my hotel room … The Petronas … this is Mandarin Oriental, a 5-star international deluxe hotel. As part of the prestigious Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) development, the hotel has direct access to and from the world�s tallest buildings – the Petronas Twin Towers, Suria KLCC shopping centre and the Petronas Dewan Filharmonik. Best view there is … at 620 Ringgit.

 

Skybridge Visit – Open: Tue-Sunday. The Skybridge Ticket Counter opens at 8.30am on every operational days. Visiting hours: 9.00am to 5.00pm. There are 1300 tickets to be issued on first come first serve basis. The ticket is free of charge. Normally the tickets would be finished around 11.00am. The tickets will be issued on the visit day itself. To avoid any disappointment, I would suggest you to come to the ticket counter as early as 8.30am. The Skybridge Ticket counter located at the Concourse Floor (underground) of the PETRONAS Twin Towers. The floor can be accessed from both Towers.

 

The Petronas Towers are some of the highest buildings in the world. They are 452 meters tall. Following the most recent details: the Bamboo Shoot in Taiwan is at this moment the highest building in the world. It is like two crystal skyscrapers at night.

The Kuala Lumpur Tower (officially known as Menara Kuala Lumpur; referred later as KL Tower) is a tall tower located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is used for communication purposes and features an antenna that reaches 421 m (1,381 ft), which currently makes it the eighteenth tallest freestanding tower in the world. The roof of the pod is at 335 m (1,099 ft). The rest of the tower below has a stairwell and an elevator to reach the upper area, which also contains a revolving restaurant, providing diners a beautiful view of the city. This is also an observatory where they look for the crescent moon to start the Muslim month.
