Snail Mail Indeed
The other day I received my slowest postcard to date, it was sent on April 20 and arrived on June 3. That’s a whopping 44 days in transit folks! The Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, a pair of 88-story towers completed in 1996. They were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 through 2004. For your enjoyment I have compiled a small list of notable events that have taken place at this location over the years.

1999 – The film Entrapment was filmed at the skybridge.

2002 – Several scenes from the video game Hitman 2: Silent Assassin take place at the virtual towers.

2009 – Alain Robert, a French climber, scaled to the top of Tower Two in just under 2 hours.
