Five years ago this month, I traveled over 30 hours to attend a conference in Kuala Lumpur. Usually I love visiting Southeast Asia, but my time in KL was plagued by food poisoning and jetlag. My one respite (and only touristic visit) was the Petronas Twin Towers–the tallest twin towers in the world. This famous landmark was at the center of my trip, as it was the backdrop for a night event at SkyBar, as well as the site of a client visit.
October’s POTM™ is an interior shot on the skybridge between the two towers. And now, my memories of the suffering during this trip have faded. Now I remember the gorgeous art deco interior and this fixture within the unique skyline of Malaysia’s capital city. Selamat tinggal (or “goodbye” in Malaysian)!
One of the coolest things I’ve ever done was go on a month-long business trip around the world. For four weeks, I circumnavigated the globe on an American Airlines around-the-world fare, starting in Europe, going through the Middle East, and concluding in Australia. Spending time in both Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates were both so different than anywhere I’d ever been, and I truly treasure my days of global traveling.
The POTM™ was taken in Dubai in front of the Burj Khalifa, which is still the tallest building in the world. I took the opportunity to actually go up in it, which I will happily check off my list but not replicate, due to the insane amount of visitors that had the same idea. In fact, I think I’ll happily stay on the ground–or shop at adjacent Mall of Dubai–and snaps some photos!
