Dinning in the Sky...

It was one of those days that we would go out for a family dinner. This time was at a place that I had not been before. Although the KL Tower was officially open some twelve years ago I have not been up there until last Saturday when our eldest daughter invited us for a family dinner there. She had been trying to organized a dinner up there for sometimes already and it was only last Saturday that it happened.

The KL Tower is one imposing telecommunication tower and with the Petronas Twin Towers it made an imposing icon of the capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. The total height of the tower is 421m whereas the Revolving Restaurant is at 282m.

On arrival there at just past eight in the evening we were whizzed up by the lift nonstop to the twenty second floor. The revolving floor where one would enjoy the dinner and watch the panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur move around you. Actually it is the floor of the dining area that moves at a slow pace, hardly noticed. So while we sat to enjoy our meal and concentrate on the food, the scene of Kuala Lumpur below us slowly changed. The center of the hall move too so as we enjoy the evening the Dessert Table that was beside our table slowly disappeared and reappeared after a lapsed of sometimes.

Soon the dining area was filled with dinners of the local and tourists. We took our times to enjoy the sumptuous buffet of local and western food. And from time to time I took snaps of those amazing scenes below us. It was just majestic, glittering like a fairyland; such a magnificent sight indeed.

For grandma and grandpa this is our first time here and together with the kids and grand kids we all did had a gala time that evening, enjoying the food and watching the view of Kuala Lumpur from such height. Indeed an enjoyable family dinner, one of a kind. A bliss.

Have a nice day.

Well you have to try and maybe on a really clear day you would get to see it. It could be possible in this crazy world of ours.
