Well the thing is if you wanna set foot in that bridge up above, the “hand” that links the two lovers (as they call it in that movie, which I didn’t see btw haha!) you have to line up around 6 AM somewhere at the tower’s basement. And at nearly 7 PM with still no shower (TMI, TMI, haha!), this is the queue that greeted us:
We were still lucky to have been admitted coz I believe there's a limit of 800 per day. The Skybridge visit has certain slots into it with 15 mins interval each and can only accommodate a number of people for a certain batch. You will also notice that some of ‘em still have their trolleys or backpacks with them since some came straight from the airport. From the mix of tourists in the queue you will find quite a handful of delish men that had got us wondering about their origins (wild guesses typically Israelis or European, yay!). They made the waiting in line uhmm just a bit of an all right, I can say. (Bit of an all right mo mukha mo, hahaha!!!) Okay fine, I admit there's one dreamy guy and I
BWAHAHA!! I kid, I kid.
When we finally got our tickets, we headed to a small fastfood in the corner that sells some dainties. Chattering away at different kinds of stories, I’m really surprised I can talk to Ate Lisa about anything. =)
By the time we finished breakfast, the summer sun had begun to shine. But I like the weather in here, it’s summer but it’s not a microwave oven that Manila is at this time. :P Ate Lisa decided I have a look at the attractions surrounding the majestic towers. Stretching out of it is a beautifully landscaped park that has a jogging track, walking paths, water fountain and a pool for children. Yep, I really saw the last two in the said park. I mean, where in the PH can you find a FREE KIDDIE POOL and FREE DRINKING WATER?? WHERE?? I really took a closer look myself when I heard about the free pool.
Looking at the spick and span park itself, it’s conclusive how disciplined the citizens are here. They simply do not exploit the amenities and they maintain the cleanliness of the surroundings. I love it here. :D And I’d rather not verbalize the scenario I imagined once a similar pool is put up somewhere like let’s say Rizal Park here or somewhere else. =(
In the park is a mini bridge that gives you another angle for picture taking of the Petronas towers. I look up and there it is, adding up a certain beauty in the skyline. The stainless steel and glass combination is gleaming in that morning time. Frankly, I don’t think I’ll ever get tired looking at it. It is aesthetically very pleasing. =) And it’s time for my morning pose with it.
