Petronas is magnificent at night. It seems so modernistic and takes you to the future.

Petronas looks nice. But I can't imagine if the scraper had a lighting effect just like The Centre in HK.

Petronas has some special effect lighting as well. I've seen photos posted by fellow Malaysian forumers.

I used to hate those white neon lights in the BoC but now I'm starting to like it

But for HK, if not The Centre, I like AIG Centre's lighting.

Cheung Kong has far more visible space for neon and changing lights than AIG. I find AIG's neon facade rather limited - only the eastern side is lit.

Yes only the eastern side is lit but it's a corner building. But I really like the lighting effect and the animated title on the top.

The weird part of the design is the side that is illuminated is not facing the harbour, but rather at another building next door.

Europa tower:


The tallest tower in Lithuania (on the left of the photo). It has 33 floors. Built in 2004. It has a great view from 33rd floor at night! I saw all the capital of Lithuania. It was a great feeling.


Third from left

I didn't have a tripod for those pictures. I do hope to go to KL again to take some better shots with my tripod and catch some special lighting effects.
