Petronas it is, although I wished those festive-themed lights can be seen all year round!

Petronas all the way here. Man those are an impressive sight. The lighting on the others doesn't really look all that impressive from these pics. As a second i would have said the one from dubai.

No, it changes based on holidays or certain events, etc.

Here's the upcoming schedule:
