Ain't that a tad too sarcastic? I mean seriously, why bother expressing your views in such a way?

Seriously, even though im a Malaysian and the Petronas Twins is always in my view right from my office window, my heart still goes to the World Trade Center. Nothing beats the sheer simplicity and elegance that it holds throughout.

I love the Petronas Twins for its modernity and uniqueness, but the WTC is just something really majestic, despite being boxy. The huge presence it displays is just astonishing, and to be fair, Im not going to vote.

im not sarcastic,the way you read my comment make it look so..and one more thing,when i say dull,its mean DULL,not UGLY whatsoever,like what some people here say ptt is matelic,swfc is solid and so on.it is what i see from that photo,thats my opinion...please respect that..you want to say wtc is beautiful,go on,but you cant change what people point of view,its a matter of taste..actually this thing is simple,but then you try to act like "victor the good" by making me "guyversa the bad"

Ain't gonna argue with you, and please Im not making you sound bad. Just scroll back and see how you have been replying on other people's expression, I mean, let them be if they find the WTC is much more attractive than the PTT, so lets just keep our own opinions to ourselves. Im not blaming you for anything, but just accept other people's point of view too.

Cheers.

The Woolworth looks tiny in that picture, and even that one seemed incredibly big when I stood in front of it!
