Kuala Lumpur – the Alpha City

The history of Kuala Lumpur started in 1857 – not too long ago in comparison with other cities with global significance. Nevertheless, the city managed to grow from a tiny settlement of tin prospectors in the middle of the jungle into a huge city, capital of Malaysia, and one of the Alpha cities in the World. Having the population of about 1.6 million people, Kuala Lumpur gained its global recognition not only due to its economic potential in the Asian region, but also thanks to the remarkable and unique mixture of culture styles and trends, reflected in the city architecture in particular.

Petronas Twin Towers, a magnificent all-glass building in the very heart of the city of Kuala Lumpur, is one of the well-known emblems of the city itself as well as the remarkable and noticeable mark on the cityscape. With the gallery below you have a chance to enjoy the images of Petronas Twin Towers as well as many other attractions Kuala Lumpur offers to the inhabitants and guests. Huge retail malls, super-modern corporate buildings are located side-by-side with the best historic architecture of religious temples, minarets, and palaces. Kuala Lumpur is a relatively young city, but it is obviously thanks to such a young age, the city gained its unique and fresh profile, featuring the fusion of the best inherited traditions from the past and all the modern attractions.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
