  5. IAN BIRO; I just checked through my comments again and spotted 'Guess Who?' for the first time.
    Clueless, I checked out your profile and I'm still none the (Danny) Wise-r.
    Is that your new 'Pen' name?

  12. Great shot Stan. My photo was really taken from the hole that has the key before. It was not edited for I don't like editing my picture at all. Thanks for visiting me I do appreciate it much.

  13. Great pictures... the building is SO tall, I would be afraid to go to the top. The sky looks lovely.
    BTW, your doggie is SO cute.
    Have a great week.

  15. I never used to like modern architecture, but these huge tower blocks with their clean lines and multitude of windows, especially against a clean blue sky - well, they're quite beautiful, aren't they?

  16. Thanks Jay; Love them or hate them, they stand as monuments to their designers.

  17. Are you visiting Malaysia? I went up the Komtar building, and my husband was very generous and treated us to a very delicous meal. I think he wanted to make up trip up the tower a memorable one.

  18. Thanks Ann; I'm in Thailand, but have made several trips to Malaysia - though I've only visited Penang - the last being in 2006.

  19. I like it. It's not too oppressive on the skyline.

    On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you!
