More Tall Tales

Just after I finished posting the last entry, I hear about Malaysia planning to build a 100 storey tall tower!

I have to ask – what is the fascination with tall buildings?!

As an icon it is not tall enough – the Burj in Dubai is much taller. Furthermore, we already have the 88-storied Twin Towers – still the tallest twin towers in the world. I don’t understand why we need to build another skyscraper.

Unless of course, it would create more local jobs … which is rather unlikely as most construction workers and consultants are¬†expatriates!

I shall wait to see how this develops!
