World Trade Centre is on Jln Jendral Sudirman. I was there to lunch and have dinner. The World Trade Centre logo on the right hand corner of the building. On the left corner, shouts "HSBC". When I took taxi to where I am now, no taxi driver ever mention this building name. They will use the name of the building next to it, "Metropolitan". Most of the time I will use "Meridien". They should know the name "Meridien", cause it is a hotel.
On knowing I am there to lunch, I pack myself a photographing tool. This is taken after I passed the main entrance for vehicle. Is a long walk to the building from the main road. There is an exit at the right side. Where I get to taste chinese cooking in a restaurant along a street. The food is not bad. Haven't been there after the first visit.
On the left of this building, there is a Starbuck coffee outlet. I haven't been there for coffee yet. Hmm.. the price is slightly higher compare to Malaysia. Have not been to coffee outlet such as Starbuck, Coffee Bean, Gloria Jeans for quite sometime. Recently, I have been going to outlet such as Dome for a drink, being the reason of free reading of magazine. That is the only way me going to pass time in coffee outlet. In the my younger days, the coffee outlet is a meeting place. Since the day I lost touch with that group of friends, visiting coffee outlet is more on taking lunch or dinner. I used to love taking cakes from Coffee Bean, I recently switch to Secret Recipe. The switching was due to someone else choice. So I tag along.
Not able to take a clearer photo. In there is dim, not enough light. A big wall with the word World Trade Centre. So far have not notice any events in there. Or maybe I should mention that I do not bother if it is politics related. If there is exhibition, most likely I am there. No grand exhibition so far. A MAS airline customer service is on the right of this World Trade Centre wall. Been there once, to change my ticket to fly to Malaysia earlier by one week.
At the building entrance, there are painting on display. There are more paintings being exhibit surrounding the center pillar. The center pillar are lifts. On the first time in this building, I felt disappointed. There was these paintings facing the main entrance, depicting the thoughts on another country. I guess the painting is from the local as the title on the painting is in Bahasa Indonesia. The title seems to criticise another country and put the country in bad position. My question, why not criticise your own country before criticising on other countries? Hmm..
Picture on the left, is a gate seen from the main entrance of World Trade Centre. This gate lead to the lifts. Is close in day time. I have been lunching there twice and the gate is closed. At night it is open, so I get to pass the lifts through this gate instead of walking around the pillar to get into the lifts area.
I took this when I exit the World Trade Centre. They scan everybody who wish to enter the building. This do make me feel safe. Am I worried? Hmm.. It never cross my mind that I might not be safe. Unless I do experience it. Things like bombing the building is something serious. As recently happened in UK. So I guess everybody is cautious.
