1950's Soviet Rocket ship architecture

I love The Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and I take pictures of them every time I make it here.
They briefly held the title of tallest free standing structures in the world before Taipei 101 arrived on the city ego building scene.
I think they look like old style Soviet Rocket ships.
Actually, I can't really recall seeing old style Soviet rockets, so its probably safer to say they remind me of what I think such things look like.
I really like KL. It has all the glitz of a major city with just a hint of the grittiness and sleaze that makes a place interesting. In that respect it beats Singapore hands down.
I haven't had much time to take pictures or post on this trip.
I'll try and get some time clear tomorrow morning.
I'm back to HK for the weekend and then head for the Middle East on Tuesday.Stay well
