The world is in awe - Malaysia is not impressed

Robert Alain aka 'Spiderman' came back. After trying to climb the KLCC twin towers twice - in 1997 and 2007, he finally managed to make the ascent.

Google about it in news, and you can see it's reported around the world how the Frenchman's success of reaching the peak of the 88 storey tower with his bare hands in the pre-dawn hours.

Two hours later, he reached the top of the tower, and police detained the 46 year-old to 'facilitate investigations for trespassing without a permit'.




Robert has scaled over 80 buildings around the world, including the Eiffel Tower, London's Canary Wharf building, New York's Empire State Building, Chicago's Sear's Tower and the world's tallest building, Taipei 101, in Taiwan.

My question is... this man has done more for Malaysia in a day by putting us on the map with his feat. And he's getting arrested? Oh well... maybe Melaka boleh bagi dia Datukship. I bet he's generated more headlines for our country more than Shah Rukh Khan has...


PS - It's strange that a Frenchman has given me something to celebrate with our country's National Day more than anything closer to home. France boleh?

PPS - Siap kibarkan Jalur Gemilang tuh bila sampai puncak...

PPS - UPDATE - Dia kena fine RM2000... merasalah!

akhirnya dia berjaya jugak kan..
dah lame aku nak tgk dia smpai atas..
rase aku spiderman btol pon xberani nk diri kat puncak.hoho..
tahniah!

hilang akal betul la mamat ni... kalau aku sure dah kecut tel*q dah... hehehe... anyway tahniah, no one can beat that.

I think if the authorities nak tangkap dia before dia dapat naik ke bola tu, lama dah dorang tangkap. I think this time they let him accomplished his mission so that he won't do it again the future.

He was arrested because he had no permit to climb.. kot la dibuatnya member silap pegang ke apa ke, jatuh, sapa nak tanggung tu kan...

ehehehe... actually mamat tuh was too fast for anyone. by the time they spotted him - according to reports dia da pon sampai sebab dia gerak laju sangat.
