About a week ago, a Russian daredevil couple was called out by Malaysians after photos of them standing on top of the tallest building in Malaysia circulated online. Following that, the lady has now decided to share her ‘struggles’ she faced while climbing the tower.
⚡️The time has come and I'd love to share the giga story how I climbed the incredible Merdeka 118⚡️
Couldn't help adding @steveaoki music here as it was playing in my head when I was standing on top of the world.
Feel the dizziness of being there with me

In a series of tweets, she revealed that the climb itself took her over 36 hours with over 20 hours spent hiding in a small concrete box. She started her thread by mentioning how she booked an apartment that overlooks the Merdeka 118.
She shared that she spent several weeks trying to figure out the structure of the building. After that, she stated that she ‘started’ her mission by wearing a hijab. She then disguised herself as a construction worker and climbed up the building.
“I ran the first 32 floors and got overheated. I had to lie down on the concrete floor naked to cool down a little bit. I drank all the water I had”, she said.
She then revealed that as soon as she felt relaxed, she saw some workers and had no choice but to hide herself in a small concrete box. The workers did not leave the area and she had no choice but to stay in the concrete box for up to 25 hours.
“I was in pain, and I couldn’t move my body at all. I can’t cry nor can I straighten my legs and I had no food, water or any sleep”, she added.
She then mentioned that when the workers were on a break, she quickly finished off the climb and managed to reach the 53rd floor.
She then ended the post saying that,
“It was the hardest climb in my life, but if I could do it again, I definitely would. Lastly, I respect the laws of every country. Although what I do is trespassing sometimes, I take special care not to cause any damage to anything, which other roofers sometimes do. My goal is to create memorable art by capturing the moments of world’s tallest buildings.”
