Hi Dianthus... sorry. Been running about lately. :) Its at the airport... :P

So Scorpion has no picture... Hmm... ok, I have a picture but not too sure if it would be considered good... Where do you think I took this picture from? Which building in the CBD? :P

I believe it would have to be the AIA Tower (1st choice) or John Hancock Tower right next to it (2nd Choice).

madwolfie,

Are you sure that it was taken from the Hong Leong Building? See the below photo and compare it with the one you took. It would be impossible to see Clifford Pier, The round restuarant roof and the roof of the shorter white building from the Hong Leong Building as seen in your photo.

:oops!: My bad! After going to you link at trave-earth and seeing the full photo, Actually the white building roof is the roof of the John Hancock Tower and the building to the left is actually in front of the the AIA Tower But because of the lower height it appears the same height as the JHT or side by side. The Hong Leong Building is a lot taller than I thought.

So I concur, it's Dianthus' turn.

sms

Baron, the idea was great in concept, just didn't pan out the way I wanted. :(

ok I retract my earlier praise sms, but even more kudos (?) for admitting you were wrong - takes a big man
