Skywatch Friday-Tanjong Pagar

Saw some cute sculptures in front of the building. Hope you can see the reflection of the sky on the glass panels.
In the background you can see few blocks of HDB Flats (government flats) still under construction. They are HDB Flats build by private developers. They are the most expensive HDB Flats so far. Gone are the days where HDB flats are considered alternative cheap housing. Nowadays HDB Flats can cost more expensive than private condominiums. As land is scare in tiny Singapore, properties over here are so expensive. You can no longer find any flats that are in the five figure sum, they are all over six figure sum for a decent flat. If you are interested to see how an HDB Flat look like, you can view the virtual showroom in here.

Noticed the bridge linking each block, they are supposed to be roof gardens. These bridge are so heavy and each weighed heavier than an aeroplane.

These flats are known as The Pinnacle @ Duxton, Singapore. I will tell you more in later post about these flats.

For other sky watchers, please hop over to Skywatch blog.

Very expensive indeed. Your country has one of the highest cost of living in asia. So small yet so progressive.

Law, I guess being small is an advantage too. It is easier to manage. Yes cost of living is high over here compared to our neighbouring countries.
