The logo on the glass window looks sort of like BMW (too blurry to be sure), and the only BMW that has such long a rear window is the 7 series L.

Hey, that's next to the incineration facility, right? The one they might tear down?

So it looks like my post got deleted, a big WTF, i'm starting to see the issue with mods here.

Anyway, last update from me, unless the tower doesn't get finished for another year!

Why would your pic have been deleted?

Nice pic, what camera do you use?

A710 IS, the reviews weren't lying, a fantastic point and shoot.

I might get a S3IS (cheap) for some superzooming sometime.

I posted a picture inside a car. Unless I'm mistaken, and I posted it somewhere else/ I was dreaming...

Yes your post was deleted. My post replying to your post was deleted as well. I don't understand why your post would be deleted since it was providing a construction update.

According to my friend, today Nina Tower was lit up and the whole building flashed in patterns consisting of fireworks and flowers and the chinese word for Nina Tower appeared but this only happens on one side of the building.

I think it's kinda cool in an offbeat sorta way... where else are you really gonna find a modern skyscraper clad in green bamboo structure? It's so uniquely Hong Kong.

Maybe they forgot to remove the bamboos structure of the top.

If I was in Hong Kong I'd probably drive or take a train to the location and ask a construction worker what is happening to the top. In front of my apartment they've been digging and putting pipes every where so one morning I just walked over and asked "what are you guys building here?"
