In my opinion Hong Kong's and Singapore's skyline are the best.

China should have a lot of these styles of buildings. Hong Kong has a few with these types of facades, too, albeit not as big as this one.

There are several but not as large as the mentioned buildings. Some noticable ones are those in Central and Tsim Sha Tsui which is owned by King Fook Jewelry

I wrote that sentence "by 볼링공@dcinside"... but you write it "by [email protected]"...

Is the Korean figures transformed into other strange things in this forum site?

And have you just changed it to "???" by intention?

It probably means he doesn't have Korean Character/Script downloaded on his computer, so to him it appeared as ???.

I actually liked that game since I find it easier and less time consuming than SC4.

Anyway, the Asian set was really nice. Its a combination of HK and Tokyo buildings.

Makati's skyline is really good.

Makati is a district of Manila? or another separate city?

I look at it as a sub-city but its part of Metro Manila. Its the main central business and financial district.

Honestly, I find Makati as part of Manila even if it has its own mayor. The Metro Manila area has more than 10 sub cities / municipalities and they form one mega urban area.
