It might be early morning mist. The colours look nice and if there's smog, it should have a yellowish tint and block out the rest.

When I was up in Genting, I was able to see the KL skyline and Petronas Towers in the far distance just below the clouds. Quite an impressive sight indeed!

Hong Kong's architecture is not so similar to Singapore's at all. Singapore has a lot of old shophouses in its downtown core, reducing density, whereas in Hong Kong, it's pretty much all concrete and all skyscraper downtown.

Public housing is also different. Singapore's public housing blocks are a lot shorter than Hong Kong's, and the scale of their developments is far smaller than the multi-block housing estates in Hong Kong.

Not really, we're just having a discussion Put it this way, I give alot of respect for hkskyline especially his knowledge and experience on things

Anyway, about Singapore's public housing. Some of the older architecture especially those from the late 70s, mid 80s resemble that of HK. They may not be as grand as HK's but are larger compared to other ASEAN cities.

PBCom is nice. I don't understand why some people hate it so much.

I must admit, the Metro Manila skyline isn't Asia's best but it deserves recognition!
