I will be there on Tuesday. Well the HK observatory calls for some showers and F4 winds (30km/h), so it's shouldn't be much of a problem ( I hope..)

Two updates shot yesterday from more or less the SAME angle :P Sorry for that!



And one more today...

The top label reads 55, so it's at somewhere around 64 storeys now.

I think it should be the other way around, if you skip the unlucky numbers you're floor count will will be higher then the actual floor count.

like this:
6 5
5 4
3 3
2 2
1 1

Or are they not counting the refuge floors?

I think he means that they don't have any labels above 55, but you can see that the works have gone far above that level. So he estimated that it's at 64 right now.
