Yes very stunning. It looks almost larger than life in comparison with the neighbouring buildings.

nice pic Skybean.
Did you go to Macau, or just went around Shun Tak Center?
My office is nearby and i would troll around Shun Tak, by the 'pedestrian bridge' to check on ICC. Can the public go on top of that helipad?
