I like the semi-circle corner. Sleek and modern.

^sweet photo top marks to this building (along with Orient). Interesting that the bottom of the semi-circle tip are just a couple of ordinary glass doors.

I worked at Robinsons-Equitable Tower before and had a great view of Wack Wack Golf and Country Club from my window. I miss working there.

Extra: Do you know that it has a steel bridgeway directly connecting it to Robinsons Galleria?

I had a chance to work there too. The company I worked for had sleeping quarters too. It has a very accessible location. Very convenient indeed to have a mall just below the office tower.

Yes, I use that bridgeway when I don't want the guards to inspect my bag. I enter Robinsons Galleria through Robinsons Equitable Tower, no bag inspections until you reach the mall. It's not good though, imagine, people can enter Robinsons Galleria without having their stuff checked?!?! Robinsons Galleria is actually a security nightmare with all the numerous entrance and exits points it has plus the connections with all the high-rise towers within the complex. And yet, I don't see enough security measures being taken to counter that weakness of the complex.
