I absolutely adore the office lights coming from the tower's interior during the night. It surly is one great looking building, I'd love it even better if they keep some of the golden/bronze stripes they could've looked so good combined with the black glass, also I agree, it does have some 70's - 80's futurism in it.

At this angle, this tower with the cluster of other tall buildings looks nicer in the background of thick greenery. Clean, neat, sleek.

Actually yes, they are cultivation (not necessary rice) at the Hong Kong side

Seriously, I don't understand the point in getting snappy over an honest question.

I was also curious -- rice paddies or no, I agree that the big swath of green agriculture makes a fascinating contrast with the futuristic skyline -- so I looked it up. Apparently Hoo Hok Wai is home to a bunch of fishponds and an agricultural preserve:

Quote:
...fishponds and the tract of wetland as unimportant places when looking far. Actually, Hoo Hok Wai fishponds located in wetland reserve are of high ecological value as feeding and roosting grounds for wintering birds that fly from the Lok Ma Chau Loop across San Tin to Mai Po. If the Hoo Hok Wai were destroyed, the wintering birds would be stopped from flying to Mai Po posing a threat on the ecological balance here.

To your surprise, Hong Kong has fishponds to produce fishes and farm lands to cultivate vegetables supplied for local citizens. The fishponds collect in the northwest New Territories. They originate in 1930 when the villagers built bunds, called Kei Wai, surrounding the area for resisting the sea wave, which are the predecessors of the current fishponds. These fishponds cover more than one thousand acres and produce fishes up to two thousand tonnes with a value of about 60,000,000 Hong Kong dollars.
