    Where did you shoot from?

    Top of former Westin Stamford (now Swissotel)?
    Top of UOB Plaza (There used to be a "Top of the Plaza" resturant)

    Cause the 2 buildings are the only few buildings above 70 storeys and has a resturant on the top, that I can think of.

    Am wondering if there's a certain dress code requirement?
    And do we need to make a reservation in advance?
    Appreciate it too if there's some feedback on the quality of the food as well as the rough pricing.

    Scared I go up there not enough $ have to wash dishes...

    By the way, would it be wierd to set up a tripod and start taking pics??

    Well, up to you to dress lor. Different people different dress sense.

    Food wise - not worth it.

    Well, if you get a nice place to yourself and your partner, then a tripod setup is okie. I bought my tripod up but din get a good spot so I shot freehand
