    it's technically not in SP. looks like part of SP but if you go near it, it actually has a small compound of its own, fenced away from SP. good guide for one who's going to SP and lost his way though

    It belongs to Singtel. Well, at least that was what the sign says so when I was studying in SP.

    hehe will look out.. i like to wear thailand shirt to FC5/4.

    Design of tower sure is awkward.. what happends if one part of that cube like structure falls off? choy ah .. .but hmmm.. 2 thumbs up for the architect who built this!.

    STIX-Singtel Exchange maybe? heard alot of ppl tok about this..

    hmm later i am going to BUGIS to take a picture of one of the most Best Designed building i have ever seen here in Singapore. I think some ppl know which one.. the one with statues of men holding up a ball on top of the building...i dont know what the building is for also..

    yes yes.. "they" needed to have a good reception with the "other" being.. jodie foster..you in there?

    suddenly its a shield generator.. so when ppl attack.. singapore initiate a shield barrier around its main territory and blast an energy field outside the barrier so all the enimies die.

    Best designed??? Since when did ornaments(which I think should not be considered as part of a building composition) contribute to "best design"?

    Its a wonder that its still a mystery what that building really if for. I tried to find out the last time I went back to Singapore but nothing came out.
