    There were no details on how to register. Zaobao mentioned the following :
    1. 1000 visitors per day.
    Not sure leh - Chinese wording in Zaobao reads 每次只准最多1000人(居民和外人)同时登楼 = "at anytime only allow 1000 visitors maximum".

    Sooner or later the residents will be annoyed by photographers citing noise nuisance, privacy concerns and force the authorities to shut the sky park off to the public, and a couple of years before the estate goes en bloc and turns private.

    later there will be arguments why resident cant go to their own sky garden (quota hit liao). just like season car park ticket. popular car park r always crowded on holidays that resident cant park near to their block & has to park in another car park (block season ticket holder) & walk all the way back.

    i will never buy a house in a hdb flat that limits when (by means of quota) i can go to my garden after paying so much for the house. good luck to the security or who ever control the traffic.

    I think this is good measure to deter unnecessary characters. If you are the resident there, you also won't be unhappy to see irrelevant people walking around at your own backyard.

    On the other hand does anyone ever wonder what the management is going to do with these entrance fees collected?

    Learn from the New Yorker:

    Quote:
    "A businessman walked into a New York bank and asked for the loan officer. He said he was going to Europe for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000. The loan officer said the bank would need some security for the loan. The businessman then handed over the keys to a Rolls-Royce that was parked on the street in front of the bank. Everythng checked out and the loan officer accepted the car as collateral for the loan. An employee then drove it into the bank's underground garage and parked it there. Two weeks later the businessman returned, repaid the 5,000 dollars and the interest, which came to $15.00. The loan officer said, “We do appreciate your business and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a bit puzzled. While you were away we checked and found that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is why you would bother to borrow $5,000?” The business man replied: “Where else in New York City could I park my car for two weeks for 15 bucks?"

    5$ for photos you are aiming for.
    or spending 5hours aiming for the photo you want to shoot?
    not to impress but shoot to express
