For those who are not familiar, The Pinnacle@Duxton is an iconic, unique public housing project that has unique features that sets it apart from other HDB projects (HDB stands for Housing & Development Board, which builds the public housing in Singapore). From their website http://www.pinnacleduxton.com.sg/, it seems that the project is "located at the site where the first two HDB blocks in that area were built, it is the first 50-storey public housing project in Singapore, housing 1,848 apartments in 7 towering blocks.Born out of the first international design competition for public housing, it is also the first in the world with 2 unique skybridges linking the 7 blocks at the 26th and 50th storey. The skybridges create possibly the longest continuous skygardens in the world, offering panoramic views of the city skyline."

Our recent trip to the sky bridge on the 50th floor at the Pinnacle@Duxton. The gals didn't expect a garden to be on top of the building. They were looking for more on-the-ground type. It was a lovely view at the top, esp at night, it was a 360 degree view as we walked round the whole tower. It was a nice feeling to see the panaromic scene of our tiny island, the girls imagined where our home was in the background. They enjoyed the night breeze, gazing at the stars, playing in the playground, and posing for photos (was kicking myself when i realised that my digicamera's battery was flat, could only snap a few with my mobile phone)
