Looking back and across the river
Here is the new Parliament House by the river, the seat of power. And the towering skyscrapers we left behind. From the left is Maybank, Bank of China, Stanchart, a little back is Singapore Land Building, Left tower of UOB joining the right tower by a connector. Big bird is just sitting in between them. The famous calculator building behind is OCBC, Overseas Chinese Banking Corporation. Incidently the locals used OCBC to mean 'Orang Cina Bukan Cina.' A colloquial swipe for the local Chinese who have lost their identity.
