Where Can You See This Mountain From Singapore?

Or if you prefer the mountain in a romantic sunset setting:

I have been very busy lately so I could hardly find the time to update this blog. Therefore, I think I will just choose the fast and easy way out and simply "plagiarize" an idea from Icemoon's blog. It is from one of his posts with the same title. But mine has an additional question about something else tall as well:


1. What is the name of this mountain?

2. From which location in Singapore are the photos taken from?

3. Do you know how technicians change light bulbs for the tall light structure shown in 2 of the photos?

I must confess that I do not know the answer to Question 1. (I just hope that it is not Gunung Pulai which Icemoon blogged about. Perhaps he can use his excellent Google Earth skills to find out the answer for me.)

He still hasn't done my 'assignment' regarding the shooting in Queenstown.

victor, looks like you and icemoon have been enjoying the view of the same mountain...from different angles.

Icemoon said...

yg, you must help us by identifying the lamp post first.

icemoon, victor goes to the civil defence academy at jalan bahar for some course, i cannot remember what. he could have taken the shots from somewhere near there. i'll check the lamp-posts when i drive by that area again.

Hey, how about the question on how they change the light bulbs? Anyone has any idea how it's done?

icemoon, the tall light structures are in the compound of the civil defence academy; they are not at ntu or nie. i went to the muslim cemetery, behind the academy, at lim chu kang to have a look at the light structures.
i think, to bring out the lights, all they need to do is flick a switch in the lamp-post and the bulb holders will come down.
