Ok I lied. I'm going to do one more post about the Zenith Hotel. As I finished my Sunday afternoon stroll I met with a few workers at the Zenith Hotel and had a chat for 10-15 minutes. I discovered that there will be a countdown at the Zenith Hotel on Tuesday 21st December where tickets will be on sale for Christmas Day luncheon. The official opening will occur on Thursday 23rd December in which the public are invited. After a year and a half of snapping pictures of the Zenith Hotel's exterior, I'm more than eager to get inside and see if the interior is just as impressive!
Yesterday afternoon, I did a round-the-compass photographic essay of the Zenith Hotel, starting from the North (back) face of Zenith Hotel, walking around to the West and South facing facades.

|The nature on this section of Jalan Dato Lim Hoe Lek has been reduced to mere stumps where once it was a thriving network of trees providing much-needed shade from the intense heat of the sun|
|Some trees, however, do remain|
|Up to the 10th floor, the rooms have been completed, as can be seen by the row of curtains in the windows reaching almost half way up|

|The tops of the pink coloured flats can be seen at the base of Zenith Hotel. Are they an eyesore beside this 5-star hotel?|
|The Zenith Hotel is located directly opposite East Coast Mall|
|These old flats are still occupying ground space on the doorstep of East Coast Mall, as the Zenith Hotel peers over|
