    Visited with Rookie...

    The Peninsula is based over 20 floors with office space covering 23,774.00 Square Ft. which was supposed to be completed by 2009 but didnt look to decent inside.

    With a total height of just under 109 Ft. the rooftop provided brilliant views.

    We came across this looking for other spots to hit up, After some clever thinking we were in :rolleyes:

    Shortly after this last picture in the toilets our luck changed...

    We entered this large office room, The lights came on from a sensor and a security guard got up from where he had been sitting around a corner.

    'What are you doing?'

    Taking pictures said Rookie, We just carried on taking shots while he watched us. Whispered to Rookie that we should be leaving and set for the door.

    I was taking that while he was watching us...

    We headed over to the guard and walked to the lifts, Made general chat asking about if he got bored sat up there in the dark and does the lift work cause we had to walk up 20 flights of stairs.

    Once in the lift Rookie lied and explained that we were architecture students and had spoken to a site manager about taking the pictures.

    Next thing he said shocked us slightly - 'I will take you to the site manager he is on the second floor'

    We ended up at the site managers door with Rookie explaining that he had both emailed and rang about our 'Visit', The guy said he knew nothing about it but we said we were leaving now so it would be fine.

    The guard then showed us out through a rear exit with Rookie talking about how he had 'Lost his bearings' and couldnt tell where he was.

    The guard opened the gate and we walked free, Happy days...
