Those wacky North Koreans got jealous over the South Koreans building a gigantic hotel in Singapore, so they decided to build their own. Only problem is they haven't finished it, and it looks like something from 1984. Big surprise, eh?
The funniest thing about this story is that they now deny this grotesquery even exists, although you can clearly see it from any part of the city. Haw!
[I read about this on Bill Harris's Dubious Quality, a blog I've been really enjoying lately.]
