Light Up the Sky! Hong Kong Skyline at Night.

I remember a TV series called 'Noble House'. It is based on the 1981 novel of the same name by James Clavell. The movie takes place in Hong Kong and tells a story of a business tycoon who had just been elevated to the status of “Tai Pan,” which means “absolute authority.”

'Noble House' was based on a real company called Jardine Matheson and Co, with roots that can be traced back to the opium trade in China. Today it is a Fortune 500 company. Its building is right in the middle of the photo above.
