They are clearly not afraid of heights.

A condominium resident was astonished to be visited by monkeys even though she lives on the 15th storey.

Stomper Ong shared a video of about five of the primates hanging out around her balcony on Aug 18 at about 9.30am.

"I just wanted to share a rare sight in our estate yesterday," said the Stomper, who lives at Sant Ritz condo in Potong Pasir.

"We were astonished that the monkeys could actually climb this high as we are living on the 15th floor."

A day later, videos were also posted on TikTok of a quintet of monkeys hanging around the side of an HDB block in Jalan Besar with a demonstration of how they climb.
