Eye on Malaysia

I wanted to go here since months ago. But never had the chance. Beng took me there on Friday. I was so excited. Happy. Suahpah-ness (ulu-ness) in me was revealed. Lol. Where to?

Eye on Malaysia :) The answer to the picture of my previous post.

We reached Taman Tasik Titiwangsa at 8pm. And there was some 'water sky' (water fountain show) going on. The graphic was nice. Took a video of it. Then we headed towards the EYE. It was huge. Probably twice the size of a normal ferris wheel.

The ferris wheel with lights on.

The ferris wheel without lights on.
The gondolas look like they are hanging in the air. They are flying without wings.

The Malaysian ferries wheel consist of 42 gondolas, which can fit about 6 people per gondola. However, you cannot stand in the gondola. Or you will knock your head and make the gondola swing in the air and you will feel dizzy and increase your adrenaline. It is exactly the same version as our normal fun fair ferris wheel besides the size that is bigger. It takes around 12 minutes to complete 5 rounds and you get to enjoy the scenery of KL. Sounds pretty cool, rite?

But compared to London Eye, this ferris wheel is so tiny and so un-canggih.

Theirs are the capsuled kind. It can accommodate 25 people in one capsule and they can stand up straight. It takes 30 minutes to complete a whole round :( I wish I have money to go London.

Anyways, a few pictures I took on that day.

The Petronas Twin Towers from the gondola.

Another shot of the Twin Towers.

Could not snap much cz there's nothing much to snap, really. Since it was all dark, only lights could be seen everywhere.

There was the 'water sky' played at 9pm. And it was 30 minutes long. Initially, it was nice and I was pretty amazed with the graphics.

Like this one.

Supposed to be some Bridge in Malaysia.
Camera not so high tech la. Cannot capture the perfect picture.

And this one.

Supposed to be Istana Budaya.
I captured it too fast. Therefore, only the bumbung of the Istana can be seen. Lol.

I actually find this picture rather amusing.

The water fountain is way taller than Petronas Twin Towers. Hehehe.
Twin Towers look so tiny here. Amazing, kan? No?

But, after sometime I realized they keep repeating the graphics and they are basically promoting Malaysia. With different local holiday destinations, the multiracial citizens, our wonderful buildings like Petronas Twin Towers, KL Tower, Istana Budaya and also international sports arena like Litar Sepang. I kinda got bored of it after a while. But what to do, Visit Malaysia 2007, kan? This is their chance to promote their country. Just let them promote all they want la. Hehehe.

Since we were there, of course we need to pose with the Eye rite?

The person who took me there and paid for my ride :)
