Eye On Malaysia

So, today I took a visitor to Eye On Malaysia, EoM for short.

This is a ferris wheel build beside Tasik Titiwangsa and supposedly will give you a beautiful view of the city. My expectation was that this would be something like London Eye, a similar concept by British Airways built along River Thames, to give visitor a view of London.

The view of London was breathtaking from the Eye, mostly due to the fact that the London Eye is a huge, huge structure. Eye on Malaysia, by comparison, was smaller and puny... really, it felt like going atop the fun fair ferris wheel. It's a good try, Malaysia, but it's embarassing nonetheless.

By the way, there was no Mat Sallehs in Titiwangsa. I am not sure if our Visit Malaysia 2007 is successful or not. My visitor joked that this must be for Malaysians to Visit Malaysia :)

Now that I think about this, who says Visit Malaysia 2007 is for foreigners? It could very well be for the people from Perak, Penang, Kelantan to visit Malaysia.. right? er.. or perhaps that should be Visit KL.. heh heh

The two pictures of EoM were taken from their website. I didn't bring my camera.. too dark for my camera to take good pictures anyway. I wanted to say, that in the EoM website, they don't have any pictures of the city taken from inside the gondola. You know why? Coz there's nothing to take.. hahahahaha...



A "gondola" in London Eye can accomodate 20 - 30 people (see picture). You can walk around the gondola and take photos. A gondola in EoM can sit only 4 people. You can't move around! Notice how high above the city we were in London Eye.
