(The guy in the yellow helmet: "Gee! I hope the concrete will dry in time for the grand opening.)
In page M3 of the Metro section of today's Star there was a story on part of the preparation for Visit Malaysia Year which officially starts January 1, 2007 which is a few days away. The story was about the construction of a giant ferris wheel in Taman Tasik Titiwangsa. The 60 meter high ride with 42 air-conditioned gondolas will be installed as one of the major attractions for Visit Malaysia Year 2007. Jolly good. But read on and you might shudder...
"According to a contractor, soil testing was done two weeks ago to test the ground before the structure is installed."
Soil testing just 2 weeks ago???!!!
More scary news as you read on. The contractor also said, "We have been working 24 hours to ensure that the structure is up before the launch date on Jan.6" WHAT???!!!
January 6 is just 11 days away, people. We're going to build a GIANT structure which will carry people, tourists and Malaysians 200 ft. high into the air in that time???
What la? Want to do something, don't know how to plan properly also. Maybe, someone should keep an eye on Malaysia.
