Cool, I've been on the London Eye but this looks huge compared...

that's a whole new definition of ferris wheel. the difference is that the wind does not pass through.
30 minutes up there? i have to think twice.

Great shot! I used to like riding it when I was a kid but after an earthquake experience way back in the late 90's in TR,I developed fear of heights so not sure, if I'd like to try riding it again.

Happy WW!

@ Yen,
Sure! I've added you as well :)

@ eastcoastlife,
woman, I took that from a moving car :P

@ Bing,
Thanks for the link, I've added you as well :)

@ Shannon,
Officially open in March, but there's a Valentine Day promotion on, so I ain't sure too.

napaboaniya said...

@ AO,
ooei!!! Dun rawr liow lar! My screen shake! :P

Easier said than done hor. Though I'm trying hard, really hard but I've yet to "recover"..
When will I get over? I'm unsure as well.

How not to travel via ECP when it's the expressway linked to my house? However it hurts, I still stare at it everytime I pass it. "shen arh! jiu jiu wo ba!!"

You dun "chi ji" me already hor!! *stare at AO*
