Taming Sari Tower


Melaka’s latest tourist attraction, Menara Taming Sari (Revolving Tower), is expected to open to public on 7th Apr 2008 (Monday).





Menara Taming Sari is located at Bandar Hilir, beside Dataran Pahlawan Megamall. This 110m high revolving tower was built using Swiss technology at a total cost of RM23mil. It is the first of its kind in the country with a revolving observation cabin, which provides a breathtaking 360-degree view of the entire historical areas in Melaka city.





The air-conditioned revolving viewing cabin is equipped with 80 seats. It revolves as it rises from ground level to the top of the tower. Each viewing session would last 7 minutes. The tower is expected to serve 3 viewing sessions every hour.








In addition to the revolving tower for visitors to enjoy bird view of Melaka city, the ticketing building will also be fitted with 5 commercial outlets, which includes cafe, restaurant, and souvenir shops.





Today, 2 days before the scheduled public opening, engineers are working on some final engineering and mechanical touches on the revolving tower and conduct hourly testing, to ensure that it is completely safe for public visitors. During my visit, the cabin air-conditioning equipments were being tested.

A Little Bit of History


Menara Taming Sari was supposed to be built near The Stadthuys (Dutch Square). But, the plan was stopped and relocated, when an ancient Portuguese wall - Middleburg Bastion, was discovered on the site.

London's first Tutti Frutti outlet was officially opened on Friday by Lord Powell who had served former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Aku rindu ...

Sebenarnya gua tidak rindu pada sesiapa pun hatta pada manusia sebaliknya gua rindu pada zaman awal-awal gua bergiat dalam dunia blogging. Aku akan cuba luangkan 30 minit setiap hari untuk tulis apa sahaja aku rasa dan apa yang gua nampak. Selalunya gua akan update selepas waktu bekerja kerana itu sahaja masa yang gua ada. Ketika itu gua tenang kerana gua dapat luahkan perasaan gua melalui penulisan dan sesekali gua ada masukkan hal-hal politik. Dunia politik gua tidak dapat lari kerana gua sendiri minat dengan hal-hal politik di samping rakan-rakan gua ada yang terlibat dalam politik.
