I was informed that it will cost about RM43 million.
You and I, not Ketua Menteri.
Where will it be located?
At Kota Laksamana, kawasan DAP pulak. PutLAH at your own constituency in Bukit Baru.
Further to that, there will be a mariner close by that cost about RM24 million project. Not forgetting the Menara Berputar that cost a walloping over RM20 million of our money.
With all the attractions, Malacca will one day change to Melaka Bandaraya Unfair. Not funfair. I seriously don't know what is our Ketua Menteri is up to, changing Historical Malacca to a major theme park. I think what our state government should do is to preserve and conserve the historical site instead of making it a laughing piece for all. Why don't make Malacca rich by preserving it's historical and cultural richness for all to see. Malacca is indeed blessed by who and what we are. And nobody can change that.
So why don't the state government used the money to improve the roads, drainage, public transport and mitigate flood that is very rampant in little Malacca.
I thought that the Federal Government intending to curb expenditure, but this little Malacca state government never seems to understand.

MALACCA: The state’s RM40mil Eye on Malaysia project will include several features to make it a one of its kind tourist attraction.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said besides the ferris wheel, there would also be a 90m water screen and entertainment rides.
He said the project was being carried out under a 60-40 joint-venture between Kumpulan Melaka Berhad (KMB) and current operators of the Eye On Malaysia, MST AD Suria Sdn Bhd.
"The 60m ferris wheel is scheduled to arrive here in September and operational by Oct 18,” he told reporters after officiating the groundbreaking ceremony here on Monday.
Mohd Ali said a month of festivities along the Malacca River would be held to announce the Eye’s move from Taman Tasik Titiwangsa to its permanent home at a 2ha site at the Kota Laksamana coastline next to a RM24mil marina project.
Once operational, he said the ferris wheel is expected to attract 700,000 visitors in a year.
