Just curious .... if you kanna stuck there and bad luck, stomach ache and you need to poop poop, do you
1. poop in your pant and say sorry to the rest of the 27 ppl in the cabin,
2. take out pant and poop in a corner and say very sorry to the 27 ppl, or
3. try to find an opening / or break the glass, and poop with your backside facing those kaypoh spectators below and make sign to say you are so very very sorry?
Then again, who got tissue paper?
always the Light, .... always.
Did the flyer change the rotation direction ? When I took it earlier this year (Yes, I was a sucker to have paid the $$$ to get on....), it was rotating anti clockwise if you're standing in the car park opposite and looking at the Flyer..... meaning, see the Singapore skyline at the start and end with a view of Tanjong Rhu and the Marina GC at the end of rotation.... Has that changed ?
From a touristic point of view, I believe authentic local creations like Haw Par villa are far more enticing.
Opinions are like A-holes. Everyone's got one.
can i be on an sms alert list if such things happen again? quite a rare photo opportunity! maybe next year they'll have an anniversary?
if stuck from morning till evening kenna skin cancer liao. SPF30 sun tan lotion oso cannot help arh... my fair lady become bronze goddess!
I'm sure they have enough people ranting about the situation already. They're already doing their best. Nobody wanted this to happen. It can happen anytime, anywhere in the world. Let's take some pride in what our country can offer instead of dissing them cos of some tech errors ..........the london eye did have a few problems too..........mrt n lrt n nel too had problems too.............
Have 4 tickets expiring next week, wonder they would extend it since no booking is allowed. Not timely!!
Finally real news in Singapore. My friend is editor for Straits Times and I've heard they've had problems trying to come up with content..
Just read in today's paper that the London Eye has emergency water, food, blanket and toilet facilities in each capsule and the worst case was 1 hour of stuck time. It also has its own power generator, can freely rotate if needed and some sort of rope rescue system. Our Singapore flyer only has an intercom.
Worst, an intercom with no information when tourists were wondering what happened. The staff were probably running around to get approval for "official" statement. Even the news on mediacorp was appealing to public for pictures and / or video.
Btw, did you notice the rescuer in the picture in today's newspaper does not seem to be an SCDF person?
