too heavy maybe? instead of replacing it with iron/steel they should consider replacing it with precast concrete so no one will take it and its cheap to replace but then again if it is cheap to replace, how do they make money out of it??? Better to buy new at maybe 10 thousand ringgit a wheel. It is expensive because it has to be made to look antique!!! Moneycum!!

The wheel theft was at St. John's Hill in Melaka. IMHO, the melaka state government has left out St. John's Hill site in their over-zealous fun-fair-nization project on the other historical sites in the UNESCO heritage area. Has anyone been to the site lately? I am a Melaka-boy and am really disgusted at the state of the historical site. It is just like a fun fair. Colourful lights all over the place. Funny rides here and there. A keris styled amusement park ride and not to mention a broken down monorail. They would had a gigantic ferris wheel , but it went bankrupt.

Well, state government might as well flatten St. John's Hill for an up-market condo project eh....... or perhaps a petting zoo. :rolleyes:

It is ok, leonard. In fact I am glad they don’t disturb the St. John hill..

St. John hill is a great place for runner/jogger… I used to run up the hill but no more now as it will hurt my old knee.

It is one of my childhood memory… hopefully it will remain as it was – a place for runner and a hideout for some puppy-love students from the nearby Malacca High School..

Agree 110%. This is not how you run a historical site. But then again this is Malaysia where shit like this happens wherever & whenever there's money to be made.

The Malacca where I used to live were different.

1992-1995 (form 3-5, ACS Jalan Tengkera) - follow dad's transfer to Balai Bomba Jln Kubu from Sban

98-2000 (TKR Manuf. Tangga Batu) - first working experience after college.

:D
