Penang Botanic arches will finally go down tonight :)

The Penang Botanic Gardens arches will be demolished at 9pm tonight.

State Drainage and Irrigation Department director Anuar Yahya said the work will be carried out at night to avoid inconveniencing visitors, as the gardens were a public area.

Last week, Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen said the arches would be demolished within a week.

There has been an outcry over the arches since May, after reports that one of them had tilted by 38cm.

The arches, costing RM150,000 to build and part of the gardens' RM7mil expansion project, have drawn criticism from various quarters.

Finally, for real the arches will go down tonight. So are you going there to witness this event later? I better stay at home to lazy myself, for I'm afraid I might be boil over with the government wasting our hard earned money again...
