[MOC] Taiping Lake Garden

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, today we are glad to present to you another great MOC of a lake garden in Taiping, Perak, Malaysia by Mr. Ng WY from LUG of Malaysia (LOM).

The Taiping Lake Gardens was originally a mining ground before it was established as a public garden in 1880. This 64 hectars site is an abandoned tin mine made for recreational use. There are about 10 man-made lake and ponds throughout the gardens and its a very nice and peaceful place to visit if you have the chance to visit Malaysia.

Let's have a look at this Lake in LEGO.

The lake garden is easily accessible by the North South Highway, and look at these crowd of tourists here! I suppose its weekend here. The leaves and branches gave the peaceful feeling of this garden. But believe me, this MOC is so much more than this.

A nice gazebo! I love the green and red color scheme of this small hut. All the bamboos here are the special attraction of the garden and you can peep through them to see a groom is posing for wedding photographs as they do that in the real garden.

Tadaa! This is the whole picture of this magnificient MOC! The lake is built with trans clear tiles rather than trans blue tiles. I like it that Mr. Ng WY brilliantly use blue and grey under the trans clear pieces to show the depth of the lake!

At the other side of the lake, there is a canoe activity going on. The gazebo is actually a bridge and the walkway is decorated with all the leaves and plants and bamboos along the way.

Look! There is a wedding photoshoot going on! Every now and then couples are here with their hired photographers to take pre wedding photos for the beautiful scenery  in the lake garden.

Our independence day is coming on the 31st of August. So Malaysia flag is waving on the boat.

Taiping is a very peaceful place for those pensioners to live in and you can see old folks sitting at the benches, talking about the good old days.

The artist is struggling for her new masterpiece. Maybe she can rest and have an ice cream first.

This is beautiful--I love Asian MOCs, and this one is perfect. In addition, the photography really makes me feel like I'm in the scene, not just looking at a model. I've saved this so I can continue to look at all the details in the coming days. Well done!
