Exploring Local Art: A Miniature Display @ The Gardens Mall

Exploring Local Art: A Miniature Display with a Big Local Flavour at The Gardens Mall from 18 August - 17 September 2023Malaysia is a country with such diversity, from its landscapes to its food and even its architecture. The simple, yet enriched lifestyles that we have known since childhood - the warm char koay teow eaten at a roadside stall, the bag of biscuits that your grandparents bought for you at provision shop by the kati, or the sound of ice clinking when the pak cik scoops sirap bandung air balang into a plastic bag for you to sip on your way home from school.

Among the many dioramas on display is Eric’s Lok Lok stall which features all your favourite treats, with details down to the colour-coded skewers and the overflowing chilli sauce jar. There is also the Kampung Kitchen diorama and if you look closely, you will find a tiny gecko hiding, waiting to be discovered by the exhibit's visitors.

Old Place Barbershop

If you’re longing for memories of your childhood, take a look at Pui Wan’s Ban Fong Provision Shop with its shelf full of biscuit tins and classic gashapon vending machines. Another piece on display is The Old Place, an old-school barbershop complete with mosaic floor tiles, a horse-racing calendar on the wall, and teeny-tiny Master Q comics for customers.
