#1 - WALL PAINTINGS IN MENGLEMBU.

This particular morning I suggested to hubby to have breakfast in Menglembu as I have a special purpose. As we were coming out from Pete Corner after our dinner, hubby pointed out a wall painting in the back lane to me.

I like to collect photos of wall paintings and I walked over to take a look. I saw not one but many. The back lane was dark and not safe or possible to take photos of the wall paintings. I decided to return for the photos in the morning and the best time is breakfast time when it is not hot.
A few mornings later, we started out about 8.20 am in the hazy morning.

The whole place was misty and foggy. Once we reached the site, I wasted no time and hubby went to get his breakfast at the nearby coffee shop.

This was the first painting that hubby saw on the night we were at Pete Corner having our dinner. It says "Welcome to Menglembu Cultural Corridor".

This painting features the main ethnic groups of Malaysia. Malays, Chinese, Indians, Ibans and Kadazans.

The painting are drawn by local artists.

Dulang washers working at the tin mine.

Chinese drums - usually used for lion and dragon dances and etc.

Lion dance performance.

Charging buffaloes.

3 peanuts and a black dog on the left and a bullock cart on the right.

Menglembu was once famous for its groundnuts.

"I love Menglembu"
I love Menglembu too because of its many variety of yummy food! Will be posting more paintings in another post.

This black dog was chained, it didn't even bark at me.

This one was quietly watching my every move.

Blur view of the Kledang Hills, very popular with hikers.

The lantern festival was just celebrated less than a month ago.

So let us celebrate the festival,

not with the old bread of wickedness and evil,

but with the new bread of sincerity and truth.

(1 Corinthians 5:8, New Living Translation-NLT)

    1. I think it is a community project. It is along the back lane of two rows of shop houses.
