The Mines

The Mines, which previously known as Mines Shopping Fair launch its new name & logo on 10th March 2010. Over the last 2 years, CapitaMalls Asia had transformed The Mines to a contemporary neighborhood shopping mall with a major upgrading work inclusive of creating additional retails space, revamped the Carpark system, changing new wash rooms, created additional link bridges and new sets of escalators inside the mall.

I didn't know at all that the name of this shopping mall has changed nor did i know that previously it actually known as Mines Shopping Fair. All this while i just know it as Mines Wonderland and i'm still wondering what had happened to the 'original' Mines Wonderland. Whatever it is, shopping mall is still a shopping mall and the only difference is the canal that flows in The Mines.

supposed to be the main entrance

a small stage for one of the 1st anniversary celebration programs

here's the mall, of course only part of it :)

'the mines' which i wish is mine :)

i don't know why i like this little bridge so much ;)

tempted to ride?

here's the fare hahahaha - a 15 minutes cable-car-ride to Genting only costs RM5

of course there's a price for pleasure - so who say money cannot buy happiness? May be yes but for temporary only

a reminder to myself - there's a light at the end of the tunnel
