CELEBRICKTION at Bangsar Village (Part 2)

This portion of the diorama features a street market scene, with Central Market as the backdrop - a prominent architectural landmark of the cultural market district associated with the Petaling Street area in Kuala Lumpur.

Besides urban based architectural builds, there was also a diorama featuring village-based architecture that depict 'kampung' scenery. While bungalow scaled structures in town areas used masonry and tiles in the colonial style, 'kampung' houses in the olden days were built in timber and raised on stilts.

Something a little more contemporary, below is a scene of a typical Malay 'warung' (roadside  restaurant) with its distinctive covered but open dining area...

...and here's another sight that's uniquely Malaysian, a PETRONAS gas station - Petronas is the national producer of petroleum.
