    I've heard so much about Royal Selangor Pewter's creative designs and craftsmanship. So, I did some basic research on the world's largest pewter company and found out that the company set up a visitor centre in Kuala Lumpur.

    So, I drove my car to Jalan Usahawan 6, Setapak Kuala Kuala Lumpur. It was a 45 minutes trip from my house. At first glance, the building look huge, modern and impressive - with striking transparent window panels. Overall I have to say the visitor centre is modern, impressive, educational packed and full of creative displays - I truly enjoyed my trip!

    Here are some photos from my recent trip.

    Picture 1 - Go GREEN + RECYCLE

    Some REAL CREATIVE exhibits in the centre. Simple yet mesmerizing!

    Picture 2 - Hands On The Wall

    [​IMG]

    Hundreds of hand prints motifs on the wall belong to talented artisan that created over millions of world renowned pewter products

    Picture 3 - The 5 - Star Petal

    A red coloured flower blossoming on the compound of the visitor centre. Love the colouration of this flower - yellow (centre) and pinky red (outer)

    Picture 4 - The Mold

    [​IMG]

    The liquid pewter solidified instantly once it is poured into the mold! This lady is removing the handle for the pewter tankard.

    Number one has fantastic color. I keep going back and looking at it. A really nice shot. Number two is also very interesting, but the angle is a bit extreme. Would have loved to see a flat horizontal version of the same picture.

    LaFoto & mar1u5,

    Thanks for the kind compliments!!! :hug:: I did not expect Picture 1 to turn out like that. Honestly, I HATE to take indoor photos - it's nearly impossible to get decent photos due to the irregular lighting.

    Picture 2 is the exit point of the visitor centre - the escalator going up is the way up to the main entrance. I was figuring the best way to snap the place. Will do better next time :D

    Two more photos:

    Picture 5 - The 'Bony Leaf' At the PEWTER'S Garden

    [​IMG]

    Love those bony like features at the back of this leaf - remind me of fish bones :)

    Picture 6 - CHEERS!

    [​IMG]

    Tankards of pewter are stacked up to create a model of Kuala Lumpur City Centre.

    Cheers!
