Indonesia’s Old China Town

I started these builds since June 2015 to participate for my LUG’s community build celebrating Chinese New Year for Dunia Bricks 2016 at March 2016.

Indonesia itself is a multicultural country with lots of diversity spread across the nation with our national slogan’s “Unity in Diversity”. Having said that, there are a lot of Chinese heritage and ethnic lives in Indonesia which I’m one of them, but no…I can’t read and write Chinese, all the writing on the signs there are all copy-paste from Wikipedia…hahaha

This community build was meant as a nostalgic of a classic China Town in Indonesia which you still can find it now, though it looks a lot different with modernization here and there…well, not to forget added with too much classic Kung-Fu movies and shows…hahaha

Though the official modular building sets are the one that brought me back from my dark-ages back in 2013 which I’m still collect and following the series, but it’s one of the theme that I’m afraid the most since I think it’s hard to top the official sets and I’m not skilled enough to do so. Therefore, I humbly present to you my first modular building that I’d made 🙂

Here is the modular buildings:

  1. Quoting you: “it’s hard to top the official sets and I’m not skilled enough to do so” ! That Old China Town MOC definitely tops the Modular official sets, a superb creation you have every right to be proud of and you may be thanked for sharing with so much detail.
