$1 coin

I found 2 $1 coins at my husband's shop. This kind of coin is no more in use . The $ sign is not used anymore. Instead it's Ringgit Malaysia (RM). It was bigger than the size of a 50 sen.

Because of this coin , I recalled our trip to Mines Wonderland.

Coin Garden at Mines Wonderland

The Mines Wonderland, built around a former mining-pool, is a recreation park that is fast becoming one of Kuala Lumpur's most popular family weekend stops.

The Wonderland offers water sports, amusement rides, a winter-house with snow as well as restaurants and various facilities. It's not far off from the KL-Seremban Expressway.

The Wonderland is about 20 minutes drive away from the heart of the Federal Capital.

At night, glittering floats parade on the lake while a stunning laser and multimedia presentation entertains and mesmerizes visitors.

  15. Haven't been to Mines for ages... The last time was when my daughter was still so small. Still in business? Haven't heard about it for a long time, thought it closed down already - not like Sunway Lagoon, a lot of publicity.
