Sungai Lembing is a tin mining town 42 km northwest of Kuantan in Pahang, Malaysia. Lembing is Malay for spear, and "sungai" means river. Per local legend, the local ruler saw a vision of a spear in the nearby river and thus named his town after this vision.
Until the 1970s, Sungai Lembing was a major producer of underground tin. Sungai Lembing town developed in the 1880's when the British set up the tin mining industry, although the history of mining in this area extends much further back. From 1891, the Pahang Consolidated Company Limited, (PCCL), which was under British control, had a 77-year lease to mine the area. PCCL managed the mine from 1906 until its liquidation in 1986 when world tin prices collapsed.
The pit mines were closed in 1986 due to high operational costs and low yields, but during their heyday they were among the largest and deepest in the world. The total tunnel length is 322 km, with a depth of between 610 m and 700 m. A museum highlighting the tin mining industry was opened in 2003. The museum is housed in an old bungalow once used by the mine manager. The museum houses a collection of mining artifacts.
Today the town of Sg Lembing is in decline although it was once the richest town in Pahang, known as El Dorado of the East. In the 1940's about 1400 people worked in the mine. Today many of the wooden shoplots are closed and people are moving away. The town straddles the river, and the main street on the right bank is split by an avenue of majestic trees. At the end, an old wooden building overlooks the padang where games of cricket and other social activities were held.

This morning I was clean my cute and small aquarium☺ , which made of glass jar from Prego pasta sauce which I already used the sauce to made my favorite dishes. Just want to share because Iam decor lover so I decided to decor my aquarium to make my little guppies feel comfortable in their small home.
Here you can see my small aquarium. Yes the guppies are there! Haven't decided yet their name at the moment.
I decorate the jar with my handmade accessories, using faux blue pearl, glass beads and silver plated chain. Then there is a little bird clip. Imagen that little bird are stoping by to say Hi! to the guppies. Some simple plant to made some cozy and green felling.
Finally I put some mix of stone chips, maybe you wonder why the watter is blue. Well, I put some aquarium salt in it. The salt are in blue color, so it made blue water. Dont worry its safe for the guppies.
Now the aquarium are in my work desk, I just love to see it happily swimming in their small home.Bring so much inspiration to my day.
