For over 120 years, the Penang Botanic Garden has managed perfectly well without these concrete structures.
But now, in the name of ‘development’, ‘progress’ and ‘upgrading’, concrete is being dumped in the Garden and useless structures are sprouting up. (The slideshow above includes photos of the horrendous new arches at the Garden entrance and of the administration block being built near Moon Gate.)
How sad. And to think they use public funds for all this.
