Dear Valued Visitors of MinNature Malaysia,
We hope this little note finds you in good health and high spirits. We have come through together in this time of trials.
As we reflect on the challenging journey we’ve traversed the past 4 years, especially during the unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic and MCO lockdown (Movement Control Order), we are filled with immense gratitude towards each of you. Your unwavering support and visits to MinNature Malaysia have been the lifeline that sustained us through one of the most difficult periods in our beginning chapters.
During the lockdown, the world came to a standstill, and so did the heartwarming sights of families, friends, and enthusiasts exploring and marveling at the miniature wonders within our walls. At one point, I thought to myself, “these miniatures were made for eyes, not walls”. For a very long time, to avoid feeling depressed, we filled our time doing other things to make ends meet. However, those were tough times, not just for us, but for everyone. Yet, in the midst of it all, your encouragement, whether through messages, social media engagement, or your eagerness to visit us post-lockdown, gave us hope and strength.
Your thoughts and support were not just about keeping the doors of MinNature Malaysia open. It was about preserving a space where creativity, culture, and craftsmanship converge – a place that ignites curiosity in both local and foreign visitors towards Malaysia’s heritage and culture offerings and also a place to make us, locals, remember what really makes us, Malaysians. Because of you, we could continue to provide a unique, educational, and fun experience to all our visitors.
As we now navigate a world that is slowly returning to normalcy, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your visits, your smiles, your enthusiasm for our miniature world and especially your warm small chats with us have been the best encouragement we could ask for. You have shown us that together, we can overcome challenges and emerge stronger.
We look forward to creating more magical miniature moments with you. Your continued patronage is not just a visit to a gallery or some may call us a museum; for us, it is a testament to the resilient spirit that we all share. Here’s to more adventures and discoveries within the tiny, yet boundless world of MinNature Malaysia!
With heartfelt thanks and warm regards,
Wan Cheng Huat
