【Windmill|風車】Eco World Under the Windmills World Culture Festival |荷蘭風車節

August 9, 2015, Sunday
✈1
Is the next day after the orchid floria and it's so weird to me, as for my weekly routine, if I went out on Saturday and I will be home on Sunday. But this one, I mean that was the last day of the event.
 *************************************************************************
這是非常不一樣的週末,因為平時只要我週六有出門,我週日一定會待在家休息。 休息是為了走更長遠的路,假如硬硬要讓自己那麼幸苦,只會自討苦吃。


✈2
Here's the one, one of my blogger friend, baoqiong tag me on Facebook about this event, because she knew I'm obsessed to visit the one organize in Johor before, but in the end I still miss it before it ends.
 *************************************************************************
但是雖說如此,所以我才說這是例外的週末,週六去了胡姬花展,週日再到士毛月的風車展。其實要多謝博客baoqiong的通知,因為先前這個風車展是在柔佛舉辦,但是我沒辦法趕上,所以當他得知吉隆坡附近也有的時候,他就迫不及待的在臉書上tag了我。

✈3
And here I come to this place, follow waze passed by the Semenyih downtown and found it in the end. Before it I was like where's Semenyih ya? Is that very far from my place?? Actually not though, just an hour drive without any jam.
 *************************************************************************
還真的很有心駕到那麼遠看風車,我媽媽一直說我們兩位傻了,去到那麼遠,而且還是不怎麼確定的地方,一直兜兜轉轉很多輪才找到。。。他們的牌子的確放到很大個,但是顏色不夠鮮豔,不注意看也不會看到!

✈4
It was so freaking crowded, like I never expect so many people, due to that we got to park our car like few miles away. Thank god they have this shuffle bus that carry people from  the parking to here. 
 *************************************************************************
跟著路牌去到了停車場,原來是沒有停車場的,是要把車停在路邊,然後走進去。。。列熱當頭,我還真的有一陣子要掉頭回家,還好遇上了舉辦當局準備的轉搭巴士,將我們載到門口。

✈5
And due to the hot weather, my mom started to complain that she shouldn't come with me, she would rather sit at home relaxing and watching her TV. Yup, in the end my mom decided to come with me, but actually I felt bad after that, because she got to sit at a place which has covered to wait for me until I finish all the photos taking. 
 *************************************************************************
到了門口先要到裡面(不在這張照片裡面,而是這張照片對面的建築物內)廠商拿手環戴上了才可以進去。 這時候我媽媽開始碎碎唸說“我很後悔跟你一起來,我這個時候應該是很舒服的躺在家看我的電視劇,為什麼要來這裡曬太陽?”

✈6
This is right in front of the entrance, when she came in that time, she straight away went into this and said I wait you here. Then I asked her don't you want to walk around? Nope she said, see from here is enough and look like the sun...
 *************************************************************************
所以一入口他就直接往這裡走,她說“我在這裡等你,你拍完照片後再回來找我!” 我問”她那妳不用去走走看?“,她說“那,在這裡就已經看完啦!”

✈7
It has roughly seven windmills in total, went along around the lake then should be able to see all the windmills. Is like no kidding, almost everybody is holding an umbrella.
 *************************************************************************
他們有7個大的風車跟兩個小的風車,從入口處看去應該不會很大,很快就應該看完了。 所以我在沒有撐傘的情況下拍照去了(況且拿著一把傘,怎麼拍照啊?)

✈8
I start from the right, first to introduce name of the lake is called Swan Lake, then in front of it is Minion windmill... Seriously, don't even think of to get pictures without anybody inside, because the crowds everybody this is busy stand besides the windmill and ready to pose and have a picture with it, like this one, I only can shoot it from the side, because groups and groups of people were there standby to grab a picture with it.
 *************************************************************************
從右邊出發,第一個看到的小黃人的風車,也是最多一家大小在排隊拍照的一個風車,所以要捕捉到沒有人在裡面的照片,還真的很考技術跟速度。 想要拍個正面的? 那就想都別想,所以只好由斜面來拍。 而且同時還可以拍到湖的名字,原來它叫“天鵝湖”啊!

✈9
The Bembridge Windmill ~ The Bembridge Windmill is the only surviving windmill on the Isle of Wight. Built in around 1700, it last operated in 1913 but still has most of its original machinery intact.

✈10
The lake looks like kind of small, but when you start walking is like...where's the end of it, why is it not there yet... and here's the starting, more to go...
 *************************************************************************
我的以為很小的概念完全是個錯誤,走著走著我真的有點覺得自己是自討苦吃。。。還不走快點。。。又熱又多人。。。這才是剛剛才開始啊!

✈11
The Molen Windmill ~ Since its opening in 2003, the Molen Windmill has been a huge Foxton attraction and very much part of the Foxton community. The windmill was built and is still managed by volunteers from within the Foxton community and it is run by a charitable trust organisation.

✈12
They've a signboard beside the windmill stated the name and history of the windmill (Since I was there in a rush time so I took picture of all the signboards then read all back home, actually that's pretty great. At least I'm not just having the photos of them but also know what they are)  Meanwhile on the ground, they did put a sticker of the next windmill, pretty cool ya! 
 *************************************************************************
舉辦當局還很有心思的在地上貼上了下一個風車名字的貼子,有點像尋寶的感覺。 而且每一個大風車都有它們的名字跟來歷,由於當時我只是拍照罷了,所以我都通通拍回家才慢慢閱讀。

✈13
The Elphin Windmill ~ The Elphin Windmill is the only fully restored windmill in the west of Ireland. The Elphin Windmill was originally used for grinding corn and other grains. Now, it  houses a visitor center where the workings of the windmills are interpreted and demonstrated.

✈14
✈15
I thought this windmill festival is only about the windmill. Nope, I was wrong, it's about Eco World property, so some people are here to see the showing house. But I didn't follow the crowds...I was there truly to see the windmills, don't get distracted.
 *************************************************************************
最初我還真的以為這個只是一個風車展,但原來是地產商舉辦的,所以途中有幾間示範屋讓你進去欣賞,及開放給大眾購買。 但價格多少我是不知道也沒有進一步了解,因為實在太熱了,加上進去看示範屋也要排個長龍,我還是先走為快!

✈16
The Rottingdeam Windmill ~ The Rottingdean Windmill is believed to have been erected on Beacon Hill in 1802. The carved initials - TB, which stands for Thomas Beard, who is the owner of the windmill - can be seen on one of the original internal timbers.

✈17
✈18
✈19
The Fabyan Windmill ~ The 68-foot, 5-storey Fabyan Windmill was originally built by Louis Blackhaus, a German craftsman, between 1850 and 1860. The Windmill originally stood on a site in what is now Lombard, Illinois.

✈20
Another Minion Windmill, don't why they don't want to put them side by side, this one like so far away from the first one. Is like being abandoned here so pity...(just only my thoughts and imaginations, okay!)
 *************************************************************************
又是另外一個小黃人的風車,但是這個是壞的小黃人。 但我好奇的是怎麼他們不把兩個都放在一起呢? 而是把一個放得那麼遠,這讓他看起來有點落寞呢!

✈21
Small and big little windmills were placed on both side of the road, I saw lots of people took it out take pictures and never put it back on. As adult doing so, the children did the same thing as well. Nearby the entrance there has an keep ongoing announcement said that please don't take it, if everybody takes it then there're nothing left for the late comers. Which is true, right? But why people kept on doing it and holding it to walk like nobody business??
 *************************************************************************
一路上的草地旁都插有大小不同的風車,我看到很多小朋友拔上來玩然後拿著就走,而且不只小孩,大人也是一樣。 問題是舉辦當局的廣播器一直播放說“請大家不要把小風車放回原位,不要把他們帶走,這樣下一個人才能夠看同樣的景色啊! 但是有誰管你呢??

✈22
✈23
✈24
✈25
  
✈26
The Swan Windmill ~ De Zwaan is a Dutch windmill in the city of Holland, Michigan. The windmill's name is Dutch for the The Swan, and it is the only authentic, working Dutch windmill in the United States.

✈27
The West Kingsdown ~ The West Kingsdown Windmill was built in the 1800s, and moved from Farningham in 1880. Today, most of its machinery are still intact, although not in working conditions.

✈28
✈29
I'm pretty impress with their reused stuffs here, what a great imagination that reused it and create something very useful and nice. Unfortunately some got broken, is that it wouldn't last long or people didn't take well care of it?
 *************************************************************************
好特別的設計概念,廢物就是要這樣利用,不但有用處而且還可以美化環境,但是有一些就壞了,好奇的是他們都不怎麼耐用還是用的人太粗魯了呢??

✈30
Finally is time to go. Back to where we have been dropped by just now, there's free shuttle bus carry you back in front of your car. Didn't take that long to queue, because the shuttle bus is not those small one but is those big long bus.
 *************************************************************************
任務完畢,我媽媽終於等到我回去找她了,她是迫不及待的要回家去,還好舉辦當局有這個免費轉搭巴士,好讓我們不用走遠路,因為巴士都會將我們每一個載到車子的前面停車哦!

  1. hahaha, so you usually only choose to hang out on either one day during the weekend?? good also for a balance, one day fully exhaust yourself, one day fully recharge yourself at home to welcome a new week of work.. :)

    awww, didn't hear about this windmill exhibition.. looks nice to see something different and we don't often see.. I've not seen a real windmill before, guess these mini ones are good to let us learn about the different kinds of windmills in different places.. too bad your mum was too tired, hehe!! :)
