A Malaysian hobbyist has been making waves with her creative and amazing talent: to recreate super adorable miniature local snacks that with punch nostalgia right in the guts.
Her realistic doll-sized Chinese ‘kedai-runcit’ creation was so amazing that it has gotten her tons of attention especially with international news portals like Mashable featuring her in one of their articles as well.
Stocked full with miniature sweets and snacks, artist Lim Pui Wan spares no detail, and even furnishes her little shop with old-timey electricity sockets, toy capsule machines and those tin biscuits we used to love so much!
Lim, or @picoworm on Instagram, has been creating these adorable pieces since 2014. She makes all her food out of air dry clay, and paints them with acrylic paint.
One of her caption writes, “A dollhouse I’ve spent a long time to make in 2014. It was made based on my childhood memories and I hope it was yours too.”
Her dedication has resulted in a beautifully realistic masterpiece, and one can only gasp in awe at the amount of detail she puts.
Tora, Ding Dang and Teddy Chocolate Biscuits?? Talk about a nostalgic throwback!
She even made mini candies all 80’s and 90’s kids will definitely remember. Sugus, Rabbit candy, and bubblegum.
Her Instagram account is also a wonderland of all things cute, for she even creates miniature versions of all our favourite quintessentially South East Asian snacks. Check it out!
