Tasik Biru, Bau

Tasik Biru (blue lake), used to be a gold mine here.

Short history:
The gold mining activity here ended in 1921.
In early 1990s, the mining activity started again;
somehow sinkholes began to show up here and there, around Bau town.
After sometime, they decide to shut down the mining for the 2nd time.
Now, we got back our lake, sadly it is still not as beautiful or as blue as it used to be.
