Meng Huat is actually a keen photographer and he takes lots of pics. I have asked him to post some at Taiping Talk but despite asking him to do it for almost 10 years, he has not posted a single one. I think those people who are currently residing in Taiping are just not doing enough to promote this beautiful town to the world. I suppose it is people like you and I (now living elsewhere) who are able to see the beauty of this historical town.
A couple of years ago, I was invited by the MPT for a book launch at the Town Hall. The book was entitled "Taiping - Life & Soul" edited by Jamil Ahmad. That book cited Taiping Talk as part of its bibliography. During the launch, several announcements were made about how Taiping Talk has been promoting Taiping (and the book) to the world. Which means the MPT is well aware of this website but no one from MPT has ever posted here to help out in answering questions about Taiping.
