    There is a combination of old and new. There is progress after all. The older part of this town is nostalgic.


    We hardly see old signboards like these in the modern metropolis we live in.


    There so many tailor stalls like these on the first floor of the wet market.


    Bell bottoms


    1970s fashion


    There are many Clan Associations. I'll post the pictures later.

    We can still see such old building, old signboard, etc. in most smaller towns like Malacca.

    The interesting part about urbanization in this country is – with less than 1 hour drive from KL, you will enter a totally different world with completely different “scenery” compare with your urban neighborhood...

    No need to go far to Bentong, can find many of such “scenery” in Kelang also.

    This old Raleigh bicycle as shown in this picture means a lot to me. It is the mode of transport for my father to go to work and for me to go to school..

    When I did renovation for my parents’ house, I asked the contractor to make a “hanger” at the outer wall of the kitchen to hang this old bicycle.
