Down memory lane…
Grandpa last lived there in 1994. Eversince, nobody have lived there. And over the years, we heard that some of the houses were torn down to make way for new housing projects.
After more than a decade….we revisited the spot today.
I was expecting to see a dilapidated house…but was in for a shock! :0
I recall the kampung house was very very VERY cooling! Air-Cond anyone? There was a natural one there 🙂
Generator operated lamps once upon a time. If my memory serves me right, way beyond that they had oil-lamps even!
Mosquito coils and nettings 🙂
There was once around Deepavali time we (with siblings and cousins) played fireworks in the house compound. And the last time we stayed there was after grandpa’s demise…till the 16th day prayers, my longest stay there, no doubt.
This time, I left with some souvenier. Mosquito bites :p
Mom would have had an even greater ‘memory jog’, excitedly showing us around – ‘where what was, once upon a time!’ 😀 Memories…
