Sights and sounds of a neighbourhood August 28, 2008Posted by asianpixmen in Activities, Culture, Malaysia, People, Places.
We always hear mature parents tellings relatives and friends nowadays that children these days are so lucky. They have their shopping complexes, games outlets, PS3, X-Boxes and other modern facilities that boggle the minds of their out-of-date parents.
Yeap! They are lucky all right. Back in those susah old days, we have only drains, coconut trees and big drains to while our time away. The above pictures give you an idea of what it was like 30 years ago when things were not so sophisticated.
Actually, on hindsight, I am beginning to wonder who are actually the lucky ones. That link or communion with Mother Nature has been severed a long time ago. One day when you are 80 years old, you will find that there’s a whole new meaning to “the best things in life are free.”
