|For those in their 50's and living in Sibu you can see the tremendous development in the Malay kampong area. This year Kampong Hilir is beginning to see lots of changes in terms of demolition of old wooden houses and the construction of shops.|
After 50 years of Malaysia the b eloved kampong is moving away!!
Perhaps only memories and good old photos will be left those who can remember Kampong Hilir.
In a kampong there no fence between houses.
"Most houses are not locked when owners go shopping because there would be eyes every where " I was told this sometime by a friend from a kampong.
|Kampong houses get so congested that little attachments like these are built and some just touch the roadsides....|
|During the fasting months beautiful lights would be placed on home made ledges all the way (on both sides) to the house from the main road. It was a lovely sight.|
