One of the old buildings still standing proud in laid-back Muar...
A week before the past Mother's Day, I visited my lovely home town of Muar in the southern Malaysian state of Johor. But only this particular time that I got a shock when I crossed the Muar bridge - I was so shocked and surprised that famous Muar river has lost its charm! The water seems overly polluted, and gone is its vibrant greenish tone. All I could see now is a BROWN river! How sad! But luckily,.
one thing has not changed at all - the aura of this laid-back town. It's still very much alive... probably from the well-maintained old, colonial buildings that still exist there.
Anyway, most of my nephews and nieces were back at the family home on that vary weekend, too. What I soothed me was, they were really enjoying every moment they had at the kampung. Little Sofea was so conscious of the surroundings... Playing with her in the morning sun just gave me the inspiration for some upcoming paintings!
