Simple Life at Kampung Air, Sandakan

I was in Sandakan yesterday for official matters..and two hours before departure, we headed to Kampung Air, Sim Sim in Sandakan not far from Swiss Inn Hotel

I'm still tired and lazy..just photo blogging today..

Kampung Air or floating village is a unique culture in Sabah, where houses were built on stilt using kayu bakau with concrete stump and timber panel for the wall..and their toilets are au naturel..enough said..

Small girl playing at the verandah..and Astro dish complete the picture..:-))..some houses have more than five..yes..5..!!

Empty lot ..if you need tobuilt one, there'll be proper procedure to follow to obtain the approval from local authority.

Simple life..simple tools for survival..jala ikan


Some will go extra mile..not so simple life..

Look at the chanderlier..and colour..and the sofa..and the carpet..and all thing Vantage...hmmm..this is inside one of the house, it looks like any other landed house..clever..except the whole concept

Cushion cover with bling bling on red sofa..talking about personal touch..move over Eric Leong..

..and here come their corner decoration.. I won't say much..its up to individual..
Compared to other houses here, this is the most outstanding and lavish interior..rumah tauke soto

Orchids and other potted plants hanging and swaying...Some of them have an initiative and enough money to decorate their verandah

At the end of the walkway, buut maybe by next year, there'll be more houses blocking this vista towards the island

I like the vibrant colours of the houses..maybe the local government should support them by providing different paint for these houses..each will have their own character..and it'll be great for tourism..or at least in a photographs..:-))
