    At first, I thought it was taken in my country. Well, SEAsian countries have many geographical things in common,

    I think I already said, I’m packed and ready? You’re definitely convincing me. it’s beautiful. 🙂

      I plan on writing more about the island and the rest of the trip soon. there are many places in Malaysia that I would suggest.

  7. Very picturesque. More like a well crafted oil painting..

  8. I am scared of anything on stilts. I would never venture into one those houses in the back ground. I would think it would come crashing down if I entered it.
    Many years ago in school we used to have open air stages built on stills like this. I would not go up even to receive a prize. I would feign sickness and keep away from the program.

    • TBM says:

      This was the first time I’ve ever seen houses on stilts up close. I found them interesting, but on a stormy day I’m not sure I would feel safe.

    How interesting!
    It would be unnerving for me to have to live over the water like that on stilts.

  10. i think there might be an opening for you as a national geographic photographer. amazing!

  11. Asia has so many beauties. And you captured one of them perfectly! Im thrilled like a little child about goin back this month!
