My lovely hometown, Kampung Sauk is a small village located in Kuala Kangsar, the state of Perak Darul Ridzuan. "Kampung" means village in Malaysian. By taking an express bus from our capital city, Kuala Lumpur to the town of Kuala Kangsar will spend you about 3 hours journey if it's not a peak season.
My lovely hometown, Kampung Sauk is a small village located in Kuala Kangsar, the state of Perak Darul Ridzuan. “Kampung” means village in Malaysian. By taking an express bus from our capital city, Kuala Lumpur to the town of Kuala Kangsar will spend you about 3 hours journey if it’s not a peak season.
Meanwhile when you arrive in Kuala Kangsar town, you will have to take another 30 minutes public bus where it’s 100% no traffic jam along the highway to reach my kampung. Kampung Sauk is surrounded with the splendor of the rubber trees. My dad is working as a rubber tapper in kampung. He often took me to the rubber estate when I was in primary school. This Chinese New Year in February 2007 was a great time for me and my Lomo cameras. Let me tell you why! When I reached my kampung that time, I saw all those trees were looking like during the springtime in Alaska.
What was so dramatic about them is that all of the leaves were just dropping down onto the ground. Furthermore, the sky in Kampung Sauk is always blue instead of dull grey of our biggest city. You will never miss out the joyfulness with your cameras if you are a crazy Lomographer! Some of the trees were just left with leaves in “traffic light” (red, orange, green) colours. Even though there were not much leaves available to cover me from the hot sunlight that time, the environment was just comforting and of course relaxing me. No stress, no office jobs. Just pressing your camera release button everywhere, enjoying the fresh air. Also, you will never see the freshness and inspiring beauty near your office nowadays. During the month of June every year, Malaysia will have a season called a “Durian season”. That time, you will get the chance to taste durian in my kampung too.
