Tradition Blending In with Modernization
This traditional house, known as kampung in Malay language, is one of the famous kampung that exist in the midst of Malaysia's bustling capital, Kuala Lumpur.
Many cannot fathom how a structure from olden times can still survive today and yet, here it is still beautifully preserved by the Malaysian Tourism Bureau. This structure serves to tell us, the younger generation that despite being different, tradition can still co-exist with modernization beautifully.
