My own dreamland

But has been composed of
All my encounters, experiences, appreciations and trials

A unique scene in Melaka river, the houses along the river has no back lane, instead they have “back river” there is no road access to the backdoor of houses here, they can only access them by river, carriage boats is hired to deliver goods from backdoor.
