More from Pulau Ketam prt3. I liked it a lot out there. And after working on these shots; and since my ‘buffer of astonishment’ is uploaded into my working memory, I know why: This village feels grown. Not designed in some kind of masterplan. The houses are ‘individuals’; like the people who live in them. If I want to change something on the outside of my house, I need permission and it should be done according the rules. If I want something different, I won’t get a building license. In this village you just get yourself some wood; metal and paint and do it. If you want new colours on your house, just do it. And if things are getting too old, they just die. I think this village resonated with my desire for freedom and simple. organic life. But if you desire something, you don’t have it… Maybe I should delete certain parts of my working memory… 😉

    Looking at these pictures and at these children, I think this must be a very nice place to spend your childhood.

    • I have not seen shy or unhappy kids out there. I think it’s better to grow up in a colourful, but not so luxurious village like this, than being driven to a McDonalds in a SUV all the time..
