Galeria Time Tunnel 2

5 August 2013


Galeria Time Tunnel Part 2. Brinchang, Cameron Highlands, Malaysia.

Photos in part 2 portrayed lifestyles of our past generation. From the barber shop, a hawker stall, kopitiam and the interior of a home, to little items that were widely used in that generation.


The coffee shop was the most epic of all. The little eatery includes vintage cups, utensils, stools... the list is endless, especially the yellowing adverts on the walls. We took a glimpse into how our grandparents and our parents lived in the past years. It was before fluorescent lamp became widely accessible and truly affordable. Kerosene lamps were used instead as a lighting tool.


My parents were feeling nostalgic because this place really reflected how they lived and grew up. And they were saying how things changed tremendously and none of those items or the ambience remain in our lifestyles now. It took just thirty to forty years to change.

And so I thought, what will the world look like thirty years later? I understand that we'll have to change to adapt to the whole technology and development thingy but somehow I wish something can be kept and remained instead of only seeing them in a museum. It could either be an item, a taste or a place.

不过是几十年的光景,人们的生活就有如此大的变化,如今身在都市的我,生活中已经没有一丝那个年代的痕迹。我听着老爸老妈形容他们小时候的生活,叙述他们那个年代的回忆。他们说想当年他们就是这样过日子,展览当中很多东西现在都已经找不到啦。

我打了个冷颤,也许我想太多,也许我念旧。你想象一下,二三十年后的世界会是怎样?也许我们现在所有的东西都会完全被时间科技淘汰得无影无踪。其实,我希望无论世界如何变,有一些东西、一些味道、一些地方会依然保留着。
