Bentong, a place where my parents were born and raised, and a place filled with my childhood memories. During Chinese New Year it's a tradition for our family to visit our relatives and friends there. After visiting a few families, we came to this temple to see my father's cousin, and found that the whole setting is perfect for a photoshoot. Read another post about Bentong here.

It's hard to imagine how my parents lived when they were young, poor and when lives were simple, when there were no electricity, water supply and sewage system. It's even harder to imagine how our ancestors landed on this place, struggled to live, fought with the Japanese and developed the whole township.  How our lifestyle has changed over just one our two generations! This land, is full of untold stories and memories that are way more interesting than the dramas.

今年新年回到来文冬这里,多了一份感慨。长辈们提起过去,讲述当时我们的先辈如何从中国过来、与日本兵抗战以及他们小时候如何穷酸简朴地过活。每一个老人家都充满了比连续剧还动人的故事。看着他们一年年老去,我无法想象这个看似平淡纯朴的小镇,装载了多少人的青春、辛酸和回忆。
