These days especially during holidays, my family and I would return back to the village to visit our grandparents but I'm just so sad to see it's condition now.
Back then, I used to ride a motorbike with my cousin and take a round around the village and sometimes we would ride the bike until the neighbourhood village. Along the narrow road to the next village we could see lots of cows and goats and we also sometimes bump into chameleon or other big-sized insects that were stuck on the branch of the trees.
And there was also lots of trees and they were so tall and big and really the houses around the village also were old and very classic just like the traditional old houses. However, I somehow feel disappointed with the changes that has happened in my village. The houses are all becoming much modern and they are putting lots of shiny stairs instead of having the old wooden stairs. There are also less cows and goats. I could not even see any monkeys walking along the street or hanging up on the trees.Some areas have also been cleared up for construction so there was less trees along the road.
Back then, it was so hard to look at the neighbours houses as the trees were too thick and if we wanted to walk there to buy some ice cubes or top up cards, we need to walk in a group because it was literally felt like we were walking in the woods. But now, we can already see the roof of the neighbours' houses and we can already see people go there without having to walk in a group anymore.
I honestly don't like the changes that are happening in my village. It's just so sad to see the village-y aura gone just like that. It really feels like a modern village now and believe me, nature was outnumbered this time :(
