"Kampung is in Sabah. I have two kampung(s) - about an hour drive away from each other. Tambunan and Keningau. I love the fact that it is truly your typical kampung feel - both my grandparents' homes - it is the epitome of the au naturel kampung feel. Both homes are on stilts and we have a fireplace to cook food while the chickens, ducks, dogs, cats and even the little piglets roam freely around the compound."
"The Tambunan home overlooks our own paddy fields and as for the Keningau Kampung house, there's a little trail through the rubber trees that leads us to our family dusun (fruit orchard). And at the opposite spectrum, there's a river where I learnt how to swim. Tales of toyols and other spiritual things kept my cousins and I frightfully entertained when I was growing up. There's also a corner shop that sold the best cheapest biscuits in the world - one was yellowish in colour, the other brown and coconut-ish. Can't recall the name, but it's so hard to find it over here in Peninsular Malaysia."
"And of course, kampung is where the kindest, warmest folks are - my family and relatives. Need I say more?"
