A *new village viewed from my balcony

* New Villages represent a type of settlement that is unique to Peninsular Malaysia. They were originally established by the government as roadside relocation settlements for rural Chinese during the Malayan Emergency (1948–60), a period of intense conflict between the British administration and a (largely Chinese) communist guerrilla insurgency that arose after World War II. With the end of the emergency in 1960, some of the New Villages were abandoned, but most of them became permanent settlements.

I loved all the photos, great:-)

Beautiful photos that illustrate moments of life.
An interesting information about the new village.
I like the photo the most with the road and the white clouds that seem to go in the opposite direction. I see the image of a polar bear raised on its hind paws in the middle of the clouds. 😊
I like the comparison about bees and words.
I wish you beautiful days, Veronica.

Dear Veronica, this is a nice colorful mix of random photos :-)
I learned something about new villages and an interesting definition of beauty. (For me, "Beauty" and "Highway" rarely appear in one sentence ;-))))))

I love to visit other places in the world and see what is going on there.

Dragon fruit! So pretty--and alarming!

Hena Tayeb said...

nic said...

I'm hungry now, lol. Have a great week, Veronica.

Sandee said...

Yummy on the food and I want some of that pan fried salmon. What a unique way to prepare salmon.

Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

The photos remind my mom of all the time she spent in different Asian countries as a flight attendant.

Tom said...

...your gallimaufry is a colorful and exciting collection, thanks!

Phil Slade said...

Dragon fruit looks very interesting. i wonder what it tastes like, I need to Google. Crispy salmon I would like but shell fish does not agree with my wife and I and can make us ill. We do eat prawns though with no ill effect.

Suzana said...

I like your random collection!
I wait to find that dragon fruit. It's very pleasant.
And the image with the highway and clouds is quite spectacular.
Thank you for this set, Veronica!

Happy WW!
