Simple Life of Kampung Kids

Kampung means Village in English. Have you ever been to one before? Kampung can be found in Asia such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, Cambodia, Thailand and in Singapore, there is only one or two areas which is still in a kampung condition. The rest of the areas in Singapore have been upgraded and modernised with high rise hdb flats.

Do you know what I love most about living in Kampung?


It’s the nature, simple, laid back and fuss free life one can have. It’s about appreciating what you have. As a city girl, I find solace when I stay over at my cousins place and watching these kids having their great time never fails to make me smile from deep within.

These photos of my cousins with their relatives and friends were taken back in December 2014. Look at how the kids rely on the simple resources around them to have fun and nothing can stop them. Well, except a few years later when they found a big snake in that river. More on that in other post… For now, I hope you’re smiling while looking at the photos and video.

Here’s a video for you. Seriously, they are truly happy to entertain my request and here I am, happily watching them splash around as I hold my niece.

Gosh, now I feel like transporting back to kampung. I hope you like this post!

She enjoys learning and growing in every way possible. To stop & breathe, she’d go swimming. To ease her mind & soul, she seeks the beach where the sea comes running & hitting the shores & the wind can just dance on the surface of the Earth. To relax her body, she’ll dance to the beat of the musics played from her own list. No, she’s not a clubber. But a home clubber where she can just dance her heart out! Bowling is what she would do every week if possible. Oh, she just love it. N no, she has never break her bones carrying the bowl.. ^_^ All her life, she speaks in her mind. N they’re always debating. The good versus evil, they say. But it’s what that keeps her wiser each time for she thinks n listens to the small voice inside her before taking any actions.

And most importantly, this web is to serve as a motivation for anyone and everyone to travel even with a tight budget.
