I was at a dentist's window in Kluang in a small town in West Malaysia. I saw these buildings, or the back of these buildings.
I couldn't believe my eyes. They looked like some of the buildings in my home town Sibu, in Borneo. I remember going to my friend's house along Ramin Way, and we used to go up and down in those narrow spiral stairs in the mid-1960s.
We had to do this in secret because it was a three storeys building. They were considered very tall building at that time. My friend's mum said men at the bottom of the stairs could look up and see our knickers.
These buildings must have been built at the same time, and never had a new white wash.
