I took these kampung (village) houses when I was visiting Muara Tebas and Kampung Buntal. Kampung houses were mostly built of wood and on stilts. It reminds me of my grandfather’s house in Miri. Our old house were built on high stilts because in the 70s there was no proper drainage system and it used to flood at our place (Tanjung Lubang). When grandpa had the money he made ‘extension’ on the ground floor to fit all 30+ grandchildren and a couple dozens more adults. And we still had fun when it floods 😉
