“Telaga Air” in my direct translation means “water well”.  I visited this place only a handful of times in the past. When I visited the place again last week, the place has changed tremendously. Gone were the shanty huts where they sell drinks, snacks, local fruits. I was looking for, in particular, a factory where they processed jellyfish for export to Japan. They were all GONE!

Gone! Gone! Gone were all the old wooden factories and huts and being replaced by the ‘every-town-must-have’ waterfront. It’s sad to have old familiar places changed and developed into the modern concrete structure. Well, it’s all too familiar issue of today, heritage/tradition vs. modernisation/development/progress. 😐
