Essence of Chinatown (_DSC1168)

    Newer Older

    The Terengganu state government is going to turn Kuala Terengganu into a waterfront city soon. The master plan for the Shah Bandar area is being finalised and is likely to be shown to the public later this month. "The state government will then call all stakeholders to respond," a conservationist, who declined to be named, said.

    Under the plan, Masjid Putih (Zainal Abidin) will be rehabilitated and more public places and boardwalks culminating in Kampung Cina and Pasar Payang will be created, she said. While new public plazas will take on Islamic designs, the Chinese theme in Kampung Cina will be preserved, she said.

    "There are proposals to build shop houses on stilts or on some reclaimed land in Kampung Cina. These shop houses will be fronting the sea and will be similar in design to the old shop houses that have the back facing the sea," said the source, adding that houses with illegal extensions will have to be demolished.

    Points to ponder:
    The "guitar:guitarist, hence, camera:photographer" metaphor is a bit off IMO. Being a photographer is more like being a composer. You create new works, rather than simply playing/interpreting works written by others.

      Shutterhack- You are a master with both words and imagery. I love this for the "essence of dusk" (or light after dawn or storm) coinciding with the presence of both Chinatown and the water. For you, it's a canvas, and the camera is merely a brush, point taken.
      You are My WINNER!!!

      I love the amount of water in the foreground and the colors in the photo looks like colors found in a fine piece of natural stone jewelry... very heavy...
