In an idyllic setting that exudes kampung-chic, Annice meets the locals and listens to the stories surrounding their culture, and the importance of preserving traditions to last for generations to come.
Just ten minutes away, another reinvigorated building awaits: the 112-year-old Sentul Depot was, for a time, one of the largest railway engineering workshops in the world, housing the most advanced locomotives and railway carriages. Today, engineering of a different kind happens within its walls, as creators from all over Malaysia display their wares at weekend makers’ markets.
“As a visual storyteller, I believe that photography is a tool that allows me to capture the present and preserve the past. I’m glad that these historical sites are given the appreciation they deserve, and the community is able to breathe new life and purpose into these century-old buildings.”
As Annice makes her way back to the Cayenne, she closes with gratitude. “This place gives me a sense of belonging and a strong connection to it. I worked here for more than three years, and it feels like coming back home to me.”
