Old Well

Technorati Profile

How many of us actually have seen a real well? Hey, I am talking about an old well har? I drop by at Taiping when I were on the way to Bidor 2 weeks ago. This well is already more than 100 years old. Don't believe me? My grandmother pass away 3 years ago at the age of 104 and by now if she still alive she will be 107. Now, don't you believe me that this well is already more than 100 years old. Nearby, this area were a mining last time and what do you think it had at the bottom of this well? Yes, bijih timah (tin)!!! Many many years ago when my uncles went down to wash this well they have dig out some tin.

Now, they don't used it anymore to consume. Just used it do some watering of plants only. Btw, this well never dry up before har. Never!!! When, I were small I were thought on how to take water from the well. It's not easy ok? There is a way to do it and I can still do it today.

Honestly, I am very proud to be a Perakian. Even though I am married to a Penangnite but I never fail to tell people that I am a Perakian. I am so proud of my state, my Sultan, my people and my hometown. You can find out more about Perak at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perak
