Ng. Sebilat


This concrete path leads to Rh.Sinau of Ng.Sebilat. The drains beside the foot path really catches my eyes. It's really an innovative way of utilizing materials that are found locally. River stones are easily found in Sungei Gaat, ie during the dry season.
By lining the drains with stones, erosion was prevented. Not only that, the foot path will be less slippery when it rains.

Rh.Sinau is situated on a high level. On the right of the pic, a cement foot path was once constructed but now it was broken due to the great flood of December 2007.
A wooden ladder was latter constructed (middle of the pic) so that the inhibants of this long house could have access to their boats (which is the only mean of transportation).
