Another typical Chinese wooden house at Mambang Diawan Village that built several decade ago.
A lots of red decoration items are hanging on the facade during Chinese New Year. They hanging their wet clothes in front of the window too. Manggo tree, jackfruit tree and some flowers are growing in front of their house too.
The little doors are open toward outside while the big doors are open toward inside. The little door that only cover up half of the entrance is close while the people are not in their hall (for example while they are cooking and washing in kitchen or at the back side of house) to avoid the chickens, dogs and some other herds go inside their house.
The dog is barking, I'm affraid and just shoot a photo then quickly go back to the car.

I have not seen any of your photos recently. I am happy that I was logged onto TE when this exotic photo rolled in. I am glad you got back in the car before the dog attacked... Interesting note.
It is 10:45 pm Sunday, 10 March in the East Coast of the United States. I believe it is the morning of Monday, 11 March.

it is hard to live in such a house but perhaps people are there happy. Nice composition with the dog on FG. Good presentation from village.
Have a nice week.

The trees are framing well the house. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the house. The loght has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

We still have a few families living in this setting around my hometown. This shot is well balanced with the guard dog and a little garden in the foreground. Lovely tonal work and thanks for sharing.

A superb tropical scene of the Chinese village surrounded by lush vegetation and fruit trees. The dog at left animates the scene. Good sharpness and realistic colour and saturation. Terıma kasıh!

A magnificent composition, which shows in a flawless POV, the charm of this home with the quaintness of the area, very interesting note to understand many of the things we see in the image.
Ideal as these trees and plants frame the main subject.
Very good lighting and sharpness.
Enjoy a good day.

nice the view of this village house with the trees and the bushes to decorate a bit the whole place.The hanging clothes and the dog outside of it makes the image more effective.

A good record shot of the old house showing its rustic qualities but I like the effect you have created the fact that it does look lively. We can make out how the actual current situation there and the reality, I think we can easily spend hours in there looking at everything and lot of clutter and so many little details to pick out. Nevertheless I like the true atmosphere and character there. Good photo journalism. Well done, Congrats

So many great details there:)! Visiting China during the New Year's Celebrations is a great experience and I can see you have lots of good opportunities in Malaysia also! I like the composition with the dog in foreground and then the humble house, so well decorated for the celebrations. I'm glad you had time to take the photo:)!

This is a rather simple, but very colorful and attractive wooden house. Excellent presentation of Chinese traditional architecture and daily-life style!
