Still With The Old House (Fujian China)

Showing you a lil bit of the 'interior design' inside the old house (Belongs to my FIL grandfather family in the village)

Y old house
Stepping my foot inside the house.. the 1st thing I saw was this 'stage' up infront of me where I can see tables and chairs. This might be the dining area for the family.


Y old house
This is the right side view.. got stair case going up to the dining area..


Y old house
Left side... another staircase.. On the middle is an empty hall without any rooftop..


Y old house
View on the dining hall.. we were having our dinner here at that moment (They having dinner very early.. like 4 or 5pm!! T_T) You don't eat.. siap la..


Y old house
I love to see the hills view from this dining hall.. you can see it outside right on top of the rooftop ^_^..
The food was placed on the floor (On that stage).. Just open air like that T_T.. (Nasib baik tak de puppy dtg menjenguk T_T).. If your dish finish.. pandai2 lah digg from the pots.. ;-p.

But our table always full with foods!! We were treated with a 1st class service!! I am soo awed!!! Your bowl still full with rice.. they already preparing like 2-3 bowl of rice for you to eat.. can you handle that??? T_T


Y old house
Another view from the dining stage..


Y old house
This path will bring you to certain rooms in this house. I did not managed to take a photo on every room. Coz it's quite privacy I think..


Y old house
Photo taking from the dining stage.. Just want to show you the empty area on the middle..


Y old house
See...!?

The wedding is tomorrow... and they start preparing some of the dish with the old way style of cooking..

Y old house
They cook here.. some inside the old house kitchen.. where I can see all the chef was man (With a cigarette on their mouth T_T)

Talking about cigarette.. smoking.. it's their tradition to smoke.. I think for them.. If you are a man.. you must smoke!! T_T.. Their living hall inside the house is a place where they chit chat and smoke.. doesn't care there is a small child around or not.. the smoke is ON..

I can't take it at all.. to become a 2nd smoker in the house really2 disturb me.. I pity my son.. I got great headache and sometimes I felt my chest like having lung cancer already!! lol..

They don't smoke like normal smoking.. it's like smoky smoky on fire!!!!!!! T_T. Not only on the village but also in the town. Visiting some of relatives house in town and worse they have small living area and 5 to 6 guys are smoking and we almost faint.. The smell of their tobacco was so THRILL!!!

Back to the wedding preparation story..

Y old house
What on earth!!!! My MIL straight say.. Oh this.. I don't eat.. really cannot masuk!! lol..lol.. So do I.. never ever try this. I always see this at any of the temple's pond.. wondering why they eating this??


Y old house
Another dining hall outside the old house.. I guess the lady and kids will have their food here.. and the man will be inside the main hall..


Y old house
Photo of us having dinner at 1 of the room from the old house.. Hot inside.. you can see my face very2 oily ;-p.

BTW.. at the back of my seat was a skull of an animal T_T.. and flies here and there T_T.... (I pray in my heart before eating.. Thank God.. me and son never have any stomach problem during our stay there)

After having dinner.. We go for a walk..

Y old house
I witness so much of great plants (For me k..).. grows every where without need a lots of attention..


Y old house


Y old house
Pic tree.. awesome!!! Just pluck and eat (Wait... wash 1st.. ;-p)


Y old house
We pass by at 1 path and my MIL say.. hey! look at this....


Y old house
Halleluyahh!!!!! They even have grapes just at the side walk way.. and no body care about it!! For us.. it's a wow!!

This place is BLESSED!!

I love reading your trip to Fujian! I went back to my PIL's old house in GuangZhao too and tell you ah, it's 5 times teruk then where you are staying now ..... can you imagine they are using a baldi as toilet? No doors no nothing ....... I think your PIL moyang house is like a 5 star hotel already leh, kekekeke .....
