An old bus in tiny Rengam town

A semi-rusted town bus in what could be a bus graveyard in tiny Renggam town. Inspired by the earlier post about urban sketchers, I decided to run this small town image through some art and paint filters.

I am disturbed by the appearance of the face of a woman wearing a white tudung on the wet asphalt on the bottom of pic. Do you see it?

Renggam: The Time Travel Town

I like exploring small towns. From Simpang Renggam town where I was staying, I drove to Renggam town which was even smaller. It is located between Kluang and Layang Layang on the secondary inner back roads of Southern Johor.

Many parts of the tiny town are preserved in its original form, untouched by development. The facade of the Hainanese Association is pristine and beautiful. It was like stepping into a time travel machine.

SR Inn, Simpang Renggam

Now to introduce a local small town hotel. I had a photography assignment in tiny Simpang Renggam town in Johor at one time and I stayed at a small budget hotel. The town is as small as one can get.

The other alternative was to stay in Kluang and take a daily half hour drive each way. It is not the only act in town but I am happy with SR Inn for several reasons. It is centrally located in the middle of town though don't expect any action or entertainment after 8pm.
