Before the coming of electricity Oil lamp were use to light up the house at night. We live in a traditional Malay house raised about one meter above ground. Because of that the air circulate well into the house day and night keeping the house cool all the time. The ceiling were high and there is air outlet just above the window. At night we light up the Oil lamp to brighten the house and at time would play shadow game in front of the Oil lamp by using our figures to makes objects that shows on the wall nearby or on the floor, It fascinate us kids and at time we would make shadows of goat or other animals. It was fun. Today in the early morning as I was making my morning walk I saw shadows on the roads. It does remind me of those beautiful moment of my childhood. I then took a few images of those shadows and sharing it here for everyone to enjoy.
