Rent books, rent a disc, rent a pet, rent a car, rent home … In addition to the people basically nothing can not be rented in my dictionary. I has no idea that Phuket island give me a big surprise, you are able to rent a “wife” here. The world is too wonderful, I am to blame for lacking knowledge and experience.
“Rent wife” is very common in Thailand, many foreigners arriving on Thailand will find the pretty local black girl in their minds as a temporary wife, the girls are also called “black pearls.”
Most of temporary “wife” are very young girls. The girl not only fulfill in her obligations as a wife, but also moonlight as a tourist guide. A foreigner provide all expenses such as accommodation, food, drink, play, music and so on.
These girl’s family are not rich. These girl have no alternative but to work their way up. They study english and learn how to flatter a man, particularly the old man. Each girl learn to deal with among a few men so as to seek a “husband” who want to take her as a wife.
Some foreigners are very fond of local “wives”, they live with their “hire wife” for several months every year. Some foreigners supply their “rent wife” with some living expenses every month, even after returning home. even for them to buy a house, buy a car, give birth to and raise children in Thailand.
As a “rent wife”, If the girl is lucky enough, her “husband” would change her from “rent wife” to wife and take her to go abroad for a rich life.
These young girls are really not easy, they calmly accept the repeated “marriage”and parting, I don’t know how much joy and happiness still exist behind their big sunny smiles.
Originally temporary marriage contract base on the interest relationship can also breed love, perhaps this is the unique reason for the “rent wife” culture existence.
Kuala Lumpur is just passing through, We are going now to Kota Kinabalu. In one day, we hurry through, but we see many Kuala Lumpur feeling.
The night covers up all dirty, this Kuala Lumpur night scene, the most beautiful, Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Towers echoes the Kuala Lumpur Tower at a distance.
We first go to the National Art Museum of Malaysia, here you can see Malaysian history. But the pink building is not the National Art Museum, it is the World Museum of Ethnology.
At the National Art Museum, in addition to a variety of historical exhibits, There are many contemporary exhibits, as well. These images and brief descriptions about F1, I think it has Malaysia’s feature.
I see the most interesting exhibits in the National Art Museum. Malaysia’s red song lyric books, there are Lenin’s books about socialism and religion.
National Mosque was built in 1965, the chapel can accommodate 8,000 people, not Muslim, will not be admitted.
The view in Natlonal Mosque corridor. Many ancient buildings are inundated with tall buildings. Although I can not find the feeling of the past, but it much better than demolished.. Actually, on the streets of Kuala Lumpur, the century-old buildings are enormous.
The Malaysia Railway Bureau Office Building, was built in 1917, architectural styles are jumbled together.
Outside the arche of the Malaysia Railway Bureau Office Building is the old railway station in Kuala Lumpur, was built in 1910. Today, it is not used as a railway station, second floor is a hotel.
Sultan Abdul Samad Building was built in 1894. It is 137 meters in length. This is one of the landmark buildings in Kuala Lumpur, now it is the High Court.
Outside Sultan Abdul Samad Building, a beautiful Malaysian girl is playing her mobile phone and walking.
The Textile Museum was built in 1905, my personal view that this is the most beautiful building in Kuala Lumpur.
The independence square. This is the world’s tallest flagpole, it is 100 meters high.
Under the flagpole, former cricket venue have became green fields. Red building is the Royal Selangor Club.
Masjid Jame was built in 1909. It is the oldest mosque in Kuala Lumpur. Headscarf is a common offering by Masjid Jame to female tourists. Is the headscarf beautiful?
Under high-rise buildings, how will you find the white mosque? Surrounded by modern life, the people’s beliefs perhaps just like the white mosque, it is too difficult for the people’s beliefs living, the people’s beliefs become harder to find.
What is that building? I forget…
A light rail trains is crossing the heavily built-up downtown, this is Malaysia, this is Kuala Lumpur.
Kuala Lumpur night belongs to Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Towers. At which point you observe that you can see the Twin Tower buildings. In the night, it stands out even more than usual apartment building.
Various angles, the different sides of the Twin Tower buildings.
The artificial lake is located in front of the hotel where I live, a gentle breeze, the Twin Tower buildings are beginning to wrinkle.
Titiwangsa Lake Garden is located north of the urban district. Here is very busy, many locals have fun here and relax, the children are playing in the garden. Quiet lake with the Twin Tower buildings upside down in it, a fresh breeze puff across the lake.
There are no travellers here, most of them are locals. Everybody here, drive their own car… This is a very large park, we are here and shoot the Twin Tower buildings from all angles.
For a moment, the weather clear up a little, we can see the distant hills.
Kayak training, the background of the Twin Tower buildings, it is really cool, too.
