Nostalgic Malaysia 1992 – Tasik Cina

In 1992 we made a road trip to the east coast of Malaysia with my parents who were visiting. We made a small diverions off the main road to visit a fascinating lake called Tasik Cina (China Lake). To get to the lake we had to take a small canoe up a very narrow river but once we reached the lake it was a beautiful and extensive lake covered with reeds and lilies. During our visit we saw the local fishermen in their canoes and had the opportunity to visit a local village comprising very basic wooden houses. During this visit to the village we were introduced to their way of life of hunting and fishing and we even got to try a blowpipe.

These photos were captured on a Canon film camera and the negatives subsequently scanned and then post processed in Capture One Pro. The image quality in many cases is poor as many of the negatives were damaged by heat and humidity over time.
