Ending Thoughts
During my visit, there was one lady curator and no one else. The guestbook showed few visitors mostly Malaysians from Kuala Lumpur. I think they need to put a spotlight on this.

This visit gave me a sense of the culture and lifestyle of the East coast Malay communities and the aboriginal people. The family remains the basic unit of society and their existence is in compliance to the laws of nature. In this Zeitgeist of fast-paced technological obsolence, there is much to learn from their customs and traditions.
