The Old Jetty In Tanjung Sepat, 10 Years Ago.

Love the power of social media networking. My long time Instagram follower @jaschintaz sent me an old pic of her wedding day at the old jetty in Tanjung Sepat, 10 years ago! What a sweet couple, weren’t they? Her husband CS is a native of the town. If you remember, I mentioned that the old jetty collapsed. See how charming the old jetty was albeit being quite rickety then. Thanks Jas for sharing. Now my story about the new and old jetties is complete. See my earlier post about the new jetty titled “Time And Tide Wait For No Man Or Woman”.

Time And Tide Wait For No Man or Woman

Time And Tide Wait For No Man or Woman.

At the seaside of Tanjung Sepat, the rustic old wooden jetty was gone, to my surprise and disappointment.

It is being replaced by a 300m long, RM 3.2 million modern pier jutting out into the Straits Of Malacca. It had little character from a photographer’s standpoint. It was reported that the frail old wooden one collapsed. I did feel nervous when I walked on it previously.

Time and tide wait for no man or woman with a camera. I suppose progress, change and modernization are inevitable. There may be dark clouds ahead though, both metaphorically and visually as captured with irony by this pic. I think the gloomy sky represents sadness too.

I was told that the home grown industry is on the decline. As with many small towns, many youths left their hometown to seek better prospects elsewhere. No one can stop the march of time.
