see where and how the PM used to live last century, meanwhile, it is a good example of Malaysian houses for a middle family living room, bedrooms, study room, kitchen, garden, etc......

We came all the way and found out that the place is still under renovation. So we just snap a group photo outside and left with a big disappointment.
