Place full of historical wealth

Being in one of the founding father's first homes was quite breathtaking to me as it was a beautifully preserved building. It looked big on the outside and even bigger on the inside. It had all sorts of artifacts and common household items that were used by the man itself in his time.

There were several workers there who welcome me inside and allowed me to take as many photos as I wanted. I talked to them and asked them what they knew about the place and I ended up receiving an enthusiastic tour which lasted nearly 2 hours.I never knew just how influential Yeap Chor Ee was until now. It was quite right to see that behind the building stands Wawasan Open University. Such a place of prestige is backed by education. A good and clear symbol of success.
