Moon Window of Peranakan House at Heeren Street

A round hole that allows one to look through to your neighbour's house ~ what should I call it? A moon window, that's what came to my mind.

This was taken at a traditional Peranakan (Straits-born Chinese) house at Heeren Street Melaka. The patterns around the round window makes this window attractive. Below this window is a nice bench with attractive patterns too. See the photo below where I got my nephew and niece to pose for a photo.

Cute kids and a nice"window".

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
