Bird's Eye View of Home

A friend told me about how he saw his house in Batu Gajah, Perak very clearly in the Google Map so I tried to find my mother's house in Melaka.

Here it is..

The satelite pic is so very clear and I noticed that there were some fires as well in the area (black patch in small pic, inset) - that's the 'normal' open air burning in the area (awful, I know!) - so I am pretty sure that it was a hot day there at the time the satelite took those pics and there were not too many clouds, hence why the pic is so clear.

My mum's house is the one that is not exactly facing the road as my arwah ayah had the house built facing the kiblat. There is a little tarred road that leads to the house from the main road and I can also see so very clearly the four overgrown pine trees in the front garden that my arwah ayah had had planted when the house was first built more than 20 years ago.

Felt a pain in my chest as I was looking at the picture. How I miss home!

Flowerin: Tu la.. heard about the KL satelite pics but wasn't interested to check - never thought pics of the other states are available. Only tried after my friend told me about the very clear pics of his house in Batu Gajah :)

Kino: Go to and click on Google Map:)

Blueberry: Nope..not raya this year. Maybe next year...sob sob
