just another (disappearing) house...

While I was still being carried away by the amazing vastness and magnificence of the harbour,
I turned around to join my team but only found myself to be held up by just another sight.
I was captivated, not by something spectacular, but by the mood of a not-too-old,
ordinary-looking yet lonely house in which some ordinary local people were residing.

Almost all the neighbouring buildings were already bulldozed to make way for new developments;
I knew very well that not too soon in the future this house would also be be replaced by a
luxury hotel or an expensive resort home (for some wealthy people from outside)...
So, the moment I took one last shot of this house,
perhaps I was also saying farewell to Behai's existing way of living.
