“My family moved here at the end of 1982. Back then, this area is considered the outskirts of Malacca. There wasn’t much demand, it was cheap, and property had generous land area; about 3,400 sq ft. I bought it for RM88,000.
This house was recommended by a friend who was already living close by. My late father told me that I was crazy for staying so far away in the “estate”, instead of living in town.
It is about RM300,000 to RM400,000 now. Prices went up as it is close to MMU (Multimedia University).”
