|The Sunday morning market in Rasa Town.|
I was trying to escape the haze last week when I took a 70km drive to Rasa in Hulu Selangor. It wasn't very successful but I did enjoy myself having a plein aire session there. Rasa is a single street rural town lined by two rows of pre-War shophouses. With a residents profile of predominantly Malays and Chinese, there are several housing estates surrounding it. The Rasa Komuter station is at the side of the town and it was where one could still find some very old double-storey mansions and shop houses, some abandoned but some still inhabited.
|The air was so thick with haze that I decided to do a quick sketch of four shop houses facing the Rasa train station.|
