Sarikei houses.

When the bottom house was constructed, Father moved from the top house at Repok Road to this house off Repok Road next to the Sarikei Fire station. It too has an upstairs setting. The domestic worker stayed downstairs.

Among the civil servants, my dad must have (almost) most number of children, 9 kids . Had most girls, 6 girls, and stayed in 3 class four quarters, 1 class three and 2 class two. He must have moved also the most number of times.

I am not sure I understand fully this culture, but it looks like a cozy house and a fun place to grow up.

These housing hierarchy must have come from the British. The very senior civil servants stayed in class one. My Dad was mid senior , he stayed in class 2.etc
