老詩巫:東山路有999年地契 old Sibu: tiong sang road

這排陳舊不起眼的木屋,土地期限可是999年哦.this roll of old wooden houses, the land title is 999 years.
木板屋所剩無幾.wooden houses are getting rare these days.
路口就是市中心,東山路是市區的不可分割一部份. tiong sang road leads directly to the town centre.

這條路是於20世紀,1960年代取名的,至今已有40餘年歷史.
它當年僅屬羊腸小徑,可以直通向約有2公里之遙的東山小學,因此而得名應該非常合理.不過,為何稱為東「山」?有山的味道?該有一點山的痕跡吧?雖然人人知道這條路和詩巫許多其他地區一樣,是處於沼澤地.
當年沒有路直通市中心,須繞道武吉阿拾路.
在發展歲月中,東山路可通向市中心了,唯路段也縮短了.烏也路將東山小學分割開來.後期的黃景和路發展,則使東山路形同市中心的一部份,地價不可同日而語.
許多當年陳舊木屋,近期來常常無緣無故被大火焚燬.現在所剩的已很有限.
不過,千萬不要小看這些木屋.一些的地契可長達999年,只差1年便是1000年,可以住上十多代呢!!!
木屋不值幾分錢,土地就值錢了.
有趣的是,這些土地有一天到期時,是重新獲得延長地契呢?還是收回『發展』?

tiong sang road got its name in the sixties of the last century.
it was a village road then, where a school name Tiong Sang primary school was situated. the road got its name from the school.
this school is still in existence today, but separated from the road, due to other roads coming up in the process.
many houses then were built with wood. and are gradually disappear either through the passage of time, or due to disaster like fire, where houses were destroyed by the rows.
wooden houses still remain today, and the prices are not much. but, believe it or not, some of these houses land title are 999 years, the land owners can stay there for many many generations.
