Binh duong, the owner of a small property in Langkawi, said the land project on his land was about to get bigger.
“I just wanted to get rid of the rubbish and get rid off the weeds, and now we have a lot more space and I have a new house,” he said.
“We have a huge pool on our property and I will do a lot of gardening, too.”
Mr duong said his new house was more than 40 years old, and his house has been a home for about a decade.
“My wife has a dog that loves to come and play, and she is always on the lookout for new places to live,” he explained.
“So I had to find a way to make this place work.”
Mr Duong said he had a contract with the government to build a new property and said he was looking forward to using his old property.
“That was my old home, it was not a good place to live in and so I decided to put it to use,” he told the ABC.
“This was my family’s house.
I had this old place and I decided that if I could get rid and move to a new place, then I would.”
He said he hoped the project would pay off.
“It is a good investment for us, it will pay for us to pay for our rent for the next five years and then we will be looking for another place to rent,” he added.
“Hopefully it will bring us some income.”
