As for mine, I selected a environment with regards to my heart--the kelongs, or previous fisheries on stilts, that when dotted the waters of Singapore yet are steadily disappearing. i've got a deep experience of romance approximately those kelongs, besides the numerous different settings, characters, nuances, and quirks that you're going to see in those tales. they're severe, inky, nebulous. there's evil, unhappiness, a foreboding.
