Rumah Terbalik, Malaysia's first upside-down house

1,500-square-foot, two-bedroom home 'Rumah Terbalik' (created by Alexander Yee) is built at Sabah village, Malaysia.
Literally everything in Rumah Terbalik is topsy turvy.

Inside, a TV, microwave, tables, chairs and sofas dangle above visitors who navigate the home’s ceilings, steering around light fixtures and ceiling fans. Playing cards and comic books strewn along the floor, a cigarette in an ashtray, make it seem as though the family has just left the room. Even the washing machine and sewing machine hang overhead.

BTW, there is also an upside-down house 'The World Stands on its Head' in Germany which also brings a childhood fantasy to life.
