This photo was taken early in the 1980’s of the Indian Kueh seller. Interestingly he sold ‘nyona kueh’ as well as the fried popiah.
The pushcart had replaced the carrying pole of the time. Noted too he had a stove at the back though I did not think of checking it out then. Could he have been selling mee rebus.
He must had wondered why I wanted to photograph him cause he had a real steely look about him.
No doubt his life was a tough one. But looking back I am glad I took the shot cause I don’t see these hawkers any more.
