This is a self-contained colony. They have their own "chai tiam mah".

Many of my childhood sweets can be found here. Smile Thanks Kayes for sharing. Still guessing what is that stainless steel container on the left of this pic.? Notice the name of this shop - "Soon Hin" is also printed in Jawi on the signboard.

hi Orange, sorry I missed your question earlier. I think that steel container is used for burning "prayer paper". All these jetty houses are made of wood and burning of prayer paper on the "ground" would quite certainly bring the house down Smile

Thanks Kayes for the infor. Those used in Ipoh and KL are mostly painted in red and of different shapes. The quality of the one shown in your pic. is of higher quality. It's very interesting to look at this pic. because there are so many things which can't be found in the city anymore. Things like biscuits stored in "kerosene tins", cigarette with old packaging, stainless steel tiffin carriers and esp. the hand written message: "Amaran: Tembakau kepada orang di bawah umur lapan belas ke bawah adalah di larang!" Smile Thanks again for sharing!
