Amazing shop Kayes. All his spare parts are in drawers, shelves and floor but I bet he knows exactly where things are. There is a method in the madness!

And I like the way the customer squats there waiting for the repairs to be completed Smile By the looks of the bicycle, it has achieved vintage status.

I think this is good for customer/trader relationship. Gets things done the way you like it. Hmmm! I wonder if he sells helmets for cyclists there.

hi Joe, I had a quick look inside the shop as I passed. I don't think he has helmets for sale.

The pic. of the guy squating reminded me of the famous char koay teow stalls at the Casual market where the guys will sit on a low stool (practically squating) to fry the noodles. I don't see them anymore or have they decided to stand and fry it?

Kayes, looks like Taiping doesn't have any char koay teow person sitting on a stool to fry it now. However, if you go to the Kampar morning market, there is a guy who sits on a low stool and fries his char koay teow. It costs only RM2.70 a plate. Quite cheap especially in such times.
