Shot taken in the subway towards Orchard MRT Station in Singapore……… some may comment that I shouldn’t have shot the ‘moment’ or share them, as the ‘musician’ stated clearly that the should be no photographs taken.
But it is a public place………… so I guess he was there when I wanted to shoot.
Another shot from the night market on Jln Tan Hiok Nee, Johor Bahru.

This was one of the first few shorts of my mini project, 64 squares……. which is still on going. Shot back in 2010, I keep coming back to this place for one or two shots each time, and also make friends with some of them.
I actually forgot about this shot until somebody decided to pick this photo as one of his favourite in flicker……
Trishaw or Beca/Becha in malay use to a regular mode of transport when I was small back in the 70’s in Malaysia.
I use to ride with either my mother or grandmother when ever I followed them to the market in Batu Pahat or Pontian in the state of Johor, Malaysia then. Now, I don’t actually see anymore of them in Pontian or maybe a handful in Batu Pahat.
In the major tourist area, Malacca or Penang and also Singapore…… they are now a tourist attraction rather than serving the locals.
btw, one of my mates updated some information on this trishaw man…..
“Pakcik ni kayuh beca since aku sekolah rendah lagi (translation: This man has been peddling the trishaw since I was in primary/elementary school)….and yes some of the people he ferried around are now successful doctors, businessmen, & engineers. Thank you for the photo which tells that he is still doing his noble job. “Pakcik Koboi” (as we used to call him),”
