MY GOLDEN YEARS
mr chew, can't really make out because the black and white photo does not show what the man is holding clearly. i guess he is selling maltose. until about 10 years ago, could still get this candy stick from pasar malam. nowadays, don't see it anymore.
Is this a "Beh Leh Ko" vendor twisting candy on the tiny sticks?The "Beh Leh Ko" is transparent..but oh, so sweet!My favorite treat when I was young.
alex said: I can only think of him as a seller of maltose (malt sugar), they normally carry the malt sugar in a metal bucket with a wooden cover. The seller normally uses a pair of bamboo stick to deliver his maltose. Wild guess, could be wrong.Sorry alex, I deleted your comment which is being reproduced above.
All 3 orang lama got the correct answer. alex was the first to submit his comment and I deleted it. My apology alex.
Hey; if I had seen your post earlier, you would have had 4 correct answers ok. But must confess that I could not remember the name. The ones I saw were honey colour; dark brown.
chun see, I am sure you, victor, laukokok and other old timers know the answer. I have added the "Beh Leh Ko" picture to Teaser 3
Philip. You have so many high quality photos, you should submit them to the Then and Now competition organized by Today newspaper. I think you will stand a very good chance of winning the $1000 :)
Philip, Not a problem. Nice to know there are enough orang lama around to remember what's going on when they were young. Thanks for bringing back such good memories of yesteryears.
Thanks chun see. Others may have better pictures. I have already won a digital photo/video frame by posting old photos in 'Fotos for the Future'. It is also shown in Star Hub tv History channel.
Chun See, I have changed my mind and decided to take your advice and submitted for the 'Then & Now" competition.
Well done man! We will cheer for you.
