Sometimes you cannot forget a face when visiting a certain place. The kindness of a hawker for example cannot be erased from your mind.
And then you also happen to meet up with friends who tell you that "oh that guy over has been making satay for over 40 years!!" and you begin to wonder how interesting it is for this Satay Man to have become some kind of an institution or icon for the town.
In my life I have special memories of a betcha driver Kassim in Sibu and a washer lady "kak" who helped enrich my childhood. The two brothers who sold fish in such an honest manner also moulded my concepts of good business practice.And a gold smith cousin taught me what humility in life is all about.
This Limbang Satay Man must have impacted many of his customers in different ways....
His mannerisms indicate his good cultural upbringing. And each Satay stick would speak for itself...succulent and tasty. You don't feel short changed at all.
