|The tools of her trade remind me of my grandfather's step mother who used to make and repair her own shoes (for bound feet) in Sibu.|
I am always fascinated by shoe makers and shoe repair people ever since I was a small child . As a young child I could sit for hours patiently just watching my great grandmother making and repairing her own very tiny shoes. But there has never been another shoe repair woman in my life since then.
And then all of a sudden here in this little town in Yunnan I found a special woman who repairs shoes. Furthermore she also has a good and rare machine - which can sew the uppers of a shoe to its soles. This is perhaps a rarity in Malaysia.
