Fruits in the Night



And some of you were thinking of other types of "fruits" more suited with "night"... heh heh heh

Anyway, I need to put up this post to supersede the previous one. Even though the cat poop issue needed to be solved, I hated the illustration that came with it.

We stopped by one of the fruit stalls along the trunk road in Tangkak, Johor. This is the last stretch of road before joining the highway which will take us back to KL. These stalls used to be makeshift wooden/bamboo/canvas sort of construction. FAMA - the Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority, a government agency had made moves to standardise them. They look much better, well lighted and more attractive now. Well done FAMA.

Of course, there are still a lot of improvement that can be done. Safety for instance. The last photo shows how precarious the position of customers and parked cars are against the zooming traffic on the straight road. Position blinkers a few meters before, along and after the stalls perhaps ?

I am afraid my brains are a little slow this morning. I did not think about "those fruits" of the night until you mentioned it. hehe (I would have misinterpreted "tart party", though, if you featured home-made jam tarts). ;)

That fruit stall is positioned dangerously close to zooming traffic. Didn't they figure that when they set it up? hmm...
Unless that was all the space they had.

Eh, FAMA to bukan "Fother - Mather" ke? He...

Like the symmetry of the top pix - cool! Looks like you've gone FG-ing way ahead of us, Capt!

jt, yes the first line was for you kah kah kah. As for the stalls, that is the most viable position and available space they had. I am loking at it positively as a way to promote local produce abeit the need for safety improvements.

ms, did you finally meet chikgu ? FAMA tu banyak kekawan punya sponsor...
