The Mackan123 viewsThe mackan (think the spelling is right) is actually two pieces of
bamboo, the stall holder would walk up and down banging them together in his
/ her own special way to advertise the fact the stall was ready for
business. I used to bang the two pieces of wood together for a bit of a laugh to confuse the locals.

cutting is either from the Straits Times or the Malay Mail159 viewsThe newspaper cutting is either from the Straits Times or the Malay Mail,
(the article appeared in both), The background to the story is that my sister and occasionally me would help out at the Singapore Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The local papers obviously thought it would make a good story.
