Rain often spoil a good market day at the tamu. Photographed at Putatan.

Putatan holds their tamu on Saturdays and Sundays. About half the space at the tamu is covered by permanent structure. The other half (photo above) is under temporary tents. When it gets dark, this section is lit by using kerosene lamps (pump pressure).

Laughter at tamu Putatan, a township about 15 km from Kota Kinabalu.

She couldn’t stop laughing, while her friends teased her about being photographed for a magazine.  I love the friendly atmosphere and the hospitality I enjoyed at this market. Oh.. ‘kakak’ in Malay means ‘elder sister”. It is the informal way to address a lady older than yourself.

Mei and Ella... hehehe and hmmm. At BB Cafe, Gaya Street, Kota Kinabalu.

I feel very old.. when they call me “uncle”. Over here, “uncle” is the polite way to address an elder person. *Sigh*… But thankfully, no one calls me “kong-kong” yet, which is the polite way to address an old guy.. hahahaha…
