Submerged in the sea of time, beauty and loss 沉在時間之海的美麗與失落 ...


Nov 09, 2010
Imbi Market

Thirsty years like one day ...
三十年如一



In this coffee shop of 30 years ...
在这三十历史咖啡店 ...



as if time stood still ...
仿佛时间停止了 ...



no more then 2 person can be accommodated within
the small space of this make-shift coffee shop ...
超过可容纳 咖啡店的空间 ...



there are no elegance here ...
这里没有优雅 ...



nor is there a menu ...
也没有菜单 ...



Just plain old Uncle Wan Onn's coffee shop ...
只是普通华叔的咖啡店 ...



In his younger days, Uncle Wah played some soccer in
the local district cup ...
华叔年轻的时候还玩了一些足球赛 ...



but his passion to make a good cup of coffee ...
但他的激情,做一杯好咖啡 ...



for these years ...
这些年来 ...



the plain old ways ...
普通的老方法 ...



like this ...
像这样 ...



starts my day off early in the morning ...
开始一天清晨...



in this market ...
在这个市场 ...



where time seems to stand still in this little coffee shop ...
仿佛时间停止了,在这个小咖啡店...
