My friend, a hawker 我的朋友, 我的老师, 一个小贩 ...


有志者,事竟成
yǒu zhì zhe, shì jìng chéng

Where there is a will, they is a way
 ..
my friend for 40 years since first year in primary school 
has been a hawker all his life after 
dropping out from high school 
...
I respect how he had stood up 
to life on the streets of KL all these years 
...
he is not just a friend but 
my teacher in life
...

Mr Hawker 小贩先生 ...

China Town, 
Kuala Lumpur

How impressive a mean to measure time and ones age.

And yes, he probably owns much freedom. May life continue to treat you both kind.
