Doing good business on an old trade – popiah skins August 16, 2006

Posted by asianpixmen in Miscellaneous.

In an old trade like making popiah skins, the Penang Chinese are rather versatile. As you may have noticed, the shop where the popiah skins are made also sells newspapers beside other things.

The modern economic term is called “diversification”. Sometimes, this is called the “five-in-one” trade, meaning the trader also sells four other items besides the main trade.
