Time for a coffee-break, gentlemen! October 25, 2007

There was a time when scenes like this were common. But these days, you can rarely find senior citizens sitting around nonchalantly in coffee shops, with one leg folded up, dressed in their casuals and chatting about anything under the sun.

In big towns, you can hardly find anybody without a shirt. Some men are even ashamed to be caught wearing just a singlet. Perhaps it is the sign of the times. Back in those memorable days, Chinese elders walk around in what we used to call “fisherman’s shorts”.

These are normally blue in colour with vertical stripes. They are loose, baggy and looks like a pair of shorts. Nobody had heard of Calvin Klein or Crocodile Brand when hurricane lamps adorn the interior of some homes.

 These two gentlemen were spotted having their little R&R at the Pasir Penambang town near Kuala Selangor. We should all learn to be just as relaxed as them.
