Shaking legs normally means one is carefree, very free and so is enjoying life. In the olden days Foochow parents would not allow their children to shake their legs because during those days every one ought to be busy working very hard to survive, so where got time to shake legs and be lazy? The other day I observed sitting next to my table in a Chinese restaurant, a young lady not wearing her shoes. At first I did not see her legs as well as she was sitting buddha style on the comfortable chair.Throughout the dinner she left her pair of shoes neatly on the floor...she certainly knows how to enjoy life and the food as well, to the fullest!
This piggy is destined for the cooking pot.Put inside a polythene bag only with its nose poking out from a hole to breathe, it is like being blind-folded. It still manages to sit on the floor of a small long boat waiting for the owner to bring him home to be slaughtered for the Gawai Dayak celebration.My honest guess is this man is the driver of the pick-up, too tired after hours of driving. He finds himself a comfortable place to have a much needed rest and sleep, despite being beside a noisy market. I have seen people loving their cars more than their wives. Spending hours to pamper them with polish and decorating the interior etc etc whenever they are free. I shot this picture from inside a moving car without winding down the windscreen, of a taxi driver washing his car's tyre and rim. The car was parked in an area exclusive for taxis and while waiting for his turn to pick up passengers, he made full use of the little free time to make sure his car was in absolute tip top, dust free conditions.My impression is the driver is a very responsible and careful person so it is safe to let him drive you any where.
