An elderly couple remarked that the crowds have disappeared after Chinese New Year and looking at their facial expressions I could not tell if they were disappointed or not. Some of the stalls were still putting out New Year goods for sale. The rest were there to cater to the sporadic appearance of tourists strolling through this street that was once distinctive because 'Death Houses' used to occupy the shops opposite these stalls. The Sago Lane in my childhood was not a place for merry-making unless one was looking forward to cross the boundaries to another world.
My stripes are more eye-catching than yours.
As was typical of our tropical weather, a shower brought out the plastic covers to shield the precious goods from the rain.
