Street Hawker - Iksa Menajang

Street hawker

Making a living in the streets

Selling things people buy

As they pass by .

Small business

Very small business

Run by strong people

Strong minds of the survivor.

Creativity is a must

Since the street is tough

To earn you must

Be different

Than so many others

Sharing the same street.

Pindang Indramayu - Iksa Menajang

Preparing all the fishes

Not arguing for lack of sleep

Or for coldness of the weather

Even it is raining hard the whole week

Flood surrounding the area.

Still she has to survive

The fermented fish, Pindang we call it

Must be sold

So she can earn another day’s living

For her and her family.

A Tough Old Lady


Pindang Indramayu - Iksa Menajang

In the shore areas

Fish are abundant

And it is everyones diet.

Still there are many of them

Wasted if not used.

Expensive and difficult transportation

So they are not able to be eaten fresh elsewhere.

Preservation the only way,

Fermentation and brining is one of the preservation method.

Pindang we call it ..

Interestingly it is kept in enamel pan,

Something rarely seen in the city I live.

Tradition values the people.

Vietnamese Coffee - Iksa Menajang

Many ways to get satisfaction

Many ways to get a good coffee

One way is to drip hot water

Through a layer of ground coffee

So that way

The taste and flavor of coffee

Is drained along

With the drip

And we will drink just the coffee.

The picture above is the

Vietnamese coffee dripper.

Fleur de Mar - Iksa Menajang

Fast forward to the end

We have been through many

Hot and cold

Oily, salty, soft and hard

Cooked and fresh

Still we want to have

Sweetness to close with.
