拉讓江早期流動Supermarket

曼噹!慢吞!艋艟?

  Bo...bo...bu... 艋艟來了,快去辦貨了!
  這是早期川行在拉讓江上下游的摩多船,後來被快艇取代,不過至今仍有一些存在,載貨也載客,穿梭在鄰近的村落與小鎮 當時有幾艘類似的摩多船充做流動性的雜貨船,到了一個村莊碼就响了笛,坡民們聽到就來上船採購,好不熱鬧......
  大家都叫他是
慢噹 在下查字典,艨艟指是戰船,艋舺指小船,諧音的就取艋艟,不曉得真正福州話怎寫呢!?船上就是一間小型百貨商店,應有盡有,堆積密密碼碼,人在其中要擠來擠去,有時就叫老板或伙計說要什么,他們就去找,比較重的貨物還幫你送到碼頭上的腳踏車去!
  据說現在一些村坡在陸路難抵步的地方仍有一兩艘的艋艟呢,這種水上supermarket令人懷念特別深!
  七十年代在木桂蘭發生一宗艋艟被搶劫事件,發生人命案件,不太清楚內情,不曉得誰可以詳告一下?
  圖下是一艘摩多船駛過一間木板廠前時影:格格不入的畫面

  這是早期的貨船,現在拉讓江能看到這樣船隻已不多了!

It is sad to see these once proud workhorses of the Rejang in their run-down state. I thought these pics were taken in Africa or Papua New Guinea. Perhaps, a series of stories plus old photos of vessels plying the Rejang during the good old days would interest older folks like us. After all, they are part of the history of the Rejang. Many would doubtfless say, "Those were the days, brother."

那起命案,嗯,当时我在某律师楼工作,看过相片,怵目惊心。第一次看到有人(死者的儿子)双臂戴孝的。印象很深。
