不用大驚小怪!

日前post一張加帛人扛波波車的圖,大家都把他捧到奧運水準,其實每天他們都是如此生活呢!
快艇一靠岸,就有許多卡高(苦力或駁力)要拿貨物,為賺取一點小酬勞,圖示除了卡高搬貨要有功夫,搭客抱著孩子走在船沿邊也要功夫呢!

1,2,3,4,5,6......共12盤的雞蛋,也是一口氣自船頂拿到岸頂,沒喘一口氣,咱們在菜巴剎買了一盤雞蛋還大呼小吃的......

3箱貨10多KG算不了什么啦!

煤氣桶,也沒拉沙......(算不了什么的意思),另一邊手還要拿一箱貨物呢!

Dear ML
Tbese pictures are eye openers.

The egg trays carrying Iban man reminds me of my trip to Pa Adang. My Penan porter was able to "fly" with 12 trays of eggs on his back carrier . He took 11/2 hours to reach Pa Adang. I took 4 hours of long and slow walk.

These wonderful indigenous people "put us to shame" really. Life for them is so hard yet they find it so "ordinary". May God bless them.

人人有生存之道,人只用了五巴仙的脑,体力的极限呢,奥运还在不断破记录呢。
