摩多船

  這是自書本上翻拍的摩多船相片,目前在拉讓江已經沒有幾艘了!
  除了載客,載貨,載土產,還可以用來充流動雜貨店,在下稱為水冮supermarket!

  話說,昨晚找阿啟哥的大姐談,說他們住在近詩巫的下新芭(Telok Selalau),不時有艨艟(Mandong?就是摩多船雜貨店)來售賣各種雜貨--她回憶來自合春園的艨艟,由黃聲興為東主。黃聲興本身沒唸多少書,但有顧客要賖脹,他用其特別字體-象形字或圖像字記錄(Image or Drawing writing),也會做的很“平直”(不含糊的意思),老少不欺!若有需要開單(Invoice),也開的很清楚,不過都不是用正楷的漢字來書寫呢!
  原來做生意不一定都要唸很多書的人!
  後來聲興常在詩巫碼頭的福聚和添油,看到當時負責油站工作的張清拉很老實,又很殷勤,與其父親談起把自己女兒嫁給他呢!清拉夫婦,生兒育女,其中一位名叫張燕(Jessica Tiong),12年前飛往柬埔寨宣教,成為砂拉越差派金邊的第一人!
  艨艟,說到張燕,似乎話不對題,卻有許多聯系......
  艨朣,自拉讓江駛向湄公河......
  目前遇到年長者,都要追根究底,要撰寫山芭-當年福州人祖先初抵時的地方的點點滴滴!

今天的摩多船的底部是鐵板造的,今非昔比了

说到"曼侗"年幼时我也跑过,那时是跑"涡口",拉腊一带.只记得老板叫"孔礼",那年我学到"无商不尖"的道理.

Huo Ang was from Ah Nang Chong and he owned a good mandong too.
We loved buying ice cream from him. Life was special when we had ice cream - a luxury.
Trading will always be the same - some one will sell and many people will buy - supply and demand - only the mode changes.

It is nice to know about Jessica's (Chang Yen) parentage!!

現在要找原來木製的艨艟都已找不到了,可惜!
Most of the villages along Rajang River got their village's motor launches(use the name of the village) own by the villagers.
