Tossing Newspapers

People in Malaysia accumulate a large amount of newspapers. I have noticed this from the first day I set foot in the country in 2002.

This old lady threw stacks of newspapers off her 2nd floor balcony, creating a thudding sound around our apartments.

A man collected the newspapers and threw them in his lorry.

I must admit, this event was highly exciting for an Englishman living in Malaysia!

  2. Bonjour cher Duncan
    MERCI pour ces photos !
    Je pense que l'on ne verrait pas cette situation en Angleterre ! :o)
    GROS BISOUS à toi et ta famille
    et bonne journée en Malaisie !

  3. I guess this is highly exciting for anyone who's not used to this 'tradition'! :-)

  4. It's all about perspective isn't it? ;-)

  5. We used to collect newspapers too, honey!But we gave them to the Kuantan Curry House for them to wrap their vegetables!

  6. So interesting to think that around here, newspapers are in danger of extinction! So many have folded, even major ones...

  7. Is it about recycling Duncan? I like your 'action' shots!

  8. Interesting shots.
    It's about recycling.

  9. One of our papers in town is about to go out of business, hard to wrap things in web pages.
