On a recent trip to Malacca at the river end of Jonker Street I came across these guys that were taking the flesh out of coconuts. In doing so they had the skill to keep the coconut flesh together as a ball of flesh. This meant you could put it in a plastic cup, stick in a straw and have a refreshing drink.
These little street stall business are one of the many things we will miss about Asia. So many skilled people earning a simple living and taking satisfaction in the crowds that adore what they do.
