Anime, Cartoons, Comics! Plight Vol. 2, no. 13: Part 2 - the Overflow by Cobaltios


So, after yesterday’s "intermission" I’m going to continue my photo series. Since there’s only two episodes left tomorrow will be the last one. For today the theme will be "Roadside peddlers."

Want to build a car? It doesn't need to be a car

So I found out that Hot Wheels toys are manufactured in Malaysia, and because of that we got a lot of hot wheel toys for cheap here since we are neighboring with them. Thus we can get a lot of limited editions easy.

I wish cars are sold like this

I mean seriously every Sunday I can find at least 4 peddlers who sell Hot Wheels toys.

Fit to equip an ancient army

This guy looks like a graduated from Billy Mays School of marketing. This guy wear a headset with mic and pretty loud in selling his wares. That is blades and the likes. WANT TO START A WAR? GET THESE MACHETES! BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

I'm selling cool rabbits and cool cats

This guy is selling rabbits LIKE A BOSS.

No young man, this umbrella is not for sissy boy like you

Oh man this guy is a riot! He’s half deaf and selling cheap paper umbrellas. I had to yell all the time when I asked him permission to take his pic and he keep misunderstood what I said.

Mysterious peddler with mysterious merchandise

This is one of the weirdest peddler I met. He sold miscellaneous items. Broken phones, Rings with cheap stones, Broken watches, old money, little knives, perfume etc etc. He doesn’t speak much. He just…. stared at me.
