Wooden Chick Is Not Your Frigid Or Unemotional Girlfriend – Part 2

An old chick in Parit Jawa

A Very Old Chick.

A wooden or bamboo chick I saw on the front of a camera shop in tiny Parit Jawa town, south of Muar. The advertisement for a Asahi Pentax Spotmatic camera reads like history. It dates it to between 1964 and 1976, leaving a clue about the longevity of the shop. The model was the then much aspired SLR 35mm film camera because of its compact design, Takumar lenses and TTL needle metering. Then, came the even smaller, analog Olympus OM-1.

I searched Google Street View and was blown away to see Kedai Gambar Wong on Jalan Jabbar, behind the famous Ikan Assam Pedas Chinese corner kopitiam where Muarian Noraini (Yusof Noi) took me to eat.
