We rented a tuk-tuk for a short ride to the market.

First time to make monetary donation for coffins and medicine to aid Thai-South. My uncle explained that the area is extremely poor and most Thailand maids come from there. Thus the need for aid.

Pink eggs aka century eggs.

Poor frogs, I hope no one buys them.

There's no lack of personal needs here. You name it, they have it.

You end up with limited leg room at the end of the trip as everyone lives on a buy more just buy don't buy wasted, see already must buy mantra. (nope, not me)

The next stop is lunch by the seaside where mermaids can be spotted!

We took the car ferry over to the other side!

This vehicle is commonly available in Kedah, Malaysia. Apparently, taxes are cheaper and parts are readily available. Pretty suitable for the kind of terrain they have.
