Night Soil Carriers

Was having dinner with my uncle and he told about the night soil carriers in Teluk Intan- person who collects the faeces back in the 60s. My uncle related how the night soil carriers may sometimes catch you off-guard when you're doing your 'business' way at night or in the wee morning while they're doing their daily pickup.

I heard that night soil carriers still operate in india and china. Thank gawd for our sewage system....

We seem to take things for granted these days. Kudos to the night soil carriers for doing things that most of us would shun...

Papa always told us that if we did not work hard....we would end up as night soil carriers!

Yes, indeed kudos to the night soil carriers! As I had mentioned in my blog, I'd rather work ten hours a day in the construction site than to be a night soil carrier!

Thank God for flushing system...but then thank God also for the cleaners who clean the drains and check the tanks when they get stuck!
