Whilst walking about after breakfast, I came across a mamak shop - small convenience stores traditionally ran by a friendly Indian uncle (mamak meaning uncle/elder in Tamil). I could not resist taking a few photos of his storefront.
.
While I think they are still relatively common in Penang, across the strait in Singapore, modernisation has threatened the survival of these traditional shops.
.
When I was a kid, I remember running into mamak shops to purchase sweets, snacks and cold drinks from the friendly shopkeep. Now though, I donโ€™t see many of these shops left; most having been replaced by convenience store chains like 7-Eleven and Cheers.
.
Do any of my Malaysian and Singaporean friends have fond memories of these mamak shops? Do share in the comments if you do! ๐Ÿ˜Š
