【2014 Hong Kong-Malaysia Joint Issue - Local Food : Satay 】
【2014 香港-马来西亚联发-地道食物 : 沙爹】

I have this "Satay Man postcard" by SW Singapore printer of the 1960s, to a pure deltiologist ,he prefers to keep the postcard in its vintage condition, however, I prefer to give this postcard a new life by turning it into a maximum card as I am a pure maximaphilist. Nobody is right or wrong.
Mobile satay man selling across the streets and alleys had been a common scene in the past. Equipped with tools, a satay man can prepare satay freely at any place. Just as the picture of the postcard shows, I enjoyed the moments of eating satay in an open air environment.

Well, life has gone through tremendous changes, selling satay on the streets is disappearing from our sight.Production of satay is highly commercialised, and of course the original flavour of the satay is Gone. I can now find the fragrance of satay flavour in my Maximum Card. Enjoy!

这一枚“沙爹人”明信片是新加坡著名明信片印制商于60年代所发行。对于一个纯明信片收集者而言,他会选择保存原片而收存。然而我却选择赋予这一枚老片一个新生命,把它制成一枚极限片,因为我是一个极限人。大家都是在收集,没有所谓的对与错。
流动“沙爹人”骑着铁马到处叫卖沙爹在早年时代极为普遍。一个“沙爹人”载着简单的烧制沙爹工具,就可随处叫卖沙爹。 正如明信片上的“沙爹人”现场烧制情景,叫我缅怀那一年在露天即兴享受吃沙爹的乐趣。

时代变迁,“沙爹人”随街叫卖的情景已不复在。如今沙爹的制作已经机械化,少了传统烧制的美味。我也只能回到我制作的极限片上一享沙爹风味的乐趣。共赏!
