As corcern, he is the only person in Malaysia that is still making joss stick the manual way. Here are some photos taken together with him... Mind the blurness... forgot to take along my camera... :)



The man itself, Mr Lee, with the photo of the Astro crew that filmed his documentation.


Another photo shot of himself, proudly showing it to us. Im holding a 6 feet joss stick, made by himself...



His weapon of 'cari makan'.



A sample of the Australia sandalwood, his weapon also... o_O


Some of Mr Lee's handmade joss sticks.


And also this... Funny looking eh...



Hah, this is a masterpiece!!!


video



And a short video in his prewar shoplot... Very nice...

And I would say that he is a very nice person, not being shy to show to us the way how the joss stick is made, and he is quite a talkative person too... A very nice person indeed...

Thank you Mr Lee.........

and thanks alot Kat, for helping me to capture the shots and the film...
