Bread Seller on Two Wheels

There are quite a number of bread sellers on wheels padding around town selling all varieties of bread, buns and tidbits. They buy the bread from the manufacturer and gain some profit selling it to the people.
There are many household that are fond of getting their daily supply of bread from them as it is very convenient.

Besides selling the bun and loaf, they also prepare slices of bread with choices of kaya and margarine.


They are very noticeable and can be heard paddling the streets with the ringing sound of the bell (the bell is just beside the blue packets of snack).
