Corn for cigars

Corn (and paddy) for cigarette label's. What's the relation between corn and paddy with cigars?
The cornfield was beside to the tobacco fields? The owner was so rich that he has cornfield, paddy field and tobacco field? Or there were many personal reason that we do not have to be explained.
"NASERUN" (do you see the lettering? uh) probably was the owner of this home industry.

padi (indonesian) : paddy
sigarete kretek : blank cigars without filter.

"Safe" Cigarette Label

Cigarette-pack label named "SAFE".
The important question for this label was: "With 33.8 mg tar and 1.8 nicotine is it really s-a-f-e?" "And safe from what?" "Safe for whom?"
Anyway, this kind of cigarette was so popular in Malang, especially in lower community.
Produced by PT. UTAMA MAMA (indonesian) means: the very best mother, a home industy, only for local distribution.
As we know, a good mother will not produce a pack of cigarettes named SAFE that higienically proven isn't safe.

Wooden Bus

Wooden bus. A handmade toy that made from rejected-wood. Not quite similar to original bus. But it's OK. We can moved this toy manually. Just push it or pull it. No batteries needed. I found it in Gembira Loka Zoo Market, Jogjakarta, Central Java, Indonesia.

This old man was selling "coconut-ice". He walked around with his "wheeled-showcase" in a neighbourhoud of Sawojajar, Malang, East Java. With his smiley-face he asked everyone who want to buy a cup of "coconut-ice".
Don't asked him, where or how he wash-out the dishes.

Snapshot: "Banana Seller"

This old lady was selling bananas in a traditional market in Malang, East Java, Indonesia. Only a few bananas showed on this old-wood table, in the corner of the market. She looked so quiet.
