Dried Goods Wholesaler, Pasir Panjang
Uncle Dìshān (地山) is a dried goods wholesaler. He was born in Singapore before the Japanese occupation. His father came from Xiangqiao District (湘桥区), a district under the administration of Chaozhou city, in Guangdong, China.
As he inspected his goods, he noticed his hands and thought to himself (in Teochew) that he needed some good moisturiser. The irony was not lost on him and he chuckled to himself in good humour.
He’ll probably get Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream.
But Uncle Dìshān doesn’t fear aging. He knows where he is going.
