Sungei Road Thieves Market is a flea market that deals only with used and discarded goods. The term “one man’s junk is another’s treasure” is most appropriate here. Most of the vendors here belong to our silver generation. Retiring isn’t a word in their vocabulary. Though their ad hoc stalls are humble and their merchandise used, I saw vigour in many of their eyes. I’m reminded to be proud of what I do. Certainly my job doesn’t define me but what I bring to my job does.
