Yati's very clean, orderly & colourful shop

Just went to Yati's mini market to buy a packet of Benson & Hedges and find someone in the neighbourhood to chat about the weather, traffic condition, latest movies and gossips in town before going on reading Michael Leifer's Selected Works on Southeast Asia. Yati's shop is getting more and more laku because it is always very clean, orderly and colourful. It also always makes me feel to be still in Melbourne's suburb Clayton, although sweet Yati always speaks Malay with heavy Indonesian accent because she came from Surabaya, a beautiful city in Java which I visited twice many years ago.
