Features – Old business in Kota Kinabalu (Cobbler)


A Cobbler at Kampung Air (Tet Fun Shoe Maker)

Hidden at a corner at Kampung Air, a cobbler is busy repairing shoes and listening to his radio. It is a one man operation and he sits on the floor next to big piles of shoes all waiting to be repaired. The signboard must be from many years ago and another sign states that he is also a shoe maker. We had a quick chat with him. He told us that he has been running this shop since 1966. That is more than 45 years! Its hard to imagine someone doing the same job at the same place for 45 years. This is a really dedication to his job.
