Once upon a time on a little island in the South China Sea, old people and parcels were treated much the same: ferried about on crude trolleys, like the one on the left.

Thankfully, those days are no more. For people, anyway. Wheelchairs have become commonplace (usually powered by a Filipino), while the more affluent and independent have the run of the island on their electric-powered wheelchairs. Good for them!

Oh. that electric Esso "truck"? Used for delivering LPG bottles, the primary energy source for firing up the wok and other cooking needs.
