市道不好,小販就出現了。找不到工作,有甚麼比擺攤子做點小買賣更好?


日本經濟泡沫一爆,已有十多年了,大家想盡辦法求生,現在他們搞所謂的流動販賣,就是我們的「快餐車」。


我對這種經營手法甚感興趣,十幾年前與洪金寶和成龍一齊到西班牙,拍的也是以快餐車為主題的電影。


當今日本流行的車子,一輛賣十萬多港幣,車內設備齊全,有爐有灶,不過這種車一賣到其他地方就要貴得多了。


很贊成當小販這一回事兒,百花齊放,多好!在泰國,我們的攝影隊去到那裏,那裏就有小販出現,像群螞蟻。政府照顧民生,放條生路,我們的所謂文明社會,禁這個禁那個。


小販真的好像政府所說那麼不乾淨嗎?我們也經過小販年代,還不是好好地活了下來?看別的...
