This is the ice cream van that has been frequenting my estate for some years, sometimes at daytime (esp weekends) but mostly at nights(during weekdays).

Initially i viewed it a noisy disturbance with the old ice cream man ringing his bell for a prolong period to indicate his arrival, but over the years i have grown to accept this as it brings neighbours and children of the block down to buy the "potong" (cut) ice cream that you have with wafer or bread or in a cup. 

Mobile ice cream vendors are around (and maybe making a come back), but it is not often you see an ice cream van that drives to your block ! 

A vanishing trade, with increasing fuel (diesel/petrol) cost...yes likely..Hence i am sharing this, before it becomes a memory.....
