Meals on wheels

The customized motorcycle and bicycle side car designs in Manila can be very ingenious. I've already shown you what our neighborhood water filtering station uses to deliver 5-gallon bottles. This man has a gas stove and an eating counter attached to his bicycle.

As Dina said, "Meals on wheels." Neat idea put into practical practice.

This is just amazing. It certainly makes for a flexible restaurant!

If business doesn't come to me - I must go to find the business! - maybe his vision statement!? Fun photo, Hilda

The creativity of the filipinos is what struck me as amazing.. and this continues to confirm that! A very flexible restaurant for sure!

The interesting thing is that Meals on Wheels is a program here in the US that provides meal services to those in need, especially seniors. I can imagine how happy they would be if they ever got their meals delivered by this young man!

Unbelievable what can be loaded on a motorbike. Really ingenious use of every inch of space. It must be tough though to ride and keep it upright. Fascinating shot. Nice!

very ingenious! You've got to make a buck anyway you can.

Dusty Lens said...

This is quite the bicycle/food stand. Must be heavy to peddle, though.

White Oleander said...

This is insane! This man will do very well in Denmark since they use bicycles a lot here.

This is similar to what we have in Thailand :)

Very creative - perfect for camping - he may want to sell few to travelers and adventurers

George said...

I'm very impressed with the ingenuity of this man. He really does give new meaning to the phrase 'meals on wheels'.

now this is a self-sufficient entrepreneur. I wonder what he has to do for security when he needs to take a break or go into a store. I started a series today on my website from my photography tour. It was quite an interesting trip to the slot canyon and Vermillion Cliffs. Also, if you like travel photos, we have posted action photos from Buenos Aires, Argentina on our travel photo site, www.vivalavoyage.com. Happy Monday!

That's the kind of transportation I want! Ride it, Cook on it...there's really not much more you can ask for :)
