Becak, originated from Chinese- Hokkien dialect- 'be chia' (horse carriage), it entered Indonesia circa 1940.  Becak has been part of our history.. at least for most of us who were born before 1990. And how happy I am to find that many cities still  have it abundantly as public transportation.
Colorful, as it could be, seeing becak is seeing my childhood.

Stumbled upon a nice story, er, history about becak...
