The local fruit stall owners usually write the price of fruits on a small piece of carton board. The Chinese way of writing the price per item is in reverse order compared to the English. Those of them who are keen on making the price known to the perspective English-speaking customers sometimes write in English using the Chinese order. Therefore, they may write 10 (dollars) for 5 (oranges, for example) when they actually mean 5 for $10. Do watch out.

In this shot of the old neighbourhood which is rather movie like, the delivery man and the unique bike as the foreground are as crucial as the background in giving a quality of oldness to the image. This foreground-and-background perspective is a frequently used composition technique of the author in hopefully telling as much a story as possible with an image.
The long stretch of the street to the vanishing point on the horizon also relates to the foreground elements by suggesting the direction of movement of the delivery man, providing cohesion for the composition as a whole.
