Anggertimur Lanang Tinarbuko
"Sore, sore padang bulan. Ayo konco, podo dolanan. Rene-rene bebarengan. Rame-rame e do gegojegan. Kae-kae rembulane. Yen disawang kok ngawe-awe. Koyo-koyo ngelingake. Konco kabeh ojo turu sore-sore”.
This traditional song played melodiously on the MP3 player belonging to Jumiyo, 63. It accompanied his rest after the long journey he had made from Pandak district, Bantul regency, to Yogyakarta's Alun-alun Selatan (south town square) on an onthel (roaster bicycle) since 3 p.m.
Affectionately known as Mbah Jadul (Old Timer), Jumiyo sells old-fashioned ice lollies to children as well as their parents. On his onthel, there is a zinc-plated box that stores six flasks filled with his frozen treats. A blue and white sign hangs from the side. He whips up trade on a custom trumpet and with a hand bell.
Mbah Jadul can be found strolling around Alun-alun Selatan from dusk until late at night. Usually he will approach a crowd to offer them ice lollies in various flavors and priced at Rp 2,000 (less than 50 US cents).
When his legs start to get tired after walking around, he will lean his onthel against a post and take out some of the shredded tobacco that he carries everywhere with him and start rolling it.
The day ends with a smoke while enjoying the songs on his MP3 player in the middle of the evening atmosphere in Yogyakarta's Alun-alun Selatan [kes].
