“We used to empty the milk tins and tin of fruit tins and cut them with a tin opener to make a billycan out of the milk tins and make cups from the fruit tins. So we boiled tea in the milk tin and pore it into fruit tins to drink a tea. No cups and no billycans. We still do it today the same way. If no cups or billycan at home. We learnt from our parents.” – Beryl Ponce
