Hawker center

Back in March 2019, Singapore nominated the hawker culture in Singapore on to the UNESCO Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and a few days before Christmas it was inscribed in the UNESCO list.

The hawker center serve as community dining spaces for all. There are more than 100 hawker centres and some 6,000 hawkers who serve about 150 to 200 affordable meals daily. More than 80 percent of the population visit hawker centres at least once a week.

The hawker centers are truly a melting pot of people where every social economic categories mix and eat next to each other. We love our little local one right next to our condominium. And if you fancy a Michelin Star dining experience you can even do it there. Can lah!

Hawker Centers are such an integral part of Singapore life, always buzzing with people from all walks of life.

This makes me so sad. Only 2 stalls were opened trying to surviving on the couple dollars meal they sell.

Back to hanging out at the hawker center for at least one of our weekend meal.
Today’s lunch of choice was the Peranakan Dish: Laksa

Lau Pa Sat (Chinese: 老巴刹; pinyin: Lǎo Bāshā) means “old market” in the vernacular Chinese of Singapore. Lau (老) means old; pa sat is the Hokkien pronunciation of the Persian loanword bazaar (market) which is pasar in Malay.
Lau Pa Sat’s unique, octagonal, cast-iron structure was designed by James MacRitchie. The cast-iron structures were crafted by Walter MacFarlane & Company, an iron foundry in Glasgow, Scotland.

Of course he complained but it’s worth the wait for the Star or is it?…
