Photographer's Note

Street vendors cooking up meals on the spot is commonplace all over the world, and especially popular in Malaysia.

The uncle whipping up 8-10 portions of a stir-fry rice-flour dish occupies a sidelane next to a florist shop near market street in Muar town. During the Chinese New Year period, waiting lines can be over half an hour as he continuously chruns out the 8-10 portions every 5 minutes.

"Only in the last 3-4 years has popularity in this dish as take-away breakfast boomed" he chats while stirring, "When I reluctantly took over from my mother more than 20 years ago, it was quite a slow and easy going business" he continued while juggling refills of condiments and ingredients with his wife from a van parked out of camera view on my right. (RM3 is about USD 0.85)
