If I am a foreign tourist, I am sure I will be very amazed with the hawkers who seem to move like some automated robots. Have you ever observe those more famous hawkers when they prepare the food?
Some twitch their bumps, some act like they have tics (an involuntary body movement), some looks like they are rapping and so on.
The above photo is the wantan mee seller at the corner of Jalan Free School and Jalan Caunterhall. I had to wait an awfully long time for my take-away noodle. Hence, I had time to snap the photos.
Each night, he probably produces hundreds and hundred of plate of wantan mee. What I found annoying about him is his habit of taking out a few strands of noodle and add it to another plate and take another few strands from another plate and the whole motion goes on and on.
This guy in blue singlet is frying oyster omelette. Count the eggs tray? Each tray takes 30 eggs. So, probably he used up hundred over eggs. The wok is very hot and you can see him squirming while frying. His other partner is in-charge of delivering the oyster omellete and fried beancurd. He seems to be floating!
These hawkers are what make Malaysia special. Each hawker have their characteristics and speciality.
