No, she's not calling the cops on me...

We are still in the Pasir Panjang Whole Centre. As some people have commented, it does seem like a lot of haphazard activities are going on behind the scenes. 

 

This will be the concluding shot for this brief, but eye opening (for me at least) series.

Fabulous series, Ayush.

Markets...even wholesale ones...fascinate me, and I love visiting them with camera in hand.
Ayush Basu: This was certainly an eye opener for me. I ended up buying nothing but have a lot of interesting shots.
No doubt she's got everything under control! Fun series, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Yes, everything seemed to be working like well oiled machinery; no hiccups, Elizabeth. Thank you for sticking through the whole series.

They seem to know what they're doing Ayush, that's the important thing
Ayush Basu: And I got a brief glimpse of that as well, Chris
Tallying is a tedious job, but it has to be done Ayush! Fine capture.
Ayush Basu: She did have a scowl on her face, Richard so I think you have a point. Thank you
I liked all the food shots, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much Mary, this will be the last shot for the Wholesale centre.
Another fabulous photo with a lot of detail going on in the background.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much for scrutinizing the activities, CP.

what IS that? a shrine in the background? lol that's a haphazard activity in there for sure tongue
Ayush Basu: I think (I am not sure), this is a Taoist influence. Typically all such businesses will have a small altar with the hope of having these gods remove all obstacles to the business. Whatever works for them, I suppose.

Sometimes it is better NOT to see behind the scenes grin....
As long THEY know what they are doing, things will be okay, I guess....
Ayush Basu: I agree with you Astrid grin
The inspectors do the main job of ensuring that foodstuff with harmful agents (pesticides, insecticides, chemicals, etc) do not make their way inside Singapore. These people on the other hand, are not concerned with a little bit of dirt and are trying to send out the produce with maximum freshness.

I wonder why he is wearing gloves. Maybe the accounts are full of dirty bookkeeping smile
Ayush Basu: Haha, good one, Louis.
Actually he would sorting the produce (wearing the gloves) and periodically update the records, during which he neglected to take off the gloves. But I like your explanation better wink
It sure seems better than the alternative, Ayush, which would be doing nothing!
Ayush Basu: A very "glass is half full" way to see it, Ginnie. Thank you for that comment.
loving this Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you kindly, Ronky

Ha ha nice caption Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I think she was annoyed that she got distracted by me while she was busy counting the loads of bank notes and coins, Chad.
They certainly don't do tidy Ayush
Ayush Basu: The inspectors look more for what's inside the fruit and vegetable matter and not so much on the exterior conditions, Bill. I suppose, for some reason, it looks much more untidier than it actually was.
Obviously a bit of everything1
Ayush Basu: This is a large place and caters to 70% of Singapore's needs, so definitely yes, a little bit of everything, Tom. Thank you for the visit and comment.

An interesting visit, Ayush
Ayush Basu: It really was and I am grateful for it, Lisl
Ha ha.. Look at toukehsoh.
She said, don't you come and kacau me here. wink
Ayush Basu: Not sure if she is the towkay, LC but I know what you mean. Thanks for the comment smile

It's been fascinating to see. Sometimes, though, when it comes to food preparation, it;'s best not to know! Years ago, when I was installing telephones, if I ever had to go into a restaurant's kitchen, what I saw meant I never went back to eat there!
Ayush Basu: I do agree with you. And I too would be apprehensive about finding out a bit too much more than what I bargained for, Alan.

Packing fine art for shipment - great bit of insight for us.
Ayush Basu: Yes this was an eye opener for me too. Thank you for looking in
