CNY-Rat-8

Roasted chicken, duck and pork can be found at several such commonplace market stalls. Although these items are found all year round, this stall on the early morning of the eve of Chinese New Year, was doing particularly roaring business.
One can also tell that consumption of plastic packaging is almost unfettered in Singapore.

Je ne mange jamais de viande, cette photo ne me met pas en appétit.
Ayush Basu: I can understand your sentiments, Martine.

I'll take a big serve of the Duck, please.
Ayush Basu: I am quite sure this variety is available all year round, Ray.
Before reading your text, Ayush, I immediately thought about how they must not have gotten the memo yet about not using plastic bags anymore. (sigh)
Ayush Basu: Yes, I think they are so used to the convenience of it, Ginnie.

That looks like some wonderful meals out there, Ayush. Indeed the plastic bags will take a long time to get rid of. I re-use them over and over when I go to the market.
Ayush Basu: They make short batches of them and I think they are sold out within the day, Astrid. With a little planning, we can certainly avoid generating more plastic waste.

This looks like big business Ayush. Although one day they will have to address the plastic issue
Ayush Basu: At the moment, customers are addicted to plastic and the customer rules, Chris.
Shame about the plastic! Mind you there is still far too much of it here
Ayush Basu: A rather short sighted state of affairs, Bill.

What gives the glossy orange colour Ayush?
Ayush Basu: Good question, Chad - I think it is the effect of having been glazed with something before the roasting process, there are also some warm lights pointing at the meat.
nice pic, Ayush! all of new years seems so red!
bummer on the plastic bags!
Ayush Basu: With a little planning, we can certainly avoid generating more plastic waste.
Thank you for your comment, Elaine.

There are people that are difficult to wean off plastic bags. Our government has made a law that plastic bags should be payed for. I re-use until they start tearing apart. Other people buy new ones every time at the till, which means that the old ones were abandoned or hopefully in a bin. In the rainy season when sewage systems and rivers come down, it looks awful.

Oh, for a nice roasted duck.
Ayush Basu: With a little planning, we can certainly avoid generating more plastic waste. The similar law is here but people are resistant to change in habits, Louis. And I think the charge should be increased significantly for the customer to feel a pinch.
Certainly looks good enough to eat smile
Ayush Basu: I have no doubt about that, Tom. I have tried the chicken several times myself (not from this particular stall though).
there seems to be a lot of delicious cooked meats at this market stall Ayush....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Chicken, duck and pork are the standard offerings, Peter.
Not dissimilar to the scenes around where I work, Ayush smile
Ayush Basu: Not that different then, when it comes to food, Tom smile
