Little India Walkabout 9

This interior shot of Tekka Market was taken from the second storey. There is a signification local Muslim population and meat stalls that sell their products to Muslims are required to display the sign (green/blue globe next to the word 'Halal'). And I am quite certain that there would be no pork displayed or sold anywhere around this market. In other markets, that might be a different case.

Je ne suis pas sure que l'hygiène soit là .
Ayush Basu: Everything is fresh and demand fairly consistent, so nothing much is stored or exposed to the chance of getting spoiled, Martine.

I lite the view from your vantage point, Ayush
Ayush Basu: I was able to stroll around the balcony on the second level and got a number of shots, Ray.
That's really interesting, Ayush - that part of the world is so different from mine...
Ayush Basu: I intended to show something different compared to the urban shots of Singapore that I put up in the past, Elizabeth.

This encouraged me to read about "Halal"
Ayush Basu: Then you probably are already up to speed on that, Lisl.

I'm sure there is a ready supply of fresh meat Ayush
Ayush Basu: Meat and poultry consumption is fairly high in Singapore, Chris.
What you are show-n-telling us, Ayush, is so very educational. Thank you.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for staying with the lengthy post/series, Ginnie. smile

I love your point of view, Ayush. And I am sure this will be only "Halal". From my experience, they are very strict in that matter. I hope this will be put in the refrigerator soon.
Ayush Basu: I think the stock that they start selling in the morning is exhausted by mid day or noon, Astrid. And I surely hope they are well educated about what they are doing.

I think pork would not a "best seller"in such places in any case.
Ayush Basu: In general, it is available but that would be in neatly wrapped packages in air conditioned supermarkets, Alan.
There are many Halal shops here in the UK. I have even seen a Halal equivalent of Kentucky Fried Chicken
Ayush Basu: I would not be surprised, Bill. Those corporations want to maximize their customer base, of course!

I’m sure this is fine Ayush, but it just not appear clean.
Ayush Basu: One need not fret, Chad. There is no live poultry handled here and the fresh produce is sold off in a matter of few hours.
No doubt they do good business,
Ayush Basu: The make brisk sales and clear off their wares by mid day, Tom!
religious meat... are hotdogs safe? smile i like the shot, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: I have no clue! This place is good for photo opportunities but I find myself getting my needs from the nearby supermarket, Elaine.

I must say the operation doesn't look too clean. Pigeon droppings on the shelves on the left and on the roof. Also not much evidence of washing facilities. But since the product is moving fast, I will probably eat it, when well cooked. It all doesn't take away that these kind of stalls always draw my attention.
Ayush Basu: There are washing facilities indeed, Louis. And what you mention, I think, are not pigeon droppings but some kind of accumulated markings which are result of something that got absorbed in to the slabs. I confess I did not take a close look though.
On the left it looks like live chickens were recently sitting there. To see fresh chicken right there seems very unsanitary if that is the case.
Ayush Basu: Live poultry is not brought in here, Care.

your vantage point worked out very well
Ayush Basu: Very kind of you to say so, Sherri.
she is hard at work cutting up the chickens Ayush... it's good that they have to post the signs with the word "Hala" for the Muslims....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Yes, they are required by law to do that and I think it saves a lot of unnecessary questions later, Peter.
A window into her world......good POV, Ayush smile
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Martin.
Interesting information. Thank You smile
Ayush Basu: Very kind of you to say so, CherryPie smile
