Vegetarian Stall Lady, Depot Road


This lady operates the Vegetarian Stall behind her. She hardly speaks any English. I speak virtually no Chinese (Mandarin or dialect) apart from being able to order food items, ask for less chilli and such like.

Yet, all my interactions with her have been pleasant. This was taken Saturday lunchtime. Her most brisk business is in the morning – her bee hoon is very popular. So during her low periods, she sits down, often conversing with other workers in the coffeeshop. I can understand that. She an older lady and the coffeeshop can get very muggy on a hot day.

And yes, I do like her bee hoon.
