“And do not worry … hawker centres are very clean and there is no danger of getting sick from the food. After all, this is Singapore!’
1. ANY food sold in ANY hawker centre might be contaminated IF there are no proper checks being conducted by the owners/chef/etc.
2. I am not saying the stall holder is at fault but I am not saying that he is not too. The fact remains that a great mishap had happened and this is not the time to pinpoint on who but rather on what can we do to prevent the occurence of this issue again.
3. Some of them are even avoiding ROJAK from ANY stall elsewhere in Singapore too. [ link here and here ]. What, do you think the bacteria only affect ROJAK ? There are others who began to turn to other types of food and its contamination level while the rest turn to talk about the hygienic conditions of the environment.
4. Hell, even fast-food outlets have hidden dangers stored in their own delicacies. Read here for more details.
Gone were the days where most mothers/wives will cook at least 85% of their time and eat out only on Sundays. These days, you can count yourself lucky if come across such a family. Most of us, through our hectic lifestyle, have no time to cook on our own and have to rely on packed foods from outside shops for our daily consumption.
I miss those days when I can eat lunch/dinner personally cook by my grandmas when they were around. I still believe that home cook food are still the best for our body and growth, especially with all the new sickness emerging and circling around.
