Staples Keychain (Nasi Lemak)
by Roy Poh
These are food that feed the everyday Singaporeans. Inexpensive, can be taken conveniently on-the-go, without much fanfare. The infamous chicken rice, nasi lemak and breakfast bee hoon are staples that fuel our people - for the construction workers, the film production crew, the elderly after a morning tai-chi session, the CBD office worker, the armed forces, students on excursions, the soccer team, the water polo boys. No matter where and what the occasion is, these foods remind us of the more palatable part of our life.
