Food for thoughts

(Picture) snapped this at "Sakura" YCK stadium I was at Yio Chu Kang the other day for a meal. The dinning place was one of the two restaurants located at both ends of the Yio Chu Kang Stadium.

We can't blame these vendors for not able to cook and serve right on the spot, probably because of the stringent hyg
