Just spotted this Chinese newspaper hot off the press.
Could someone kindly translate this?
This cash giveaway at Air Itam is the talk among hawkers at another 1Malaysia free dinner tonight at Perak Road at the back of Van Praagh Road.
Blog contact SamG is at the scene. He spoke to a hawker, who said he is getting RM3000 per night to prepare 200 plates, which usually goes for around RM4/plate elsewhere. (The 1Malaysia hawkers are having a good time! And so are the diners who are tucking in – especially as they don’t have to listen to any speeches.
P.S. But another contact on another night said a hawker mentioned that she was being paid RM1000 to prepare 300 plates of char koay teow.
