|3. Indian rojak used to ply the streets in Singapore.|
The images were captured from Foodage TV Episode 2 (shown on OKTO Channel) where Andy Lim described how he waited outside the five-foot way of his home for Mr. Sultan's Indian rojak and the wonton mee pushcart man with his bamboo stick tick-tock call.
He also recalled the pop 60s music explosion when Cliff Richard and the Shadows invaded Singapore with their twanging guitars and new Fender sounds. The heat generated by the music was so intense concert patrons had to buy ice-cold, bottled, soft drinks like Sinalco, Green Spot, Framroz, Red Lion and F n N drinks (image 4) to cool their hot and soaking bods.
|4. With Shirley Nair on Philips Records (now Universal Music Singapore).|
|5. Kacang puteh or fried peanuts with other tidbits.|
Back to the documentary, Andy discussed the close proximity of his home to the Queens' Cinema where he watched movies from the 50s and 60s and how the kacang puteh man stood outside the Cinema to sell his array of peanut goodies to the patrons.
|As MC with The Velvetones: music first, food n drinks afterwards.|
