Kneading and shaping dough is second nature to Madam Chua Chay Cheng. The 92-year-old hawker, after all, sold traditional Teochew snacks for more than 40 years.
After her husband, a cook, died in 1971, she became a hawker to support her eight children, who were between seven and 15 then.
Her story of resilience is celebrated by Mr Sinma DaShow, 39, in the last
chapter of his book, Not For Sale: Singapore's Remaining Heritage Street Food Vendors, which focuses on 10 women hawkers. The book's launch is part of this year's Singapore HeritageFest.
Partially funded by the National Heritage Board, the book, which includes black-and-white photographs, took 21/2 years to produce. Co-authored by Singapore-based photographer Jim Orca, 39, it is being sold for $88 on website

A study of 12 men found that glycemic load—distinct from calories or sweetness—can alter brain function and promote overeating. Is there such a thing as food addiction? A study using brain imaging suggests that high-glycemic foods may trigger the same brain mechanism as substance abuse.
Photos from the mean streets of Singpore - an incredible location for street photography. Speaking of incredible - all of the photos are taken with my Fuji X Pro 1, and the 18mm lens - the only lens and only digital camera I have, as I travel around the world. I've chosen to shoot all the Singapore street photography in black and white. The streets of Singapore are more colourful than most, but I feel a strong connection with black and white images. Or maybe I'm just yet another poor tormented artist? ;) Maybe you could decide for yourself...
