When I was schooling in Malaysia, rather than taking packed lunch from home, my lunches mostly came from my school canteen which were ridicously cheap (when I look back) and comparable to street food in Malaysia. On occasion, I caught ladies working from the nearby offices sneaked into my school canteen for lunch (despite against the school policy). How disrespectful eh? Anyway, the canteen consisted of 4 -5 food stalls selling food from sandwiches, air batu campur (shaved iced with syrup and jelly) to nasi lemak (coconut rice with curry). It’s worth mentioning the hokkein mee (chilli prawn noodle soup) in my school was quite popular among residents in the area. Hence, every recess time was like a trip down the hustle and bustle of Asian street markets.
