Guided by award-winning journalist, Rachel Ng, join us as we visit Singapore's ubiquitous hawker centers. Peer through the curtains of hanging poultry or behind columns of bamboo steamers, and you'll see the diverse faces of the cooks and their calluses-harden hands steadfastly preparing affordable meals to feed millions each day. We'll explore how these formerly itinerant food vendors became such a vital part of the growth of a country after it parted ways with its colonial rulers in the 1960s. A beloved institution since before Singapore's founding in 1965, the hawker culture was recently inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
