Search for Hawker Masters begins


THE hunt for a new batch of Singapore Hawker Masters began yesterday with the humble mee rebus.

A simple dish of thick yellow noodles with tofu cubes, green chilli and a hard-boiled egg drenched in a flavourful spicy-sour gravy, it is one of six new hawker food categories in this year's search for Singapore's top hawkers.

The annual awards, jointly organised by The Straits Times and Lianhe Zaobao, are now into their fourth year.

Over the next few weeks, judges will sample dishes in five other categories – the dry and soup versions of fish ball noodles; cheng tng, a sweet dessert soup; rojak, a prawn paste salad; or luak, or fried oyster omelette and nasi briyani.Other categories over the years have included bak kut teh and chicken rice.

Judges will head to the top three stalls in each food category before deciding on the winners.

The awards aim to give deserving hawkers recognition to spur them on to maintain and improve food standards.

They will be presented at The Asian Masters gala dinner at Ocean Gallery, Resorts World Sentosa, on Nov 22. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network

SingTel fire affects phone, TV coverage


A FIRE at a SingTel building in Bukit Panjang has led to mobile, television and phone outages across Singapore.

The Internet service provider wrote on its Twitter around 3.40pm yesterday that some fixed line voice, broadband and mobile services "may (be) affected", and that it was "working to restore service (as soon as possible)".

A spokesman for the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it had been alerted to the fire at 40 Woodlands Road at 2.16pm. The fire, which had been "inside the cable room at level one of the building", was extinguished within 20 minutes of the SCDF's arrival, she added. About 50 people had already evacuated prior to the SCDF's arrival. There were no reported injuries.

Housewife Maggie Goh said she discovered the problem around 4pm.

"My Internet and TV are all down, so I'm watching old movies (on DVD) right now. I was wondering why I was staring at a blank screen," said the 33-year-old. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
