Fish And Chips Ah Beng Style In A Container

This time photographed with my Asus Zenfone 3. Fish and chips Ah Beng style includes Hash Brown and a sausage. Unconventional but I like.

The cafe is halal though and the chef and kitchen crew appeared to be Malays. The owner should be Chinese as I saw the red altar of the Chinese land or ground deity outside the kitchen.

Photography Tip: Add a little corner vignetting to make the widescreen format (16:9) of the phone more constrained and intimate.

Asus Zenfone 2, ISO 102, f2, 1/120 sec.

Nasi Lemak At Hotel Farm Ville

One more from Farm Ville Homestay in Sekinchan the other day. Nasi Lemak from Farm Ville’s cosy cafe in a metal shipping container. Everything including rooms and toilets are in a metal container. Was cooling during the rainy weather. Not sure if the air conditioners can keep up during hot days.

Rice is presumably from the touristy Sekinchan Rice Factory nearby.

I have included the two ladies (local paddy farmers’ daughters) at the back to show it is not the deserted Hotel California it appeared to be and also to show the casual atmosphere (eg; her leg on table). You can make food shots atmospheric by including elements of the surrounding environment to tell a story.
