Some time back, this photo caught my attention. It was posted by a celebrity chef on Instagram, relating to a TV show about Hawkers.

Here’s a quiz for you.

There are so many plates piled up high. Doesn’t it seem that they’re on their way to wearing Rolexes and driving Mercedes?

Well, I beg to differ. Let me give a quick explanation…

From the picture, there seem to be around 200 plates.

Selling 200 plates at $3/plate will give $600 in revenue.

Cost of ingredients should be around $1.50 which gives us a tidy profit of $300.

But wait… That’s not all.

Assuming only 4 off days per month, and also assuming a combination of cheap rental and low utilities of $120 per day (I deliberately based my calculations real low for uncertainty. Just to let you know, there are many hawkers that easily surpass this hypothetical figure…)


TA-DAH! We are left with $180 of cold, hard cash.

It’s going to be crazy cooking and serving 200 hungry customers all alone, so two hawkers will probably end up with $90 each.

I’m not finished yet…

Even if you can earn $5000 or $10000 a month as a hawker
Most prefer an office job working in comfortable environment
Hawkers work in grimy and dingy Hawker centres
Wear t shirt and slippers and look unglam
Have to go wet market to buy ingredients and wake up in unearthly hours to prepare food
Last but not least from banker to hawker big plunge in social status
So how many want to be hawkers ?
Of course to each his own ...
