Guys, remember when we were all mourning for the loss of our favourite street food after news of the stalls in Pudu’s Glutton Street or Wai Sek Kai was burnt down? When it was established that no one was injured, the first thing that crossed netizens’ minds was the loss of those yummy food that has been around for decades. Even our parents have eaten there!
Well, you will be glad to know that you don’t have to mourn anymore because we’ve got good news for you! According to Oriental Daily, the 12 stalls that were damaged by the fire will be given a new lease of life. Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has approved reconstruction plans for Wai Sek Kai and once the blueprint is done, the stalls can be reopened in two weeks’ time… Unless something suddenly happen lah! Choi!
This has come as a relief to the hawkers who earned their living on the street as previously there were rumours that the street would be shut down after the fire. However, after careful consideration and discussion, the plans have been approved for new and improved stalls.
Fong Kui Lun, the Member of Parliament for Bukit Bintang said that these new stalls would be neat and orderly with independent water and electricity supply as well.
He also wants to beautify Wai Sek Kai and will propose a plan to turn the street into a tourist attraction. That’s because the food street is chock full of history and is one of the best places to get traditional street food!
The news of the reconstruction of their livelihood is absolutely great for the famous chee cheong fun, crispy fried chicken, Hakka noodles and various other hawkers. They were initially worried that they would lose all their customers as rumours of their fire spread but now they see it as a “blessing in disguise” and hopes that DBKL would further upgrade the street.
Now, we can’t wait for our favourite stalls to reopen and we get to stuff our faces with those yummy food again! Supper, anyone?
