Singapore - Hawker food heritage on the wane

A very common refrain among Singaporeans is that "this stall's food doesn't taste as good as before" - as cooking skills honed through the years by the "old masters" generally do *not* get passed down to the younger generation, as many Singaporeans do not see selling street food as a viable career option.
