Azalina ………. FoOd CuLtUrE

Yes, it’s rough out there. Have you seen the economy? We know! But here’s a little thought experiment to help gain some perspective. Imagine being a young girl of Indian descent born into the lowest caste in Malaysia. Are you imagining? There’s elephants and monsoons, and you’re wearing a sarong. Okay? Now. Consider your options. Or nevermind. Don’t worry about your options because you don’t have any. You don’t, that is, unless you’re Azalina Eusope, a San Francisco street vendor who, with a ton of tenacity and faith in spices, transformed her option-deprived childhood into a nationally recognized Malaysian food empire.
