Maylee Thavat writes: “Making rice noodles – a rare sight in a Cambodian village. Typically one hour of pounding this rice and water mixture results in one kilo of rice noodles that can be sold for $0.25. Opportunity costs for labour intensive, on-farm noodle-making are high especially given the flood of industrially produced cheap and popular MaMa noodles from Thailand in the Cambodian market.”
