I was on the way home last night and passed by a Chinese Moslem restaurant across my apartment.. The waiter was outside preparing a hotpot (chaffing dish) for a client. He puts coal into the bronze pot and as he pumps in with the iron bellow, the flames burst 2 meters high. Took some shot from the back, and the front and got this.
