Bedok Kueh Stall Ah Ma Still Opens For Business Every Day Despite Fewer Customers During ‘Circuit Breaker’
On Thursday (16 Apr), a netizen named Yvonne raised the plight of an elderly stall owner in Bedok. She had noticed the elderly lady after passing by the stall daily while going around the neighbourhood.
Here is her post in full:
Determined to keep her business running despite challenges like old age and low sales during this period, Yvonne wishes the old lady receives more support.
Here’s what she knows, and how you can possibly help.
Stall experiencing poor sales during ‘Circuit Breaker’
The elderly stall owner manages the Kwek Seng Huat Coffee shop at Bedok Road.
Her stall offers nonya kueh, chwee kueh, baos, dumplings and other breakfast items. Unfortunately, Yvonne observed that she’s usually sitting alone outside a stall with unsold items due to a lack of customers.
The thoughtful netizen shared that the ah ma struggled to stand up, but continued to run her stall anyway. Like most of us, she needs to keep earning money to get through this difficult period.
Yvonne has consistently bought her food items, but she doesn’t think it’s enough. She urges locals nearby to help because business is poor.
How you can help
The Kwek Seng Huat Coffee shop is an 8-minute walk from Tanah Merah MRT station. So if you happen to take the East-West Line and pass by the area, dropping by for a quick visit won’t hurt.
