Bukit Panjang Hawker Offers Customer Free Food After She Says She Lost Her Wallet

Stall Owner From Senja Hawker Centre Offers Free Food After Customer Says She Lost Her Wallet

It is not easy to find selfless acts of kindness in society.

However, one Bukit Panjang hawker was kind enough to give a customer a free plate of food when she asked for it.

In a social experiment, the customer had informed the hawker that she lost both her phone and wallet, and thus could not pay for her meal.

Once the food is prepared, she gives it to the customer.

Customer thanks hawker for offering free food

Upon receiving the food, the customer comes clean and admits that she did not actually lose her wallet — she simply wanted to see how the hawker would react.

She then pays the hawker for the food — and even gives her an extra S$58 for her kindness.

She tells the hawker that she can use the money however she likes, including giving it to others in need.

The hawker initially rejects the money. However, she eventually accepts it and thanks the customer.

Hawker says it’s her duty to feed people

The customer then asks the hawker a few questions, such as why she chose to help her and if she does this often.

In response, the hawker notes that customers will always pay for their food. However, if someone without the means to pay approaches them, she will not force them to pay.

To her, she has to “feed people”. Thus, this act of selflessness comes naturally to her.

When one user remarked that no one helped them when they really had no money, the OP shared that this is why they want to highlight kind business owners so that more people will support them.
