At 80 years old, hawker Chow Mun Cheong is still very quick on his feet. At his stall Chang Ji Hot & Cold Desserts at Chinatown Complex Food Centre, he rapidly churns out bowls of delicious ice kacang, dripping with sticky gula melaka syrup, and cups of iced sour plum juice for his regulars. He has been doing this for over six decades, spending most of it working alongside his wife Phang Yoon Jnn, 75. The couple, who has been married for 51 years, conveniently live right above the hawker centre in a three-room flat.
