Hairdresser Turned Hawker Sells Yummy Burrito-Style Popiah At Telok Ayer Kopitiam
The pandemic pushed her to switch careers at the age of 55.
Like countless new food businesses, popiah hawker stall The Wrap was born out of the pandemic. Hairdresser-turned-hawker Angela Koh, 55, first considered a career switch about six months ago. “It was a pretty hard decision on whether I should change my direction. I’ve been a hairdresser for over 40 years, but the pandemic has really affected my work.”
In August, Angela took the plunge and opened her popiah stall at the hipster-looking Telok Ayer Coffee Shop. The modern, spacious kopitiam has industrial-style black ceiling fans and stools, jazzed up with geometric tiles and marble-print tables.
