Jack Neo's Daughter Sells Frozen Prawn Mee Soup Inspired By Their Makan Trips

What is it like being Jack Neo’s kid? If you’re his daughter Ethel Neo, that would involve makan trips for prawn mee, a “bonding food” for father-and-daughter. As they used to stay in the east side of Singapore, Jack would bring a young Ethel to his favourite prawn noodle hawker stalls in the east and central areas.

As a kid, Ethel, now 29, had to deal with constant interruptions from her famous dad’s fans. “I remember when I was about seven, I was eating with my dad when a random man just pulled a chair to our table and started eating and chatting with us,” she recalls. “Back when there were no camera phones, people used to ask for [Jack’s] autograph. Now they usually ask for photos.”
