‘Sad’ Kueh Uncle With Unsold Food At Maxwell Hawker Centre Is Actually Unbothered & Thriving

During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in Singapore, many business owners were affected by the sudden steep drop in business as customers stayed home. Elderly hawkers who are tech-illiterate were hit hard, as they could not jump on food delivery platforms to increase their sales.

One such hawker was the 71-year-old owner of Ri Xin Snack Delights at Maxwell Food Centre, who sells traditional ang ku kueh, huat kueh and the increasingly hard-to-find steamed wah kueh that he makes himself. Known simply as “Uncle”, he went viral online in 2021 after netizen Ng Chun Kiat posted a photo of the elderly man on Facebook group Can Eat! Hawker Food.
