Sales Director Who Used To Earn “Six Figures A Year” Now Sells Nasi Lemak From $3.80
He pivoted to the hawker life after his salary was affected "quite significantly" when his hedge fund firm was acquired by a rival.
Nestled in a kopitiam on 802 French Road — yes, that kopitiam where a man was filmed dramatically challenging police officers to a fight before being tased — you’ll find newly opened hawker stall Mr & Mrs Nasi Lemak. The mister and missus, reimagined as cutesy mascots on the stall’s signboard, are 40-year-old Ken Chong and his 35-year-old wife, Sofie Tsoi. Both quit their high-flying corporate jobs to open the stall mid-pandemic on July 7. They serve nasi lemak (obviously), with some newfangled add-ons to complement the usual suspects like fried chicken wings and ikan bilis.
