Fans of chwee kueh hawker Peng Ah Bah were dismayed to find that his longtime stall at Taman Jurong Food Centre had abruptly closed in March this year.

Speaking to 8days.sg, he recalls going to the doctor as he was feeling very unwell. “I was admitted into the hospital and the doctors said my condition was very dangerous. My body had a fluid build-up. They did a test and told me it was severe dengue fever,” he shares.
