Imagine working from 9am to 11pm every single day. That’s what hawkers Rick Koh, 63, and Kristel Gan, 56, do at their stall Dessert Monster. The genial husband-and-wife run the four-month-old hawker stall at Toa Payoh Lorong 8 Market & Food Centre, selling Insta-worthy ice cream and mod chendol and tau hway desserts from morning till late night daily. “We’re new to this, so we do everything ourselves. I’m not an 8-to-5 person. I can work for 12 to 14 hours every day even though I lost 15kg since I started my stall,” laughs Rick, who used to work in fashion merchandising for over 40 years supplying boutiques with Arnold Palmer, Montagut and Daniel Hechter clothing.
