Home-based business Ah Ma’s Ngoh Hiang had a serendipitous start. Brothers Desmond, 40, and Melvin Kang, 44, began selling their grandma’s specialty to supplement their income when Covid-19 put their commercial printing business to a stop due to the pandemic.

Desmond turned to his hobby – cooking – to keep himself occupied during Circuit Breaker. “I experimented with new dishes every day. My father kept asking me to make ngoh hiang, but I didn’t want to as it’s very tiring.”

When he finally relented after cooking “over a hundred dishes”, Desmond’s family members suggested that he could try selling it as part of a home-based business. “We thought we’d give it a try, so we started selling ngoh hiang with no expectations.”
