Recently, a netizen’s post on Facebook caught our eye when he declared that the hawker running 97 Nasi Lemak — which opened six months ago at Old Airport Road Food Centre — looks like Taiwanese-born actress Vivian Lai. The very next day, another netizen headed down to the stall to check it out for himself. His verdict? “Nasi is lemak, and babe is pretty!”

“I first heard about those posts from my friends. I had a good laugh,” hawker Ellis Phua, a mother of three, says. “But the next few days after the posts went up, we got a [better] crowd. You could see some guys in the queue taking extra glances [at me],” the 41-year-old adds.
