Vietnamese eateries around the island have been feeling the heat in the wake of last week’s KTV lounge cluster (totalling 215 Covid-19 cases at press time). Cancelled reservations and reduced patronage aside, the bosses of said eateries 8days.sg spoke to didn’t receive any nasty comments directed at their nationality.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for a famous scantily-clad Vietnamese hawker known only as Yumi — she opened an eponymous beer and juice stall in Hong Lim Food Centre last August (according to a video she posted on her popular Facebook page with more than 100K followers).
Yumi has had to close her stall and serve a quarantine order at home from July 17 to 31, along with the rest of Hong Lim Food Centre’s hawkers after a cluster related to the Jurong Fishery Port one emerged.
She’s been living in Singapore since 2017 and earned her fame — or notoriety — thanks to a spicy combination of spunk and risqué fashion sense that wouldn’t look out of place at a cosplay convention or sexy night club, all while doling out mugs of beer.
She declined to reveal personal information apart from what’s available on her FB page, citing privacy reasons. “What I want to say, [I’ve] already put in my latest video,” she tells 8days.sg.
