Telling Jerome Chow (right in pic) that he cooks like a grandma is possibly the best compliment you can give him. After all, his four-month-old home-based business, Sticky Lo Mi Fan, is rooted in the 20-year-old’s relationship with his youthful-looking granny, Wong Chui Yoke (left), 85.
“The brand is a tribute to my Cantonese grandmother. She relocated from Malaysia to Singapore in the ’60s and became a hawker to support the family when my grandfather had cancer.
