Benjamin Kheng and Annette Lee’s ‘The Caifan Song’ Is The Anthem We Never Knew We Needed
Can we get more of this and that, and this and that?
If you’ve ever been struck by that pang of anxiety as the harried auntie or uncle at the cai png store turns to you, tongs in hand and an expectant look on their face, you’re not alone.
After all, almost everyone has ordered mixed rice for lunch (or dinner) at least once right? Even homegrown singer JJ Lin chose cai png for his “first “meal out in four months” after getting his first COVID-19 vaccine shot in August this year.
Anyway, ordering cai png is a quintessential Singaporean experience, which is probably why local multi-hyphenates Benjamin Kheng, 31, and Annette Lee, 29, have come up with Mandarin pop song ‘The Caifan Song'.
