The real-life crazy rich Asians of Netflix’s new hit reality show Bling Empire are constantly shown hanging out in opulent mansions, high-end designer boutiques, or public places that they booked out for their own private parties.
However, Singaporean cast member Kane Lim’s favourite hangout spot when he comes back to the Lion City is a lot more down-to-earth.
“I love hawker centres, they’re my favourite!” Kane chirped in a Zoom interview with 8days.sg this afternoon (Jan 21). Other than Newton Food Centre, which is near where he lives in Singapore, the devout Buddhist and vegetarian also goes to the hawker centre next to the Guan Yin temple at Balestier, which only serves vegetarian dishes.
Of course, it’s been a while since the 31-year-old had his favourite local fare, no thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic getting in the way of his twice-yearly visits home. Kane has been based in Los Angeles for the past eight years, where he invests in companies that deal with real estate, hospitality, wellness, and renewable energy.
