This "tar pau" uncle runs a "mini-hawker centre" at Holland Close. Mr Freddie Soh, 76, wakes up at 5am every day to buy dishes from various food centres in the district and resells them for about 30 to 50 cents more per item. The scrumptious spread includes steaming boxes of porridge to freshly made nasi lemak to kuehs.
His customers include young adults who grab breakfast before heading to work, and elderly residents who have trouble walking beyond the estate to buy back food.
Mr Soh also provides a free delivery service for some elderly residents who are too frail to leave their homes, or gives away the food for free to the needy.
He has been doing this for four decades, and his service caters to more than 100 residents daily.
