The elderly woman was known for being one of the oldest hawkers in Singapore.

Her Nam Seng Wanton Noodles at China Street in the Central Business District saw snaking, long queues every lunch break.

She started her stall in 1958 at the now defunct hawker centre beside the National Library at Stamford Road.

She then moved to Far East Square, but shifted again in 2022 to a coffeeshop called Che Kitchen near her home in Toa Payoh.

The stall has since closed.
