Then the 58-year-old owner of the popular Ye Lai Xiang Cheng Tng stall suddenly collapsed and died of a heart attack.

Mr Lim’s death came as a blow to his many loyal customers, who said they would miss his cheng tng as well as his good-natured character.

His death comes soon after another local hawker legend, Mr Thomas Ng Ba Eng (left), of the famous Eng’s Noodle House, died of a heart attack on June 17 at the age of 71.
