What do you think?


  1. My parents used to said in the past, nobody knows how much these food seller regardless of hawker or restaurant made. Even their teacher said so, being a food seller is earning more than teacher, they can buy those landed properties at prime location.

    In the past, the stalls are cheaper to acquire and there is many people, crowds who will visit the stalls at night even. Without all these modern extreme marketing but those old marketing methods, are they consider marketing?

    I think it is a pity that the great world amusement park closed down. If it is reopen today, I feel like it will be a hit again.

  2. Woman says “Hello, my name is Soon Puay Keow”

    YouTube subtitles “Hello, my name is some prick”.

  6. Maybe u have to move the restaurant to sand bay resort on a jv basic or a sub branch ,they have high roller there,throwing million of dollars in the casino,winner wont feel a pinch spending thousand of dollars,on authetic s,pore crusine,old way is one thing,change some of the setting to cater to the younger group,fmly member much really support u in running the establisment dont be afraid to changes ,the business need a new breed of fresh air n it will turn the restorant around,yr father in law will be smiling at u for the 3rd generation to take over.

  7. I think what kept the lady to continue the business is because it is very old since 1929. so wasted if just stop and end the business.. the legacy also will die.

  8. Wow wow wow! I immediately shared this video to my friends! Very mouth-watering dishes! A must go restaurant on my next visit to Spore!

  13. From the UK…Oh my goodness I remember Spring Court Restaurant Singapore..I was born in Singapore and to be taken to Spring Court Restaurant for dinner was a big thing especially in my teens many many years ago..

  14. I hope you can pass it to your next generation. This piece of history deserve to be preserve. Wish you and your restaurant well and hope you continue to serve the people!

  15. This is truly incredible story. This restaurant lasted for 90 years and many more to come. Good comfort food… very impressive!! No body makes food better than the oldtimers!!! Generations of tasty food!

  16. OMG, $8 is very cheap for a such elegant traditional cuisine over 90 Y.O recipe (almost like fast food price). Honestly I'm very amazed how tough and brave she was as a business woman. I hoped these restaurant could get michellin stars for genuine classic dishes.

  17. Please delete the only question by the producer… she already said the restaurant was founded in 1929, so if one do the maths should easily determine how old is the restaurant

  18. Well done Madam! Safeguard Chinese cultural and classics. The chicken stuff with minced prawn. Must eat! Birds Nests Chicken and Popiah too!

  19. Saya pernah dijamu sama teman alm suami saya, sangat etnik dan lezat …
