So attached was he to his rojak stall that he made known his wish to his children that he wants his funeral cortege to drive past his stall at Whampoa Makan Place.
Mr Lim Ngak Chew was the founder of popular Balestier Road Hoover Rojak Stall. His rojak comes with ingredients including century egg, jellyfish and ginger flower.
He died on 22 August after suffering from colon cancer since 2014.
Even after he was diagnosed with cancer, he would still visit the stall twice a week and observe his customers at the stall while sitting a few tables away and chat with regular customers.
According to his daughter, Mr Lim fulfilled his last wish on Fri by visiting his rojak stall one last time and even had his last taste of rojak. He was happy and contented.
In 1961, Mr Lim started his business with just a pushcart in Toa Payoh. He settled down at a spot in Balestier Road in 1971 after he got his hawker’s license.
He moved to Whampoa Drive Food Centre in 1978 where the stall has been until now.
The stall is so popular and good that it has been awarded the Bib Gourband for the past 2 years by the Singapore Michelin Guide.
In 2013, Mr Lim was recognised as a Hawker Master for Chinese rojak by the Singapore Press Holdings.
