Yumi revealed it has been a habit since she was a child that she had liked to wear sexy clothes because it made her feel more comfortable. Yumi also believed that it is her friendly attitude that attracts customers.

Saying goodbye to Hong Lim Market

As the saying goes, nothing lasts forever. After operating her beer stall for more than a year, Yumi has since decided to close the stall and move away from the hawker center.

When a Zaobao reporter visited her on 2 December, Yumi was reportedly packing up the remaining items in her stall.

Yumi said that in the past, she did everything on her own, and the long working hours tires her out, so, she had decided to shut down her business.

“I think I will miss the other hawkers here and the delicious food they cook the most,” said Yumi.

After shutting down her beer stall, Yumi revealed that she would focus on making videos and becoming an influencer, “I like to shoot videos that are related to food and scenic spots. I don’t think I will be selling alcohol in the future, but I will still be selling cashew nuts online.”
