The hot soup has landed him in hot soup.

And now, it turns out that he’s not just a bak kut teh lover, because he’s been to not just one hawker centre after he landed in Singapore, but to four different places.

What a twist.

Bak Kut Teh Lover Charged for Breaking SHN Rules; Turns Out He’s Been to 4 Places Instead

Today, the 34-year-old was charged in court breaking the Stay-Home Notice rules under the Infectious Diseases Act.

He has allegedly been to four places while he was on SHN: Koufu Food Centre at Changi Airport Terminal 3, Peninsula Plaza, Kampung Admiralty Foodfare Hawker Centre (the place with the best-est bak kut teh) and NTUC FairPrice Kampung Admiralty in Block 676, Woodlands Drive 71.

When asked what he intended to do, he said that he is pleading guilty, and “because I already explained everything but it’s like … they don’t take what I’m trying to say.”

He sure sounds remorseful.

The judge has set a date for him to plead guilty later this month and adjourned the case.

If found guilty, he could be jailed for up to six months or fined up to $10,000, or both.

Another Guy Also Charged for Flouting SHN Rules

Lest you think BKT Lover gets a special treatment because of the hoo-ha he created online, you’re wrong.

As long as you break the laws, the long arm of the law is coming for you.

Today, another person is charged for the same offence: Palanivelu Ramasamy, 48, was given a stay-home notice on 21 Mar by an Immigration and Checkpoints Authority officer. But on 30 March, Ramasamy allegedly left his Block 105 Towner Road flat and then took public transport to travel to and from Goldhill Plaza where he delivered newspapers.

Similar to BKT Lover, he would be pleading guilty later this month.
