Yes, it’s that time of the year again where you can convince yourself to ditch the diet for three days (or more) and go all out.

And if we’re talking about bak kwa, then you’d definitely have considered Lim Chee Guan, Singapore’s top few bak kwa places before.

Except, you know, the queue could be quite off-putting.

After All, Bosses Used To Send Their Workers To Queue For Them

If you remember, a huge hooha was created in Singapore back in 2017 when migrant workers queued up for a share of their Lim Chee Guan bak kwa.

And it wasn’t even for them.

Their bosses paid them $5 per hour to queue overnight at the outlets.

While migrant workers were happy at the chance to make some extra money, migrant workers groups weren’t.

To them, this practice is simply a cheap labour and demeaning to the workers.

Back then, the Ministry of Manpower told the media that employers are not “encouraged” to send their workers to work on jobs that were specified in their Work Pass and nothing more.

Ah Hock loved Michelle and asked her, ‘Ai stead mai?’ in the 90s. Today, he tried again but would it work? Prepare some tissue paper and watch their love story here:

But guess what? Don’t worry if you’re not allowed to pay your workers to queue for you anymore.

Because queueing for Lim Chee Guan bak kwa might just be a thing of the past.
