Meet your host!
Hi everyone! My name is Neow Bee Kuan and I’m a proud 25-year veteran of the crabstick production industry. Working at my factory, it’s been my job to know a bit of everything – from weighing, packing, storing and exporting – plus handle a range of products from siewmai (a type of dumpling) to youtiao (dough fritters). We work as a team, because no single individual can stay on top of all the customer orders that come in.
How long have you been with the company?
I started my journey at DoDo’s former factory down the road – and thanks to modern processes and machines, it’s made our lives so much easier. Before this, I was actually involved in the electronics industry, but a few of my friends recommended me here and it eventually became a good fit.
What is a typical day like here?
A typical day at work starts with everyone clocking in at 8am – but during busy times, we’d often stay until late night to complete our tasks together. Even though it can be tiring, it’s become part of the daily routine. That’s why I find that life should be taken day by day, taking it one step at a time.
Meet your host!
Hello, we are Chong Ya Mei and Cheong Li Jun – two Malaysians from Penang and Ipoh. We both arrived in Singapore in 2003 and 1988 respectively, and have been working together for close to 20 years now.
What is a typical work day like here?
We usually start our day with packing, sorting and exporting our products to stores. We then move on to the more hands-on aspects, such as spreading fish paste onto beancurd skins, or stuffing meat into tofu.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
A good day for us is a day without any hiccups, where everything goes according to plan. We also enjoy the occasional company celebrations – from retreats to buffet lunches during special occasions like Chinese New Year, Mid-Autumn Festival, and Christmas. During our birthday months, we also receive little cakes and simple gifts.
