Meet your host!

Chan Yer Hoe (left) and Lim Bee Kheng (right)

Hello! My name is Chan Yer Hoe and this is my partner Lim Bee Kheng. We have both been working at Lee Wee & Brothers for over 20 years. Despite our ages, we are healthy and strong, and we take pride in being two of the most senior members of the team. Prior to joining this company, I used to work in the electronics industry. I found that I could adapt to my current job quickly because I enjoy doing technical and hands-on work!

Tell us about what you do!

We work six days a week, starting at 7am and ending at 2 or 3pm. My main role at Lee Wee & Brothers involves securing otah in banana leaves, and I take great care in ensuring that each one is wrapped meticulously by hand.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Work has become a way of life for me, and I find fulfillment in helping out wherever I can. Retirement has never crossed my mind, and I am grateful for the kind gestures shown to me and my team by our bosses, who even provide buses to fetch us from Hougang every day.
