75-Year-Old Uncle In Malacca Struggling To Keep His Business Afloat
In a Facebook post by Allycia Soh, she explained that the 75-year-old uncle had been waving at passerby to grab their attention, letting them know that he sells you tiao. The uncle had mentioned that business is greatly affected by the FMCO, sometimes he only managed to sell off five pieces of you tiao per day. So he will have to throw most of the unsold you tiao away at the end of the day.
The uncle handles everything himself, from preparing and cutting the dough, to frying it till golden brown. Everything is handmade and freshly fried by the hour and selling it at only RM1 per piece! Besides that, he used to sell red bean you tiao and many other fried pastries but because he had too many leftovers from it, he now only sells you tiao to avoid waste. But if you want, you can call him up to pre-order the red bean you tiao too.
