The family preserving a dying Singapore tradition

0

Pretty local Singaporean cakes called “Nonya kuehs” are traditionally handmade and are a popular treat.

But automation, rising competition and the labour-intensive nature of hand-pressing these cakes mean traditional bakeries are dwindling in numbers.

For almost four generations, Gavan Sing’s family has made Nonya kuehs and they are determined to keep the Straits-Chinese tradition alive.
