SINGAPORE — A Vietnamese hawker who ended up selling Indian food due to a bidding mistake has earned praise and support for her resilience after her story drew the attention of the online community over the weekend.

Madam Nguyen Thi Kieu Kanh, 45, a Vietnamese-born Singaporean permanent resident used to work as a cook at casual Vietnamese chain Nam Nam. She opened her stall named Mr Appam at Maxwell Food Centre last December to support her family, after her husband suffered a stroke, 8 Days magazine reported last Thursday (June 16).

Initially intending to sell Vietnamese dishes, Mdm Nguyen accidentally found herself the owner of an Indian food stall instead.

She won a mistaken bid for an Indian food stall at the hawker centre but also unable to change the stall type after realising her mistake.

She did not want to forfeit her winning bid and instead of bemoaning the error, she taught herself to make appam with the help of a friend from Kerala, a consultant chef as well as YouTube videos.

They conceptualised a fresh menu full of inventive fusion flavours.

Appam is a bowl-shaped pancake snack popular in South India and Sri Lanka.

Since TODAY first published her story on Facebook last Friday, the post has received more than 5,600 reactions and 650 shares as of 4.30pm on Monday.
