Rising competition and the labour-intensive nature of making these cakes by hand mean local bakeries like these are dwindling.

In Singapore it was dying.But here in Indonesia,hundreds of companies like Lek Lim have been closed down every 2 years remembering how hard is the competition in the market as Indonesia have a lot of labor that eat this kind of cake very often in the morning before they go to work.Would love to visit it as there is no such mentioned in the tourist guide books and I wanna try how difference is between Indonesian and Singaporean style 'kueh'

Erase everything I type about ISIS soldiers and KGB fighting Saudi Arabian soldiers. I think Joseph F and the invaders should compromise and end the war. I think the invaders may colonize Eridanus, the Swan, a dark green people planet and Jupiter if they end the war. I think Joseph F is Saudi Arabian and German. I think the ISIS soldiers and KGB will have to fight guerilla warfare with the Saudi Arabian soldiers if Joseph F and the invaders do not compromise and end the war.
And also tempe n bakso are from Singapore.

I smell lots of jealousy here. If you want to have more visibility in the world, then work at raising the standards of your own country so that international news organisations set up shop there and give you more focus. Not gripe and whine when someone else receives attention.
I have NO idea what the ingredients are...but...I WANT SOME!!!! lol
Maybe the guy could work with home delivery companies? Like is there a Singaporean version of Skip The Dishes/ UberEats? Or a Singaporean version of those monthly delivery companies where you pay $10 or $20 monthly for treats?
