'Tok Tok Man'

Do you remember the ‘Tok Tok Man’?

Imagine working 14 hours a day with no transport means other than by foot, and earning just $2 a day.

That was the life back in the day for this “tok tok” man who pedalled Wanton Noodles and Fishball Noodles for a living. Watch this video by irememberSG introducing a familiar face (and sound) from our pioneer generation!
