Two months after the passing of Madam Tang, Petaling Street’s legendary Muah Chee Queen, netizens are still paying tributes on social media and cherishing her long-lasting culinary legacy.
Her well-known chant, “Yat lao yat lao, wat luet luet,” which was her distinct call to customers, is fondly remembered by her loyal clientele and social media followers alike.
Recently, a heartwarming video surfaced online, showing a man, believed to be Madam Tang’s son, continuing her work at the iconic stall. In a touching tribute, he plays a recording of his mother’s signature call from a speaker.
News clippings that Madam Tang proudly displayed on her stall, continue to decorate the cart, serving as reminders of her celebrated craft.
However, what’s missing now is the lady herself, whose warm personality and dedication brought the stall to life.
The sad news of Madam Tang’s passing was first shared on the muah chee stall’s official Facebook page on May 31.
Muah chee that moves people’s hearts
Online tributes from heartbroken netizens are pouring in. One user shared, “My heart feels heavy. Madam Tang would always give us extra muah chee. It’s a pity that she’s no longer here.” This echoed the sentiments of many who cherished their memories with her.
Another longtime customer expressed their sadness, “I’ve been buying from Madam Tang for many years.” Their words underscore the void left by her absence in the hearts of her loyal patrons.
Another netizen reminisced, “Madam Tang would always prepare fresh muah chee for my child. We can’t find her unique Ribena flavour anywhere else.” Their tribute highlighted the irreplaceable culinary legacy Madam Tang leaves behind.
The food scene of Petaling Street undoubtedly lost a gem, but Madam Tang’s spirit and her renowned muah chee continue to live on.
