Sexually-attractive MediaCorp actress Felicia Chin, who quit her NUS business school studies to go back to being an actress, has opened her own cafe.

The cafe, called Mama Shop, is located at the former police barracks at Pearl’s Hill Terrace in Chinatown.

During its opening day on Oct. 7, 2014, it attracted a lot of attention. More than 200 customers showed up as they were excited to see Felicia Chin doing things, such as serve food and make drinks in her own way that is arousing to watch.

However, two weeks after the official opening, Singaporeans from all walks of life are unable to catch a glimpse of Felicia Chin there.

Kwa Cheo Bu, a local, said: “I purposely come all the way here to eat because I thought Felicia Chin will be serving food to me personally. But I heard she is not working full-time at the cafe. Why ah? Isn’t this her cafe?”

“If she serves the food, it will definitely add a personal touch and there will be more business. And it will justify the prices.”

Other Singaporeans have also provided feedback that they are upset that the cafe is called “Mama Shop”.

Yin Du Ren, a Singaporean man, said: “The word ‘Mama’ means ‘an Indian elder’ or ‘uncle’. And ‘Mama Shop’ specifically refers to a convenience store at the void deck owned by the Indians.”

“Then now we have an affluent Chinese woman appropriating the name for her own selfish capitalistic gains.”

“Worse, she take it, use it, appropriate it and gentrify it without acknowledgement of its roots. What kind of things does Mama Shop cafe even sell? There’s nothing Mama about it.”

“This is how Chinese power and privilege is exerted in Singapore.”

A mama shop owner has gotten his mother angry.

This after the mama shop owner, who is the son, suggested that he can probably only afford to pay $800 in ransom if his mother ever got kidnapped.

Zha Huo Dian, the son said: “My mother asked me how much I willing to pay for her ransom if she got kidnapped. I busy at that time serving customer, so I said maybe few hundred dollars or up to $800.”

“And not say my mama shop is a chain.”

That was when the mother went into a fit.

Madam Zha, a sprightly 80-year-old woman, said: “Other people’s mother’s valuation is $2 million, my own son say he can fork out $800 or so. You see lah, you see lah, this good for nothing, raise him so many years…”

To placate his mother, Zha Huo Dian said: “Ma don’t like that lah, kidding only. Come inside lah, stop talking to reporter. And that customer want to pack 10 eggs. Help a bit can?”
