SINGAPORE - Diners at a hawker centre in Bedok were treated to a delightful bargain of discounted char kway teow on Thursday (Aug 9), as part of a stall's National Day celebrations.

The Liang Ji Kway Teow King hawker store, located at Block 58 New Upper Changi Road, was selling fried kway teow for 50 cents per plate to diners who brought along their own eggs. For those who did not do so, they were still able to buy the dish at a discounted price of $1, down from the original $3.
