The boss of popular goreng pisang (fried banana fritter) stall Million Star Fried Banana has died, prompting an outpouring of grief from local foodies.
James Chan, 49, died in his sleep on Monday (Feb 21). The cause of death was a heart attack, Chinese news platform Shin Min Daily News reported.
James’ mother told the newspaper that her son would usually get up at 8am in the morning and open the stall at 10.30am. However, by 11am, he still had not showed up.
Thinking that he had overslept, she went to his room to try and wake him up, but instead found that his hands were cold and stiff.
