Savvy folks who visit Katong Shopping Centre would know to make a beeline for the basement, where the well-loved Dona Manis Cake Shop has been operating since 1992.
It is famous for its banana pie and chocolate tarts, which are snapped up almost as soon as they are freshly out of the oven.
PASSED AWAY AT 93
On Saturday (Oct 14), Dona Manis Cake Shop announced on its Facebook page that Mr Tan had died aged 93 the day before.
No reason was given for his passing, though the post praised Mr Tan as a “well-known and humble boss (who took the bus to work till the age of 90). Thank you for everything. You will be missed”.
