    The founder of Wee Nam Kee couldn’t cook chicken rice – but turned a S$42,000 loss into S$1 million profit in 7 years

    Wee Nam Kee founder Wee Toon Ouut died aged 81 on Sunday (Oct 13).
    The Straits Times
    • The 81-year-old founder of international chicken rice chain Wee Nam Kee died on Sunday (Oct 13).
    • Wee Toon Ouut, a printing press owner, bought over his friend’s chicken rice stall opposite Novena Church in 1989 for S$100,000.
    • In his first year as boss, the stall lost S$42,000, but Wee eventually transformed it into a Hainanese restaurant making S$1 million in 1996.
    • Wee told food blog Daniel Food Diary in a 2012 interview that he couldn’t cook, but could “direct the cooks to prepare what I want”.
    Staff and longtime customers of Singapore chicken rice chain Wee Nam Kee are mourning the death of its elderly founder, who passed away on Sunday (Oct 13).

    Wee Toon Ouut died at age 81 after succumbing to an illness that resulted in multiple hospital visits in the months leading to his death, The Straits Times (ST) reported.

    In a 2013 report, ST said Wee suffered from liver cirrhosis as a result of drinking too much brandy while entertaining clients in his earlier days as an advertising executive and printing press owner.

    The businessman would later go on to run an empire of chicken rice stores across Singapore, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Taiwan and the Philippines.

    The business counts celebrities and foreign dignitaries, including former Filipino President Joseph Estrada, among its fans.

    “Today marks an emotional and sad day for all of us,” the company wrote in a Facebook obituary on Oct 13. “(Our founder’s) warm smile and sincere personality will be missed by all.”

    Promising to preserve Wee’s legacy, the post added: “Rest in peace, towkay (boss)!”

    In the comments section, patrons reminisced about their fond memories of Wee.

    From kampung boy to printing business owner

    Wee was born in 1937. His father was a chef on a steamship, while his mother was a housewife who often cooked chicken rice, ST reported in its 2013 article.

    The family lived in a kampung home in Paya Lebar, and Wee attended Playfair Primary and Siglap Secondary School (now Meridian Secondary School).

    The elder Wee would let his son try dishes like steak and cakes whenever he was in Singapore, ST said.

    In the late 1950s, Wee attended night school and obtained a diploma in advertising. His studies were funded by a western advertising agency, where he worked as a trainee account executive and later a production manager, ST reported.

    According to ST’s report, at 24, Wee married childhood friend and badminton buddy Sim Suy Gek, 22, in 1962. The couple had two sons, Liang Chee and Liang Lian.

    By 1973, he was running his own printing business, Harper Press. A decade later, he also became vice president of the Singapore Badminton Association, alongside former Singapore president Ong Teng Cheong.
    (I think Mr Wee was also the founder of Harper Valley Badminton Party)

    How Wee Nam Kee got its name

    In 1989, Wee bought over a friend’s chicken rice stall, located opposite Novena Church, for S$100,000, with plans to sell it after a few years, ST reported in 2013.

    He changed the shop’s first word to his own surname to avoid debtors coming after its previous owner, ST added.

    In the first year, Wee Nam Kee (the stall) was left to run on its own – and made losses of S$42,000, The New Paper (TNP) reported.

    Shortly after, Wee sold his printing business, and found his interest piqued by the stall instead. He turned it into a Hainanese restaurant, and hired chefs to develop new dishes.

    Wee, who admitted in a 2012 interview with local food blog Daniel Food Diary that he could not cook, said he was “extremely good at discerning and tasting”, and worked with Malaysian chef Loh Sang Ling to create the chain’s chicken rice recipe, down to its sauces.

    “I may not know how to cook, but I pay much detail in eating, and knew how to direct the cooks to prepare what I want,” the food blog quoted him as saying.

    According to the 2015 book Street Food Success, the chain uses only chickens weighing between 2 and 2.2 kilograms, and cooks them in the healthier option of onion oil, instead of regular chicken fat.

    ST quoted Makansutra founder KF Seetoh as saying that the chain made its rice from scratch, using Thai rice, chicken stock, and oil infused with browned pandan leaves and herbs.

    Wee would visit other chicken rice stalls to compare his dishes with competitors, and updated his recipe continuously based on customer feedback, TNP said in its report.

    By 1996, the business was making S$1 million in profit, the report added.

    ST said that in 2013, Wee had moved to a HDB flat in Sengkang and drove a Mercedes-Benz.

    But Wee told Daniel Food Diary that profits were not his top priority. Instead, he wanted the food to taste like home-cooked fare made by mothers.

    In its Facebook obituary, the company quoted its founder as saying that “mums cook with passion out of concern for their children.”

    “I always tell my chefs to do the same for our customers,” he added.

    Wee is succeeded by younger son Liang Lian, 56, who has a diploma in printing and packaging from Watford College in the UK.

    He has run the chain’s four restaurants and two stalls here as operations manager since 2001.

    Oh, no! Not Singapore: Malaysia dread possible clash with Singapore shuttlers at SEA Games

    PETALING JAYA - The last thing Malaysian badminton wants is to lose face to Singapore in the SEA Games but that could happen if the men's team do not tread with caution.

    In the draw released yesterday, second seeds Malaysia, led by Lee Zii Jia, face a possible clash against the Lion City in the semi-finals of the men's team event at the Philippines SEA Games from Nov 30-Dec 11.

    In the first round of the eight-team competition, Malaysia have been drawn against the Philippines while Singapore take on Myanmar in the lower half.

    In the top half, top seeds and heavy favourites Indonesia are expected to cross swords with the most improved team, Thailand, in the semi-finals.

    Singapore will be spearheaded by world No. 32 Loh Kean Yew, who pushed world No. 2 Chou Tien-chien of Taiwan to three games before losing in the quarter-finals of the World Championships in Switzerland in August.

    The Penang-born Kean Yew will be a threat to national No. 1 Lee Zii Jia.

    Kean Yew, who defeated five-time world champion Lin Dan of China en route to winning Singapore's first Open title at the Thailand Masters in January, is also expected to form the No. 1 men's doubles partnership with the experienced Danny Bawa Chrisnanta.
    (I think it must be Kean Yew's brother)

    There are improvements in the team since they came under the charge of head coach Mulyo Handoyo, the former coach of Indonesian legend Taufik Hidayat.

    A defeat to the southern neighbours will be a humiliating one for the country.

    Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) coaching director Wong Choong Hann admits that Malaysia have to fight their way to earn their place in the final.

    "Nothing is clear and easy for the men's team, " said Choong Hann, who was a member of the team that last won the gold at the 2005 Games edition, ironically in the Philippines.

    "We have an advantage as we've avoided Thailand but Singapore are still a challenge. We need to work hard as there is no free ride to the final."

    The others in the team besides Zii Jia are Soong Joo Ven, Lim Chong King and Aidil Sholeh Ali Sadikin. They will be joined by doubles players Aaron Chia, Soh Wooi Yik, Ong Yew Sin, Teo Ee Yi, Tan Kian Meng and Goh Soon Huat.

    Even if Malaysia come through the semi-finals, they are unlikely to get past the mighty Indonesia, who have won the team gold in the last five editions in 2007, 2009, 2011, 2015 and 2017. There was no team competition in the 2013 edition.

    They will be banking on the likes of Jonatan Christie (world No. 6), Anthony Ginting (No. 8) and their impressive men's doubles pairs Marcus Fernaldi Gideon-Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo (No. 1), Mohammad Ahsan-Hendra Setiawan (No. 2) and Fajar Alfian-Mohd Rian Ardianto (No. 5).

    It'll be tougher for the women's team led by Soniia Cheah as they may face top seeds and defending champions Thailand in the semi-finals.

    MenQuarter-finals: Indonesia (bye); Thailand vs Cambodia; Myanmar vs Singapore; The Philippines vs Malaysia.

    WomenQuarter-finals: Thailand (bye); Malaysia vs Cambodia; The Philippines vs Singapore; Vietnam vs Indonesia.
