In his post he wrote that he asked the auntie of the stall why she kept the price of her food so low.

She replied, “I need to keep the cost low, as there are many old folks living here. $2 food”.

Daniel then asked her how she makes money since she sold her food at cheap prices.

She added, “just enough can already”.

Many netizens wrote in with rather sad comments, yet they still had high praise for the auntie.
