Singapore – Shoppers in Northpoint City in Yishun were shocked after a section of a ceiling collapsed suddenly. There were no injuries reported.

Member of the public Jaya Letchumi took to Facebook on Saturday (Mar 6) to highlight that the roof area of a café named Kueh & Mee had fallen. The stall is known for its Indonesian cuisine like kueh and mee rebus.

Ms Jaya included photos of the incident showing a gaping hole on the stall’s ceiling while its menu signage had fallen to the counter.

“OMG, the roof collapsed at Kueh & Mee restaurant at Northpoint. Just happened,” said Ms Jaya. “Where is the safety of employees and customers?” asked the concerned individual.
