2022 was the year Singapore regained some semblance of normalcy after two years of battling Covid. 

We could dine out in large numbers again, our borders reopened, and more international brands set up outposts on our sunny island.

As we bid adieu to 2022, we take a look back at our top stories of the year. 

Here are five of our most viral reads.

1. Top story: Nyonya Pok Pok Kay’s Peranakan food

Did you read about hawkers Sarah and Leon Sng behind Nyonya Pok Pok Kay? 

The family-run hawker stall in Pasir Ris serves authentic Nyonya fare that’s not only hearty, but made with love. Dad Leon Sng cooks up a storm, while daughter Sarah Sng calls the shots in nearly every other part of the business, from operations to social media.

Three out of nine new entrants to the list were hawker stalls.
