Dur­ing his rub­ber tap­ping days, he also woke up early.

“The work­ing hours are al­most the same – work­ing in the rub­ber es­tate and op­er­at­ing a cof­feeshop. As a rub­ber tap­per, I started tap­ping rub­ber from 5.30am un­til 11.30am,” said Chang .

Only two sons Chen Den, 37, and Chen Yunn, 33, are in­ter­ested to learn the trade from him. An­other son works in a glass fac­tory. His only daugh­ter is mar­ried.

With age catch­ing up, Chang is glad that his sons are help­ing him run the fam­ily busi­ness. They started to pitch in a decade ago. Be­tween them, they make about 300 roti canai a day and more on week­ends.

His wife also helps by mak­ing

Chang loves roti canai so much that he learnt to make it from a friend be­fore open­ing his own shop. — CHING YEE SING
