Never Forget Our MaMa Shop Stories

This automata features a traditional Mama Shop in the early 80s. A female customer walked in the shop and found herself in the middle of a chaotic chase of a cat and a rat. The owner of the shop, Uncle Lee, scratched his head in confusion wondering what the commotion was about as he could not see behind the counter. His little grandson was trying to reach for the money bucket as he was helping him to run the shop. We chose this story because Mama Shops are unique in Singapore and nowadays there are not many traditional Mama Shops left. We want to remind the people in Singapore to: Never Forget- Our Mama Shop stories.
