Local actor Chew Chor Meng had a memorable encounter with a young fan recently.

The two also posed for a photo together at the fan's request, which Chew posted on Instagram on May 23.

Chew shared the conversation that he had with the boy:

(This] little boy asked me,
Uncle are you the one on Channel 8 television?
- I said yes.
- Then can I take (a) photo with you?
- I said can, but hor after that you have to send (the photo) to me okay?
Just like that, we took a photo.

Chew also hashtagged the post with 'thankful', 'little boy is very cute and very polite', 'maybe in future he will say that he grew up watching my shows', and 'I posted without getting his permission, hope he's not angry'.

The picture was taken at the Yishun outlet of Chew's 888 Mookata chain, which he co-owns with fellow celebrity Dennis Chew.

Many netizens praised the cute photo and Chew's down-to-earth attitude. Several also said they had indeed grown up watching Chew's dramas on television.
