He was not hopeful when he went back to look.

A man lost a bag containing $13,000 meant for his brother's funeral after eating at a bak kut teh stall in Jurong West and believed it was gone for good.

But he got a surprise when he returned to the stall.

Stomper Bay recounted: "On Feb 4, my uncle visited Hong Ji Claypot Herbal Bak Kut Teh at Block 557 Jurong West Street 42 for lunch.

"He was carrying a lump sum of notes worth about $13,000 in a bag, which was very important to him as the money was meant for his brother's funeral. However, when he left the place, he forgot to take his bag with him.

"By the time he realised he had misplaced his bag, an hour had already passed and he was at another location. Being the person he was, my uncle was pessimistic and did not think his bag would still be at the stall.

"However, my uncle still went back to check if the bag was still there, but it wasn't.

"Therefore, he went to ask someone at the stall that was beside the table he was sitting at. The person directed my uncle to Ms Woon from Hong Ji Claypot Herbal Bak Kut Teh.

"Fortunately, Ms Woon had kept the bag safe and all the money was intact.

"My uncle is grateful to Ms Woon for her kind gesture and uprightness."

Faith in humanity restored.

For anyone looking for a job, Ms Woon is now hiring.
