Mandopop star Jay Chou made a surprise visit to the Balestier outlet of Founder Bak Kut Teh on Saturday afternoon (Aug 25).

Stomper Vivi was at the eatery at around 2pm and snapped some photos of the 39-year-old celebrity, one of which showed him drinking from a coconut.

Chou was also seen posing for pictures with the eatery's founder, Mr Chua Chwee Whatt, who was celebrating his 73rd birthday.

Vivi said: "Jay Chou was with his bodyguards.

"Only the boss got to to take pictures with him. His bodyguards stopped any strangers as I think they didn't want his lunch to be disturbed."

On its Facebook page, Founder Bak Kut Teh also shared a photo of Chou and Mr Chua, who was holding a hamper.

A caption said: "Very honoured to have Jay Chou come celebrate our boss' birthday."

Opened in March 1998, Founder Bak Kut Teh Cafeteria along Balestier Road is known to be a favourite haunt for celebrities.

Besides Chou who is a regular of the eatery, it is also frequented by Chow Yun Fat and Eason Chan.
