While Ah Toh is finishing her Wok full of succulent Hakka Noodles down in the kitchen, Towkay Lau, today’s Banker at the Fan tan Table, has persuaded Foo and Foong to place their bets for just one more game. The banker takes 30% of the winnings and, as rich as he is, Lau is always happy to add to his already huge fortune.
Facially, Lau is a very kindly personality who sticks with his Chinese attire every day, never having adopted Western ways. Underneath the grandfatherly pose, he is a ruthless businessman and allows nobody to stand in his way. Beware that friendly smile!
