Hassan’s picture of a payment QR code from his food stall has been shared online, allowing fans to transfer money as a token of appreciation. He expressed some concern about the legality and the continuous stream of money.

While Hassan did not disclose the exact amount he received, he expressed the need to halt the donations at some point.

His family’s stall, Dapur Hassan, in the eastern suburbs of Singapore, has seen an influx of Chinese fans visiting since his standout performance against Thailand, leading to shortages of food supplies.

Hassan mentioned that his family, particularly his daughters, were surprised by the sudden attention and the presence of his face everywhere.
