The master is back to save the day.

The sun is shining a little bit brighter, the sky is a little bit bluer, the grass is a little bit greener and you wanna know why?

Because our favourite 'char kway teow' stall in Penang is back in business.

Cue dramatic gasps.
According to a report by The Star Online, 77-year-old char kway teow grandmaster Tan Chooi Hong surprised everyone when he set up his stall at a coffeeshop nearby.

His new stall is situated not too far from where he used to set up his pushcart.

The news portal speculated that Uncle Tan fell ill a couple of months back, and his family members had advised him to get some rest, hence his months-long absence.

His absence was felt by many -- especially those who came from afar and willing to wait for an hour to try his famous char kway teow -- and word got out last month that the uncle has hung up his wok for good.

But Uncle Tan, whose humble little char kway teow stall was ranked 14th in the World Street Food Congress 2017 list last year, is back now, so the world order has now been restored.

You can give Uncle Tan a rapturous welcome back by visiting his new stall at 82 Jalan Siam from 11am to 7pm:
