Forced to take refuge in her family’s coffeeshop during a sudden Covid-19 Lockdown, Bonnie (Chen Keat Yoke) is shocked to discover that it is haunted by ghosts of her deceased relatives returning for the Hungry Ghost Festival.
The lass from Cameron Highlands, “Ah Yoke”, as she is affectionately known, became a household name in 2009 when she snagged a runner-up spot on Astro Talent Quest, then subsequently at the tender age of 20, became the first ever rookie participant to win an overseas competition by bagging the Golden Mic at the TVB8 International Chinese New Talent Singing Championship in Hong Kong, which had previously launched the careers of superstars Anita Mui, Eason Chan, Leon Lai, Sammi Cheng and Coco Lee.
Signed by Astro, her next break was when she was cast as “Salted Fish Ah Lian” in Malaysia’s first locally-produced Chinese-language blockbuster “Woo Hoo”. After appearing in several spin-off movies that followed, Yoke returned to her first love of singing, and re-established herself as an entertainer with occasional joint concerts and TV hosting gigs.
Hungry Ghost Diner marks Yoke’s return to the silver screen in a major role for more than a decade.

"...a natural and lighthearted touch, resulting in a unique blend of genres... we are drawn into Bonnie's journey, which gradually unfolds like a beautifully-crafted recipe."
"I hope that this fantastic film will have a chance to be seen by the general public as well as at film festivals through this (NETPAC) Award. Also, I hope that many parents and children would be able to reconcile like in the movie..."
