The name Pak Li was chosen as a tribute to all the gracious Pak Cik and Mak Cik who contributed ideas over the years that helped refine our recipes to what they are today, and also due to the facts that Ali and Ah Lee are very common names of Malays and Chinese.
It also happened that the three personalities who were our inspirations at different stages of our lives have surnames Lee (Li).
- Bruce Lee for his creativity and dedication to perfecting the art of kung fu
- Lee Kuan Yew, for his vision and can-do attitude in getting Singapore to where it is today
- Li Ka Shing, for his business acumen in building his empire
