Someone asked me about this the other day. Drama~!! Got this from the Sunday Times.

Family drama at Popular bookstore after chairman's son quits

Managing director Wayne Chou quit after spat with father, who is chairman

It was a scene that could have come straight out of a Hong Kong drama serial.
Mr Wayne Chou, the young managing director of Popular Holdings, was having a particularly heated argument with his 74-year-old father Chou Cheng Ngok, who is the chairman of the company.
Suddenly, in front of members of management and staff, the younger Mr Chou shouted 'I quit!' and stormed out of the room.

Soon after, the company issued the official announcement on Sept 7 that has set the normally staid world of book-selling abuzz - that Mr Wayne Chou had left the company. Still, this dramatic fallout at one of Singapore's most well-known chain of bookstores was a long time coming, according to sources The Sunday Times spoke to.

PS: I love Popular leh. Heard that the Ops director has also resigned. Wonder if my ex-boss is still working there??
