Street Hawker. Vulnerable Elderly.
Story of Perseverance.
“I want to preserve this disappearing trade".
A familiar setting. I have walked this walkway along Peace Center hundred times some 17 years ago. Same old cart, colorful tibits, 'wrapper' rolls and a cheerful grin beckoned me to chat him up. "We've been here for 30 years, the only Kachang Puteh stall left in Singapore, we want to preserve this disappearing trade."
"This is passed down by my father, everything is prepared at home. Day in, day out, we are here 365 days a year, no rest. Some day if i can't make it, my wife will tend the cart for me."
