Saw this elderly flattening tin cans along the road side where our $100,000 gleaming cars drove by at West Mall junction near Bukit Batok.
Each can sells for about 8 to 10 cents and its far better than gathering heavy bulky cardboards whereby each kilo sells only for 10 cents.
In our first world country with almost zero pension scheme for the elderly, its a nightmare retiring here.
Those who fell ill often felt guilty chalking up a bill at the hospital and many wish they are dead than burdening their own stressed-up children.
