      In cool weather, restaurant owner delivers blankets to those sleeping on the streets in Chinatown

      SINGAPORE - While many are sleeping comfortably at home in the cool weather, some people spending the night on the streets get by without a blanket.

      The sight of an old man in Chinatown shivering while trying to sleep moved Mr Francis Ng to action last week.

      Since last Thursday (Jan 4), the restaurant owner has been giving out blankets to those sleeping on the streets, mainly in mature estates such as Tiong Bahru, Redhill and Toa Payoh.

      He estimated that he has given out more than 100 blankets so far. They cost around $10 per piece.

      In the early hours of a rainy Saturday morning (Jan 13), The Straits Times followed Mr Ng, 44, on his solo mission to do good. In about an hour, he delivered nine blankets in Chinatown to mostly elderly men.

      Some of them lie on benches and reclining chairs, while make do with a piece of cardboard on the ground.



      The heartwarming act came amid the cool spell in recent days.

      The Jurong West area recorded the island's lowest temperature of 21.4 deg C on Friday (Jan 12), noted the National Environment Agency in a Facebook post the same day, as Singaporeans continue to experience cool and rainy weather due to a monsoon surge.

      The daily minimum temperature at other locations ranged between 21.7 deg C and 23.1 deg C.

      Mr Ng, who owns the House of Seafood restaurant in Punggol, said: "Some of them are regulars here, they know how to move around and sleep only late at night to avoid the police and social workers."

      Some woke up briefly to acknowledge Mr Ng, who sometimes struck up a conversation with them. Others just turned back to sleep.

      One of them was carpenter and odd-jobs worker Chua Yong Sia, 61, who has been sleeping on the streets in Chinatown for the last three to four years. He said there are about 10 to 20 people sleeping in the area every day.

      "If not for this blanket, I would be very cold," he said, referring to the one given to him by Mr Ng. He was using his bag as a pillow.

      Said Mr Ng: "I just hope that by doing this I can make a difference in my own small way."

      Can tell that the government ish too comfortable and far apart from the peepur to realise this. Could hab scored points but this ish just another example that they are just sitting around and taking taxpayers money.

      If really do good deed no need photographer follow him around and take pictures. Clearly this is to gain +ve media attention for this guy. I wouldn't be surprised if he were to pop up later on in, perhaps, the next GE?

      If do good deed must let every tom, dick and harry then it is no longer doing a good deed but just a farce for getting attention.

      As for your school project, it could be someone wants to score the brownie points and let media know. Or maybe even just to show something to the world.

      Yes could be from RC. Maybe use him as a candidate for MP in that area...

      I don't like it when such "feel good" articles come out on so called sinkieland MSM. It always foreshadow something is going to happen further down the line with the said person. Usually political in nature in most cases or to sell the person for something...

      Still, good to force RC/PAP spend money on these homeless, instead of them pretending these people don’t exist.

      House Of Seafood
      We started in a small restaurant located at 180 Yio Chu Kang Road. Our Founder, Dato Francis Ng, saw elderlies picking up cardboards by the roads to earn a living. He passed them money, but the elderlies rejected his kind gestures. Thus, he decided to come up with a seafood restaurant in order to provide job opportunities for elderlies as restaurant waiters and waitresses did not require any minimum qualifications in order to work here!
      ....
      A customer walked in and ordered our signature Black Pepper Crab. We served her as how we had served others. After eating, the customer requested to meet our chef. She said she really enjoyed the fare and she was very impressed with the flavours and freshness of ingredients used.

      The next day, our restaurant was featured on Lian He Zao Bao and apparently the customer was a female reporter! That night, the whole restaurant was packed with people! Business was so good that we had to even borrow chairs from the restaurants next doors. The queues were getting longer and longer by the day, with many waiting for an hour or more to get a seat. That night, we were not prepared for the overwhelming crowds and there were so many orders misplaced – business was way too good for us to handle. Immediately after we


      Dato Francis seem to be always bumping into 154 reporters... slumkia losers like moi never see reporters before.
