Photographer's Note

During my visit to Singapore I noticed so many eldery people (some are even 70s!!!) working as " cleaning service " at restaurants or malls. I do not quite understand, but once i chatted with a mid-aged woman, she told me that because its the job that nobody else (read as, young people) wants.
Several times I met old people selling packed tissues at the hawker centre.

I saw this old woman sitting on a wheelchair by the passway, to Science Centre Singapore. She had a board marked selling tissue papers, one fo 40,c 4 for $1. All the time when I was there, she was just nodding down. Not sure if she was sleeping.
Seems like this is such a common "scene" in busy Singapore.
Does anyone there care?
