“She is so nice and sweet and never forgets to move our shoes away when she’s cleaning the floors. Whenever I hear the sounds of water, I will go talk to her and help her out to make it easier for her,” Bhuvana told Stomp.

“I’ve seen her cleaning downstairs too and have told her that I’m very impressed with her,” she added. “I know that Singapore is a very clean country but I’ve never seen anyone cleaning the entire HDB block from top to bottom!”

I retired more than a year ago and that was when I managed to find spare time.

I wash the block about once every week and take about an hour to clean all 11 floors.”

One of her neighbors, a Mr Lin, was quoted in Stomp as saying, “She’s using water from her home to wash the block. There were some cat faeces at the block before but Mdm Feng cleaned it all up by herself.”

Netizens were full of praise for the tidy and auntie.
