SINGAPORE: In today’s world, where inflation and the cost of living crisis have made people more mindful of their everyday spending, a certain gentleman seemed to have put all this aside to help an elderly Indian lady by treating her to some food.

“It’s heartwarming to see this white shirt gentleman in Yishun Chong Pang goes extra mile, offer indian elderly to sit opposite him, buy her food, help to take cutlery and chilli sauce. He is smiling thru out the whole process,” Mr CK Yong wrote on the Singapore Incidents Facebook group on Sunday (Jan 14).
