People of Singapore Part 18 & 19

Another double bonanza to make up for (soon to be) lost time:

A fisherman steers his boat towards Clifford Pier. This is indeed a rare sight in industrialized countries. Indeed, this was taken quite early in the morning.

An old man with a very hunched back pushing a trolley in Chinatown. People barely offer him a look of sympathy as he slowly wheels the merchandise across a road. I am reminded that Singapore has the fastest growing elderly population in the world, which explains the government's efforts to encourage child bearing.
