Parent and examination

Postby ali123 » Wed Oct 23, 2013 4:51 pm

I met my neighbour, very old couple yesterday. According to them, they were chased away by their daughter who stay in a big house in Bukit Timah. The reason is that both of her kids are having examination this month. Currently the old couple is staying in an HDB which the condition is worst than the foreign work dormitory. There's load of junk inside the HDB. I believe that they are going to stay there forever with the above valid reason which I cannot believe this happen in Singapore. The old couple is trying to get grant from government but is not successful because their daughter is a highly paid law lecturer in NUS. Poor old couple. Sometime I saw them as a karung guni. :? what is wrong here. I know how they feel but no choice, this is the life. Parent has to suffer for their children.

IMHO, may not be fair to conclude base on one-sided story.

And that junks do not just suddenly appeared in anyone's home, probably the owner is a hoarder.

So they ran out of space in their HDB and wanted to store their stuff in the daughter's big house?

Maybe some truth. Parents normally don't slime their own children.

The HDB is a dumping ground for unwanted things from the big house. Parent keeps everything belong to their children or they are scare to be scolded for throwing away those things. For your information, throwing things from landed property is not easy and costly. For HDB, we can request Town council to help to dispose junks - FOC. My point is that should a civil servant show a good example to us. I understand that old folks are taking good care by government but should we take advantage over it.

Law lecturer in NUS to treat parents like that. Karma will strike her. I heard of another story where the son and his wife and child live in a Holland Village bungalow but son's parents live in HDB. Why? The son abuses the mother physically and she has no choice but to live in a tiny hdb flat. God know how they feel. Rich people also have their own problems.

The old uncle is very ill but they refused to call their daughter because they did not want disturb their grandchildren who are having their examination now. I think he does not want to die in the big house which may bring bad luck to their daughter. The old aunty has to clean and feed him. Their daughter has a maid and I do not understand why their daughter is so pamper her maid and refuse to let her to take care her old parent. Life change. Maid is more important than parent. This is not easy to get a good maid. So need pamper. If not, who clean the big house.!!!.
