Like other seven-year-olds, he started school this year, but he is no ordinary Primary 1 pupil.
He not only acts as the eyes for his almost-blind 63-year-old grandmother, but also he also helps her sell newspapers every day in Ang Mo Kio.
And Ah Boy, his granny’s nickname for him, does so without complaint.
After school, he is by his grandmother’s side, dealing with her customers, collecting money and giving change. And he stays there till she sells out or closes at around 10pm.
Unlike other kids his age, Ah Boy can’t afford to go for activities like swimming lessons, but he doesn’t mind.
“I’m happy as long as I’m with my grandma,” he says.
