He shared that the elderly man makes about $300 per month and urges the public to go and support him, as business has not been very good recently.

Here is what he said

Meet Ng Teak Boon, 90 years old.

Ng sells ice cream outside Sim Lim Tower. Not Sim Lim Square. He used to sell normal ice cream like many ice cream vendors. Ice cream with biscuits or bread. He don’t sell them anymore.

What Ng sells nowadays are those ice cream sticks type of ice cream and Cornetto. Business is slow and he makes a couple to three hundred bucks a month.

He lives alone in a HDB rental flat at Geylang Bahru. He is on the the Silver Support Scheme and receives a few hundred bucks every quarter from the Government. (This scheme payout is from $100-$900 every quarter and the payout differs based on the applicants assessment. I understand Ng receives $750).

He has five children and I do not want to share here why they did not look after him.

Jcch Julie Cheong bought me doughnuts for tea break. I therefore pass to him my $5 savings from the tea break, on top of the $1 for my ice cream stick.

He think he can live to 100 plus. Hope he is right. If you happen to pass by here , do buy a couple ice cream sticks from him so that he can live to realise his dream.

So, get an ice cream stick from Ng Teak Boon outside Sim Lim Tower. A little kindness from us is good for our souls too.
