According to some eye witness reports, a poverty stricken auntie who is usually seen selling tissue packets to residents in Hougang while carrying a picture of her severely ill mother was discovered to be spending her money on a jackpot machine at a small community casino instead.
The woman reportedly goes around the neighborhood, approaching passersby to tell her story about her sick mother in an attempt to prey on their sympathy. Unfortunately for her, on some nights, she was spotted entering and exiting a neighborhood casino.
When eye witnesses entered the casino premises, they found her glued to a casino machine and spending her “hard-earned” money on a game of jackpot.
One eye witness related, “Last month I bought 2 dollars worth of tissue packets from her. She showed me a picture of her mother on her phone. Her mother had suffered from a stroke and was confined to bed. She owed the hospital $2000 in bills and medications.”
