SUNGEI RD VENDOR SUFFERING FROM STOMACH PROBLEM BEGS GVT TO GIVE HER A NEW LOCATION

I am really unhappy. I have no income since the closure of Sungei road market.

For the last week, I have gone to Toa Payoh, Ang Mo Kio, Chinatown to look for suitable places to sell my wares. A fellow Sungei road market vendor has been helping me. No luck so far.

The rent is beyond what i can afford. They are charging $50-60 a day, and there are restrictions on what we can sell. On a good month, I made $500-600 a month in Sungei road.

These few days have been hectic. It is not helping my stomach problem that I have been suffering from for the last 10 years. This is also the reason I left my job as a hawker assistant and turned to Sungei road market.

There, I was comfortable sitting at the stall making some small money for my expenses. My father was a vendor there too and I started by helping him.

Now I eat more simply. Some fried vegetables and eggs. No eat out and stay at home.The future is worrying. I really hope the government can give us a new location to help us make a living.
