The man who lived in a Singapore forest for 30 years
Singapore is known for being one of the world's most highly urbanised countries, with no lack of gleaming skyscrapers and luxury apartments. But for one man, that couldn't be further from the place he called home — a makeshift shelter in one of the country's forests.
Earlier this month, the story of Mr Oh living in a forest went viral in Singapore - with many across the country reacting with shock. It all began on Christmas Day when Mr Oh was stopped by officials and found to be trading without a licence.
He was selling leafy vegetables and chillies he had grown - after the pandemic caused him to lose his job selling flowers at markets. At that moment, a charity worker was passing, and noticed he was being spoken to by officials who had confiscated his vegetables.
Vivian Pan said she felt "angry" on his behalf, adding "I didn't want him to go home empty-handed that day". "But I understand that, in terms of the law, they can't sell on the street," she added.
She filmed the incident and posted it on Facebook, where it quickly went viral — and Mr Oh's plight was eventually brought to the attention of a local member of the parliament.
