Mr Wang starts work at 3am every day and drives the lorry, with his wife accompanying him. At night, he leaves it parked at Changi Beach Park. The couple sleep on sheets of cardboard on the back, use a portable gas stove to cook meals, hang their clothes on the side of the lorry and use nearby public toilets to wash up and brush their teeth.

"Although we don't have much, we have each other so we are very happy," Mr Wang told Wanbao. He added that the couple go for walks on the beach when they have the time.

If you are poor and unhappy, you can still hope that wealth will bring you happiness.

But if you are rich and unhappy, what can you do?

Man, who lived on lorry with wife, in alimony lawsuit
« Reply #6 on: May 26, 2016, 03:53:34 pm »
http://mypaper.sg/top-stories/man-who-lived-lorry-wife-alimony-lawsuit-20160525

THE man who hit the news in March for living on a lorry with his pregnant wife was detained early this month, for failing to appear in court thrice for a lawsuit over his ex-wife's alimony...

... After his plight was reported, Mr Wang managed to get a two-room rental flat at Bedok North last month.

However, when he headed to the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA) on May 5 to update his address, he was detained, Wanbao reported yesterday.

Mr Wang explained that he had lived at a rental flat in Macpherson many years ago but moved out to live on his lorry after that and had no fixed address. The court sent letters to his old Macpherson address and he did not receive them.

He was detained for 12 hours before a friend bailed him out.



This lorry man's story got many twists and turns.  :o

I think ICA should allow people to change their address to 'homeless' to avoid problems like this.  I am certain there will be a strong demand for it.

Rental flats are 1-rm HDB flats rented out by HDB directly.  The tenant must rent it with another person.  Either you find someone to rent with you or HDB gives you a list of waiting applicants and you call and jio a stranger to live with you.  There are certain requirements to fulfill like income and they must not occupy another flat.

If he had been staying with his uncle previously, the uncle could have passed him the letters.  Somehow, I think he is just trying to siam lor..

Not many women are willing to live on a lorry with a man and the lorry doesn't even belong to him!

could be many reasons eg. he has a fetish for living in a lorry or he is a loafer aka rolling-stone (and I don't mean a rocker) or he ate out once too often at joo chiat and got caught etc

But if you are rich and unhappy, what can you do?

splurge on branded bags n designer clothes. drink potent liquor. go to pte clinics to get relaxant shots. but actually all those can't make one happy lol.
