Meet Mr Tang

Despite suffering from Parkinson’s disease, 64-year-old Mr Tang leads a disciplined and active life. If not out and about in the neighbourhood, he signs up for social activities organised by volunteers and other community organisations. The former cleaner discovered an interest in photography after an event organised by CRT. He had lived in Dakota since he was a child, but has no qualms about moving to Cassia Crescent. If he missed anything, it would be the wide, open spaces. He recalls a favourite past time sitting on the bench under the trees, observing the goings-on of the neighbourhood and watching the planes fly past.
