Mr. Chua


Mr. Chua salvages copper wire from old electrical motors.

The work is painstaking but he can make $10/kilogram from the results and it’s a nice excuse to sit in the shade of the old banyan trees near the Kallang River.

It’s not his main source of income – more of a hobby. When he’s gathered enough motors and has some free time, you might find him here.
