For Deepavali, this is how a 5-year-old boy shows love to his “uncles at work”

Updated: Feb 15

To someone else, it might look like just a regular construction site for the Cross Island Line.

But to five-year-old Nathan Ji, what he sees are “uncles” –  his term of endearment for migrant workers – who are exposed to the elements as they build the upcoming Serangoon North MRT station.

Uncles in need of shelter on a rainy day. Uncles who would enjoy a cold drink in the blazing heat. Uncles whom he wants to share a delicious snack with.
