Mother Travels 1 Hour Every Day To Send Food To Widowed Daughter For The Past Three Years

Mothers have unconditional love for their children regardless of how old they get. Most of them would go the extra mile to help their children live comfortably.

It has recently come to the attention of netizens that a mother in Singapore has been willingly traveling from afar by bus to visit her grieving widowed daughter and send her food every day for the past three years.

According to Zao Bao, a woman in her 70s has been appearing outside a corner unit at the seventh floor every single day.

Residents in a Bedok Reservoir Road HDB flat said that the elderly woman would knock on the door while calling out her daughter’s name, which usually goes on for about two hours.

All that effort was made just to see her daughter, and to hand her the food she had brought along.

It is learned that the dedicated mother usually arrives at the HDB flat at around 4 pm and leaves at about 6 pm. She has never failed to ‘report for duty’ every day for the past three years.

One of the residents who declined to be named told Zao Bao that the daughter of the elderly woman is a widow in her 40s.

“The grandmother said that ever since her daughter’s husband passed away, her daughter’s temperament took a drastic turn. She would stay indoors the whole day, not wanting to come out from her house. That is the reason why the grandmother comes over every day to deliver her food to her daughter.”

Reporters from Zao Bao visited the HDB flat on February 24 at 4 pm and spotted the elderly woman holding a plastic bag standing outside a housing unit.

She was seen knocking on the door while calling out her daughter’s name. However, the door remained firmly shut despite her endless shouting until her voice turned hoarse.

Tired from the shouting, the elderly woman retreated downstairs and sat on a stone bench on the ground floor of the HDB flats to take a rest.

She then made her way back up at around 6 pm and resume her pleas. This time, the door finally opened after 15 minutes of an almost begging tone to call for her daughter.

It is reported that a woman with a thin figure appeared in front of the door and the elderly woman instantly forgot all of her weariness and displayed a happy look on her face upon the sight of her daughter.

She handed over the box of food and bread to her despite being ignored and not invited into the house. She stood outside the house as she watched her daughter eat the food she brought in delight.

Half an hour later, the elderly woman made her way back home with an empty box and a big smile on her face.

Before the grandmother left the HDB compound, Zao Bao was able to have a short interview session with her. She revealed that she takes the bus from Toa Payoh to Bedok Reservoir Road every day just to deliver food to her daughter.

If you didn’t know, the journey from her home to her daughter’s house takes about one hour each way.

She said,

“Ever since her husband passed away, she does not leave the house on her own anymore. If I do not come over, how would she willingly step out of the door to have a meal?”

Wow, this goes to show that a mother would do just about anything for their children. We salute her for being a dedicated mother and we pray that her daughter would find solace in her husband’s passing so that she can put her mother’s heart at ease.

What are your thoughts on this?

    I think the HDB should get a place nearby for this dedicated mum to stay.
