  • FROM THE ARCHIVE: This series first aired on TV in 2015.

    In the second episode of Don’t Call Us Poor, Hong Chuan Chuan is 7 months pregnant with a husband whose temper cannot be controlled. The impact of the violence at home is evident in her two daughters, and with a new baby on the way, the stakes are even higher.

    About the show: Don’t Call Us Poor is a ground-breaking series on low-income families in Singapore. Over four months, five families in Bukit Merah invited cameras into their lives, allowing fly-on-the-wall access as they navigate the ups and downs of life on social assistance. What emerges is a vivid portrait of a little-known and little-understood world.

    Sky disgusts me. What kind of man takes allowance from his in-laws and refuses to commit to a full-time job to improve his family's life?

  • Pet Tang  (2 days ago))

  • Tim in Singapore  (May 6, 2019))

    Mr Sky is truly useless. Wife beating, lazy, unhealthy without any willingness to improve himself or his family's condition. He tells the camera he hits his wife while laughing? That's just crazy.

  • Azharil Azizi  (May 6, 2019))

    Stop having children before you financial secure

  • AS  (May 12, 2019))

    I was thinking that, if you know that you don’t have the money to take care of yourself then don’t have children, it’s not taking away their right if they want kids go ahead, but in my opinion if you don’t have money then wait until you do to have kids or maybe only have one.

  • Werty Kool  (May 12, 2019))

    Tell urself that if ur Husband is the same and u have the same circumstances
