One way to spend your birthday is to throw a huge party.

For one man in Singapore, known only as Chua, he did that just.

However, he also decided to invite very special guests to his birthday celebration.

Threw birthday party, invited elderly cardboard collectors

According to a Facebook post by Happy People Helping People Community on Nov. 1, Chua invited 36 elderly cardboard collectors to his birthday celebration.

The oldest was a 94-year-old woman.

The party took place at 73 Hillcrest Restaurant, along Hillcrest Road in Bukit Timah.

Here are some photos of the event:

In the Facebook post, one elderly lady known as Koh was “so happy that she cried”.

She told them that she could use the money to buy diapers for herself and her aged foster mother, who is currently very sickly.
