For several weeks, a Filipino teenager has been playing drums and blasting loud music from his home in Block 608, Choa Chu Kang Street 62.
Despite numerous requests from neighbors and the authorities to lower his volume, he has adamantly refused to do so. MP for Choa Chu Kang Alex Yam urged residents to be more tolerant to him as he is a ‘special needs’ child:
“Is it more acute because it is a foreigner family? Has anyone tried to approach and clarify the situation? Does anyone know that the person drumming is a special needs person in a special school? Did anyone try to find out that the family is trying to save up to soundproof their place? Just so that their son to develop what they believe is his innate talent despite his special needs?”
However, according to information posted on his Facebook, he studied in Si Ling Primary School and is currently studying in Ngee Ann Polytechnic. He has worked at Baraka Spa Healing sanctuary Health and Wellness before.
