SINGAPORE: The Tan Chin Tuan Foundation is celebrating the birth centennial of the late banker and philanthropist Dr Tan Chin Tuan by granting the wishes of those aged 100 and above in seven nursing homes.

Among the 19 centenarians, one wished to have a “Tiger Balm” while another wanted a dozen cans of milk powder.

For four other centenarians, all they wanted was lunch and a party for all their friends, plus a special treat of durians.
