Dennis Chew Worked 3 Jobs During NS As He Had To Give His Mum S$500 A Month, Which Was More Than Double His NS Allowance
Dennis opened up about growing up poor on the latest episode of talk show Hear U Out.
Earlier this month, Love 972 DJ Dennis Chew shared the touching story of how his officer in NS stood up for him when he was in danger of being charged by the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) for working three jobs during NS.
In this week’s episode of Hear U Out, the 47-year-old revealed the reason he had to moonlight.
Dennis said, “My family was really poor when I was younger, so my mother was more tight-fisted when it came to our finances. Our relationship was a bit strained when I was serving my NS. I was only paid S$200 plus back then, but I had to give her S$500 a month.”
