This is how the story goes:

Ting, an EyeEm shooter from Singapore, met these two guys while he was shooting a local production of the Chinese opera. He didn’t take much notice of them at first, but after 3 days found out that they were always sitting together and helping each other out with getting extra chairs for their legs.

He approached them and asked if he could take a picture. They immediately put their arms over the other’s shoulders and posed for the camera. They told Tingthat they have been staying together for quite some time in one of the rented flats that is provided by the Singapore Authority for the lower income citizens. Andthey love to spend their evening together to hunt for Chinese opera or Getai around the town area where they stay.

Ting was so touched by their friendship that he told them to wait for him for the next day. He printed an individual portrait of them, handed it over and took another shot of the two friends holding their portrait.
