Rich Mate Poor Mate II

Johnny Chan - Investment bank chief experiences the life of the elderly poor.

Johnny Chan was born to an industrialist family, and is known as one of the ‘wealthy third generation’. After graduating overseas, Johnny has worked in multinational investment banks. He describes the investment amounts he has handled as ‘astonishing’.

In this episode, Johnny will live with poor elderly people in a shabby cage house; work as a street hawker in a dawn market; scavenge on the street; and work in an undesirable cleaning job. He will reflect on how the elderly can live the rest of their lives with dignity.
