"My name is Giam Yong Hua, I am 65 years old this year. I picked up Carpentry when I was at Changi (Prison). I’m pretty good at it.
We made antique furniture in there. Carving was done by another department, after which they would send the pieces to us for assembly. We assembled things like cabinets, which they would sell once completed.
There was once I had a big cut on my hand, and the police officers were shocked because there was a lot of blood. They sent me to Changi Hospital. But all they did at the hospital was to wrap up my wound and I came back. I became more careful from then on.
