One of these wishes was made by 43-year-old Ms Jane Wong, whose wish is to bring her 86-year-old Parkinson-stricken father, as well as mother and domestic helper, to Gardens by the Bay for sightseeing and lunch. Journalists from Lianhe Wanbao, with the help from sponsors Gardens by the Bay and Peach Garden, fulfilled Ms Wong's wish by bringing her family to the popular Singapore attraction and lunch at Peach Garden Noodle House.
