Eng Huat grew up in a large family on the notorious streets of Tanjong Pagar in the sixties. Although he remembers the occasional gang fights sweeping from one end of Duxton Road to the junction of Neil Road, the one thing that impacted him the most as a young boy was the experience of living in abject poverty.
Most of his siblings had to quit school early in their teens to help put food on the table. Being the youngest, he was given the chance to finish school. Like many youngsters living in one of the poorest quarters in town then, Eng Huat had only simple ambitions in life, one of which was to finish school fast, get to work, and never go to bed hungry again.
To help pay for his overseas education, Eng Huat worked as a waiter, a cook, a restaurant manager, and a postal service worker throughout his student days in the USA.
Eng Huat started his internship at KLRU-TV, a Public Service broadcasting company in Austin, Texas, doing production work on live and taped shows. On his return to Singapore, he had a rich and diverse career in multimedia designing & programming, data broadcasting, and business development. He has worked in various firms, from small joint venture companies to big companies like Philips Singapore and NTUC Income. Currently, he is semi-retired and managing some own and partnership businesses.
Eng Huat joined the Workers’ Party in 2006 and helped the party in the General Elections that year. He then joined the Hougang Constituency Committee the following year, helping to organise grassroots activities and to take care of the needy residents in Hougang.
Eng Huat participates actively in church-based and ad-hoc social and community work. He likes to gather friends and like-minded people together to help the underprivileged in Singapore, and is a firm believer in the Child Sponsorship programme.
Eng Huat believes that political diversity is one of the key building blocks of any vibrant first world country, and he hopes to do his part in giving a voice to the ‘silent’ majority in Singapore. He hopes to help build a diverse, mature, and vibrant political landscape in Singapore.
Believing in the pursuit of simple solutions to life’s complexities, Eng Huat enjoys art, music, social work and quality family time.
