Jackie is a retiree and the eldest in a family of nine. At 92, he has outlived them all, despite not having eaten vegetables since he was a young man. What does Jackie eat? Follow Jackie to his favourite and affordable fish porridge stall at Macpherson. In the same episode, James, the family cook, reveals where he goes to get fish that’s fresh and cheap. And meet Derrick whose dream is to feed Singapore with free vegetables. He has set up a self regulating eco system that uses super worms to fertilize his soil for his vegetables, all grown in white Styrofoam boxes standing outside his HDB flat.
