    I’m a big fan of Malaysia’s diversity.

    When I was in high-school, I’ve always been ignoring all the racial issues that I hear in the news. Particularly because, my folks and I live happily in each other’s presence, regardless of our beliefs. But everything has changed. I now study in a local University, where I’ve come to realise, these ‘issues’ should be deplored before it is too late.

    What I didn’t understand was, why can’t the senior broods of this country see things they way I do? Should it be happiness seeing the society divide? After all, the solution to the problem is a very simple formula. And it will always be a win-win situation in the bigger picture, if they were to set things right.

    So I decided to not wait for them. I hope my ideas in effecting the society, would overcome these ‘tribulations’.

    I love your writings, by the way. Keep up the good work.


    • Dear Dev,

      Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts. Good on you for standing up against those who preach hate and division – that is the only way we can reclaim the Malaysia we’ve lost. Thanks also for your kind words; always nice to know someone enjoys your writing!

    One small step by a woman, what a giant leap for Mankind!
    Who lives if Malaysia dies? Damn hell, those extremists have forgotten that there is but only one race: the human race.

    In the ‘About’ section, you say you’re an ‘independent trader’…what do you trade ?? Novels ? Didn’t know there’s good business doing that.

    Regarding the Sri Nyonya Restaurant, it’s no longer @ Taman SEA, having been relocated some years ago to Taman Paramount I think.

    Since you’re from Ipoh, wonder if you have any information on how there came to be a road there named ‘Jalan Chin Choon Sam’ ?
    I like to know more on the history of the Chin family tree, pre & post-Chin Choon Sam era. It seems that other than Chin Kee Onn, little is known on the other Chins from the same ancestory.

    • Hello,

      In answer to your question about Chin Choon Sam, please see my latest blog-post: The Story of Great Grandfather Chin Choon Sam and a Mosque.

      And no, I don’t trade novels, I trade securities.

      Thank you very much for reading this blog.

    Wow, what a pleasant surprise when I came across your blog! I am also related to Chin Kee On, author of “Malaya Upside Down”. I remember reading it when I was a kid in Ipoh. I am currently living in the United States. Is there an email that I can write to you? Congrats on your new book!

    I just finished your first book. I loved it! I found myself researching online for images of various things and places that you mentioned in your writing. Thank you for exposing me to new cultures and a wonderfully touching story.

    Hello, I’m a big fan of your Malayan Saga books. I was wondering if there were any plans to continue this series moving forward.

    • Hello Ian,

      I’ve been working hard on finishing another book in a different genre but hope to return to the Malayan Saga in future. However, I can’t give any indication of timing right now! Sorry… but thank you for reaching out!

      Best wishes to you.
