My Great Grand Pa Pa (GGPP)

Last Sat was a special day... A day I got in touch with my 'roots'.

A few weeks back, Val got a rare phonecall from our granduncle. He invited our family to the National Library as he donated my great grandfather's letters to them (To Torance: They are confirmed NOT Complaint Letters! HAHA) and the opening ceremony of the exhibitions would happen on 1 Nov. My Greatgrandfather (GGfather) received letters from Zhou Enlai, the 1st Premier of China. He was a businessman and a pioneer of a town in Malaysia (my dad's hometown- Kuala Pilah). Cooooool.... I never knew that.
So on Sat, my Malaysian aunt and cousins came down to SG and we had a rather sentimental, small family reunion @ the National Library. Here are some pics!


















My granduncle Lin Qiong who donated my GGfather's letters. A Chinese writer himself.




















My GGfather!!! Lin Kong Thing (What a shuai name....)

Do I look like him?? HAHAHA!
If you say 'Yes', don't bluff!!!... My grandpa was adopted!

And here's my favorite picture from the publications...


















Guess who this couple is?

My grandparents!!! Aren't they such a handsome couple??

For those who havent seen my Ah Ma before, here's how she looked like a few years back!















Really missed my Ah Ma. But she's in a better place today. :)

Anyway, I had a good time last Saturday. And I can say I am now a proud GGdaughter!
