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?
