By Chin-Chan, Ann Kit Suet
This is a hundred-year-old journal of two families, the Chans and the Kongs. It traces the first movement in 1907 from Kwang Zhou, China to the jungles of Borneo. It is a six-generational record with the second wave of movement to England, Canada, Japan, Singapore, Australia, USA... and New Zealand. The journal begins from the author's great-grandfather Chan Kwong Kouk and centres on the life of the author's father John Chan Hiu Fei until his demise in 2006. The Opium war, virgin tropical jungle, Japanese World War, colonial days, a revolution, a fight with the Communists; these were the difficulties the families had to go through.Read more
