Village People: Hainan, Part Four – miyagi.sg

Uncle Y Y Lee outside the house he was born in. A couple of things precipitated this blog post. First, I found a link from this Hainan Island related site.. Then I remembered that my uncle (father’s brother) didn’t attend my wedding because, as my cousin informed me a day before that, that he ‘couldn’t make it, because his leg cannot lah’, and how I thought it would have been nice ...

My forefathers ate bowls of chicken droppings – miyagi.sg

“My family is descended from Confucius”, said the chubby Year 12 Boy to me when I didn’t ask about his pedigree. I must have doubted him or given him some dismissive look prior to that statement that prompted him to reveal that fact.

My Father And The Gangster Fella Lee Kuan Yew – miyagi.sg

I remember the story my father told me about the time he was a clerk in a bus company in Singapore. It was some time in the 1950s, and some of us will recall that these were troubled times.. I didn’t get much detail from the many times my father told and retold the story with much mirth and in gutteral Hainanese-accented English.

Mr Miyagi’s definitive opinion about being sued over ...

I don’t care if you say nothing about the matter, but now that you did, what you said is a disgrace to any self-respecting person. He was trying to speak his views, and got struck down by Singapore’s ever-so-convenient system of critic-killing.
