Earth day

Earth Day.

I used to write blogs on Save the Earth. This disposables cup is made of a plant, not oil https://www.ecoware.co.nz/category/coffee-cups/

The paperboard we use in our coffee cups provides superior quality and increased insulation compared to the average paperboard on the market.
Our paper is sourced from responsibly managed plantations and lined with naturally advanced Ingeo™ bioplastic. It also has a significantly lower carbon footprint than the fossil fuel based polymers that it replaces, because the manufacture of Ingeo™ emits fewer greenhouse gasses (GHGs) than the comparable manufacture of all common petrochemical-based plastic1. This innovation of turning plants into plastic allows us to exclude non-renewable resources (such as oil) from the production of our EcoCup.

Overseas and my latest book

More than 100 years ago, in 1907 to be precise, my Great Grand Father led a group of immigrants Overseas to uncharted land of Borneo. 

Then in 1970, my brother Charles went on his Overseas journey to New Zealand.

I follow suit to my Overseas journey to Canada in 1975.

At last, my latest Book, "Growing up in Borneo" is ready.  It talks about all the Overseas journeys of my siblings.

My thanks to Eve Leong for making her butterflies. They gave me inspiration. The butterfly is a symbol of Hope, Life and Endurance to the bereaved.

post card from 60 years ago.


I am a person of nostalgia. Most of my writing is about Nostalgia.
My cousin Cecillia went to her brother's house and saw two 60 years old postcards. It was posted by my Dad 60 years ago to my uncle David from England.

I was so happy to know, my cousin Vincent kept them. Cousin Vincent is the nephew of Uncle David. It was Vincent's sis Cecillia who posted this photo to me. Things like these are very precious to me, because our own things had been eaten by termites.
