My Grandpa

(Grandpa still with his ponytail)

My paternal Grandpa Tung Yoon Choy, came over to Malaya in the early 1900s as a young man from one of the Shuntak province in Dongguan, China. From what I am told and can vaquely remember, he use to have a shoe shop in Taiping.

He eventually gave up his shoe business in the late 1950s and retired.

It must have been hard and lonely for Grandpa during his initial years here. In due time, Grandma No.1 and Grandma No.2 were brought in from China. He had four sons and three daugthers. My father was the eldest son.
