FAMILY TREE OF OUR FOUNDER



FAMILY ROOT OF OUR FOUNDER
Very warm welcome to this Uplifting blog,

It is a very good practice to put on record, the family roots of our founder. In this connection, please permit our founder to take this opportunity to record his family roots while he is still around, with the objective to complete as much as possible during his life. He will update you should he obtained any additional information on this. He always welcome anyone who possesses any of his family's information and encourage the person to either contact him or provide in the comment below for him to complete his mission. He may take his mission to China to trace back his ancestors.
                      His Grand father and Grand Mother

His Grand father, from his father's side, Oh Kong Sze, and his father are the first generation who migrated to South East Asia to find their fortune. They are from the Province of Nan Aun, the Hokkien Province of China. His grand father died of cancer in November 1961, not long after the founder's birth. He was a merchant, who left behind few leased properties for his grand mother to survive by collecting rental income to sustain her remaining life after his death. His grandfather had carried out a business venture in Penang.

His grand mother was also from China. Both his grand parents brought two of their children to Penang whereas the other son, somehow landed in Indonesia. They had managed to locate him after more than a decade of efforts and time finding his whereabouts.


                                      His uncle and auntie

His father migrated to Penang as a teenager and he does not know his actual age and his age was manipulated in order to obtain the necessary traveling documents to migrate out from China to Malaysia. He was involved in various trades and passed away in 2002 at the age of slightly more than 70 young in 2002.

Append below please find the memorial advertisement we put up at his  anniversary for your viewing pleasure.




His mother born in Penang and was given away to her adopted parents after birth. However, she managed to trace back her biological parents after her adopted mother passed away. Her biological mother survived and nearly surpassed 100 years, had passed away about a decade ago. Append below is her death certificate for record purpose. 


Though both his parents are illiterate, one thing they are proud of is the fact that five out of seven children received first degrees from public universities. The highest record of achievement in his dwelling place in Penang. Today, 5 out of seven have migrated to Selangor to earn their living at the time of writing, leaving behind his eldest and second youngest brothers in Penang.

His eldest brother began work at the age of below 13 years old, dropped out from the school, to supplement and support our family at that time. He is blessed with the most number of children, 3 daughters and two sons, amongst his siblings.

Followed by his elder sister who is blessed with one son and two daughters. Two of her children are in England, one working whereas her daughter is studying in one of the universities in UK.

Our founder is blessed with two sons and one daughter. Currently all of them are in the private school and college. He hope that one of his children will take over to maintain this blog one day for the rest of his descendants and the whole world at large.

His younger brother blessed with one son and one daughter. Both are currently studying in the public secondary schools.

Another younger brother is blessed with one son of less than a year old.

The other brother younger than the one before him is still single whereas his youngest brother is married but has no child yet.

That's all for the time being and this article will be updated should there be any new development.

CHINESE "BOUND FEET LADIES"

For centuries, girls in China had their feet wrapped and bound to be only 3 inches long. Having "bound feet" was a status symbol, and helped women marry into money.Millions of Chinese women would undergo "foot-binding" so that their feet would look like "three-inch golden lotuses". This process would normally start at a young age, when girls' feet were still soft enough to warp into a small shape. The process was very painful; it took many years for bound feet to achieve the desired "lotus" shape, and it severely restricted the women's ability to walk for the rest of their lives.
