Thanks for your good work.

While everyone praised Wong Nai Siong so highly without looking at the other side of the history, I have a mixed feeling. I wonder why he brought these workers to Sibu. Did he make a money deal with the Rajah, and using that money for assisting with the revolution in China? In modern terminology, this is known as the snake head, although it was not illegal during that time. As the descents of the Foochow settlers, we have the rights to know about the truth.

Hello uncle Philip. Today we are going to send Brownie for third injection. Brownie eats a lot and very heavy now. I cannot carry Brownie now.
