My late Grandpa, Mr. Chan Kee Seng.

This is among the few photos left of my grandfather. This one was taken with my youngest sister Grace in 1975.

My dad's house was later rented out when Mum and Dad went to live in Australia. The storeroom was infested with termites. Gone were all our paper work, photo albums and all our souvenirs.

Grandpa always wore traditional Chinese emsemble which looks like fisherman style tops and pants. He had his head cropped with 1/2 inch of hair.

He was a fan of Bruce Lee and Kung Fu movies. He watched all those movies.

There was a time when a Chinese Kung Fu master beat a karate expert. Youngsters mistook him to be a Kung Fu master or See Fu. They kept pestering him to teach them. Grandpa was a Cantonese, and it was more thrilling to the non Cantonese Kids. It was as if he was a celeb from Hong Kong. We joked with him, why don't you pretend to be a Kung Fu master?
