No, I wasn't there on that historic day. I was in Batu Pahat, and only nine years old at the time.
But Uncle Lee was there. Read his personal account of what he saw, heard and experienced on 30 and 31 August 1957. He has done all the research, digging up old photos and songs that the older ones among us still remember to this day. Read what it was like for this mischievous schoolboy at the time to participate in the newly-independent country's first mass drill at Stadium Merdeka.
You will thoroughly enjoy reading Uncle Lee's account. He writes in that inimitable style of his that is sure to put a smile, heck, even a belly LOL, on your face as he recounts his student pranks. It's not surprising Uncle Lee has a huge fan following that includes yours truly. Even though he has long settled in Canada, he still recalls with fondness memories of the old days in his country of birth, and is happy to share them with us. And not just nostalgia, he also shares pictures of beautiful women - balm for ageing eyes!
