This is a posthumous blog of our father's (Lim Kok Ann) life. When our father passed away on 8 March 2003, he left behind an unpublished autobiography. We'd like to celebrate his life by sharing his autobiography through this blog.

"I have dredged these anecdotes from memory just to pass the time; if they amuse my grandchildren their purpose will have been served; if they provide any instruction, it will be a happy coincidence; that they are disjointed is probably to be expected.

Aurora was the name of my grandfather’s house in Kulangsu.   Amoy, where I spent the first five or six years of my life.   I still have vivid memories of events that took place when I was barely three years old.

In 1995 Su Min asked me to move over and stay with his family in Cavenagh Road. I had the use of a large room in the same apartment which was my bed-room and study, and from which I commuted round the world on chess trips. Four of my children were living in Singapore, one in Canada. Stella was separated from her husband and living with Sing in Devonshire Court. Stella was continuing her successful writing career, and Sing was well established as copy writer for Inter-Ads, an advertising company. Stella’s two sons were both living in London, the older, Mark, was training to be a cardiac surgeon, and the younger son, Luke, training to be an orthodontist. Su Min and Sing Yu were living in Cavenagh Road with their son, Min Yu, a doctor doing National Service, and daughter En Yu, an Arts student in first year. Su Hui and his wife Shirley were living in Cairnhill Road with their two sons, Bernard and Christopher. Su Chong and his wife Joanna and their children, Jacqueline and Alexander, both were living in Calgary, Canada.
