I immigrated to Singapore 64 years ago when I was 23 years old. I've built my whole life and family here. We went through tough times in the 1950s when all allowances for government servants were cut off. Nonetheless, we got through those hard times.
I've been in LTA and my work involves the surveying of land and sea. My greatest satisfaction in the job is in the building of primary schools around the country during the time when there were not enough schools.
Singapore is my home and I would never leave this place.
