One year in the 90s, I returned to Sarawak for a visit. It was an unexpected meeting with my uncle David Kong , Mum's brother( on the right) in Kuching. He had flown from Miri.
More unexpected was meeting Mum's cousin Kong Sieng Hun. ( left) I remembered him like when I was in primary school. It was only later that I was told he held a position akin to the Mayor of Sibu. Come to think of it, I had treated him as mum's cousin. Luckily, I was not disrespectful.
Uncle David commutes between Miri and New Zealand. He is my only relative here. Blood is thicker than water.
