Before the presentation ceremony, I had time to chat with the family. Ong Kok Wah, 69 has had a stroke which still slightly affects his hand movements. He speaks mostly Mandarin and his blogposts were translated into English by his loving son. His wife told me she too has started blogging...and son Guan Hong has his own blog too.
How nice! This is a blogging family.
My warmest Congratulations to the Ong family!
