ABC Letter O for Overseas


More than 100 years ago, in 1907 to be precise, my Great Grand Father led a group of immigrants Overseas to uncharted land of Borneo. 

Then in 1970, my brother Charles went on his Overseas journey to New Zealand.

I follow suit to my Overseas journey to Canada in 1975.

At last, my latest Book, "Growing up in Borneo" is ready.  It talks about all the Overseas journeys of my siblings.

My thanks to Eve Leong for making her butterflies. They gave me inspiration. The butterfly is a symbol of Hope, Life and Endurance to the bereaved.

I didn't know about the symbolism behind the butterfly. I like it. Ever since my dad died, the first white butterfly I see each day is him saying hello to me. :-) Best wishes on your book, Ann!
