Standard 4 and the class teacher was Mrs. Cheah May Lian. I am not sure whether her name is spelt correctly. I need to find her son Mr. Cheah Tong Kim to confirm. I cannot remember much about what she taught in class but I certainly remembered her coming to my parents house to watch TV. She stayed opposite our house and I was told that her husband was killed by the Japanese.
TV sets were a rarity then. Ours was a Grundig.... and we would not have heard about Sony, Samsung or LG. It was a black and white TV about 38 inch. There were two fold able wooden doors which were used to cover the screen when the TV was not in use. And the antennae would sit on top of the set.
It was the Olympic season then and Mrs. Cheah would come over to watch her son swim in the world event. Mr. Cheah Tong Kim was an Olympic Swimmer representing Malaysia. I am not sure whether he got the gold medal but he was really hunky, someone with that enviable V shaped body.
Mr. Cheah is currently a very active Toast Master member. I see him often in church. He was the Master of Ceremony during my wedding day. Thank you Tong Kim.
