My grandpa died very young. There was poison in the wine.
He had built grudges with another Mogul when he bought land at Jardines Lookout and when the chicks at the whore house rushed to service him instead of that Mogul.
Grandmother was with 3 children. All under 12.
I was wondering how she is so strong running everything all by herself.
In fact she wasn't alone. She was with Grandpa all along.
She had some Mau Shan people implanted grandpa's hair inside her throat.
So when she made some sound, he could be summoned around.
All the years she has been running the household fine.
Because of that Mogul, the whole family has been staying very low profile. And we have not moved to Jardines Lookout to live there.
Grandpa built a white paved road there it is named
Lun Wai Ling Lane and planted daffodils there, even put rabbits there
for the children to play with and to ward off the snakes.
They used to live at Boundary Street and ran a rattan ware store.
The airplane seats used to be made with rattan in the early 1900's.
Grandpa used to wear plain and even knit with the workers there.
And fixed his own car....
He brought grandmother to England for child birth thinking someday the whole family would return to England.
He swam in the River while grandma sunbath with the kids.
He picked up my papa and threw him into the water to make him swim...
the way how papa threw me into the water to make me swim..
Daddy was mad at grandpa for this and so I also was mad at my papa for this and I would not speak to him for a week.
Grandpa is a philanthropist, set up a foundation to donate to Communist Chest every year. Daddy is just an government servant. Grandma did not continue the rattan factory after the Sino Japanese war.
And we grow up in middle class environment. Never actually moved to Jardines Lookout. We plan to keep the land as is and built some kiosk there for people to hide from the rain. The path is around 2miles and at the end there is a round about with a sign telling the tales of my grandpa. A lot of people jog there in the morning without knowing it is private land.
