My deepest condolences to the family of Sim Ah Kow.
I got this sad news from my Say Khor (late dad’s youngest sister) of the passing of my cousin brother (the eldest son of my late Tua Pek, the eldest brother of my dad).
My previous posting of this cousin brother of mine can be read here .
I can vividly remember of Ah Kow when I was around 10 years old in Padang Serai where he would always fight with another cousin brother, Ngu Kia. Both of them are always in conflict. We used to stay together in my late dad’s hardware shop, both of them were helping dad in his business. Behind dad’s shop there were lots of coconuts trees, Ah Kow used to catapult for bats up the trees, skin them, marinate with curry powder and deep fried for crispy bats delicacy. That was the time I was brave enough to taste bats. Would not do it again…
May you rest in peace, Ah Kow.
