It was in a house off Orchard Road, 1970s: “Eating at the table was a bit of a drama for me… because everybody would ask everyone else to eat. Father, mother, brother, sister… have your meal. By the time I asked everyone to eat, they’d finished and left the table. I’m still sitting there.”
This is a story of a young Singaporean man and a British lady who fall in love with each other in the 1960s where international marriage, especially one between a caucasian woman and an Asian man was rare and controversial affair. They told their stories of the many challenges and rewards through this heartwarming relationship, and how they have been through thick and thin together all these decades as husband and wife.
