Something different for a change. No politician-bashing. No yummy food write up. This is not about 1Boleh or whatnots. It's all about good old fashioned love.

Spread the love, baby. :D

Interesting. I notice there are more of these couples at some of these places like YMCA where couples in their 60s and 70s are waltzing away happily at the Ballroom Dancing sessions, at the Chinese Swimming Club etc... there seems to be lotsa these couples here on this island... maybe its the air and the water from the Air Itam Reservoir???

Yes, I was very touched by this story. May both my husband and I leave together rather than leave one behind to mourn ;)

Statement 1
It was love at first sight when they met and their marriage lasted 66 years.

Statement 2
My dad was a surveyor and happened to be in the town. He was 24 while my mum was 16.

Statement 3
The love between Ho Khye Soo, 90, and his wife Ong Phin Nyar, 82, seemed so great that even death could not separate them when they passed away about three hours apart.

Statement 4
Hos first wife, with whom he had three children, died 10 years ago.

From the above 4 statements, Ho must have married his first wife when he was younger than 24 years old. Ong must be the second wife.

So this must be a extra ordinary union for the triple for 56 years and a super marvelous whammy for the double during the last 10 years. I believe such marriages must have been made in heaven. Read their two-in-one obituary in The Star today to know about their family tree.

really syiok to see old people still holding hands and looking at each other, oblivious to others around them.... :)

nowadays, a lot of couples tend to find the easy exit the moment the going gets tough ~ especially when it involves debts and money.

.... God bless these old folks.

we only live life once... and to have a partner to share that one life - till the end, would be the best thing to happen to anyone...

Romeo was sweet talking to Juliet under a coconut tree. Romeo said he loves Juliet to death and will do anything for her. Juliet likewise said the same. Suddenly a coconut fell from the coconut tree. Romeo quickly raised his hand and covered his head.

This is TRUE LOVE. Not boy meets girl and live happily ever after.

Shouldn't it be "Romeo quickly raised his hand and covered her head."?

Then it'll only be TRUE LOVE la.

Then it'll only be TRUE LOVE la.Or "Romeo raised his hands, caught the coconut, cracked it open and offered her a drink, all in one smooth motion."

That's TRUE LOVE .... with STYLE.

True love = my definition :) after the inital rush of lust and romance: When you can be your TRUE SELF and be happy and comfortable with the person you are with ... no need to hide or pretend - warts, pimples, goosebumps and all .... :D

There was once a customs superintendant for Johore whom I came to know in the mid 80s and he had 4 wives - all Chinese converted to Muslim - and they live in the same big house in Taman Perling in the outskirt of JB. I knew him as I was importing on behalf of my employer Nescafe from Australia and Nespray from Denmark those days through Pasir Gudang port and we both love to do deep-sea fishing off Mersing.

I asked him how was married life with 4 wives all in the same house?

His reply, multiply the headache by 4 and divide the fun by 4 and you will know how I live my life. :D

In Penang, it is NOT uncommon for a Chinese man to have more than one especially those rich old timers.
In some cases, even sisters, as compensation! :eek:

Seriously, is it a good idea to have all four wives in the same house?

Well, the late Yeap Chor Ee's 2 wives and families living in the same mansion, although different wings, the left wing and the right wing, and he lives in the main centre block at the famous mansion (now turned into Wawasan University) is legendary...

But even then, after his death the two wives (and their children) fought a widely-publicised court case for the fortune (Ban Hin Lee Bank later known as BHL Bank....).

One wife, two wives or more ....or even a harem ... as long as everyone is happy with the arrangement and situation - settled, otherwise, not worth the aggro ..... too much resentments and bitterness and unhappiness that will be passed on to the next generation innocent kids ....

We climb up
The stairways to heaven
We find Love waiting there
We Make Love
Just Me and My Baby
We Go Up To
The Room at the Top of the Stairs....

Here it is, sung by Stella "Not As Big As Dolly" Parton:
