 Many of you may recognise her as "Ah Lian", the lady boss from the seafood restaurant by the sea on Ubin. She is the daughter-in-law of Hai Liang who owned the groccery shop that my mom frequented when she was a young girl on Ubin in the 1950s. Hai Liang passed away in 2009 but the family still lives on the island.

Island's remaining resident count: 38

Lianhe Wanbao the Chinese tabloid is now doing a series of interview features with Ubin residents. Look out for it! Translation of this article will follow. Thanks to Alan Tan for the alert!
