About the Book

What is it like to be born into an extended Peranakan family that has seen better days? Besides poverty, there’s strife when some don’t pull together. However, I had a wise Grandma, Dad, and Aunt. Reading transported me into a world of joy, and soon I loved learning for its own sake. The Scriptures challenged me to seek the kingdom of heaven when I was at university. Why should I teach in Selangor rather than my beloved hometown, Penang? Could I rely on God? On several occasions, I realized that God blessed me just on time! I tried to influence my students to be intrinsically motivated. I tried to nurture a passion for knowledge. Besides teaching, I researched to facilitate the learning of my students. How could I manage caring for an aging aunt, but by God’s mercy? How would I cope with my health issues, uncertain if healing would come? Would all the events, and my responses to them, show that I worship an all-powerful, merciful God in whom I can trust?
