Mom passed away 28May2017, 1729hrs, age 63, at TTSH SICU, in the company of dear family and friends.

Born 02Oct1953 to a middle class Chinese family, Mom spent her formative years at Adam Road with her 5 siblings. Her own mother passed away when she was 14 years old, so aunt (her elder sister) became the mother figure of the family. Mom and Dad met in 1972 during their Nanyang University course, when she was 19 and he was 22. Dad dropped out after his sophomore year, whilst Mom joined the civil service 28July1975 after university - a job that she would eventually contribute nearly 42 years of loyal and astute stewardship right up to her passing. It was her first and only job with the Singapore Government. Mom and Dad married 28Jun1978. My elder brother Zhong Cai was born 21May1981; I was born 06May1985; and my younger brother Zhong Qin born 16Apr1987.
