China

(Year 2006)

This year is my 70th birthday and we took quite a long time to decide where to go to celebrate it. Japan, Vietnam, Korea, Thailand. We, or more specifically me, (Eric) wanted to go somewhere oriental, cos when I was in the army, I was drafted overseas to Malaya at the tender age of 18 and a bit. I don’t remember ever having seen a Chinese girl before and suddenly being surrounded by them (in a manner of speaking) I was completely besotted. I did want to go back to Malaya but Diane thought I should never go back because it had been so long and would have changed too much. She said better to just keep the memories. Wise words. Hence the final choice of China.

Go to Part One.
