Unexpectedly Miss L M Chong has passed away. The Lady Tea Master from Jiang Dian.
In her very early 60's a bad attack of asthma has robbed the Chinese Tea community in Kuala Lumpur of one of it's most colourful characters.
Under normal circumstances news of her death would have spread rapidly, and many people would have attended her funeral. She passed away the day before Chinese New Year's Eve, the 2 weeks of Chinese New Year are a time of jollity, with hope and laughter, accordingly only a few close friends and family were informed, so as not to sadden others at this festive time.
The news is just now circulating Chinatown.
