This Tea Talk is specially arranged for ERA members and any other interested party who would like get a glimpse of some historical moments in days of Malaya. Members pay a token of RM10.00 while non-members pay RM20.00 to cover ad- ministrative and refreshment costs. Payment by cash at time of registration.
This is an opportunity to look back at some of the historical events that occurred during the early days of the independence of Malaya, particularly the evolution of Malaysian Chinese settlements during the period of Communist insurgency.
This talk will give a better insight into the environment and conditions of the earlier generation of Malaysia Chinese that had settled in early Malaya during the earlier part of the 20th century.
We hope that members will take back some interesting and perhaps challenging moments that were experienced by Malaysian Chinese settlers who made Malaysia their home.
