This morning I had breakfast in a mamak stall in Petaling Jaya with Mr. C.H. Tay (郑昭贤), a retired chief of the international news desk of Sin Chew Jit Poh who first taught me in 1996-1997 how to manage the daily operations of selecting and editing international news. Mr. Tay, 65, served the desk from 1973 for 28 years thereafter without interruption until his retirement in 2001 and he now enjoys touring different parts of China and Southeast Asia, writing and reading with more leisurely pace. He is currently reading Thomas Friedman' s The Earth Is Flat and also learning how to blog his thoughts and writings.
