Malayan history from Ah Ming's experiences

What is the relation or connection between veteran communist Suriani Abdullah aka Eng Ming Ching @ Ah Ming and ex-MCA president Dr. Ling Liong Sik?

How many Indians from Malaya were conscripted by Japanese fascists to build the 'Death Railway' on the Thai-Burma border? How many survived? How many died? What were the anti-fascist activities in Perak's Malay kampongs in WWII?

Were there Indians in the Communist Party of Malaya?

Nehru met Ah Ming in Ipoh?

How did Orang Asli contribute to the anti-fascist war and the anti-colonial armed struggle?

Who was Ah Ming's first lover? Buy and read Setengah Abad Dalam Perjuangan - Memoir Suriani Abdullah (Kuala Lumpur, SIRD, 2006) to find out more about another side of the history of tanah air kita.

Saya belum membaca buku tersebut.Akan tetapi, saya tahu kisah perjuangan Suriani Abdullah, sejak muda (dalam perjuangan anti-Jepun) dan dalam memimpin Rejimen ke-10 adalah hebat.Beliau pernah memimpin Rejimen ke-10,ketika suaminya Abdullah C.D. jatuh sakit. Di samping itu, kisah percintaan beliau dengan Abdullah C.D juga hebat (saya tidak tahu adakah hal ini ada diceritakan dalam buku tersebut).

saya baru habis baca Bab 2 yang meceritakan pengalamannya dalam zaman Perang Anti-Jepun di mana beliau bawa pistol sebagai kader bawah tanah PKM disekitar Ipoh dan Tanjung Tualang. Ini sudahpun cukup hebat bagi seorang gadis yang baru berumur 18-19.
