The other day while I was having a game of chess with Beng Cheng in his jewellry shop, I saw to my pleasant surprise and with a sense of nostalgia that there was still an abacus on the top of the cashier counter. I still remember father taught me in the 1970s - when there was no calculator or computer yet - how to operate it. After learning the method for addition, I gave up for lack of patience but now it seems that the old-fashion abacus - or some modified version of it- is again used by some primary schools and private tuition classes to impart to children the traditional skills of mental arithmatics.
