My mother, your mother, our mother

My mother was the second generation of the Tan's family. She was born in a small town called Labis in the state of Johor, Malaysia. She was second in a family of 11 siblings. The surviving siblings are the eldest, the 5th, 6th and youngest sister as well as 3 younger brothers. Like many of her times, she went through the hardship of the second world war at a tender age of 7 to 12 years old. She used to say "IF" there was no war, she would have been more educated and would be smarter. (cont)
As the elder in the family and with more siblings that were born over the years, she needed to help around and made sacrifices. She liked to tell us stories about the war and her childhood which was blurring as times went by. (Cont)
My mother's given name, Mdm Tan Bok Lun, was also nicknamed Ah Neow by her siblings. She was born in 1933 as stated in the birth document but she always said she could be older as in the past, they did not make it compulsory to document the birth sooner. Late report of birth was acceptable and that would lead to misleading information. She said her father, that is, grandfather may have reported her birth date long after the actual date. CONT.
At the age of around 19, she married my father, Mr Ong Ah Pong aged 24 and together they have 10 children with the eldest now age 69 and the youngest age 50. Unfortunately, one of the children died at the age of 7 when he was hit by a motorbike while chasing the bus mother was abroad. It was very sad to have seen the loved one left before her. She was devastated by the loss. But that never stopped her to put herself together and moved on to raise the other 9 children, now happily grown up with their own family.
