About this event

Description

A commemorative tour!

2021 is the 155th birth year of Sun Yat Sen, Father of Modern China! In celebration of the timeless values of ideals and tenacity, join me, Kevin Phun for a Zoom tour led by Chan Sue Meng, author of "Road to Revolution: Dr. Sun Yat Sen and His Comrades in Ipoh" and a great, great granddaughter of Lee Guan Swee, one of Sun Yat Sen's most loyal supporters.

This walk into Ipoh's history stops at six points, with interesting sights along the way.

Date: 11 October 2021

Time: 5pm - 6:30pm (GMT+8)

Language: English

"Let us take you back in time to 1908 to Ipoh, the wealthy tin capital of Perak, the world’s largest tin depository. It is a pitch black night. The silence is so loud, you could’ve heard a pin drop. In a dark deserted alley, the backdoor of a shop house silently opens. Out creeps a man who scurries down the alley, disappearing into the thick night.

Famously known as “Father of Modern China”, Dr. Sun Yat Sen was chased out of Ipoh with sticks and stones when he first arrived to rally support, yet Perak ultimately became a top fundraiser for his revolutionary efforts that toppled the Qing, ending millenniums of feudalism.

Chan Sue Meng - author of “Road to Revolution: Dr. Sun Yat Sen and His Comrades in Ipoh” - takes us through Ipoh’s historic quarters to discover this lesser-known story, and visit former sites of protagonist who dreamed his dream."
