Lim Tek Wee and Ang Geok Hoon
George L Peet reminisced about Lim Tek Wee who worked in ST as a chief clerk for up to 36 years from Jan 1889. During the later years before he died, an hour after coming to work, he would hung his black silk coat around his chair and return home, as if he was still around.
