UNRAVELLING THE NAME OF HOUSE CALLED BIN CHAN

To verfiy the identity of Boey Chuan Poh, API's Raymond Goh did a historical background check and reveal, among other things, this Obiturary:-

Translated, it meant:-

Boey Chuan Poh was a honorary gentleman who contributed much to society, He has been in the newspapers industry for more than 20 over years, and always seek for the welfare and benefits of humanity and the world, irregardless of political ideologies. His comments and opinion were accurate and has been appreciated by locals and foreigners. His death due to sickness was sudden and everyone was sadden by his early demise.


Yet his name suffered an injustice by being the person who attributed the naming of a Villa named as Bin Chan House (now Wang Qing Yuan – Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall), as being named after his concubine or Mistress.
