Goh Hood Keng (b. 27 February 1888, Singapore–d. 30 January 1961, Singapore) was the first Straits Chinese to be ordained a Methodist minister. He taught at the Anglo-Chinese School for almost 20 years and spent nearly four decades preaching at the Straits Chinese Methodist Church.

Early life and conversion
Goh’s parents were devout Buddhist Peranakans who nonetheless enrolled him at the Methodist-run Anglo-Chinese School when he was six years old. Curious about Methodism, he attended chapel, read the Bible and concluded that Christianity offered truth and the path to self-improvement. Many Chinese back then despised Christianity for prohibiting ancestor worship and his decision to convert angered his friends and family. His mother accused him of trying to be Westernised and made him worship idols three times daily, while his father shunned and threatened to disown him. However, Goh’s initially secret conversion in 1905 was eventually accepted. His father and three of his four siblings followed his lead, and his mother acknowledged that Christianity had made him a better person.

From : One Hundred Years’ History Of the Chinese in Singapore
By Song Ong Siang 

Mr Low Cheang Yee was born in Singapore and was educated at Raffles Institution with Tan Kong Wee, Seow Cue Mee, and Lim Thean Geow (Dr Boon Keng’s father) as his contemporaries. When the Straits Chinese British Asso- ciation was founded in 1900, Mr Cheang Yee was elected a member  of the first committee. In 1891 he was appointed a member of the Chinese Advisory Board and also served on the Committee of the Po Leung Kuk. He was a prominent member of the Teochew com- munity, and was much liked and respected by European merchants with whom he had dealings. He died in Swatow, China, in 1915 at the age of 67. The firm still carries on business at the old premises No 53 Boat Quay with Mr Low Peng Yam, the third son of Mr Low Cheang Yee, as managing partner. Mr Low Peng Yam was born in Singapore in 1876. He married a daughter of General Fang of Kwangtung fame, better known as ‘Pung Tai Jin’. He is a director of the Sze Hai Tong Bank and holds a very large portion of that Bank’s shares. Of a quiet disposition, he is a shrewd and exceedingly capable man of business.

Twenty Century Impression Of British Malaya


Mr. Cheah Chen Eok, Superintendent of the Pinang Opium and Spirit Farm, is the only son of the late Mr. Cheah Sim Hean, merchant, of Pinang. He was born in 1852, and received his education at the Pinang Free School. When he was sixteen years of age he entered the service of Messrs. Boon Tek e Co., ships' chandlers, but shortly afterwards went to the Pinang branch of the Chartered Mercantile Bank of India, London, and China. There he remained for eight years, receiving a sound financial training, and in 1876 he commenced business as a ships' chandler and general merchant under the style of Chen Eok e Co. After six years' successful trading he embarked upon opium and spirit farming, and was connected with practicallv every farm in Singapore and Pinang for twenty-five years. His management of these mammoth concerns was beyond all criticisms, and although in 1902 retired from active business, he consented to superintend the affairs of the present Penang farm at the urgent request of the syndicate. 

In 1872, he married the daughter of the late Foo Tye Sin, one of the best known Chinamen in Penang. He has six sons and three daughters, and hs won the high esteem of all classes of the community by his sterling qualities and his charitable and unassuming nature.


Mr. Cheah Tat Jin, who was born at Pinang in 1886. This gentleman received his education at the St. Xavier's Institution. In addition to his connection with the opium farm, he is a partner in the shipping firm of Keng Bee. He is a member of the Turf Club and of the Chinese Recreation Club. In May, 1906, he married Lim Kvvee Guan, third daughter of Mr. Lim Leng Cheak, late manufacturer and shipowner of Pinang. Mr. Cheah Tat Jin resides at " Eokham," Pinang

Lim Leng Cheak Family 

LENG CHEAK n CO. In Pinang are some of the largest rice and oil mills in Malaya, and it is worthy of note that they are nearly all owned by Chinese

One of the properties is the Chip Hong Bee Mill, owned by Messrs. Leng Cheak n Co. The late Mr. Lim Leng Cheak, founder of the firm, had a remarkable career. 

The son of one of the first Chinese to come to the settlement, he was born in Pinang, in humble circumstances, in 1850, and his start in life was made as a clerk in a mercantile office. A few years later he commenced business on his own account by opening a general store. By careful management he was able to save a little capital and went to Achin, where he entered into partnership with another Chinese merchant. The partners purchased one or two sailing-vessels, and did a large trade in carrying pepper from Achin to Pinang and there disposing of it. Later, they ran a fleet of steamships between the same ports, and, when his partner retired from the business in 1879, Mr. Lim Leng Cheak took over the entire concern himself. At the invitation of the Sultan of Kedah, with whom he was on terms of cordial friendship, he opened up a new enterprise - a tapioca estate - in the Kulim district of that potentate's territory. The Sultan also granted him a twenty years' monopoly in 1888, when he established a rice mill in Alor Star, Kedah. This privilege was extended to his successors, and is enjoyed by them to this day. In addition to these operations, Mr. Lim Leng Cheak planted coffee and coconuts in Kulim, Kedah, was lessee of the Opium, Spirit, and Padi Farms, and c., started a rice mill in Pinang in 1893, and became a director of the Singapore Opium and Spirit Farm. When Mr. Lim Leng Cheak died at the age of fifty-one on February 16, I901,he left an extensive and varied business of the first importance. His family consisted of fifteen children eight sons and seven daughters and his eldest son, Mr. Lim Eow Hong, is now the managing executor of the business. 

This gentleman was born in Pinang in 1878 and was educated at the Free School and at a Chinese school. He became assistant to his father at the age of seventeen, and four years later was appointed manager. His brother, Mr. Lim Eow Thoon, manages the Pinang rice mill. Messrs. Lim Leng Cheak are the owners of the Chip Bee Rice Mill, Alor Star (Kedah), the Chip Hong Bee Rice Mill (Bridge Street, Pinang), and a large tapioca mill (Kulim, Kedah). In 1899 they started a sugar mill at Alor Star. They convey their produce in their own fleet of steamers  - the Kedah line of passenger and cargo boats - have a tapioca estate embracing 14,000 orlongs in Kulim, Kedah, and are the employers of a thousand men. They import large quantities of padi and prepare both white and boiled rice in their mills. These products they supply to estates in Kedah, Province Wellesley, and the Federated Malay States, besides exporting to Ceylon, India, and Mauritius. Sugar they sell locally, and tapioca they send to London, Havre, Nantes, and many other European ports. Messrs. John Buttery e Co. are their London agents. Mr. Lim Eow Hong is one of the leading Chinese in the settlement, a member of the committee of the Free School, a director of the Straits Echo and Criterion Press, a committee member of the Pinang Association, and a part owner of the Pinang Foundry. His eldest son is being educated at Dollar, Scotland
