Googled 蔡澜's profile is recorded in some as born in SG and some as born in HK. He spent his life largely in HK and common people like me have never known he is linked to Singapore in any way though I have watched his programmes before... :slapshead: He is well-known for being a linguist??

Think someone pointed out the name for the fashion designer already, is he the one?

Dr Chee unfortunately has a lot of negative history on his shoulders due to his political activities.

Wah... you never say I really do not know such a Dr Chan exists. He is a well-known investment consultant or author of investment books??
