Can you imagine my surprise when I came across this autographed photo of the late Tunku Abdul Rahman in my grandma's possession? I asked my aunt about it and she said: "He was a family friend. He knew your grandfather as they went to school together. He was a great man. He gave me away at my wedding in place of your grandfather (my grandfather was assassinated at the hands of communists when my aunts and dad were very young children). He gave me a silver tea set for a wedding present before he gave me away." I think my jaw was on the floor for a while... Happy Merdeka to all Malaysians... it's amazing how history ties us all together.
