Many did not return and they were later to be joined by their spouses and family members from China. Today the majority of the Chinese population, descendants of the early immigrants are no longer have any ties with China, they had live together with all the other races who made this country our home and help to build this nation together to what it is today and to mould into a respected progressive, happy and nature loving country.

This made Malaysia stronger and more mature as time passby and we hope to share all our uniqueness, stories and beauties to the rest of the world.
