Tan Sri Loh Boon Siew:
The Life and Times of a Fire Dragon
Raymond Flower, Winston Lim & Cheng Yean Loh
The history of the Chinese diaspora in Southeast Asia is peppered with rags to riches stories, some manufactured and others genuine. This biography follows Loh Boon Siew, who arrived in Penang as a labourer at 13 and died more than sixty years later as the head of a business empire that spread from Southeast Asia into Australia. Despite such a transformation, he never lost touch with his roots, preferring to relax in local coffee shops rather than smart hotels and establishing one of the main charitable hospitals in Penang. 196 pages with an index
