Hi! My name is Seow Kiang, and my family name is Khoo. My name
is written as Khoo Seow Kiang. Over here in Singapore, we write our family names first. In Chinese, my name is written as
My Chinese name is interpreted as follows:
(Qiu) refers to my family name.
(Shao) means young.
(qiang) means strong.
So, I am "young and strong". Get it?
As you might have already guessed, I am a Singaporean-born Chinese. I came into this world in 1964. In the Chinese zodiac, this would be referred to as the Year of the Dragon.
I got happily married in September 1995. Gek Noi is the name
of my lovely wife. She is an accountant by profession. She also
cooks, does house work, goes marketing, etc., while I sleep. Quite rare, isn't it? :)
Khoo Junior was born on 21 Jul 1998 after an emergency Caesarian operation. Apparently, his heart beat was too fast and the doctor didn't like it one bit. Later, I was told that naughty Junior was shitting in Mommy's womb.
When Junior arrived, I spent so much time yakking to him that I forgot about his mother until the nurses reminded me :p
I spent 10 years (1971-1980) in Anglo-Chinese School (Barker Road) where I finished my PSLE and GCE 'O' Levels. I continued my education in
College (1981-1982) where I finished my 'A' Levels. This was followed by two and a half years (1982-1985) of National Service.
I then pursued a Chemical Engineering course (1985-1989) in the National University of Singapore. I graduated with a B. Eng (No Honors). I am currently working as a Chemical Engineer.

I surf the net almost every day. And I love to hear from anybody, everybody.... so send me an e-mail.
I would be happy to hear from you. Now, look below here: that's our flag.

at the tip of Malaysia. On the world atlas, we may probably be
found as a dot on the map. Singapore is a very small and beautiful
