He is a very very old gentleman these days. Having lived for over a hundred years, he has come to accept his longevity. But lately he has noticed once again the beginnings to another set of subtle changes about to happen.
Now officially named Orlando Toh, he has married and have children. They in turn marry and have their own children. Living as he is now for up to a hundred years and more, he rues watching loved ones come and go.
Now, still living in ultra modernized Chow Kit in vastly developed Malaysia, he mostly contends himself with a quiet life, living under the same roof as his surviving great great granddaughter. And she is now herself eighty years old, with her own grown and married children, and in the course of things, she has her own grandchildren, even a young son.
This old woman will be planning his great great grandfather's ultimate birthday.
And in the end what will happen to Orlando?
All these mixed signals make for a refreshing and an atypical debut collection of prose, experimental writings, flash fiction, and short and long stories from Leon Wing.
