|Iconic sikh guards (with color today)|
Chew Geok Leong had a house in Kampong Batak, now know as Jalan Eunos, while he operated his traditional chinese medicine shop in Geylang Serai (i suspect 925 Geylang Road).
|Chew Geok Leong|
His youngest daughter, Madam Chew Chwee Eng (she was 70 years when the article was written in 1993) recounted that his father came from a family with 4 generations of chinese physicians. She also recalled that when her father was alive, he already bought the coffin and the icon sikh guards. The coffin was placed at one of the servant quarters. I have also heard oral accounts that Chew Geok Leong's tomb was commissioned when he was alive.
Chew Geok Leong passed away in 1932.
