My father grew up in Singapore but came with his entire extended family to London in the 1960s to open the first Singapore restaurant in England where he worked as a chef and business partner with his mother and aunt. He was a happy and generous man, always helping others and always laughing! Even in retirement, he offered his services to cook his famous Hainanese Chicken Rice for 300 people at his church on Sundays. Everyone knew him fondly as Uncle Morris. His interests included Tai Chi, collecting antiques and, of course, food.
