This was published in the local Chinese Newspaper in Thailand on August 9, 2000. This Chinese newspaper in those days still had the text direction in the traditional way: vertically from right to left. My draft that I sent to the publisher was a hand-written one. In those days I had not learned how to type Chinese yet. Below are the screenshots taken from my old scrapbook.
Although it was I that wrote this, I am not sure if I could translate it into English without losing its original (what-do-you-call-it) meanings so there is only Chinese version here.
