Abstract:
This represents one of Dr Wong (i.e. Huang Mengwen)’s most well-known micro novels. Set in a modern city which resembles Singapore, the story begins when a traumatised maid was thought to be jumping to her death together with the infant under her care. The troubled maid who had a sick daughter in Philippines was thought to be seeking revenge for being scolded by the boss. However the big twist to the micro novel is saved till the end – police investigations eventually showed that she jumped to protect the falling infant, sacrificing herself to save the baby.
