Abstract:
This is Dr Wong Meng Voon (i.e. Huang Mengwen)’s original handwritten work. Based on the trickery, bribery and heartlessness of the commercial world, this story is both realistic and sarcastic. Its genre is what we now known as the “micro novel”, a very short form of story that was made popular with the great efforts of Dr Wong himself. As a working copy with amendments, this manuscript is highly valuable as it allows the reader to see the actual thinking process and constant improvisation of the author in his literary pursuits.
