Profile for user Cjeam8:

A Canadian Born Chinese only child of a late Jim Kar Son (Karl Jeam) who lived in Hong Kong, but was orphaned by the time he was 14.  In my mother's recent death, found a letter that connects me to my father's past, and am seeking assistance to find descendants of this Education Officer and Good Samaritan.  Without his help, my father would never have gotten the education he did nor would I have had the great privilege to be in the position I am.

I hope to share this story and hope that others can help me track down the key person or his family so that I can also express my eternal gratitude for the kindness and generosity they demonstrated to make that all happen.

Hi, I was born in the late 70's. I obessed the Shek Tong Tsui Prostitution history in the 20's. I had some study of the one of the prostitute "Chu Shu Chuen". She buried in Aberdeen Chinese Permanent Cemetery and I believe she's the only prostitution allowed to bury in such a well-know cemetery with all the famous celebrity. 

Also, I wrote stories about the old houses in HK, I enjoyed research the history background of the house and the owners.
