World Chess Champion V Anand

Dear kids (and adults), remember when your parents keep telling you to eat your greens 
and that you'll be healthy and smart? Well here's some news for those who do not 
already know -  V Anand is a vegetarian! Yes. 
So apart from you doing your chess tactics and stuff, I think you should 
Eat Your Greens! (:
 


An old newspaper article from the early nineties.


Alexander Tolush simultaneous chess match


Coach Loo Swee Leong (left) and National Master Tan Khai Boon (right) at the 
venue of the  Cheras Junior Age Group in July 2013. It was a pleasant surprise to 
to see my two friends from Penang. 


At this year's Merdeka Team Championships with another old friend from 
Penang, Quah Seng Sun (right). A writer and chess columnist, Seng Sun 
is also an International Arbiter (IA) and a very strong player. 


Compare Jarrel's (left) hypnotic stare with that of the great Alexander Alekhine. 
A future world champion? Little Jarrel has 'perfected' his stare, 
now he just needs to work on his game! All the best young man. 

             

Chan Mun Fye
(1946 to 2013)  

   Chan Mun Fye was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 1946 and passed away peacefully in July 2013 at the age of 67. 

   Mun Fye, who emerged the Malaysian Chess Champion in 1973, represented Malaysia in two Chess Olympiads. Due to work and family commitments, Mun Fye took a long break from chess, a break that lasted for more than  two decades before returning to the game that he loved so dearly in 2007. His first tournament after his return was the 1st Russian Embassy Chess Open 2007 in Kuala Lumpur.

                          Mun Fye is seated furthest to the right. 


In deep concentration against his former national team-mate, Dr Wahid Karim.

     I knew him to be a quiet and humble man. He always displayed calm no 
matter what situation was. My friend, if you are reading this, let me tell you that you 
will be missed by your chess buddies.
