Dol who loved football Jaya for whom blindness became a blessing Zul when he discovered the joy of wind in his face A man looking for love and asam pedas Habibah who celebrated her wedding in the pouring rain Joo Nee, daughter or daughter-in-law? Glamorous Black Cat and her secret identity Si Badang whose back was crooked but whose heart was straight and true These are stories of a time when the air was fresh and life flowed gently. Stories of old-time Johor Bahru when it was a small country town graced by a tree-lined esplanade running along the sea. Stories of people who have been challenged by fate but who challenged their disabilities. Like the boy who played football with one leg, the blind girl who could make rempah with the batu giling, the paraplegic who found mobility with a motorbike, a woman who found happiness despite a lame leg, and the hunchback whose heart was straight and true. These are stories dedicated to the memory of Dato’ Dr. Lim Kee Jin who was deeply involved in the welfare of disabled people. Inserted in between these stories are photographs of his art works, sculptures that represent decades of artistic explorations into wood.
