A Story from Family History.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

To inform Third Draft Man Hong Chung A Story from Family History Jonathan Chung is the man who I have always respected and I will still do for the rest of my life. He gave me everything I have and I believe I will pay him back one day. He is a well-educated man, just like the way his father wanted him to be. I believe it is fate that has brought us together. John, now the father of two teenagers, was born in one of the largest villages in Hong Kong. This village was called Lam Tsuen and it was located in the northeast of New Territories, in Tai Po. This incredibly large village still exists today and has become one of Hong Kong's main tourist attractions. He was born on the 6th of January 1950 and had 6 siblings, 1 brother and 5 sisters. Nowadays, this may seem a lot, but in the olden days, it was a typical number of children a couple had. This was because it was the only way they could think of to improve their living standards. ...read more.

Middle

When they arrived, it was already midnight and all of the shops have closed. The airport gave him a bad impression of the country as well. The streets were wet, damp and cold. The wet atmosphere gave him a feeling of loneliness as well. This was because he was alone with his father and they had to find somewhere to stay for the time being. Everything seems so dark and damp, he felt disappointed, as England was far worse than what he had expected. It seems as though the country did not want him to be there. In order to buy those two airline tickets for Jonathan and his father, their family used up most of their savings and the pair could only afford a small room. The room had one single light bulb and the walls were old and dirty. After a week or so, Jonathan went to school so he can study and bring honor to the family. John's father wanted him to become a well-educated man and earn respect from the other villagers. ...read more.

Conclusion

Now that he achieved what his father gave him as a target, he had truly brought honor to the family and become a well-educated man. Commentary Since the first day I went to school, my father gave me an impression of a very clever and humorous man. This reason I chose to write a biography on him is because his life is far more interesting than my mother's. He traveled to many places in the world and it would take him a long time to explain all of his experiences to me. However, even though his life story is very long, I can include the interesting ones only. My way of retrieving data is combining my knowledge and asking him for any undiscovered facts. This is because, when I was still young, my father used to tell me about his experiences. Therefore, I can remember most the facts about his life off by heart. I chose to inform because in my opinion, it is easier to inform than to entertain. When you entertain, you usually add imagery and you start in the middle of things. This makes it harder to start for me. ...read more.
