Andrew Yip (Singapore)
But the Samsui Women from China came,
Braved the surging storms and nature untame.
How those alpha women matched the men
In hard and heavy work and tough trade then.
In factories, farms and fields, the fair force mustered;
Their ruggedness, resolve and resilience truly tested.
Whose honest and humble heart sought only to strive,
Who lived to toil or help others simply to stay alive.
No vanity, no comfort, far away from their land of birth,
And for ages, obscured and forgotten for all their worth.
Upon history and heritage, they now stand tall,
As Samsui Women - honoured, lifted and lauded by all.
