From Dirt-Poor to Philanthropy: Kuan ‘Uncle Kentang’ Chee Heng

From Dirt-Poor to Philanthropy: Kuan ‘Uncle Kentang’ Chee Heng

April 13, 2021

From Dirt-Poor to Philanthropy: Kuan ‘Uncle Kentang’ Chee Heng 

Imagine being so poor you drink tap water to fill your stomach during recess time. Or seeing your mother give her body to the sundry shop owner in return for rice. Or the smell of your dead father as he decomposes in the living room because the family cannot afford a casket.

How does that perspective compare to so many of us who spend all our time chasing money or complaining that we don’t have enough?

So when I heard Kuan Chee Heng (aka ‘Uncle Kentang’) talk to Asha Gill on LiteFM last week I found him on the Interweb and was grateful that he agreed to an impromptu interview at Ben’s Jalan Batai. 

Kuan’s story offers much-needed context in a world blind-drunk with excess, social media and greed.

Growing Money Worry Free: Akru's Julian Ng 
 
Malaysian robo-advisory Akru, founded by my good buddy Julian Ng, wants to disrupt the investment industry by introducing global exposure, diversification and affordability to more people. 

We have a fun chat about the mad world of media, money and startups (apologies in advance for the echoes and bad audio.. sorry!) 

It's about discipline.

Dr David Khoo: Taking Medicine to the Masses

Fellow Penangite Dr. David Khoo is a doctor on a mission.

He wants to democratise medicine using technology.
