Fong Chong Pik, or Fang Chuang Pi or Lee Ping, or “The Plen”, as he was variously known, spent his twilight years, post-1989 Peace Accord, contemplating and writing about his life on the flip side of Malayan history. Longing to return home at last but never allowed to, he was acutely aware of how he – and the Left-had been written out, or excoriated, in the official accounts of Singapore’s independence struggles.
