Who’s in Han Chin Pet Soo – Ah Foo (Episode 4)

By Ian Anderson

Ah Foo

Yong knows many of the Club members well, but none so well as Ah Foo who ‘dances’ with her almost every day. Although a wealthy tin mine owner, he has never really stopped acting like the coolie he once was. A regular gambler and Opium smoker, he can neither read nor write – but he can count!

Today Ah Foo is at the gambling table and has just had a really big win. It won’t be long before he is spending time (and money) with Yong.
