Batam (Antara Bali) - Billionaire Indonesian Chinese Liem Sioe Liong passed away at the age of 95 in Singapore on Sunday evening, senior Liason Officer PT Bintan Inti Industrial Estate, Jamin Hidayat, confirmed.
According to adrianliem.multiply.com, Liem Sioe Liong was born in Haikou, Fujian province in 1916.
He was an avid learner with a stunning memory, and was enrolled in his village's private school at age 7.
Unfortunately, poverty put a stop to his schooling days and at 15, his family rented a shophouse for him in the village to run a stall selling noodle-soup.
But then his stall was forced to shut down amidst the pandemonium of war, and in 1935, Liem's father passed away, and the family burden fell upon the shoulders of his mother.(IGT)
