Chua singing with the Malacca Wesley Church choir

Here is an old photo of Chua CC  singing, at the height of his career, in his church in Malacca. He was one of the best loved singer and choir master in his time. His voice was strong and warm and he sings from his heart.

Dear Friends of Chua CC,
Eight ‘Senior’ Macsians, representing the Chua Cheng Chye Fund, attended
the Malacca ACS Primary School Awards Day today,16.11.2011.:
Victor Chin (67)     Francis Lee (71)      Danny Chiew (79)
Bert Tan (85)        Teng Kim Sia (72)    Lam C.Y. (73)
Martin Wee Chye Ghee (55)                  Bien H.N. (55)
Danny Chiew spoke briefly and eloquently, in Bahasa Malaysia, on the life and time of Chua at ACS Malacca and the many contributions he made to the school. This was followed by presentation of the Chua CC Awards, consisting of a framed certificate and a RM100 book voucher, to each of five boys selected by the school for outstanding achievements. I was given the honour of making the presentation.
Lunch was served, as usual, at Bert’s Riverine Cafe.
On behalf of the Committee of the Chua CC Fund, I wish to record our heartfelt thanks to you for taking the initiative to design, print and framed the very attractive Chua CC Award certificates, which were greatly appreciated by the recipients. Mr Wong Poh Sim, the Headmaster, mentioned that he would display the certificates in the school. By this,I presumed he would make copies of the certificate for display; as I am sure the recipients would want to keep their originals at home as mementos.
Best Regards,

Bien HN

This year we prepared a four page leaflet about Chua CC and this was give out to the teachers and to the five winners of the award during the ceremony. We hope this information will be useful to everyone.  The rest of the leaflets were given to the friends of Chua who came along that day. This leaflet was prepared by Victor Chin.

ChuaCC sings Amazing Grace

The Class of 1971 had the pleasure of Mr Chua Cheng Chye (R.I.P.)  as their special guest during their Class Reunion Dinner held on 07 June 2003. In this video, CCC talked candidly about life, teaching, music and singing. He sang “Amazing Grace” towards the end of the video. Video shot by and courtesy of Mak Kai Kin. Posted by Tedin.

ChuaCC Portrait Sketch

There was always much difficulty in getting a proper portrait of CCC. All this while we have had to enlarge old group photographs to extract his portrait. Ben Toh (Class of 1979) has recently contributed his talent to help create this sketched image of CCC for our use.

We will be having signages produced for both the Dewan Chua Cheng Chye in the primary school and the Bilik Wawasan Chua Cheng Chye in the secondary school. The signages will be with the compliments of Richard Lee Meng Ngi (1970).

Sample Signages for the CCC Meeting Room in ACSS by Ben Toh (’79)

Our thanks to Ben Toh and Richard Lee for their kind support, efforts and contributions.
