hello juliana,

as i understand from your msg you've returned to the chua village .. ? it is also my familyname and i have heard from old family members that we're from swatow.. i've been trying to locate the chua village for a while now .. do you happen to know what the name of the village is?
it would mean a lot to me .. thanks..

later.. cyril

: ```To answer Wu Lin about the surname Chua, I am a Chua. As far as I know it is a Teochew clan name with it's origin in Southeast China.```I visited Chao-an (near Shantou) recently and met many old relatives for the first time. Many of them had the name Chua and all spoke Teochew dialect as I do in Singapore when visiting my family.

```Now I am married to an Oxford writer and am learning good English - I hope. ```Sincerely yours Juliana from S'pore. Oh, P.S. My husband's latest book is, TO PLEASE A CHINESE WFE, it's on they are very nice people.
